"Mothers of little boys take note: you don't have to have a daughter to design an adorable backyard playhouse!" So begins Judy's description of the incredible playhouse she and her husband Tom made for their son. If you have even the smallest inkling to make one for your child, boy or girl, this is a must-see.

Creating a child's playhouse is something Judy has wanted to do for a long time. She and her husband feel strongly about giving their son as many opportunities as they can to encouraging imaginative play and a playhouse seemed like the perfect venue to enact this value.

They drew up some basic plans and went to work! Tom did most of the construction and Judy swept in with furnishings and decorating. A few of the features of Andrew's amazing playhouse are a lofted playspace, a deck, dormer windows, a ladder and, hold your hats folks, a garage! The level of detail is fantastic and we're sure Andrew and his friends have a great time exploring and playing with each little element. Our favorites include flowerboxes, a handpainted Calvin & Hobbes mural, address marker, doorknock and a homemade Westie mailbox.

If we lived anywhere near Judy you can bet we'd break the do not envy thy neighbor's playhouse commandment. You can see loads more photos and read more of Judy's description on her blog Cutest Little Things. We also recommend her post about the playhouse in the early stages so you can see its humble beginnings.

Thanks Judy!
