Teagan gets her dream treehouse!!!

Treehouse Nation’s secret treehouse is revealed and Teagan gets her wish granted! Amazingly, we were able to keep the treehouse build a secret, thanks to the help of Teagan’s parents, until Make-A-Wish surprised Teagan with a video reveal during their big event  in Sacramento.  We were then able to watch as she arrived at the house to see it in person for the first time. What an amazing moment that was! We had 5 straight days available to complete the treehouse before the Make-A-Wish reveal.  Our project coordinator, Tricia, from MAW was fantastic! A huge thank you to John, Crystal, Eric, Jonny, Doug, Tim, Kevin, Danny, and Misha for making it happen! We couldn’t have built this great treehouse without the generous contributions from Berco Redwood and the folks at Under the Arbor. Congratulations Teagan!!!
