A friend forwarded this article to me and said she has a bunch of leftover wood from a project at her house, so we are going to make this room in our backyard this summer. I have two girls who love to hear stories and love to star gaze, so I look forward to working on this.

Stay tuned and we will blog about our project and post construction photos. I will be sure to see if this is something worth taking to your backyard.

If anyone has built something like this, please let us know and we'd love to receive any pointers, comments or advice.
