A small playhouse

This playhouse was constructed for my daughter's second birthday. I had no detailed building plan, so the playhouse is a result of (little) design and (a lot of) improvisation.

Playhouse modules

Here you can see how floor and sides are created as separate modules. Forgot to photograph the roof. A test setup features my daughter inspecting the framework. Her name is Kes, named after the female Ocampa crew member in StarTrek Voyager. Yes, I'm a Techie but no, not a Trekky.

The construction of the house.

floor and backside two sides looks like a house rain is wet beating the rain working on the roof time to add the blues almost done simple window locks door lock: wood, curtain rail and one nail

The result

The house as delivered on her birthday. Curtains, a window in the door and furniture didn't make the deadline.

Newer pics

Foto's taken in 2003, almost three years after construction. They show additional construction details and a few new features. They also show some wear and tear on the outside. Cosmetic problems, fortunately. Some paint and tuning here and there and the playhouse will be as good as new. If I only had the time...
