We were very happy with these plans! This is a great playhouse if you want a smaller, fairly easy-to-build playhouse, and want something much nicer than the plastic playhouses on the market. Took a little over $800 in materials and maybe 60-80 hours of my time to build it. Complete with dragonfly door knocker, cedar bird house, and inside chalk board. Only additional accessories yet will be a couple window boxes, a mail box, and stone walkway. I cheaped out a little on the siding and used exterior plywood instead of red wood boards, and we painted the plywood using exterior paint. But we're really happy with the end result and the kids love it! I would definitely recommend this construction plan to anyone interesting in building a similar-sized playhouse.

I found this plan by "chance" and loved how the playhouse looked. I showed it to my husband and he said to buy it. He finished building it in less than a week and just in time for our daughter's 2nd birthday. We added a couple of things to it...the swings, mailbox...she absolutely loves it.

On reviewing these plans, the instructions and drafted plans are quite clear. I don't think I will have any problem following them to construct this playhouse for my grandson. Thanks for your prompt service and quality product!
"Every time I have been in a Rockler store around the country I have left feeling that I received wonderful service and most always had exactly what I needed in stock at a fair to great price. the only complaint, if it can be called that, is that I have to drive over 45 minutes to reach the nearest Rockler store. My wife probably appreciates that distance, as I am certain that if one was as close as I wished it to be, we would have very little left in our checkbook!" -
