It took 15 years for Horace Burgess, who claimed he was on a mission from God, to build this tremendous treehouse.

It's located in Crossville, Tennessee. It looks huge! But what Horace Burgess didn't assume is that his dedication had led him to set a world record by crafting the tallest treehouse in history with the height of 97 feet.

While was praying to God, Horace, the local Minister, got a vision from God to build a huge treehouse. The construction works had started in 1993 and it was 2012 when the house was finished.

In August 2012, the state closed the house to public access since the structure hadn't been following fire safety codes.

Tourists still visit to take pictures even though taking a tour isn't recommended because it's not secured from a fire.

Is actually a chapel, and everything else is built around it. The purpose of this room is for meditation and contemplation as the designer conceived.

It's unofficially the world's biggest treehouse, but it doesn't hold a Guinness Record because there's no official category for the biggest treehouse.

This place is just astonishing! Let's hope that they'll open it for the public again very soon.
