Sarah Davis … Lexington, Fayette County

Sarah writes : “This is in my magnolia tree that all my grandchildren and children love climb. Three years ago my twin grandsons Garrett and Moss Davis, then 9 decided they needed tree fort . This was all their idea. They drew what they wanted, and added an addition the following year. The treehouse was built by Neil Watt, who takes care of the Davis’ yard. It is 7 feet high, and the enclosed deck, made from scrap lumber, is 8 by 4 feet wide; it is accessed by a rope. Davis’ grandchildren have been pirates, hunters on a safari, and soldiers in the treehouse. There is a old cowbell taped to the tree to ring for food or more to drink. A pair of binoculars is also available. Sarah notes that the neat thing about the treehouse is that most people don’t even know it is there, as you cannot see it from the street. The children have been known to stay up in the treehouse for 2 to 3 hours!.
The treehouse has even been decorated for the 4th of July … It is fun for Davis to watch their imaginations at work. It was actually their idea to build this as well as design it…. and all the grandchildren have loved to climb that tree, which reminds Grandma Sarah of Scout in “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
