Oink, Oink!  Hee-haw!  Cockadoodledoo!   Well, it seems like we're near a barn, the Barn & Silo playhouse to be exact.  This plan is an ideal club house for a little one who wants to match the big kid's farm barn with one more to their size and minus the smell. With a gambrel roof and a two story silo to boot, this realistic barn house is something your kids will love to walk, run, climb and gallop all though out!

There are two versions of the barn playhouse, one with the silo and one without.  The 12x19, full sized silo plan features over 300 square feet of usable play space so if the friends come stopping by, you'll be able to handle them. If you can yield a circular saw, you can build this!

Is this plan not exactly what you're look for and want something smaller or larger?  We offer a smaller 8'x10' barn that takes up much less room and is easier on the wallet, and a larger barn shed plan hosted on our sister site, PaulsSheds.com.
