You Won’t Believe This Epic Tree House One Man Built For His Grandkids

Ariana lives in NYC but grew up in FL. She loves comedy, strong coffee, and impromptu performances by the mariachi bands on the subway.

The relationship you have with your grandparents is truly special, and it’s one like no other. Mine always tried to make our time together just a little extra fun and silly — like how my grandma always made the tastiest French toast while my grandpa tried to teach me the Foxtrot in their kitchen.

Cool grandparents are everywhere, and if you’re lucky enough to have some, they’re a huge blessing — like these six grandparents taking an absolutely hysterical wedding photo.

But a grandparent that’s silly and creative? Well, it doesn’t get any better than that! That’s why, when I saw the gift one grandpa from Massachusetts gave to his grandkids, I couldn’t believe my eyes!

The present? A three-story, 40-foot tree house built from scratch by grandpa (and contractor) Jay Hewitt.

This “playroom” is literally the size of an actual house! I adore strange and funky homes, and this tree house is right up my alley.

Grandfather Jay Hewitt has just completed an incredible tree house for his grandchildren — the scale and luxury of which is completely mind-blowing! With three levels and gorgeous decks, there's room for the entire family!

Before his 5-year-old grandson and 4-year-old granddaughter were born, Jay declared, “I want to build a tree house. You’ve never seen a tree house like the one I’m gonna build for them.”

Complete with climbing ropes, slides, and stairs that look straight out of a fairy-tale, this play space could entertain for weeks.

This grandpa shares the view from above. A perfect spot to play "make believe," have a tea party, or just sit on the deck and daydream.

He included some amazing details, like these netted chairs and the preservation of the tree inside the actual house. With beautiful windows that provide a ton of natural light, it's an amazingly airy and calming space.
