SELINSGROVE, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania man says he will soon dismantle a partially constructed tree house he was building for his daughter.

John Calrson of Selinsgrove told The (Sunbury) Daily Item (http://bit.ly/1hk3fHm ) that he received a notice this week giving him 30 days to remove the structure.

The Selinsgrove Zoning Board told Carlson in June that the 8-foot-by-6-foot wooden structure violated the borough’s zoning laws.

Carlson started building the tree house in May on a stump in his front yard for his daughter’s 11th birthday. He appealed to Snyder County Court, which backed the zoning board in January.

Carlson said he’s disappointed with the outcome, but the experience was a good life lesson for daughter Samantha because “we stood up for what we believed.”
