Victorian Playhouse with Tree

Victorian Playhouse with Tree

Custom built, this Victorian playhouse comes with its own tree and a set of wood stairs to climb. No crane or forklift is needed to install this house in your yard. It comes in multiple pieces that are easily carried by two to four people to just about any location.

Designer Advice:

The artificial tree has a hefty steel frame and a CNC router foam trunk. The trunk and branches are coated with a poly-urea industrial coating (also used to line truck beds or new factory roofs.) The stairs are all wood and made with custom CNC routed pickets. All the tree leaves are made from an exterior poly-blend that will last for years outside in the sun or snow.

Two Piece Shipwreck Playhouse

Two Piece Shipwreck Playhouse

This huge pirate ship playhouse measures 8’ wide and 18’ long when combined. The two parts of the shipwrecked ship can be separated and placed farther apart in your yard to enhance the disaster and get the imaginative juices flowing.

Designer Advice:

Included with the pirate shipwreck is a concrete sculpted tree that supports the larger section of the playhouse. As well, an additional bow shack and water cannons and water balloon launchers let you get wet on the high seas of your backyard playhouse. A slide, swings, rock wall and net climb give multiple access points to the top decks, and tattered sails with pirate decor keep the fantasy going.

Tree House Playhouse

Tree House Playhouse

Handmade and fully customizable, this huge playhouse comes with its very own tree. The house can be accessed by a rope net ladder, a rope bridge or a more traditional ladder. Leave the house by sliding down a curved tube slide.

Designer Advice:

A series of steel posts are painted the color of tree bark and support the structure. A giant pecan tree “grows” through the house but doesn’t bear any weight. The interior is finished with sloped wood ceilings and floor and includes a sleeping platform with a Gothic-style window to gaze out of. A small AC unit can be installed below the playhouse while a fan pushes the air into the house through a vent.

Buying Guide

Whether or not planning permission is needed for a playhouse will depend on a few factors.

Playhouses are typically regarded as temporary structures, but the maximum size of a playhouse that can be housed on your property without a permit depends on where you live.

A single story structure less than 200 ft² is usually exempt from permit rules, but your municipality has its own specific bylaws regarding sizing. A lower square footage might be the limit in urban centers, whereas a rural township often allows larger playhouses to exist without permission.

To be exempt from a permit, a playhouse cannot be an accessory dwelling unit (ADU). Accessory dwelling units are defined as a secondary dwelling attached to, or on, the same property as a single family home. This includes basement apartments, tiny homes, and in-law suites.

If your playhouse includes utilities like plumbing or electricity, or if it exceeds the maximum square footage and height set out by your municipality, it may require a permit. It’s critical to do this research about laws in your area before you begin construction or purchase big playhouses for sale to ensure you obtain proper permits as required.

The cost associated with big playhouses for sale can be steep, but the price to ensure that it’s safe is well worth it. Building a custom playhouse will generally cost between $60 and $150 per square foot; remember, you’re building a small structure! It’s a good idea to purchase an existing kit instead of making your own, again, to ensure that it’s completely safe for the children who will be playing in it.

There is a broad variety of items you can place in a playhouse for your children to play with.

Child-sized chairs and tables are essential. They should be light enough for your children to rearrange or take them in and out of the playhouse.

Add blackboards, papers, crayons and markers. These give your kids a chance to draw and write to their heart’s content. Create an art wall by coating it in magnetic paint allowing the kids to have fun with magnetic letters or display different forms of art with magnets. Stock on modeling clay and other art supplies so they can hone their skills.

Toy garden tools and brooms would give the playhouse a realistic house-feel. Get toy dishes, plastic foods and one or more aprons for a pretend kitchen. Add a mailbox and provide envelopes they could color as they play post office. Invest in some fun puzzles and board games for the whole family.
