Hi everyone here is a playhouse i did two summers ago for a Friend’s little boy named Ziggy .
It is 8 ft wide , 6 ft deep and 12 high . I used 4×8 sheets of plywood siding and tinted plexiglass for all 11 windows .The playhouse was built in 22 sections i built it at my house then i reconstructed it once i got it to where it is now .

Pretty nice playhouse, though it seems to be about the same size as the bird houses. Difference is the number of occupants. Very cool.

That is one fantastic looking playhouse. Great job!

My only criticism is that all those windows must make it hard to conduct all the secret meetings boys are supposed to hold in their clubhouses. :-)

Wow, what a lucky kid to have that, I would love it myself too. I don’t know what I’d do with it but I’d probably keep gardening things in it, sure would beautify a yard.
