Tallest Treehouse in the World Erected in Tennessee


The designer of this incredible construction is Horace Burgess, a landscape architect. The whole structure is made from reclaimed wood, as well as a number of other recycled materials. The Minister's Treehouse graciously rests on a white oak tree that is 80-feet high.

The 10-story building has been named the tallest tree house in the world and is located in Crossville, Tennessee. It covers a total area of 8000 to 10,000 sq ft. The treehouse is made using donated wood or wood that has been salvaged from garages and other storages.

It cost the designer $12,000 to construct the treehouse. Most of the money Mr. Burgess spent on 258,000 nails. Inside the building one can find a spiral staircase, a sanctuary, a choir loft, a basketball court and several rooms and balconies. In addition, the designer decided to build a belfry tower, which Mr. Burgess dubbed the "only penthouse in Cumberland County."
