DICKSON, Oklahoma -- A man's home is his castle, even if it's an eighty-foot high treehouse. For the last few years Linnie Woods has been building the treehouse for his grandchildren on his property in Carter County.
Using scraps from construction sites, Woods has spiraled the house around an oak tree. He said he's driven one million nails into the structure, which he said has withstood 80 miles per hour winds.
The treehouse even has electric lighting.
"An engineer told me it is structurally sound, even if it don't look like," Woods laughed.
Woods said it's the largest treehouse in the state, and maybe the world. Besides being a playhouse for children, over the years Woods' creation has become a tourist attraction.
"There's been, well, people from New York, California, Florida, Alaska have all seen this treehouse. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and people just keep bringing 'em out here," Woods said.
