In my dreams, I would build a similar addition onto the back of my house. It would create an outdoor room and I would make the upstairs the kid's lair. There would be stairs leading to the lair. In my dreams!
Wall Trellis Kit - Can be a DIY. Make a trellis of any shape and put it almost anywhere. Use the silicone glue to bond a number of the anchors to a wall or window.
