Playhouse weather isn't quite here for us, but still -- wow -- we just had to share this fabulous handmade playhouse we recently spotted on Etsy. According to its designer, "I designed it when my daughter was two and I just couldn't contemplate having one of those ghastly plastic Wendy houses in our garden!" This is definitely an improvement!
Handmade in the UK of natural English willow, this house is designed to delight your child's imagination for a few years. And when its time is over, after serving as everything from a castle to a teepee, it can return to the elements gracefully, as either mulch, kindling, or compost.
Unfortunately, these made-to-order houses are available only in the UK... unless you really, really, REALLY want one, in which case you should convo the designer and see if you can work things out.
