    Heartbreak for Florida grandmother, 65, told to tear down her tree house paradise where she's lived with her pet racoon for 25 years
    A Florida grandmother who has lived in a tree house for 25 years, has been told that she must tear it down or face nearly $7,000 in fines.

    Shawnee Chasser, 65, has spent the last year fighting Miami-Dade County over her home called Shawnee's Paradise, that sits between an oak and strangler fig tree in her late son Joshua's yard, according to the Miami Herald.

    The county has said the tree house was built illegally, is unsafe and must be demolished in the next four months or she could face $7,000 in fines. Chasser said she has already paid $3,000 in fines.

    But the grandmother, who mass-produces and sells Shawnee's Greenthumb Popcorn which is stocked in Whole Foods, vowed that she will not take anything down and will continue to live there with her pet raccoon Coonie.

    Authorities said the cottage that is built around a man-made pond and water fountain must be demolished in the next four months or the 65-year-old grandmother could face thousands in fines

    [​IMG]
    But Chasser vowed that she will not take anything down. Last September she was issued a citation by county code enforcement for illegally running a rooming house and for work conducted at the property without permits, including the pond, fountain and the tree house

    [​IMG]
    Someone complained that Chasser was running the property like an apartment complex and campground which prompted authorities to investigate

    'I'll chain myself to that tree house,' Chasser told the Herald.

    Chasser sleeps in a double bed and her home is decorated with family pictures, books and a small couch.

    'When I am up in my tree house in thunder, lightning and rain, I am in heaven,' Chasser told the Herald.

    Problems started a year ago when someone complained that Chasser was running the property like an apartment complex and campground in the middle of a single-family neighborhood.

    Last September she was issued a citation by county code enforcement for illegally running a rooming house and for work conducted at the property without permits, including the pond, fountain and the tree house.

    It is called Shawnee's Greenthumb Popcorn and according to its website it is full of 'organic ingredients, guaranteed to be free of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s.)

    'Our commitment is to make a difference in the world, supporting family farmers and helping to improve the quality of “Mother Earth’s” soil, one pop at a time.'

    She adds that the brand aims to promote healthier eating and challenge the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and malnutrition plaguing our society.

    'Processed foods are void of nutrition and high in fat and calories. Our popcorn is full of nutrients and minerals, and it leaves you wanting more just because it tastes so good and your body is feeling happy!,' the website adds.

    The popcorn is sold in Whole Foods stores around Florida.

    And living in tree houses seems to run in the family.
