Slanted or "crooked" clubhouses seem to be all the rage nowadays, and for good reason.  These kooky birdhouse looking structures are just plain fun.  With an atypical design, slanted windows, bright colors and cool accessories, there is nothing here a kid wouldn't love.  Plus it's elevated, allowing room for a sandbox at the bottom, and a slide, rock climbing wall and ship ladder for fun access and exit.

Designed for ages 3-10, this simple, 10x12 playhouse will certainly be the talk of the town in no time. Speaking of towns,If you have a zany community in mind, our hourglass and wavy style houses will fit in perfectly.  Download this plan and start building this weekend!
