Here is a Playhouse/shed I built for the kids (and for me when I am in the doghouse). It took three weekends to complete and is post and beam construction. The playhouse is 8’ x 8’ on the inside and the shed portion is 4’ x 8’ deep. I also added a balcony which is 4’ deep and 8” wide. we recycled the swing support and the rock climbing section from an old play set that we tore down. the playhouse section is 4’ off the ground and therefore I have access to the 4’ x 8” space underneath. the entire thing is made form rough 12” pine boards and we plan to add some type of water sealant to the outside. here are some more pics from the build.

Here is a table and benches that I made for the inside.

Hope you like and as always questions and comments are always welcome.

Look like lots of fun for the kids, and I can’t imagine you being in the doghouse anytime soon if you pulled that off in 3 weeks. Don’t tell my wife you finish such large projects so quickly!
