Yes, an 11 Year Old DESIGNED and BUILT this EPIC TREE HOUSE

     Meet Grant Becker- a go-getter in every sense of the term.

     We're all apparently slackers by comparison too, as Grant took on the colossal project of building and designing his tree house at the mere age of eleven! Completed when he was thirteen, this tree house is quite an impressive feat, regardless of his age. And yeah sure, I'm betting he had help, but almost EVERYONE goes that same path, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, especially in cases where certain tasks require extra hands for the sake of safety. I see too many people who are steadfastly and stubbornly "solo DIY" when it comes to projects- they want the bragging rights to say that they "went it alone". Don't be that person- there is nothing wrong with seeking help.

But back on track....

"The lights here, I made those at glass-blowing camp", says Grant in the video. Enough said. Thats proof enough that at least a decent majority of the work and design WAS done by this young man.

I mean what kid is even interested in "glass blowing camp" at that age?

Keep tabs on this kid- he'll be going places.

Congrats Grant and stay the course. I hope to visit your tree house one day!
