A father-of-four has spent eight months building a fantasy fort tree house – complete with rope bridge and pulley – for his children to play on.
Amazing footage shows mechanical engineer Jared Geddes, from Maple Valley, Washington, beavering away during his spare evenings to create the wooden castle.
Working on his home’s ground floor, Jared cut to size and placed Vine Maple trees that his neighbor had chopped down, allowing the fort to gradually take shape.
A father-of-four has spent eight months constructing a tree house inside for his children
Mechanical engineer Jared Geddes from Maple Valley, Washington, filmed himself beavering away on spare evenings to make the castle
Amazing footage shows him building the dream play area (And even sometimes getting help)
Heartwarming footage shows Jared first removing bark from the trees before attaching wooden planks to the walls to hold up the tree trunks.
He then installs painted wooden floorboards and creates barriers out of large sticks, to stop the children falling off.
The loving father also threads planks onto some metal wire to create a bridge.
Footage also captures him carefully carving the staircase, with the help of his son, and walls with windows for the children to hide behind, along with a door.
He used Vine Maple trees that had been chopped down by his neighbour to build it
Video shows the children playing in the structure, which also had camouflage and lights added to it, after the construction
He installed special barriers made of large branches to stop his kids from falling out
For the final touches he adds a wooden roof, pulley system, camouflage netting, and lights to create the perfect hiding place.
The last moments of the video show his four children charging around the fantasy fort, leaping off it onto bean bags, and brandishing plastic swords.
The total cost of the amazing climbing frame was $500 for tools and other materials.
