Very nice house.

Question for you, is there running water in there also? Looks too good to be a playhouse!

After I finished it I seriously considered putting a small window AC unit and just running an extension to the main house on really hot days

It’s good that you have such a lovely and safe place to move into during hurricane season ;-)

awesome job. i was curious what your dimensions were. I am looking into building something just like this, with a little storage for my mower and wheelbarrow, etc. Also, I am new to this type of construction. Would you be okay telling me about what you spent on it. If not, that is okay. Thanks, I would really appreciate it.
