    If I was a little closer I'd be in for it. I would even bring tools. OH!!! just remembered that Nebraska football has a home game on Saturday.
    I also have to get things done before I have sinus surgery on Monday.

    Because the frame of the tree house is actually studded up from the floor 4 feet, I just used pipe strap and deck screws to the top plate. The frame of pipe, when lying on the ground, was a reactangle with sections about every two feet. Parts were elbows, t's and pipe. Oh and the glue. I have the frame actually on the ground for repairs from the last storm that went through so I will try and get a pic for you. I have been rather happy that it has been up for about three years with several good wind storms and only lately damaged.
    Now for some round about demensions.. Side wall of tree house was 4 ft tall. In the middle of the arc of the top was about 7.5 ft. tall.

    I hope this helps... Pics..........I know.... I will get them asap.
