This Real Value Playhouse is made from pressure treated timber.  Supplied ready fro self assembly

It has a standard central door with a diamond cut out and a non-opening rectangular window on either side, felt shingled roof with straight ridge and facia boards.

The Cottage Playhouse makes a lovely addition to any playground and is most frequently used for encouraging imaginative role play games as well as a back drop for school plays.

As with all our standard playhouses there are no moving parts other than the door which has a piano hinge and door knobs on both sides of the door for safety.

The glazing is polycarbonate and the internal finish is a smooth plywood lining. 

A soft floor is  fitted which can be easily removed and cleaned.

You could always paint this product yourself if you wanted to.

  • Specification
    Playhouse with cut out

    All our doors are built with safety as a paramount concern. All are a special non-trap design, using a piano hinge down the whole length of the door, and then a rebate on the inside of the hinged side. 

    • When the door is in the closed position there is a taper between the door and frame, so should little fingers be left in the way they will not be pinched.
    • The doors are held closed with heavy duty magnets; this prevents a child getting locked in accidentally. 
    • The doors have a knob inside and out
    • The cut out window is glazed with unbreakable 2mm polycarbonate sheet. 
    Playhouse - Ground level

    A good quality wooden floor with the added benefit of a waterproof membrane

    • 25mm x 50mm pressure treated timber bearers are fitted at ground level
    • BBA approved waterproof membrane fitted, this membrane wraps around the edge and fits under the wall panels
    • Top surface of 18mm exterior grade plywood  

    A soft floor is fitted to the ground floor of the playhouse once finished - this floor can be removed easily for cleaning.

    Felt Shingles

    A similar product to mineral felt, with the same durability but a more attractive finish which resembles individual house tiles

    • The roof bearers are fitted to span across the apex: the size would depend on the span but it would be a minimum of 75mm x 50mm.  The timber would be good quality redwood, planned with swept edges
    • 12mm wbp external grade plywood is fitted to the top surface
    • A layer of BBA approved breathable membrane is fitted as an under felt
    • A layer of felt shingles will be fitted as the top surface, this will be secured using galvanised staples
    • The roof edges will be secured with a facia board, the top finished with a ridge board and trim fitted to the bottom.
    • Guttering is always recommended and can either be fitted by us or retrospectively by you once installed.
    Playhouse walls - Real Value

    Our playhouses walls are strong and sturdy incorporating plywood lining and a waterproof membrane.

    • The framework is built using top quality 38mm x 50mm profile pressure treated timber, planed and sanded with swept edges.
    • The framework is fixed using zinc yellow screws.
    • External grade WBP 6mm plywood is fitted to the outside face of the framework.
    • A BBA approved waterproof membrane is fitted on top of the plywood. (
    • Waterproof tape is fitted at base of each panel.
    • 12 mm pressure treated cladding is fitted to the outside of the framework (over the plywood and waterproof membrane), it is pinned with galvanised pins 38mm.
    Non opening glazed
    • The windows are built as separate units; once they have been sanded and treated they are glazed with 2mm polycarbonate sheet.  They are then fitted and sealed using clear silicon into the wall.
    • The polycarbonate used is completely clear and will not fade or become brittle with time; it is 200 times the strength of glass making it virtually shatter proof.
