Attention to Detail
Little touches take this playhouse a notch above the norm. Two low-voltage Arts and Crafts-style fixtures on the front porch provide illumination. While the interior is filled with inexpensive furniture painted green and yellow, the porch required a bit more planning. A custom-made swing invites children to take a break on the shady porch. Even life in a dream house can be tiring.
Built To Last
Think of alternative uses for a playhouse. After children have grown up, use it as a potting shed or for storing potted plants during winter. When the grandchildren arrive, the structure can return to its original purpose.
