My brother’s construction completed construction project


Seekingtruthnow: Twisted Oak Fort

My brother Dan has some really neat pictures of the tree fort that he has finished renovating for our much younger brothers (Ben & Dave who are both 6).

Dan’s project has really sparked my imagination for a project of my own. I’m thinking about building a small “cabin” for sorts, out at my grandparent’s old farm (near the old community of Pine Ridge, Oklahoma), either a stand-alone structure similiar to Dan’s tree fort (if I did this, it would be a small room built on telephone poles, that would be big enough for a cot and a table for short retreats) or possibly taking a section of one of my grandpa’s old barns and using it as the shell for a small cabin).

Of course the big limiting factors are money and time, but maybe if I start small I can have a small weekend retreat built by this fall.

  1. Thanks for the link this is very fun to see.

    Would you happen to have any photos of the very original fort that we played in as kids? I would love to see it again in all its glory. I wondered if your mom and dad had any you could scan and send me. Also I was curious if you could get any photos of that era that might spark some memories.

    I was recently going through the old boxes in my mom’s house and have found lots of information on the country of Younglind and it got me thinking about trying to chronicle this very important era of our lives. Seems like it would be a fun project.
