Transforming Daughter’s Bedroom Into Fairytale Treehouse, This Dad Spends 18 Months!

Share

Radamshome is an “artist in the video game industry,” and his biggest fear after building this incredible structure is “when she’s 13 and wants it removed from her room.” What do you think, Pandas? Should we call it a day, and declare an early victor for the 2016 father-of-the-year award?

Every girl wants a fairy tree in her bedroom, so 2016 super-dad candidate and Reddit user radamshome decided to oblige. He spent 350 hours over 18 months to build this magical 4,250 USD project. The concrete and rebar tree is so strong, that it can support up to three adults.
