Inventive Re-Use and the Tick Tock of Life’s Clock

The tick tock of life’s clock brings many changes. Children grow up and move out. Parents launch second careers. Children return to care for their elder parents.


In tandem with a big life change for one of our clients–the beginning of a new career—an old tree fort once used by the client’s now grown children is removed to make room for a new lane house. The old tree fort is loaded onto a flatbed and transported to a second Smallworks’ site.





Here on the second site, where a new Smallworks lane house was recently occupied by the second and third generation of this family, the “tree fort” finds new life as a play house  for the two young children right behind grandma’s house and only steps away from mom and dad.
