Splinter Family Treehouse With Kitchen, Bath Faces Axe (Video)

A deluxe treehouse with a full kitchen, bathroom and all the plumbing featured on Animal's Plant "Treehouse Masters" faces the axe unless the owners get out their pruning shears.

The Associated Press reported Northern California authorities as telling Placer County couple Mike and Pat Splinter to trim back the 500-square-foot treehouse shown on the cable network while the Splinter family made hard candy for Christmas in the kitchen.



Placer County deputy planning director E.J. Ivaldi told the Sacramento Bee that the family already has a full guest cottage on their property. Because of that, authorities say the treehouse's full kitchen, and mattress, must go.

"They can use it for entertaining," Ivaldi said. "What the county approved was a residential accessory structure. For the purpose of them being able to do a TV show, they were allowed to build a kitchen with the understanding that the kitchen would come out."

A noted national treehouse designer, Pete Nelson, built the Placer County masterpiece for more than $60,000. The treehouse's owners have not yet commented on the county's order.
