From the Department of Awesome Grandparents comes these photos of an amazing tree house, perhaps better described as a tree mansion, that Steve and Jeri Wakefield had made for their grandsons, Lincoln and Sullivan Scott, outside their home in Dallas, Texas.
Designed by family friend and architect James Curvan, this spectacular 100 square foot playhouse, fully equipped with electricity and air conditioning, sports two sleeping lofts, two decks, a crow’s nest, climbing wall, rope ladder, suspension bridge, and even a zip line.
The Wakefields’ grandsons were in preschool when Curvan built the tree house. “Some kids have a hard time with ladders, so I created a staircase with four landings,” the architect says. “That way even little ones can feel secure and safe on their way to the top.”
But it gets better. Now that their grandchildren have grown up, the Wakefields invite neighbourhood kids to come play in the tree house mansion. They must be pretty popular on their block. We’re guessing that these are also the sort of awesome folks who give out full size candy bars for Halloween.
