Tom spent just £10 towards the pallets, which be bought from a neighbour.

Tom revealed that he had only planned to make a ‘basic’ structure, but the end result was the ‘awesome’ treehouse pictured.

A delighted Tom took to a DIY Facebook group yesterday to share the finished product.

He posted a photo of Mila enjoying her castle, captioned: ‘Grand total of £10 spent on it.

‘Stripped down a load of pallets which is the biggest pain in the a***! One happy girl.’

Tom’s post, which has racked up more than 4,000 likes has blown away social media users.

One group member wrote: ‘Looks fantastic, well done.’

Another said: ‘That’s awesome, lucky lady’, and a third added: ‘Mate, that is class.’

Speaking today, Tom said: ‘The only £10 I spent to be totally honest was the pallets.

Tom who has struggled to keep Mila entertained during lockdown, said the project helped to pass the time. Pictured: Mila in the finished playhouse 

‘I know they can be sourced free and the guy I get them from is happy enough to give them to me, but I wanted to give him a little something as thanks.

‘I did it slowly over the course of a few weeks. There is only so much pallet stripping one can take at a time to be fair.

‘I have found it difficult to keep Mila entertained with my other half having to be in work, but this project really did help us pass the time together, she’s a good helper.

‘I’m proud of her, that’s for sure. People say I should be proud of building it. All I aim to do is make her happy which I guess I have done.’

Tom revealed he’s proud of Mila and his aim with building the structure was to make her happy. Pictured: The finished structure
