Operation Playhouse!

Postby docmaggoo » Sun Aug 18, 2013 6:47 pm

Here's how we are progressing with James & Eleanor's first ever play house in the garden!
We've been searching for ages for the right one.... And we're customising it as well with some personal touches :)

Before:
There was a small, rotten shed at the back of the garden, that we inherited when we moved in! It was not fit for any purpose! It was tucked behind some trees - so seems the perfect spot for a little house for my smalls

Demolition:
Image

It was quite surprising how much space we had!
Image

James was helping (and supervising!!) the build
Image

They were already loving it before it was even finished being built!
Image


The perfect home for two outdoor loving children!
Image

The curtains really help in brightening it up!
Image

Image

James & Eleanor are already enjoying it!Image

Starting on the wooden bunting to hang on the trees around the house!
Step 1: Prep lots of coats of with builders pva glue:
Image

Step 2: Paint with wall paint - James & Eleanor have loved this bit!
Image

We've also started an outdoor kitchen for them too!!

More to come.......

We're planning on adding more-
- vinyl flooring inside
- a metal bell as a doorbell! (Think small wind-chime style!)
- and some plant pots outside for James & Eleanor to grow their own plants!
-...... Just thinking about adding a chalk board inside and some cushions!
