I’m not sure if this bridges a gap between wood working and building, but it was fun to do. Almost all materials are either reclaimed from demolitions or “waste” from new builds. I built the slide out of (what we call wiggle board) and epoxy. The three doors access some outdoor storage.

It’s very colorful and well done and a wonderful thing to build for a child. Congratulations.

Wow very nice job ! Think your under selling it when you call it a playhouse, Maybe a more appropriate name is SKY CASTLE. Great work !
