While King Author's folk tales are wrapped in both fantasy and reality, there's no question that this 2 story castle plan will spark the imagination and bring stories of dragons, knights and princess's to life.

A great design for both boys and girls, this mid sized, 8x8 castle playhouse plan won't take up too much yard space and is easy to build.  A smaller version of the Whimsical Castle, and the next step up from the Fun Fortress, King Author's castle takes the best aspects from both to create something really wonderful.  If you can yield a circular saw, you can build this!
