Sittin' in a Tree 

Harold and Juliet Moran live in a two-story house on a compact, 50-by-100-foot lot in Burlington's Old North End. But with a little craftiness and creativity, they've turned their small yard into an adventure land.

The crown jewel of their outdoor space is an eye-catching elevated play structure that has provided their boys, Jake and Owen, with hours of open-ended, open-air play. Harold, a handyman and property manager, built it himself four years ago, after researching treehouse design at the library.

"I think it's a doable project for pretty much anyone," he says.
