My Swiss chalet treehouse: final touches

The next step was to finish the roof structure in preparation for the steel roof, ordered from Dunn Lumber.


We chose a red roof to match some of the red tile and rusted steel roofs of some chalets in Switzerland. G. also provided some sample-size windows – two on the South side and one on the North side.


For the finish, I sided the walls and the “basement” with fence boards, and designed the deck railing based on my ancestors’ house in Switzerland.


I added a wooden ladder (on the right) and the kids stacked the obligatory firewood below the deck.
