This Guy Just Won All The Dad Awards With This Handmade Bedroom Treehouse

If you’re staring down a snowpocalypse-ordered weekend indoors — and you have 350 hours, $5,000, and a bunch of bags of cement lying around — you’re in luck: Here are step-by-step instructions for building your kid a Disney-inspired climbable tree house inside their bedroom.

For this new bullet on your DIY bucket list, you can thank Reddit user “radamshome,” a video game artist who just uploaded his entry in the Dad Of The Year awards to Imgur. It has a cozy reading nook, 12-volt lighting, a top sitting area, and enough room for him to cuddle up with his daughter for a bedtime story. If that makes you feel inadequate, wait until you look under the hood of this thing.

If you’re inspired to give it a go, there’s one more thing you’ll need: A-grade welding skills. The house is built atop a framework of steel rods rebar, and the instructions include images of radamshome that look like they were taken from an action montage that precedes the climax of a Fast And Furious movie.

All that said, if your kid has already looked over your shoulder and caught wind of this, you may have no choice but to dive in. Here are a few more pics to flesh the project out a bit, but now is probably a good time to call your buddy who’s actually good at this stuff. It would be a shame to burn your house down in the middle of a blizzard.
