Every girl wants a fairy tree in her bedroom, so 2016 super-dad candidate and Reddit user radamshome decided to oblige. A video games developer in Washington State may be one of America’s greatest dads after he spent a year and a half building his daughter a fantasy bedroom fit for a Disney princess.
Rob Adams’ daughter Lia, 6, told her dad she wanted a tree house inside her Bellevue home which she could sit in and climb and read books inside.

Radamshome, who is an artist in the video game industry, began with a thought drawing and a scale model
He attended private welding courses to do the tree skeleton structurally sound
It took another 50+ hours to apply the wire “skin” to the rebar
A special mixture of cement was used for the tree trunk, and papier-mâché for the branches. Total time so far: 225 hours
The dad used to paint miniatures as a teenager, so he used the same techniques to paint the tree
The tree is actually strong enough to support three adults!
He wove Christmas lights, capable of being dimmed, into the branches to simulate stars
