Craft: Kids Clubhouse

Every kid needs a playhouse or club house, so I set out to build our youngest grand child a club house. My idea came from a playhouse that we spotted in town one day. I came home and searched Google to find some plans. I couldn't find what i really wanted so I just winged it.

The club house is 6x6 feet including the porch. It is almost 6 foot high at the peak, the roof is a 3-12 pitch. I used lap siding, and rough cedar for the trim. It took about 35 hours to build, at a cost of around $700.00

Love it. I've seen these types of houses for sale for $2,000 or more at nice nurseries, but they don't have the person touch that yours does!

You really "winged" it good John. This little house is precious, and what wouldn't I have given for something like it when I was a kid. Your "grandies" are sure lucky to have you.

All the best, Julia in Boca Raton, FL
