The Colleen Playhouse is a charming little cottage play plan for toddlers and younger children.  As a much smaller re-imagining of our Dutch Colonial inspired Country Cottage design, the Colleen has a barn or "gambrel" styled roof and single front dormer.

This plan comes in two different sizes (6x6 & 8x8) to accommodate any size yard.  Real glass windows can be added to allow plenty of natural light in while keeping the elements out, and a bran style roof and front dormer provide sufficient headroom for adults to play as well.
