Dad Spends 18 Months Transforming Daughter’s Bedroom Into Fairytale Treehouse

Posted on Lifestyle 39

Every girl wants a fairy tree in her bedroom, so 2016 super-dad candidate and Reddit user radamshome decided to oblige. He spent 350 hours over 18 months to build this magical 4,250 USD project. The concrete and rebar tree is so strong, that it can support up to three adults.

Radamshome is an “artist in the video game industry,” and his biggest fear after building this incredible structure is “when she’s 13 and wants it removed from her room.” What do you think, Pandas? Should we call it a day, and declare an early victor for the 2016 father-of-the-year award?

He took private welding courses to make the tree skeleton structurally sound

After over 100-120 hours, the skeleton was complete

It took another 50+ hours to apply the wire “skin” to the rebar

A special mixture of cement was used for the tree trunk, and papier-mâché for the branches. Total time so far: 225 hours

The dad used to paint miniatures as a teenager, so he used the same techniques to paint the tree

He wove Christmas lights, capable of being dimmed, into the branches to simulate stars

The fairy details and tree decorations were found at a Michael’s art supply store

One happy camper! The tree is actually strong enough to support three adults!
