Treehouse dreams trashed over boring safety concerns5/31/2012
You can always count on the government to ruin everybody's fun. The Army Corps of Engineers is set to march on in and demolish a treehouse on the banks of the Kootenai River at Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Owner Tremain Albright is reportedly pretty upset about the news, not only because he spent $14,000 converting the romantic structure into a guest house, but because he was understandably quite fond of it to begin with. Though he's been fighting for a while to preserve the house, the problem is the tree in which it's constructed is set into the river's levy, which apparently makes it unsafe. Albright's tree is just one of several destined for the chop.
