Officials tell family to scale back luxury treehouse

GRANITE BAY (AP) - Northern California authorities are telling a Placer County couple to prune back their deluxe treehouse.

Mike and Pat Splinter's 500-square-foot treehouse features a full kitchen, bathroom and all the plumbing. The Animal Planet cable network highlighted the structure last month in the show "Treehouse Masters."

But Placer County deputy planning director E.J. Ivaldi tells the Sacramento Beethat the family already has a full guest cottage on their property. Because of that, authorities say the treehouse's full kitchen, and mattress, must go.

A noted national treehouse designer built the Placer County masterpiece for more than $60,000. The treehouse's owners have not yet commented on the county's order.
