Man builds world’s tallest tree house because god told him to
(Daily Mail)–The world’s tallest treehouse, located in Crossville, Tennessee, makes the Swiss Family Robinsons look like a bunch of amateurs – but that might be because it was commissioned by God. The 1960 Disney film about a family shipwrecked on an island, features an impressive treehouse complete with its own water mill. But the Robinson’s home pales in significance next to this structure, which took builder Horace Burgess 11 years to build. Horace, who lives in the 10 story wooden house, said he begun the build in 1993 after he received a vision from God, who said he would never run out of materials if he built it. The enormous treehouse is a whopping 10,000 square feet but only cost Horace a reasonable $12,000 thanks to his thrifty use of recycled materials. Inside there are spiral staircases, a sanctuary, a choir loft, a basketball court, and countless rooms, walkways and balconies.
I don’t want to hate on this guy, but I am like 99.9% sure Horace from Tennessee is going to hell. When Jesus appears in a vision and asks you to build him a tree house, you better build him a god damn tree house. I mean this is a slap right to Jesus’s face. This isn’t a tree house…it’s a house with some trees in it…which you could really say about every house with wood in it. So nice try Horace, but you’re totally effed. If there is one thing Jesus knows about its carpentry. Not gonna slip this one by him.
PS: You’d have to pay me a winning mega millions ticket to get me to go up in that bell tower. Thing doesn’t look very structurally sound.
