Interior designer Lynn Knowlton always wanted a tree fort. So she built a little dream of one in a grove of trees on her property, two and a half hours northwest of Toronto. Every bit of it is recycled; the basic building is made from the wood from a barn.

Truth be told, it is created from something that otherwise would have been torn down and burned. My friend , who we bought the barn from, wanted to see a reclaimed use for her barn. It was blown over by a tornado. It would have been a crime to burn the remnants of that barn.

Besides being a designer, Lynne is a very funny writer with a blog worth following, so I will be quoting her a lot.
