The World’s Largest Treehouse: A Mansion In A Tree

Treehouse In Crossville Tennessee

I love treehouses. It’s one of those things I always wanted when I was a little girl but never got, that and an Easy Bake Oven. The thing that is strange to me about this treehouse is that I always thought the world’s largest treehouse would probably be in some exotic jungle, like the kind you only read about in National Geographic. It turns out; it’s just a state away in Crossville, Tennessee. Several hundred people drive to see this treehouse each year, and it’s kind of neat to think I could check it out in person after just a few hours in the car.

My favorite treehouse, which I wrote about a while back, is this sexy seductive world up in the trees that doesn’t really exist because it was just part of an elaborate photo shoot. This treehouse below; however, is real. I can assure you of that. This particular treehouse will soon be featured in the Guinness World Record book, and it turns out there this is quite a story behind it. This monstrosity-in-a-tree is 97 feet in the air. It has 10 floors and over 80 rooms. Horace Burgess, a minister, has been working on building this treehouse for over 14 years. He uses scrap wood that people give him from garages, storage sheds and barns. He says that God has never let him run out of material.

There are literally dozens of stairways, porches, nooks, crannies and little secret passageways in this huge treehouse. On the very top is a 5,700-pound chime tower complete with bells made from oxygen acetylene bottles. You may be wondering what kind of tree could hold this house. An 80-foot tall oak tree with six other smaller close by trees are somehow able to support this tree mansion. I bet I could live in a room in the corner of that house and nobody would notice me. I wanna play in there!
