The Clubhouse- Phases Three, Four and Five

Standard

PHASE THREE: POSTS AND FRAME

This phase began with Matt cutting down part of our neighbor’s tree. That’s when I began to realize just how tall this clubhouse is going to be.  Look at those tall posts! The plan was for the tall posts to hold up the roof.  Right now we are debating about adding a roof at all- just for the sheer size. With just the posts, we can minimize the obnoxious view the neighbors might see from their backyard.

Matt had to get into some tricky positions to drill these posts and frame together- plus drilling the posts to the base.

It seemed like all of the kids took turns helping Matt. This wasn’t a big group project (there would be way too many hands).

Whenever it was time to carry a section of the clubhouse frame/posts into place,  Matt called in the big guns. Ashlyn.

The posts and frame are finished!

PHASE FOUR: JOISTS

This was the simplest phase! It went so quickly!

PHASE FIVE: FLOORING!

It took a few flooring panels to get in the groove, but one we got the hang of it, the flooring went pretty quickly. Jackson was Matt’s constant helper. He wanted so badly to sit up there with Matt!!
