Man Spent 15 Years Building The World’s Largest Treehouse, And It’s A Dream Come True! [Video]

 

If you add all the floors together, the “living space” sums up to more than 3000 square meters.

“This has to be the most epic treehouse I have ever seen,” says the Seeker Stories narrator in the video below. “Four stories high, surreal architecture and an amazing tree swing. There’s even a tree growing out of the third floor and what looks like a penthouse suite on top.”

Geographer and photographer Chuck Sutherland says it’s, “arguably the world’s largest treehouse.” The 97-foot-tall structure is located in Crossville, Tennessee, and it’s supported by six different trees.

It was built by a minister Horace Burgess.

The structure contains 80 rooms and even has a basketball hoop, church and bell tower. Construction lasted 14 years with the minister spending $12,000 to build it. It’s become quite a legend in recent years. People flocked from all over to tour the building, but it was closed by a fire marshall in 2012 for violating fire codes. Still, there’s a petition circulating to have it reopened.
