Minister Burgess was divinely inspired to begin building this structure and has opened it to the public.  Over ninety feet tall, 5 stories high, with 80 rooms and over 11,000 square feet, the home includes a bell tower and church.  Begun in 1993, it took Minister Burgess 14 years to complete the treehouse; he spent $12,000.  It is constructed around a white oak tree with a 12 foot base and uses 6 other oaks for support.
