Redditor radamshome put himself firmly in the running for the Greatest Dad Ever award after he built his daughter a tree for her bedroom. Yes, a tree: one she could sit inside to read as well as climb onto.

"My daughter wanted a fairy tree in her room that she could sit inside and read books, climb the branches, and also have a top sitting area", he wrote.

The project was no easy task, as can be seen from the series of images shared by radamshome which show the creation process. He admitted that he was "kind of un-prepared for the physical realities of this project". Luckily he is a skilled creative.

"I'm an artist in the video game industry, and don't usually draw with paper so I'm out of practice", he stated. "Anyway, this was the last of about a dozen sketches I did before building the model. Most of the earlier drawings looked too scary, and the last thing I wanted was for it to give her nightmares!"

His inspiration came from a Disney set design, and although he found it to be "difficult", he also learnt a huge amount along the way.

But it cost a pretty penny.

"Materials cost for the entire project, including the room renovations was about $4,250. It took about 350 hours of my time mostly spent on weekends or at night during the past 18 months", he wrote.
