Hi, welcome to my 9th MOC and my first contest entry. I decided to make a tree house because nobody else had done that in the tree contest. And, yes this is on an 8x8 base. Enjoy and please comment.

Judges Comment: A solid build. Accuracy: Although rather large and clunky, the tree just looks like the kind that would hold a treehouse. 19 points. Techniques: It looks very sturdy. Although the tree looks simple, I love the way the treehouse fits into it. 17 points. Originality/Creativity: Very original. I love the treehouse idea. In fact, the winner's MOC is based on your treehouse idea. 48 points. That's 84 points total. Very good, and as Dan said, thanks for your creativity.

Haha cool, i like this :) I've always wanted to build a real tree house, but i think i'll have to make do with joining you in building a Lego one. Good luck with the contest :)
Thanks DeTomaso, This started out as Calvin's (from Calvin and Hobbes)tree house but I found out that you can't use minifigures in your contest entry so I posted it Disfigured. Good luck also.
