Apologies for the poor quality photos. My wife and I decided to get a playhouse for our firstborn’s third birthday. After spending considerable time looking at the new kits as well as used sets on craigslist, I decided I could save us some cash and build a better one than what was available. 40 hours and $1500 later I’ve nearly finished this playhouse. Constructed entirely of western cedar, using bolts and deck screws. I followed the national safety guidelines to ensure it was constructed in such a way to minimize potential injuries. I’ve still got some of the finish trim to do, as well as a swing/monkey bars off the back side (which will connect to my eventual “brewers cabana”). Pretty happy with the results, especially considering a similar kit would have cost us at least double what I spent. My daughters love it!. I was worried my oldest would be to afraid of the climbing wall, but after one lesson she climbed it like she was a rock rat in Yosemite!
