P … Playhouse

EEEE! I am so excited for this post because it is something that I have been kicking around in my head for a while now.

I love to dream about what it will look like, what materials I will use, how I will landscape around it …

As Mr Man so eloquently said …

When it comes to being creative, your “instructions” are the only ones that really matter.

That being said … let me show you a few photos of playhouses that I found that I think are cute.

Playhouse 2

Playhouse 3

Playhouse 6

Playhouse 4

Playhouse 5This last one is my favorite because of the fireplace 🙂

What I love about these playhouses …

1. Porch

2. Small front door but large adult door

3. Fake fireplace that makes it look so homey!

4. A loft to sleep in

5. Dormers


6. One dormer or window on top

The size will be dictated by my city code. I will begin sketching my idea soon. When Spring gets here … I will be ready to build!

I have other photos of playhouses on my Pinterest Playhouse board if you would like more ideas.

    This brings back memories for me. My Dad built my sister and I a playhouse and although I don’t have it still, it was very special to me.

    Have fun with your building and with a-z.

    Those are wonderful playhouses! I wanted to build one for my nephew but I’m a lousy builder.

    Lovely! #’s 4,6,8 and 9 are the ones i really like. # 9 the last one is my favorite also! It invites you in from the outside! It intrigues you and something inside says” I have to go in there!” The last one is stunning!

    Thinks for sharing your creative ideas! Creating is the spice of life!

    What a joy! Never stop being your creative self!!

    Waiting for Spring has me doing a lot of research on how I am going to build it 🙂 I hope that mine will “invite them inside”.
    Thank you for taking the time to comment!
