Lately, I’ve noticed a group of squirrels frequenting my backyard. It’s hard to tell exactly how many there are, as they come and go at different times, but I estimate there are at least six of them based on the markings on their fur. I enjoy leaving food out for them occasionally, not too often to make them dependent, but enough to keep them coming back to my yard. It’s a delight to listen to their rustling and scraping on my deck at night and catch glimpses of them scurrying around and having fun from my window.
I’ve been thinking about building a treehouse for these squirrels and have decided to visit the best hardware store Cheltenham has tomorrow morning to gather the necessary supplies. I’ll need wood, nails, hot glue, and paint, as well as tools like a saw, a large ruler, and a screwdriver. I’m hoping that the store I plan to visit also has timber supplies. Cheltenham stores can sometimes be unpredictable in terms of stock availability.
I’ve been doing some research on how to build a treehouse, and as a beginner with no prior experience in construction, it seems like a relatively straightforward project. It’s just a matter of putting the parts together with nails after cutting the wood to the right size. I might even consider tinting the wood for added aesthetic appeal. I envision the treehouse as a place where the squirrels can climb up to reach the food I leave out for them, as well as a shelter from the wind and rain. I’m excited about the possibility of creating a safe and fun space for them to enjoy.
I’m looking forward to my trip to the hardware store in Cheltenham tomorrow and seeing what supplies they have in stock. With the right materials and tools, I’m confident that I can successfully build a treehouse for these adorable backyard visitors. Once I’ve done that, I wonder what other animals will come to play in my backyard and whether I can adopt any of them as pets.
