Unreal 10 Story Treehouse!

It took this guy 11 years to build this 10 story, 10,000 square foot treehouse.

If you haven't seen this you will want to!

So what happens when the trees that support it die?

How can you call that a tree house. It's more like a mansion. Besides its touching the ground. Lol

When it's rustic......it's rustic

IMHO that's not a tree house.

It's not completely supported by the tree(s) but I'm willing to stretch enough to call it a tree house, since parts of it obviously are. I wish they would have shown a lot more pictures. They talk about "countless rooms" but then really only show a couple of views of what seems to be the same church room.

I looked it over and the concept is neet, but you can keep it.
Architecturally speaking, if it's not structurally supported by the trees, it doesn't qualify as a tree house.
So it's not one.
