$3200 Homeowners’ Policy Forces Washington Treehouse Down

A Wenatchee, Wash., man who built a children’s treehouse overhanging a sidewalk has agreed to take it down to settle a dispute with the city.

The city had told Zeb Postelwait he could keep the treehouse if he took out a $1 million insurance policy.

Postelwait told The Wenatchee World he decided to remove the structure after he found out his homeowners insurance bill would have climbed to $3,200 a year.
