The World’s Largest Treehouse is in Crossville, TN, and Nashville Aerial was granted permission to show off this amazing structure built by a minister over an eleven year period.
In the early 1990s, Horace Burgess bought some wooded land in Crossville, Tennessee. He noticed one of the bigger trees on his newly acquired land and decided to build the world’s largest tree house in its branches.
But Horace was a busy man with a job and a family. After spending a couple of years on the project, he ran out of lumber and motivation.
“Then I turned my life over to God,” Horace recalled. “And the spirit of God said, ‘If you build Me a tree house, I’ll never let you run out of material.'”
God doesn’t make housing offers every day. Horace got himself ordained as a minister and went back to work. Horace says that God showed him what the tree house would look like (“It was like a vision”) but Horace says God didn’t tell him how big it would be. “If He had,” Horace said, “I would’ve tried to talk Him out of it.”
After eleven of working, Horace had what he’d originally wanted: the largest tree house in the world. It spreads across not just one, but seven big trees that grow through its floors and out of its windows. It soars 100 feet into the sky. Its dimensions are a mystery even to Horace, who guesses that it covers around 10,000 square feet. source
