Backyard Playhouse

Build a children's playhouse with everything they need for summer fun: Slide, swing, clubhouse, sandbox, and even a small deck.

Kids will love playing in the enclosed playhouse perched above a ground-level sandbox. And after scrambling up the ladder, children can escape down the slide at the other end. A Dutch door doubles as a make-believe store counter. Simple window grids prevent falls, yet let in lots of light and air.
