This sounds pretty cool:
Standing 50 feet tall, the tree house features five stories, a cargo net, two slides (one water, one dry), about a dozen entrances and exits, and it’s all built from discarded jungle gyms, satellite dishes, tons of wood and miles of heavy-duty rope. At the bottom, the water slide pours into a makeshift pool….
“The Installation,” as it’s called, was put together by residents of the NOLA Art House, a 19th-century mansion that’s been converted into an artist commune where everyone from painters to writers to graffiti artists and DJs live, play and ply their trades. While all of the 14 or so residents have contributed in one way or another to the tree house, it was the brainchild of Scott Pterodactyl, a sinewy young hipster who squats rather than sits and regularly climbs the outside of the tree house instead of taking the quicker (and safer) route through the inside. He began work on the tree house in July 2009.
