Instead Of Cutting Down Willow Tree, Grandpa Builds Epic House Invisible From Ground By Hand

Back in 2016, Terry Meredith decided he needed to do something about the giant willow tree growing in his backyard garden.

The tree had grown so big that it was blocking his view of the beautiful English sunset.

Terry originally planned on cutting down half of the tree. But as he climbed his way to the top of the big willow, he looked out to the horizon … and his jaw literally dropped.

He was stunned by the most incredible view of the vast mountains and old stone fortresses, just steps away from his own house.

Instead of removing the tree, the 65-year-old businessman (a skilled carpenter who once worked as an electrician) decided to build his own personal paradise.

Terry, 65, wanted nothing more than to share his amazing view with his loved ones, especially his six grandchildren.

After eight months of tireless work and nearly $10,000 for materials and supplies, Terry had completed his tree house using mostly his own two hands.

The tree house is situated 16 feet above the ground and is totally hidden from view from down below. It can seat up to 10 people and has two beds and a central barbecue.

It wasn’t long before total strangers came calling … and as you’re about to see, Terry was more than happy to accommodate them.
