Tree Top Bungalow

TreeTop Bungalow sits high on a mountainside, offering magnificent views of the surrounding California landscape. This custom-designed playstructure was built as a series of terraces. The level changes accommodate the landscape design, which makes use of multi-tiered retaining walls to carve flat play space out of the mountainside.

Rugged Ruckus
 
Rugged Ruckus is the ideal "treehouse without a tree". Instead of a tree, Barbara used tree parts: twig & log railings, a hand-crafted Twisted Log Climb, a Knotted Rope Climb wrapped securely around the knurly end of a 10' log cantilevered off the top of the Main Fort, and 5 Tree Stump Steps. Provide your own logs & twigs, or let us find them for extra charge. The large, lower-level Clubhouse provides great indoor space for kids to hang out in. The rest of the play structure is geared to be open with many challenging activities for both younger & older kids. The single color exterior palette lends to the tree fort ambiance and helps the structure blend seamlessly into its surroundings. A great "tree fort" when a tree is not available!
Oblique House
Oblique House:  Modern, colorful and playful. Barbara had lots of fun playing with angles on this project. Full of lots of ways up & down, with secret escapes and hidden ladders so kids can spend hours running round and round, obliquely of course!
Berkeley Double Slider

The Berkeley Double Slider has a Clubhouse on a Big Deck and 2 excellent slides down the hill - a tube slide through the berry patch and a straight slide beneath the pine trees.

Belle Bungalow

In this compact, custom design, Barbara carved out fantastic play space by nestling Belle Bungalow into the hillside, on top of the existing retaining wall.  The deck juts out just enough to provide space for monkey bars below, and access for a rock climbing wall and a rope net ladder.  The slide is the only part of the play structure that invades the lawn area.
