Grandpa Spent 2 Years Working In This Old Corn Silo. When He Calls His Family Inside…


For any grandparent, entertaining grandchildren can be a tall order, but this Kentucky grandpa came up with an idea that seems out of child’s dream: a treehouse 50 feet off the ground!

According to the Daily Mail, Rusty Combs first came up with the idea for building a clubhouse on top of a silo when his two sons were youngsters, but it wasn’t until granddaughter Kiley was born that he decided to make the dream a reality.

The proud grandfather built the log cabin in his garage. “It started out about two years ago as a two-month project,” Mr. Combs told NBC.

Two years after Combs began his project, Kiley’s Clubhouse was finally complete.

To ensure the safety for his granddaughter, Rusty got the approval of a structural architect, along with a building permit. He then hired a crane to lift it into place on the silo.

‘All my immediate neighbors have been fantastic. I think every single one of them has come and helped me on it from time to time,’ he said.

To reach the playhouse, you must climb up four 8-foot ladders. The interior features lighting, running water, and air conditioning.

But perhaps the most amazing feature in this playhouse is its magnificent view of the green land and tall water towers.
