What the heck is an inspector to do with this?
This structure had so many problems with it, that what do do with it was not very difficult. Just a matter of which version of taking it down is going to be more interesting. Wind, Water, Fire—-chainsaw?
While in its day, it was probably a hoot for all the kids in the neighborhood, today it might kill all the kids in the neigborhood.
Some of the basic concepts of the overall engineering are pretty good. However those concepts have been compromised by trees that were not consulted prior to installation and materials of questionable capabilities.
I can appreciate a good tree house–and built my fair share of them in my youth–but this one is questionable.
With this one I am left feeling sorry for the trees.
But I suspect they will exact their revenge in due time.
