  • That's a treehouse? More like a real house built over a tree.
  • Name your children after soap opera characters, local building inspectors will make their entitled little lives miserable whenever possible.
  • The treehouse looks nicer than their trailer. Probably doubled the property values.
  • "The boys and their mother have also used it for occasional sleepouts"

    Billy, this is very important.

    Has mommy taken anyone into the treehouse with her while daddy is at work?

    Maybe the mailman, or somebody she has you call 'uncle'?
  • Why would the kids want to get off their own lawn? THAT'S stupid.
  • Yeah, that's not a treehouse. That's an elevated structure that happens to have been built around part of a tree.
  • And the tree house looks better than the house. But I understand how that violates zoning codes. Meh: one way or the other...
  • Yeah, That's no Treehouse.

    I built myself a tree house as a kid. 2x4 supports running between 3 trees, a bunch of scrap wood for a floor and ladder. Just enough space for 2 or 3 kids to sit on. Being that I built it myself, and it being in a tree, the floor wasn't exactly level. I even got myself a zip line that I made. My parents insisted I used climbing rope at first, until they saw me use it and fall halfway to the ground before it finished stretching and i began moving forwards on the line. Then I was able to get my proper metal cable.

    /yes it was farking awesome
    //It fell down last year. The wood rotted out and the movement of the trees pulled it apart.
  • Not a treehouse.
    And it's in the front yard. If I was one of the neighbors, I'd be pissed.

    Sorry boys, build it yourself. It'll mean more that way.
  • 4 essential things make a treehouse real...one - the kid who uses it builds it with his friends or siblings. No adults. Two - scrap materials are used for as much of it as possible. Three - it's IN a damn tree (not built with 4x4 perfectly plumbed posts sunken into concrete lined holes to hold the deck level). Four - it looks like it's made by a kid with scrap wood, not by an adult with too much time on his hands.
  • screw tree houses
    when I was a kid I wanted a tree pirate ship!
  • If your structure violates building code and one property tax paying resident doesn't like it it should come down no matter how many signatures they get.

  • BlameBush: No adults


    Adults can supervise and make sure the thing won't fall down, but that's about it.
  • It doesn't show from the pic, but that looks like you could sit in it and look directly into other houses. I'm not sure I'd be happy with that. Also, that's not a tree house. It looks more like a prefab garage. If they went to the trouble of getting a professionally made structure they should've spent 5 minutes checking local codes instead of spending days after the event pestering neighbours into signing their petition because they're too embarrassed to say no face to face.
  • That's not a tree house so quit crying. With that in the front yard I would be a mad neighbor as well.

    Not sure why I had to enable a half dozen scripts just to see a picture, but I figure I'd save some of you the trouble.


    That's not a treehouse. It doesn't count if it's not actually supported by the tree.

    I only needed to whitelist 2. Town news and hellenair.
  • That is not a tree house.

    Remove the petition from the sign and then complain about the sign violating the zoning laws.

    /off my lawn

    We used pallets a lot.

    Also, it's better to have it in a tree out on the edge of the neighborhood or down by the creek , rather than in the yard.

    Give'er a toss?

    I have a creek at the edge of my property in the woods. I try to set up a nice little campsite for my family and it gets violated by local kids. I couldn't even imagine what would happen down there if I provided them a treehouse to break into.

    You're much more awesome now than you were earlier today.
