A TreeHouse Grows on Governors Island (and a Picnic Party to Paint It!)

Not only is it ridiculously awesome that the TreeHouse  (yes, with a capital T and H) is open to everyone to play around, explore and basically frolic about in, Jones and his pals also built the thing from sustainable materials. They found scraps around the streets of Brooklyn and visited Build It Green!  (one of our favorite destinations for secondhand and reclaimed lumber, furniture and even paint) to get their supplies. Even though the TreeHouse was created for visitors of all ages, the beer bottle windchime – don’t worry, they’re empty – and the fun mirrored surfaces on the interior are especially enticing to the under 10 demographic.
If you want to get your TreeHouse on, we highly recommend that you visit on this upcoming Saturday, the 9th of July because that’s when Jones and pals will be throwing their TreeHouse PAZainting Picnic party . They’re inviting everyone to join them as they take paintbrushes to the TreeHouse and prettify it. Oh, and did we mention that they’re building a DJ booth right into the house? We’re hoping its right next to the sweet slide which, if we’re not mistaken, is made out of an industrial tube!
