AT HOME WITH LYNNE KNOWLTON
“It all goes back to a time when we were kids, and we tucked ourselves in blanket forts made from sofa cushions and cardboard boxes. We had secret handshakes, water balloons, and clubhouse passwords. No one else was allowed in our magical fort, unless, of course, they knew the secret password.
“Most of the treehouse is made from reclaimed, upcycled items. The walls of the treehouse were created from a reclaimed barn. Some of the walls are barn board, and one wall is built from the barn tin roof.
“There is a big ol’ red slide on the side of the treehouse! The slide was reclaimed from a school playground and was originally destined for the landfill. It’s fun; even my 85-year-old Grandma loves it.
