Breton bought the land using the earnings he made through TikTok. It took him two years to build his 200-sq foot treehouse. "The tree house is my living space and I have a bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bathroom. It’s definitely liveable, beautiful, and functional – I collect rainwater off the roof to drink and it flows into the kitchen and bathroom. I’ve also got solar panels for electricity, I use it for my kitchen and wi-fi to make TikToks – I don’t miss a thing from my old life really," Breton told The Metro.

Breton also regularly shares videos and pictures of him from his treehouse. Take a look at one of his videos here where he shared how he lives entirely on rainwater.
