The towering structure in Crossville, Tennessee, is often referred to as the unofficial largest treehouse in the world. While Guinness World Records officials can't confirm it as an official record, there's no disputing the house's grandeur.
Known as The Minister's Treehouse, Burgess explains the inspiration behind his nearly 10,000-square-foot-structure. "I built it for everybody. It's God's treehouse. He keeps watch over it," Burgess told USA Today in a 2007 interview. "I was praying one day, and the Lord said, 'If you build me a treehouse, I'll see you never run out of material.'"
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky

This treehouse and it's designer have been featured a couple of times on the local pbs tv channel. It is open to the public for visiting and also staying the night in.

I would love to live in a tree house, but something a little smaller. I don't need 10,000 square feet!

Good thing this guy didn't try to build that in the wrong part of the country. Something that delightfully haphazard couldn't possibly be up to code.
