Stylish, fun and made with love playhouse

This was a fun family project!  You can find 'makeshift' if you will, playhouses for hundreds of dollars at the big box stores however they are usually not so attractive and there's really not much to them on the insides.  So my handy husband came up with the structural design and I of course went crazy on the interior design!  I wanted a creative place for kids to use their imagination, relax and read, play and to just believe in...well...make believe!
