Seven years ago, Horace Burgess prayed and received divine inspiration. God said unto him "If you build me a treehouse, I'll see you never run out of material." And so Horace built, and built, and built:
The treehouse has 10 floors, averaging nine to 11 feet in height by Burgess's reckoning. He has never measured its size but estimates it to be about 8,000 to 10,000 square feet. He did count the nails that he has hammered into the wood — 258,000, give or take a few hundred. And he guesses he has sunk about $12,000 into the project.
