There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams—not through her own fault, but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion. It had gone beyond her, beyond everything. He had thrown himself into it with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way. No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.
The World’s Largest Tree House
Located in Crossville, Tennessee, Horrace Burgess built the world’s largest tree house using only recycled lumber, donated or salvaged from demolition sites. He says that since so much of the material used to build the house was given to him, the whole project has only cost him around $12 thousand—most of which was spent on nails. The structure, which climbs 100 feet into the air, is mainly supported by a single large tree which makes up it’s foundation—though a spiral staircase allows access inside from the ground level. At ten stories tall, with roughly 10,000 square feet, the tree house may be more aptly called a ‘tree mansion’, but according Horrace, it’s a work in progress.
