For one reason and another Gabriel and Maria were trying out 'one room living'. It was more Tokyo than Hoxton, which may be OK for some people, but Gabriel needed some privacy. He was at that stage in life when you need to be able to disappear and just be on your own. He was going to be 6 next we built him an indoor treehouse. It is supported by some shelves for Maria's books (she's a teacher) and an access ladder. Gabriel has a bed upstairs and some personal storage. The front facade is a panel of linked "Norway" louvres, so he can either be a butterfly or a hermit depending on his mood. Out of ten, how happy was he?
