2004-10-18 - In the summers of 2003 and 2004, the perfect treehouse took shape in a four-stem maple in the back yard of a house in Acton, MA. The treehouse was built by Erik J. Heels and his three children: Sam, Ben, and Sonja. This photo later served as the inspiration for the logo for GiantPeople (www.giantpeople.com).
