There is no question that small, gabled playhouses are a backyard classic no matter where you go.  With the "Green" playhouse plan, you'll be able to skip the prefabs and labor bills, and build one yourself for the family.

This 6x10, two story design is capable of fitting into more restrictive areas while still providing over 100 square feet of play space.  A front porch and overhanging loft area help give this playhouse more character and a fun place to have a slumber party!  Six, single pane shed windows can also be installed, allowing loads of sun light and fresh air to whisk through and keep things bright and cool.  Download your copy and start building today!
