Your questions are a stretch from my comments.

Let them take the chances elsewhere, not with me. Same goes for this guy and his tree-house for a young kid.
Right...and this guy is in a much better place to assess the risk than you or I. His tree house that he has not only seen in person but built, his daughter, his experience. You aren't taking any chance with this at all

this is the crap that pisses me off.....they tried to file for a permit. was told it wasnt needed, then they want to come back with "fines, penalties, AND ALSO CHARGE FOR THE TIME OF THE DEPARTMENTS IDIOT SQUAD WORKING ON THE CASE??????

they (the city) is never held responsible for anything. We recently submitted a bid based on their estimated permit cost, won the bid, signed a contract, then when we pulled the permit, it went from their $750 quote to $4200......I cant back charge the client for the cities bull****, so we had to eat it. This bathroom is now being built for free......they only said "oops, we must have goofed somewhere..."

People overlook problems all the time....in person. Hopefully her experience is not short-lived by his optimism. He gave plenty of info in the pics to show it's high risk. We disagree. Fine with me.

There's a slight difference between trying to estimate the size of something based off a pic with no frame of reference and estimating something you're really at.
