It has been a while since I have posted. But I have been busy in the shop. More on that in my blog. This post is about my daughter’s Christmas gift. It was 8 years ago that I built out a playhouse area for my daughter in the basement. She and her friend have put it to good use over the years but she was getting a bit to big for it and it was becoming a collector of crap in the basement.
She is now 9 and loves American Girl, they are starting to wander aroud the house a bit too much so I figured she needed a more central location to play. I removed the old sliding board that went to her loft space and built a 5 room play space with storage below. The loft is still an area she can get up to and read in or relax if she likes.
The last pic shows how I wrapped it. She worked on a number of things in the shop and the basement with me while this was happening but she was not allowed to look n the playroom so I would walk her from my office to the shop blindfolded. She was a great sport and very excited about it.
I also built 2 new beds, a bookcase, a wardrobe, a fireplace and chair. We are looking forward to working on the kitchen together along with a few more chairs.
Thanks for looking.
