Somebody get this man his “World’s Greatest Grandpa” mug.
Terry Meredith of Uley, Gloucestershire, UK, has built an epic tree house hideaway for his family and friends — complete with a charcoal grill, seating for 10 and vast countryside views to rival a bird’s.
The cabin in the canopy was built more than 16 feet off the ground, atop a willow tree that Meredith had intended to partially cut down back in 2016 because it “had grown so big that it was blocking the sunset,” says the 65-year-old gramps to six grandkids. But when he climbed the tree and got an eyeful of lush pasture, he was taken aback.
“When I climbed up, my jaw dropped, I couldn’t believe the incredible view was just 50 meters away from my house,” Meredith tells Caters News. “I was wowed by the Welsh mountains, Cotswold escarpment and a stone age fortress Uley Berry.”
Meredith, a former electrician who says he’s “good at carpentry,” spent £8,000 (just over $10,000) on materials, such as arctic pine, oak and chestnut, to build the tree house, which is actually supported by four trees facing the Welsh Hills, the Cotswolds and the Malvern Hills.
“It took about eight months to build and I did most of it on my own with some help from friends here and there,” says Meredith, who now owns a luxury dog and cat boarding service called Hydegate Pet Resort.
