Playhouse & Shed Ideas Turned Into Reality

Do you have an idea for a child's playhouse that can't be found on-line or in a book?  Perhaps you just want a modification to an existing shed plan found on this website?  No matter what you may be looking for, Paul's Playhouses can help provide a customized, individual playhouse plan that you can follow and build yourself.

Playhouses are our passion, and providing the tools necessary for families to grab a hammer and saw to build one of their own is what drives us.  We'll work with you, your design and your requirements and stipulations to help make your project became a reality.

The Process

If you are thinking about ordering a custom playhouse plan, make sure you have a solid idea of what you are looking for.  If it's an idea based on something you've seen on-line, be sure to provide a picture or two.  Once we understand what you're after, we'll make up a computer model and provide you with several photos, communicating back and forth until it's just the way you would like it.

After the final design has been agreed to, we'll get to work on writing a step by step plan to build the playhouse.  These custom plans will be in the same format as all the other plans we offer.  To get an idea of what they look like, check out this free plan. For most designs, expect the conception and writing process to take about 2 weeks. If you are looking for a modification of one our available plans, costs can range between $200-$300.  If you want to have a completely new and custom design made up for you, costs can range between $300-$800.  If the idea you have is more involved, the costs could be higher.  After you present us with what you want, we will give you a quote.

Normally, Paul's Playhouses will retain the rights to the custom plans we produce, and sometimes end up selling them as normal plans on the website.  If you wish to have the right to build an unlimited number of your custom design, or have exclusive rights to the plan where they will not be sold here, please inform us of that beforehand in order to provide an accurate quote.


Typically, we require half the cost up front, and half after the design has been finalized.  A one time, full payment is also fine if that is more convenient for you.  If you want to also have the 3D model that the plan will be based on, we ask that the full cost of the plan be paid first.  Sometimes we will offer the custom plan for sale on our website.  Again, if you would like the exclusive rights to the design, an additional fee will be required.

If you wish to get the ball rolling for your custom playhouse plan, fill out the contact form with your name, number and description of what you want, or e-mail if you would like to send attachments.  We'd love to hear from you and see how we make your dream playhouse come alive!
