Sculptor Duncan Foss of Golden faced a deadline of 4 p.m. Monday to take down the treehouse or face legal action. Foss says he's not taking down the hangout he built for his 11-year-old daughter.
City spokeswoman Karlyn Tilley says Golden's chief building official will meet with the city attorney Tuesday. The city likely will issue a summons that could result in a fine.
Foss's backyard structure consists of a rambling series of bright blue decks and elevated boardwalks. Local building officials consider it a hazard. Part of the treehouse burned in December because of an exploding tiki torch.
