slb2724~ here's another picture I found which shows more of the whole thing at once (the underside of the roof has been stained white since this was taken):


bongirl5~ I'd say in all it was probably about $2000. That's including the wood, hardware, stains, accessories, shingles, perimeter, weedblocker and woodchips, a new jigsaw... Wink So not cheap by any means, but it's custom, and big enough that they'll play with it for many years, and I'll be able to sell it since I made it to come apart some day. I made a big excel sheet and price-shopped. The local lumberyard was cheapest, and on top of that gave me like another 5% off since it was a big order - that was nice!

I need to give some credit to my FIL - he helped me a lot with the roof, which was impossible to do alone, and gave me a bunch of wood from his old deck for underneath the shingles, so that saved me some money there too.

That's so awesome.  Cutting the cost in half! I hope the kids know how lucky they are to have such a crafty mama!

I don't have the belt, but I do have all the tools. Cheesy  Occasionally I even let my husband borrow them! Smiley
