Uh, oh, Placer County treehouse kitchen must go | The Sacramento Bee: In November, acclaimed treehouse builder Pete Nelson constructed a 500-square-foot treehouse featuring a full-working kitchen, bath and loft for the Splinter family of Granite Bay on his television program “Treehouse Masters,” which airs on the Animal Planet cable channel. The episode – complete with the affable Nelson making candy with the Splinter family – aired in December.
Now the county says that because the Splinters already have a guest home on their property, they’ll have to remove the kitchen appliances and loft mattress from the treehouse before the county can sign off on the construction.
This isn't your garden variety HOA dustup over a treehouse. This one's so elaborate county building enforcement sees it as an illegal addition.
