(Middleburg) -- A judge has upheld a central Pennsylvania zoning board's decision requiring a man to dismantle a partially-constructed tree house that he was building for his daughter.
The Selinsgrove Zoning Board told John ``J.C.'' Carlson in June that the tree house violated the borough's zoning laws. He was building it on his front lawn as a gift for his daughter's 11th birthday.
Carlson appealed the decision in Snyder County Court, which backed the zoning board today.
Snyder County Judge Louise Knight told Carlson that getting a zoning variance is difficult and in his case, there's no basis for granting one.
Eleven-year-old Samantha Carlson said she's disappointed but she isn't giving up on having a playhouse. She says her father will ``put it on wheels.''
