Do you have a family that consists of more than one child?  Or does your one child have way too many toys they've gotten from the grandparents?  Then the two story Dandy Duplex is what you're seeking!

The 7x10 Dandy Duplex playhouse plan makes the best of a compact footprint and provides a total of 140 square feet of play space.  There is no interior ladder connecting both levels, but rather a side wall ship ladder, maximizing the interior space and providing a bit more privacy for it's smaller tenants.  Eleven glass shed windows can also be installed to allow plenty of light in, and the 5' 6" walls will allow children grow and still have space into their teens.
