Yesterday I brought you the interesting tale of Dave “Squirrelman” Csaky, who until recently, lived in a treehouse. He trains squirrels and lives like a squirrel, hence why I wrote about him.
Csaky got kicked out his treehouse, and is now living in a donated old RV. It’s easy to sympathize with Csaky’s in-the-branches lifestyle — how cool that someone bucks societal normals and lives up in a tree. Now Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer Josh Trujillo brings you the other side of the story, and some great photos to boot.
“His life was not something one would be envious of. Living in the tree was tough. It swayed during windstorms, leaked when it rained, was cold, loud and maybe a bit scary. He was proud of his construction – even though he claimed he had no idea what he was doing – and often would jump up and down on the plywood laid over 2x4s – 40 feet up.”
