what do you think to this playhouse mums?

do you think it would be dangerous with the stairs/ladder?.

do you think it would look stupid in a med/large garden?.

also because it has a bunk will that mean it has a lower celling height in the downstairs?

I had that when I was younger.
No more dangerous than stairs anywhere else?!
Our garden wasn't very big and it was fine.

thanks bogie, what do you think to the head room?
did you enjoy it as a child?

Do you have a climbing frame?

Pound for pound we have found the climbing frame has been a better investment for the kids than the playhouse we had at the old house (like the one in your picture) ever was.

DD and DS both get up and get dressed without any problem now just to be able to go on it before school and it has been a pirate ship and log cabin and all types of stuff.

We have a barn now in the garden rather than a playhouse and the only benefit of it - I thought it would be great as would mean we already had a readymade playhouse - is to store toys in!

Just something to think about.

head room is fine in it if I remember right, I had great fun decorating it I think I painted it about 15 different colours in the years that I had it.

As said on your other thread, if you're spending that much money, get a full size summerhouse which will last them longer.
