Having reviewed numerous children’s playhouses for several years, we assure you that this wooden playhouse is one of the most beautiful and safest ones. If you’ve been struggling to control your children’s behaviour, this playhouse has come to your rescue. It comes complete with all the features your children need to have fun.
The product was designed with children in mind and will keep them amused throughout the day.
We were impressed by the 4 fixed windows and the half-glazed door. These provide enough ventilation for your children, especially when playing during the summer months amid warmer temperatures. In addition, the raised tower design gives the wooden playhouse a modern appeal that will add some décor to your garden.
Included with the wooden playhouse are a solid sheet roof and floor. The roof is made with dark grey sand felt to protect the young ones from the damaging UV rays of the sun and also provide waterproof protection from the rain. Water penetration will not occur because of the interlocking and durable wood.

As you can see from the materials that it has been made of, it is clear that this wooden playhouse is of great quality. It was crafted with natural wood which gives its durability. The outdoor elements such as the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun and heavy rain will not cause a problem for the natural wood.
The raised tower design will further prevent the penetration of water. The pillars are sturdy enough, so there is no need to dig large holes to insert them.
The sturdy and fixed windows provide ample protection to withstand strong winds or rain. The roof will also play a role in shielding the windows against storm damage. Although it feels light, the materials are sturdy. The wood is interlocked. This gives extra reassurances that it will protect the inside against any water penetration.
Once installed, the wooden playhouse will not be shaken or destroyed by the blowing winds because of the use of premium quality materials. It will last a long time in your garden without the need to replace it or move it to another wind-free location. A natural wood finish has been applied to the playhouse, so it won’t deteriorate rapidly as a result of the exposure to sunlight or rain. The dark grey sand felt roof will also plays a role in protecting it from the sun.
