This past winter in Jim Thorpe, Pa., Treehouse Masters gave a family a big surprise. The Baines family was the winner of the Delta Faucet Ultimate Treehouse Sweepstakes.
James Baines entered the contest with the hope of gifting his mother, Carrie, the treehouse she’s always wanted. Carrie raised James and his sister Sarah as a single mom before James played matchmaker and connected her with local resident Bill Baines. Now the family, along with Bill’s two daughters (Ashley and Chelsea), has been one big blended family for the last nine years.
The Baines family home is set on a creek side property in Jim Thorpe, Pa. The family is quite active and enjoys camping and fishing and all the other outdoor activities that the area offers, and they even host the “Baines Bash” every summer when extended family and friends come and camp in the backyard.
A large build with a living room, loft bedroom and bathroom, the treehouse has decks for entertaining and an outdoor shower off the back deck. Delta Faucet was very generous and even supplied the fixtures and the groovy shower in a tree was the Carlisle Monitor 17 Series Tub and Shower with H20kinetic technology.
