My friend Mendy is back with another “wonder” … a wonderfully crazy and sweet tree house in Crossville, Tennessee!

In 1993, Horace Burgess began constructing a 10-story tree house that is now nearly 100 ft high! Burgess claims that God came to him in a vision and inspired him to construct what he calls “God’s tree house” (See links at the end of the post for more details)

Burgess also created a rather large garden where he uses daffodils, irises, narcissus, gladiolas and wild daisies to spell out the letters J-E-S-U-S.

If you make the climb to the top … you get to ring the bells!

Leandra checks-out the graffiti added to the tree house over the years.

Two of my favorite peeps – Mendy & her husband “Smitty”. He’s like Thor … only cuddlier!

    Well, he’s certainly inspired. That’s pretty remarkable.
