Kid's Playhouse Remodel

I can hardly believe how lucky I was to be able to design this magical space.

This little, under 100 sq foot playhouse received a complete revamp inside and out. It had ton's of potential but had been long ignored. We decided to design a space that can be used now by the school age grand kids and that could transition to being a cool hang out for teens as well as adults.

This little door meant that you had to duck to enter this space. We wanted the access to be easier for kids and adults alike so that the space could be used by every one. We knew that someday the grown ups would want to come in to sip some wine and enjoy the view of the pool without ducking and possibly spilling their wine! Lord Design
