Ethan Schlussler has crafted a life of fantasy. For two years he pedaled his homemade bike elevator up to his treehouse bedroom. He built a treehouse that can rotate 360 degrees with a hand crank. He dug a 10-room snow-cave for an overnight with 10 friends. His property is rigged with ziplines. He even drives fantastical vehicles: he's converted a lawn mower into a rally car and an abandoned Toyota into a rock crawler.
