I love this playhouse - I need plans. Do you have them? I'm a novice and would really like to build this for my granddaughters.

Hi, I wish I had plans, I just drew it up, marked everything with masking tape and then started building. It was a fluid process and changed each day, e.g. at first I built the interior wall to be narrower and after a few nights of staring at it I decided to tear it down and make it wider. Thanks!

Hi, I'm not sure if you have seen the other pictures of the playhouse but you could probably get a good answer for each of your questions by looking at the others. It's built into the wasted space under the stairs leading to the basement, there is no second floor. It's about 5' wide and 7' deep. Thanks!

Hello, I built the door and windows using wood and acrylic sheets (http://www.lowes.com/Building-Supplies/_/N-1z13cih/pl?Ntt=clear+plexiglass+sheets). I made the door using a plain slab from HD (http://www.homedepot.com/Doors-Windows-Interior-Doors-Slab-Doors/Masonite/h_d1/N-5yc1vZbuhsZyq/R-100034380/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&storeId=10051#.UPWKCeQ0WSo). I bought the interior barn horizontal window (not visible in this picture) from an ebay playhouse window seller and their service was great (http://stores.ebay.com/Shed-Windows-and-More/Shed-Windows-Small14-x-21-/_i.html?_fsub=521346010&_sid=128008910&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322). Thanks!

My husband is trying to replicate your door. Could you tell me the measurement of your door frame and the measurements of your top and bottom split door? Thank you so much!
