A common, recurring dream among apartment dwellers is to find a door that opens to a (huge) room you never knew you had. (We hate waking up from this dream.) In Kathryn's case (a homeowner) this dream sort of came true. Her husband convinced her to create a "bonus" room in the attic space above their garage and in the process they discovered a little, unused nook behind a wall. Tempted to seal it up, they thought better of it and instead created a small playhouse for their kids.

The diminutive doorway really kills us with its cuteness. Kathryn is adding to the playhouse over time and so far has included a small table and chair set, a mirror for dress-up and a curtained window perfect for puppet shows.

You can see more photos as well as a before photo at the excellent blog she keeps with Mellisa, Nanny Goat.
