I just had to show you this amazing DIY bicycle powered elevator built for this tiny tree house cabin that’s up in air.
Ethan got sick of climbing the ladder dozens of times a day to and from his self-built treehouse.
So he did what anyone who owns a self-built treehouse would do…
Build a cheap DIY elevator out of a bicycle.
So now when friends visit they can simply use the ladder… Or they can have a lot more fun this way.
In this post you’re going to get to see Ethan’s DIY treehouse, his DIY elevator, and briefly how did it all.
