    Homesteading in Alaska ended in 1986.

    I wonder if this guy had built this treehouse like 30 years ago or something? He definitely called it homesteading and said that if he built a house on this property, it was his.

    I'm guessing it has to do with the legal concept of "adverse possession." Every state's laws on this front are a little different, but the basic idea is that if you are in "open and notorious possession" of a piece of property for a specified period of time, and the rightful owner takes no steps to remove you from the land, you gain a legal right of ownership that will supersede that of the actual owner.

    He said he had built a place on the land over 30 years ago.

    I'm all caught up on the show. I downloaded the first season off usenet over the weekend and had a little marathon.

    I now want to buy a house in the woods and have this guy come out and build a treehouse. :)

    I had never heard of this show, but I'm glad I saw this thread. My 10-year-old son will love this show. Just set up an season pass. :)

    The last episode of season 1 was interesting. I did not realize this guy Pete has kinda like a treehouse resort. That Treehouse Point place has like 7 or 8 treehouses that people can rent like a bed and breakfast. If I'm ever in Seattle again, I wouldn't mind driving out there. If he allows for tours and such.

    The treehouse featured on the episode "Christmas Candy Kitchen Treehouse" has apparently not gotten the sign-off from the county. (They are upset about the kitchen and sleeping area.)

    Do they still do the ultra-fake "phone call" where he "leaves" to go help someone in the area? It always took me out of the show since it was so clearly scripted and unnecessary.

    Beautiful. Always fun when the ultra-rich get a little sticking to.

    Really? People build their dream treehouse and you laugh at their misfortune because they have more money than you? Sad.

    I guess I always thought the fake call was funny, because it was so obviously fake. It was just an excuse to get a small glimpse of some other tree house that they'd never spend an entire episode on.

    The second episode of season 3 aired Friday. So, the answer to your question is 'yes'. :)

    I saw that several episodes had been recorded but I thought they all said season 2. I guess I need to go back and look closer. Thanks.

    I enjoy this show, because I like to see things being built. But I know they're editing out a LOT of stuff and recreating some, if not a lot of, scenes. I'd like to know just how long it actually takes from the initial client contact to the final reveal. Two months? Six months? Also, how many jobs does Pete's company do that are less than inspired and are never televised?
