My son and I built this play house for his daughter for Christmas. Went to the local place that sells them and took pictures with his phone. Then drew up some plans of our own design. Next stop Lowe’s. $400 later we had all the materials. This set is selling for $1,200 and more. {some assembly required}

OK guys and gals, here is the pictures of the cookies being shipped out on the plates. Should have created a blog for this project from all the response it drew. Granddaughter loved making them.
Total 14 wooden plates, 2 wlanut, 12 box elder, countless cookies. Lots of happy friends and neighbors.

Nice playhouse. After building the one in my basement last christmas I can not believe the cot of some of them they are selling… and you still have to assemble them anyway.

The cookies look like a great combination project with your granddaughter.
