A local family appears on Animal Planet’s hit show Treehouse Masters

Barneveld — It’s not your average treehouse, and it was never something the Duesler family imagined would be in their backyard.

"This was designed and engineered to be built on seven trees,” said Brad Duesler.

His family is the latest featured on Animal Planet’s hit show, Treehouse Masters. A series that follows a world-renowned treehouse builder as he travels across the country building the ultimate treehouses.

"It ended up being an anniversary gift from our kids, for our 35th wedding anniversary,” said Duesler.

It was Brad's daughter who signed them up to be on the show.

"She watched five minutes of the episode, and then she went into our office, and came out about an hour later, and she said she just applied online to get a treehouse built on our property,” said Duesler. "I didn't think anything would come of it."

But something did, and months later his property turned into a construction site and a small movie studio.

"Lots of people, camera equipment and audio equipment, pretty impressive,” said Duesler.

It took two weeks to build this two-story, 13ft high art studio sitting on a collection of oak trees.

A peaceful get away, literally. Tucked away from everything else.

The full episode is set to air Friday the 25th on Animal Planet.
