A-Frame Playhouse Plan

Regular price $ 30.00 Credit Cards Accepted Sale

A-frame type clubhouses are both simple to construct and provide a sweet escape for the kids.  This 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 Big "A" playhouse plan as well!
