His Senior-Friendly Yurt Treehouse Has An Elevator And A Recycled Jet Hot Tub

This is the man cave, his first and accidental Airbnb project.

Dan started out his career in the air force. Then he spent many years as a plumbing contractor. Below is the airplane hangar turned town!

Then Dan was an inventor for five years with 23 U.S. patents. Here’s inside the hangar!

Today Dan is mayor of Danville, the place he built!

The first thing he built was a mancave out of an airplane hanger. One day his friend suggested putting it up on Airbnb.

And the rest, in many ways, is history. Now Dan is getting to host and meet the most interesting people in the world. And they come to him!

The property is filled with wonder and delight. From off-road Segways, alpalcas, goats, a treehouse yurt, the Danville Inn, and he’s currently keeping busy adding a Woodstock area with VW Buses to Danville…

    What a wonderful idea. This gentleman has empathy and his reaction to the guest’s death really hit me in the gut. I hope his life continues with his dream in creating more like the Woodstock vans.

    This is an incredible passion Dan has. Made me feel so good watching him and his creation. Didn’t see how much property it sits on, does anyone know? What a nice and super talented man. Thanks for making this video possible for us!
