-The Classic Cottage-

The Classic Cottage is cute, compact, and cozy.  It has all of the features of our other playhouses, just a little smaller.   It is still large enough for adults to stand tall inside.  Features include a Dutch door, real working window shutters, flower boxes, and a loft/shelf above the front porch. The cottage stands approximately 7’ tall and is 6’ wide by 6’ long. The roof provides a rain tight shelter so the cottage can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

The cottage is heavily constructed of solid wood and plywood. The floor, wall, and roof framing is 2x3 and 2x4 fir lumber. The walls are covered with heavy lap siding. The interior floor is 1x6 solid wood planks. The porch is 1x4 fir decking.

The Classic Cottage kit is delivered  stained and painted (interior and exterior). The walls are pre-built panels. The windows, doors, railings, and flower boxes are completely assembled. You just screw it together and finish the roof.  An optional assembled cedar shingle roof is also available.
