Dad Spends 8 Months Building Magical Indoor Treehouse For His Sons.

Jared Geddes’ sons know how lucky they are to have him as a father. There’s no question in their minds that he’s the best dad ever!

The father of four from Maple Valley, Washington, would do anything to make his boys happy. And he proved it a few years ago when he went above and beyond to give them the treehouse of their dreams — indoors!

Jared is a mechanical engineer for Boeing who fills his nights and weekends with woodworking projects. Back in 2017, he dedicated eight months to creating an epic basement playground his boys could play in for hours, rain or shine!

At that point, Jared had been discussing the idea of a treehouse with his sons for a year. So he kicked off the project with their vision in mind. Of course, he added his own touches, too! Trees removed from the lot next door were transformed into ladders…

…and formed the door to the boys’ very own hiding spot.

And, of course, no playground is complete without a bridge.

Jared even attached a bucket pulley so the kids could lower items and secret messages to one another!

What’s most impressive, though, is that Jared’s design was spontaneous for the most part!

“I did have an idea roughly what I wanted it to look like with an upper and lower level and two sections connected by a bridge, but other than that a lot of it was just ideas that happened as I started building,” he explained. “I also just tried to imagine what I would’ve wanted as a kid!”

Now, years later, these boys still can’t get enough of their treehouse adventures — and neither can their dad! We’re sure you can guess how they all kept busy during quarantine.

We only have one question: when can we visit? Sure, this treehouse was built for children, but we aren’t the only adults who’d love to move in!

Check out a time lapse of the entire build in the video below, and share this amazing project with other crafty parents!
