A-frame type clubhouses are both simple to construct and provide a sweet escape for the kids. This 6x6 and 8x8 design is reminiscent of an isolated Maine camp, but takes up a lot less space. The look is classic, the labor and cost is low, what's holding you back from making your kids something amazing?

Of course, if you are looking for something more substantial, be sure to also check out the Weekender playhouse plan too.
