Backyard Tree House Tour

Backyard Tree House Tour via

If  you’ve been reading my blog this week, you know my husband hired a builder and has been working on a REAL tree house in our yard while we were on vacation in Oklahoma!!

This is the cardboard tree house I had designed. Basically I was thinking wooden shack on a small deck. What we got was WAY better!

I hope you enjoy the tour! We are more than excited about our new tree house. My son’s first reaction was to stop in place, then run back and hug his dad before running off to the tree house.

Dad did an awesome job!! We love him very much!

Over on my Facebook page, there is a discussion going on about what to name the tree house. Here are some good ones:

  • Locurto Loft
  • Locurto Lounge
  • Living Inn Locurto
  • Hoot Inn

Do you have an idea for a tree house name?

  1. That is a seriously amazing treehouse!

  2. May I move in? It’s amazing!

  3. wow, thats amazing!!! beyond!

  4. WOW….that is one tree wrapped in a treehouse!!!! I like Locurto Loft too….have you decided on a name yet?

  5. WOW!! I just linked my husband to the site to show him the amazing job. He doesn’t know much about handy man work but would love to learn…just not quite there yet. So did your husband help the builder build it or just help design it? Do you mind sharing the builder’s info…I would love to give my kids an awesome tree house like this one, one day. Baby #2 is due next month and my oldest will be 2 in September!

  6. Wow, it is spectacular! How about “Inn the Leaves”?

  7. That is FABULOUS! I can actually picture MYSELF having sleepovers there. Unbeknownst to the kids, of course. :)

  8. Wow! What awesome skill! I love it… you and the kids will make a ton of memories in the tree house that will last a lifetime.

    I don’t have kids but I do have trees and this makes me want to go out and make a tree house… thinking it would make a great “guesthouse” . Thanks for the tour!

  9. That is AMAZING! I’m sure your family will enjoy it thoroughly!

    So INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a treat to come home to. How are you going to decorate inside?!

  11. Amy – LOVE IT!! What fun. We had grand plans of a tree house for years, since we live in the woods, but it never happened. I can vicariously live through you. :)

  12. That is too cool for words! I think their house is nicer than my neighbor’s. :)

  13. Tree House Tour on @livinglocurto, including a cardboard tree house model that would be fun as a toy

  14. I am soooooo jealous of your treehouse! I want one for me!!!!

    The only thing that I can remember wanting as a child was a cubby house…at one stage, a friend and I started to build one but it didn’t get very far! We never got one. Guess I’ll have to make sure my kids get one and live vicariously through them!

  15. Awh! She’s a doll! The magazine cover was so fun to do!

  16. WOW! You could charge rent! Beautiful!

  19. Wowzers! That is super fantastic!!! What a dream treehouse!

    Cielo Casa (sky house)

  20. Fabulous…every kid should have a dad that builds him a tree house.
    Our Grandchildren love our “Coyote House” I’ve spend many a night sleeping out there with them looking at stars….life doesn’t get any better.
    Lucky boy…fabulous tree home. =)

  21. That is officially the COOLEST tree house EVER!!! My kids would be in heaven. I am sure they will have a blast in there…what a nice Daddy! Now it just needs a Mom’s touch for some decor (although the welcome mat is a nice touch)

  22. Hola, muchas felicidades, me encanto su casa del arbol! es preciosa!

  23. WOW!!!! It looks amazing. When I come home, I come home to a messy house and dirty dishes. 😉

    • @Amanda @ Serenity Now,

      You should see the inside of the house right now. The tree house makes up for all the cat hair and dust every where:-)

  24. that is amazing! What a fabulous job, and a wonderful surprise!!!

  25. WOW! That is amazing! I love the swings underneath. Can I come over and decorate?

  26. This leaves me speechless. I dare not show my own kids.
    I think Little Locurdo Loft is fitting.
    Congratulations on your new crib.

  27. HOLY CRAP! That’s unbelievable!!! How gorgeous…suddenly, the 8 yo version of JJ is feeling very jealous. Ha!

    I like Locurto Loft. : )

  29. Wow – that thing is nothing short of EPIC! I love it!!! I kind of like the name Living Inn Locurto. I’m a Spanish junkie, so I also love La Casita Locurto (the little Locurto house)!

  30. So cool. I want to come and play.

  31. I LOVE IT!!!!!…… first reaction was “my hubby didn’t do anything like THAT while we were gone for 4 days!”

    • @TidyMom,
