Treehouse of the Day: An Ode to Swiss Family Robinson

Many of us here in the PNW are familiar with 'Treehouse Masters,' the Animal Planet show where Fall City's Pete Nelson and crew travel across the country to build incredible treehouses for a lucky few.

With the show's next season just underway and the local connection - we thought we'd take a look at all the treehouses they built in 2016. We'll do one 'Treehouse of the Day' a day until we run out!

Today's treehouse was built in Berrien, Michigan - and was a husband's surprise anniversary gift to his wife, who loves Swiss Family Robinson. While their treehouse draws inspiration from the story, it's much more advanced that it's castaway motivation.
