Kids Under Cover Cubby House Challenge 2013 Incolink Award - Most Innovative Cubby House
In 2012, we are lucky enough to be asked if we'd like to contribute a cubby house for auction in 2013's Melbourne Garden Show, the funds going to Kids Under Cover.
Chi and Jeremy's children were just the right age for tree houses at the time, and they contributed to the design. It's to be climbable, with space to camp out if required, lots of windows to look out to, and a crows' nest look out.
Our cubby - was sold at auction for over $9000! Thanks for the sponsors such as Livos, Bowens timbers and Ikea, and many thanks to the volunteers - Positive Footprints staff (Luke & Sarah), family and friends and Elizabeth Tran (consultant at ES consulting services)
Here's a video showing all the amazing cubbies that year...
And Here's some photos
