church design

Minister Horace Burgess built a amazing church in the form of a huge tree house in Crossville, Tennesee. He begun the project around 1993 and finished in 2004. It is now known as the Minister’s Treehouse.

Eleven years of labor later, Horace had what he’d originally wanted: the largest tree house in the world. It spreads across not one, but seven big trees that grow through its floors and out of its windows. It soars 100 feet into the sky. Built without blueprints, its dimensions are a mystery even to Horace, who guesses that it covers around 10,000 square feet.
