Owning a house is one of the biggest achievements in a person’s life. But no matter how fun this might seem, it also brings a lot of responsibility and gives you a headache if something goes wrong. At least that’s what happened to TikTok user @_arsmath, who decided to share her story of being a homeowner of a house that ended up being crushed by a tree. In her now viral video with almost 5M views, the woman revealed what struggles she had to go through when living in her house, how much repairing it needed until the situation reached its “grand finale.” The woman was extremely lucky not to get severely injured or even killed that night when one of the trees near her house fell on it while she was inside.

One of the first videos the woman uploaded on her TikTok questioned “what’s the worst that could happen” when owning the house? The viewers could see a picture of the user’s house and then a picture that was taken a year and a half later when the fallen tree had already ruined the house. This started a debate about how important it is to take care of trees that are near people’s houses as a lot of Tiktok users shared their own unfortunate experiences of having a tree fall on their homes too.

In her second video dedicated to explaining the situation with her house, the TikToker revealed more details about how unlucky this place was. The woman found out about one of the trees that was dead and had to be cut down, which cost $7k. She also showed a burst pipe that would cost $3k to get fixed. The list went on with a faulty washing machine that flooded the house, an “indoor waterfall” that made her change the roof, and so on. To top off all of these damages, the final line was crossed when one of the trees that were surrounding her house just fell on it and destroyed almost everything in the house.

Despite these ongoing and tiresome repairs, the end of this situation didn’t look like one that someone could predict

The TikTok user shared how her home looked from inside, also revealing the place where she was when the accident happened, admitting that she was lucky to even be alive. However, the homeowner didn’t get away from being admitted to the hospital because of her injuries: she left the place with a concussion and serious bruises, and also admitted to suffering from PTSD.

Even though it seems that the woman tells this in a funny and light-hearted manner, she is sharing her experience so that people can learn from this situation and make sure to be safe even when they are in their own property. A lot of people were curious to know what happened after her house was completely ruined, whether her insurance company helped her and what she did afterward.

If you’re curious what happened to the property, the old house was demolished and a new one was built and then sold!

The woman disclosed that after receiving the insurance money, she renovated the house (she even shared a short bit where people could see how the house was demolished) and made it a perfect place to live. However, the TikTok user didn’t live there herself, but sold it and even made some profit, so it’s nice to know that this whole nasty situation turned out well for her.
