This has to be every children’s dream; a gigantic tree house. The self-taught carpenter and landscape architect Horace Burgess built this great tree house in Crossville TN after God told him to do so, as he claims himself. He started building in 1993 and hasn’t finished yet. It consists
of 10 floors and weighs 5700 pounds.
Each floor is about 11 feet high and measures between 8,000 to 10,000 square feet, and it’s 97 feet tall. 400 to 500 people visit this tree house every week, and you can find people from each state that comes to see this madness. Of course this great house will enter soon into Guinness book of records, Burgess will just have to have the right measures first.
As for now he is still adding new pieces to the house that are recycled lumber from garages, storage sheds and barns. What to do than to wish him good luck with this awesome project. Some other great tree houses are these ones in Costa Rica where people actually live in their own little world.
