A man down on his luck had been living in an amazing treehouse he constructed on city property in Seattle for the past several years. Last week the city took action to evict him, but his concerned neighbors who benefitted with his presence (the vacant lot was always kept clean and the crime rate kept low as he looked after the place), have rallied together to buy him a used RV.

Two stories to read: Seattle-area residents who’d read the fiirst news report, of the impending eviction, were outraged and called for — and received — a delay in the legal action against the ingenious tree-house maker. (Seattle P-I then followed up with the photos and story of the happy ending. Now, people are trying to come up with a place to park the RV!) Thanks to Sondra Lewis (and also Cynthia S.) for submitting the story!
