Home Sweet Home

So we haven't posted in a while and, unbeknownst to us, Mark has alerted us to the fact that he has 'legions of people' around the country reading the blog! This is wonderful, we had no idea anyone outside of the family was checking up on us...

The Flackett-Levin family journeyed back to the Beverly abode last week looking very rested from their East Coast escapades. We are very happy to have them back and it was refreshing to have some new faces around as its been our team here alone and we needed some revitalizing. Finn and Franny have been very loyal to offering their help, though it is hard to find tasks safe and satisfying for them. Their enthusiasm has been more help then they know, according to Finn when you see the treehouse you 'just might be amazed'! We were recently told that the treehouse has a tall order to fill as we must be ready to roll for Franny's birthday, but we'er excited about the idea of a bunch of kids exploring our creation. Mark and Jen have been wonderful about offering up new ideas and it has been great how interested all of their visiting friends have been (can't wait till you all get to see it finished!)

As far as the treehouse we have been concentrating on finishing the frq.2 so it probably doesn't look like we've made much progress in the pictures but their are a lot of little tweaks to make it perfect. We purchased and stained all of the wood for the frq.0 and will be starting on cabling the second treehouse and installing the floor this week. There have been much ideation this week with Mark and we have made some changes. A new entry system for the frq. 2 is being developed and we're entertaining some new zipline locations.
