The widow of a man who built a bamboo treehouse in Venice, CA says her complaint about the proliferation of "McMansions" in her neighborhood led to an order from the City of LA to demolish the beloved structure.

But on May 22, Eileen Erickson received a two-page letter from the Department of Building and Safety ordering her to “demolish” it. She faces substantial fines and possible imprisonment if she fails to comply with the instructions.
She has since received support from some 450 people who have signed a petition in favor of preserving the treehouse, and City Councilman Mike Bonin’s staff offered to help her “navigate through the system” that identified 17 related code violations.
