Very cute little house that looks verywell made. One technical criticism though. The roof boards should really be oriented in the other direction from the peak of the roof to the lower edge of the roof instead of the length of the roof. The longer boards will warp and split after awhile. Plus the lengthwise boards allow nailing on one side only while the other way allows a row of nails on both sides of the the bottom and overlaying boards, which will also help prevent cupping.
I’m just saying this in case someone wants to copy the roof idea.

GRizz, My g-kids are to old or have their own playset my son built, see in my projects. I doubt if you could by the materials for that too :-))

Mike, I noticed the roof too. I have to wonder why somebody who did that nice a job would do the roof like that? It would be easy to slap a second coat on top of it :-))
