This awesome dad spent over $4250 and 350 hours turning his daughter’s bedroom into this magical treehouse. The project took 18 months and the end result is spectacular.

 

“My daughter wanted a fairy tree in her room that she could sit inside and read books”

“I was kind of un-prepared for the physical realities of this project….”

18 months and 350 hours were spent to complete the project

Radamshome, who is an artist in the video game industry, began with a concept drawing and a scale model

He took private welding courses to make the tree skeleton structurally sound

After over 100-120 hours, the skeleton was complete

It took another 50+ hours to apply the wire “skin” to the rebar

A special mixture of cement was used for the tree trunk, and papier-mâché for the branches. Total time so far: 225 hours

The dad used to paint miniatures as a teenager, so he used the same techniques to paint the tree

He wove Christmas lights, capable of being dimmed, into the branches to simulate stars

The fairy details and tree decorations were found at a Michael’s art supply store

One happy camper! The tree is actually strong enough to support three adults!
