Inside the House

Photos by Kaity

This is looking inside the playhouse from the large window. The cabinets are re-purposed from the upstairs real kitchen that was gutted earlier that month. :)

It was all done on a shoestring budget as a Christmas gift for 2 lucky little girls. Siding and shingles, etc. were all from Habitat for Humanity's Re-Stores. Carpet squares are left-overs from a school project. Most other pieces came from Craigs List or already existed in their collection.

This photo has one question

Sorry, a friend of mine built this. It's simple construction using 2'x4's and plywood. There actually isn't even a mattress up there as my kids don't sleep in it, they just play up there. Its carpeted on the top. I'm sure you could show the photo to any builder and they could come up with something!

Such an awesome playspace that could be adjusted to suit them as they grow, also if daycare was an income option, this place is so cool for that, without the big privacy wall of course
