I dreamed of a treehouse #2

The problem with a circular tree house is obtaining the brackets to support it. I found nothing standard that would suffice, so drawing my own plans I had a friend who is a really fine construction contractor, Cliff Muller, and he took my drawings and had the brackets made up for me. My son Roddy cut the mortises for the steps of the ladder up to the deck. It seems we are not alone in our passion, for Smithsonian Magazine, the Los Angeles Times and many books have been written about tree houses.
