Twenty-Ton Texas Treehouse is the first episode of Treehouse Masters.

Plot Synopsis[]

In search of more living space for their growing, multi-generational family, a Texas couple asks Pete to create a ranch-style treehouse in the hackberry trees on their sprawling property outside of Waco. Pete rises to the challenge and delivers one of the biggest treehouses he’s ever built – a 75,000-pound house adorned with a traditional Texas exterior and a contemporary and luxurious interior complete with a full bathroom, a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and a flat-screen television, where the entire family can gather together.

The Plan[]

This Texas-sized ranch-house treehouse is going to be the biggest one I've ever built. 750 square feet. For access, we're gonna build a staircase to lead to this massive wrap around deck. And lots of windows, perfect for those Texas sunsets. Inside, we'll pour natural light into the Great Room, that's big enough for the whole family to gather. One of my biggest challenges will be running enough electricity to power that big-screen TV. While the inside will be all wired up, outside will be down-home country, covered with traditional Texan board-and-batten siding. I can just see the whole family up there, barbecuing away. Yee-haw!
