Felicity said it better than I could: “We’re going to have the best playhouse in the whole world… even in Chinese!”
Alan is building the kids a pirate ship playhouse. A pretty massive, awesome pirate ship playhouse. He used plans here as his basis, although he has modified them somewhat. Our version is longer to allow for the addition of a second mast so the kids can climb the rigging between them.
Construction began early in January, when the ground was still frozen.
