Swiss Family Treehouse Sprouts


It's the early part of 1962 and six tons of steel are rapidly 
becoming the Family Robinson's island homestead.
Had construction stopped right here it still would have 
been a very impressive work of minimalist modern art.


By summer things are filling out fast.  
Wood planks across scaffolding provide access for the 
crew attaching branches and red vinyl leaves by hand.




Artful rock formations are sculpted of concrete over a steel 
frame for the jungle riverbed at the tree's base.






While way up high, a sloping roof is fashioned of fireproofed 
palm thatch for the "Crow's Nest", treetop quarters of the 
three Robinson boys, Fritz, Ernst, and Francis.  
(Notice the telephone in the foreground, for 
emergency calls back to civilization.)

Great stuff. One of my very earliest DL memories was seeing the Tree House under construction. I was seven!
