Of course Mike is my seven year old son and he is a bit on the precocious side. He could read and write by the time that he was five years old and they talked about him skipping the first grade after his teachers realized that he knew much of what they were going to teach him. He has decided that he wants his own playhouse, he even came up with a budget and designed it on my tablet. It is not a very difficult design. It is just the standard thing with shutters and a dutch door. Of course it has a loft in the back. He obviously thought it out quite well. In essence this is a big toy box with a bunk bed on top of it. His design does not make perfect sense, but of course he knew that I could manage to make it work. It was something I had to rationalize, but I got approval on my design.
I put it all in the Computer Aided Design software at work and when I got done I think I had a couple of clients. Of course we have computer aided wood working machines at the shop, the sort of thing that would allow me to do really fancy work if I wanted to. The boss started looking over my shoulder and asked me for a copy of the files. Of course he is a big time genius at this sort of thing and he was not going to settle for what was in my budget. By the end of the day I was off of the stuff I was supposed to do and the two of us were running parts for the play house that he had designed for his grandkids. It was total overkill and he was over the moon when we finished.
