PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania family may have to remove its treehouse due to zoning codes that ban such structures.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1Rgx52z ) that the family received a notice in March asking them to remove the treehouse in their front yard in the next 15 days. Leet Township officials told the family that the local zoning code prohibits accessory structures in front yards.

The family has now filed for a variance with the town’s zoning board in an attempt to keep it.

Jonathan Truchan says his family had reached an agreement with the township to keep the treehouse until Oct. 1, but still received a notice.
