Tree houses are fun and all, but climbing all the way up, and then all the way back down can be a chore.

That’s why YouTube user Ethan Schlussler built a special elevator that’s powered by his bicycle, and includes a counter-weight to get him up into his tree house, and then safely back down to the ground.

Have a look at it in action below.
