Man From Crossville, TN Builds Worlds Tallest Treehouse

Post by Stovepipe on 2012-04-02, 1:18 pm

World's tallest treehouse leafs trees in the shade

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4233104/Worlds-tallest-treehouse-leafs-trees-in-the-shade.html


Devout builder Horace Burgess spent 11 years building the incredible structure after he said he got the nod from GOD to start work. It is an amazing 10 storeys tall - comprising 10,000 square feet of living space - and cost just £7,500 thanks to the liberal use of recycled materials. Inside, it resembles a castle with a spiral staircase, choir loft, balconies – and a BASKETBALL court.

Horace has said: "I was praying one day, and the Lord said, 'If you build me a treehouse, I'll see you never run out of material'.

"I built it for everybody. It's God's treehouse. He keeps watch over it."

Photographer Tom Whetton, 63, captured the 97ft high building in Crossville, Tennessee, US, in these stunning photographs.

He said: "The treehouse is incredibly impressive.

"You can't really appreciate the scale until you are standing next to it but it is absolutely huge.

"I was told that the whole thing is supported by just six trees and that Horace used 258,000 nails to put everything together.

"This house is every kids dream. Even I wanted to go inside and explore."

I want one. The pics are incredible.

"If you build it, they will come."

It looks awesome, but reminds me of a haunted house. Like spooks will jump out and grab you. lol.
