The word “treehouse” will probably bring back fond childhood memories for many of us. As a kid, the idea of a house floating above the ground is an endless source of wonders – and for some people that feeling of wonder never truly goes away. As is the case with Horace Burgess, a pastor from Tennessee who has taken his childhood fantasies to the next level by building, what is now considered to be, the world’s largest treehouse.
The structure is now 97 foot high and has visitors in awe… and the country angry. You see, Horace never got the official permits for his unusual structure and it’s not up to code. It is also a fire hazard (Wait, Wood? Noooo…). So, unfortunately, it’s not clear how long the treehouse will be around, but enjoy the view for now and be sure to check out the guided tour in the video below. Maybe it brings back memories of your youth, or perhaps even a desire for a new tree house in your future?
