Biggest Tree House
The biggest tree house in the world is an amazing sight. It's
really hard to imagine a house that is constructed on a tree and
that too with the usage of ropes and wooden logs. Yes the biggest
tree house has about 10 stories and an area of about 10,000 square
It was Horace Burgess, the famous architect who designed this
tree house 16 years back. It is built on a single tree which is
about 80 feet high whereas the house is about 97 feet high. Seeing
its height it should not be called a house it should actually
be called as a tree mansion. Horace still has plans of adding
more stories to the house, but this could turn out to be a tough
Located in Crossville, Tennessee the house was made from recycled
wood, ropes and bolts. Because of usage of recycled wood the cost
of the house came down significantly to 12,000 dollars. Most of
this cost is due to the usage of 250,000 nails used in the construction
of the house.
Horace is not an unknown architect, he has build some of the
most attractive but different sorts of buildings and this is one
of them which is not seen anywhere else in the world. Horace said
that he had a dream of building such a house and on its completion
he was really overjoyed and said that it was a dream come true
Building a tree house is an art and requires lots of motivation
and innovation rather than money. The house has a spiral type
of staircase that moves around the tree to reach the top floor.
It's really difficult to have luxurious living conditions in this
type of house owing to its delicacy due to which items luxurious
items cannot be installed. The house has numerous rooms in it
and to go along with that it also has conference halls.
The tree house pictured is something
one might see in one's dream.
There are certain other things in the house that will definitely
draw your attention and these are the basketball court and a swing
which is tied from the top floor and runs till the ground floor.
You might be surprised on reading that an indoor basketball court
and that too on a tree house but it actually it's true. It should
be fun playing on such a basket ball court with a different kind
Due to its uniqueness the house has become a major tourist attraction
atleast in the Crossville region. This house is very famous amongst
the kids because such a type of tree house was used in the movie
Harry Potter and children get very much fascinated.
The house attracts over 5000 tourists in a single month and has
become an important tourist location. If you want to have such
a house you will need to build one by usage of a small amount
of money, some salvaged lumber and lots of motivation and inspiration.
