A Seattle man used his construction skills and some creativity to make it look like he is committed to having the biggest tree possible.
Patrick Kruger cut his 14′ tree in two and stuck the top on his roof with some creative props to make it look like the tree had broken through the top of his roof.
“I built the prop using a quarter sheet of plywood, sheathing and spare roofing tile,” Kruger told KING 5 in Seattle. “I then bought a 14-foot tree and cut the top 6 feet off and mounted it to the prop. The first attempt was blown off the roof, so I bolted it down with the help of my buddy, Scott Douglas.”
