Photos show “incredible” pallet treehouse created by dad for just £10

AMAZING pictures show how a dad created a spectacular “treehouse” for his daughter for just £10.

Tom Cole from Abergavenny, Monmouthshire used old pallets to build the impressive structure for 3-year-old daughter Mila.

Images show the finished two storey playhouse sat in Tom’s back garden following weeks of hard work.

The 31-year-old’s only spend was £10 towards the pallets, which he obtained from a neighbour.

Another image shows “little helper” Mila perched on the treehouse mid way through construction.

Tom says he had only planned on making a “basic” structure, but the end result was the “awesome” treehouse pictured.

A delighted Tom took to a DIY Facebook group yesterday to share the finished product.

He posted a photo of Mila atop her castle, captioned: “Grand total of £10 spent on it.

“Stripped down a load of pallets which is the biggest pain in the a***! One happy girl.”

Tom’s post, which has racked up more than 4,000 likes has blown away social media users.
One group member wrote: “Looks fantastic, well done.”

Another added: “That’s awesome, lucky lady.”

And one man said: “Mate, that is class.”

Speaking today, Tom said: “The only £10 I spent to be totally honest was the pallets.

“I know they can be sourced free and the guy I get them from is happy enough to give them to me, but I wanted to give him a little something as thanks.

“I did it slowly over the course of a few weeks. There is only so much pallet stripping one can take at a time to be fair.

“I have found it difficult to keep Mila entertained with my other half having to be in work, but this project really did help us pass the time together, she’s a good helper.

“I’m proud of her, that’s for sure. People say I should be proud of building it. All I aim to do is make her happy which I guess I have done.”
