Two stories, fun details and medieval inspiration, kids will fall in love this design.  This plan is right in the center size for our castle designs.  The next step larger is the Whimsical Castle playhouse and for a smaller, more simplistic design, choose the Fun Fortress.  Let the enchanted being!
