This is the story of a four-storey house which has been standing on an 80-year old mango tree for 20 years.

KP Singh, an engineer who cares about the environment and understands that trees are valuable built the four-storey house in an 80-year-old mango tree in the year 2000 without harming the tree.

The house situated in Udaipur has been designed according to the branches of the tree. Some branches of a tree are used as a sofa and some as a TV stand.

Despite being built on a tree, the house has all the basics such as kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, dining hall and even a library.

Pradeep’s first plan was to buy land and lay the foundation of his house. But after learning about the history of the land, the whole plan was changed.

Kul Pradeep Singh said that people living here used to plant fruit trees and earn their living by selling fruits, but as the area of ​​the city spread, deforestation began. About four thousand trees were cut in the area. Kul Pradeep did not want the years old mango tree to be cut down because of his house. That’s why he asked to build a house on the tree itself.

The house begins from 9 feet above the ground and has remote-controlled stairs.

Cement was not used anywhere in the construction of this house, the entire structure of the house was built from steel. The walls and floors of the house were made from cellulose sheets and fibers.

The first floor of the home consists of a kitchen, bathroom, and dining hall and the library is made on the second floor.

This treehouse also has all the necessary facilities like lights, fans, and a fridge.

The treehouse has an entry in the Limca Book of Records.  The treehouse is also a local tourist attraction for those who come to visit Udaipur and want to learn the importance of nature and architecture engineering.
