For a guaranteed unique design that's not quite sure what it wants to be, but sure will be doing it differently, the Bogus Birdhouse Playhouse Plan stands above the rest.  A cross between a craft store's woodworking project, a mantel clock and an up arrow, this plan's design is just as much fun as it is wacky and bemused.

While this playhouse may be following the beat to a different drum, you'll still be able to attach a 7' slide to the backside, keep out the elements with it's gable roof and have abundant about of natural light with it's many crooked windows.  Overall, the main point here is for the kids to get outside and have a blast, and the Bogus Birdhouse does just that.
