Product Code: EPPHC120146

From £4,980 ex. VAT

This raised treehouse with additional platform and sandpit provides something for everyone and encourages multi-level play with a high platform to the left hand side which covers a sandpit below.

The playhouse sits on a platform 3ft (0.9m) from the ground and is accessed via a staircase.  The playhouse itself has a standard door to the front with a diamond shape cut out.  There is a rectangular non-opening window to either side of the door.

There are two additional rectangular windows in the right hand wall and a small diamond window on the left which ensure that plenty of natural light can get into the playhouse.

To the left of the playhouse there is another staircase which leads to a higher platform set at 5ft (1.5m). The open platform provides a great place for adventurous games and even provides a space for small group learning in the summer months. 

A sandpit underneath the higher platform provides a sheltered, more sedate play area.

All raised areas and staircases are protected by balustrade rails.

As with all our standard playhouses there are no moving parts other than the doors which have piano hinges and door knobs on both sides for safety. The glazing is polycarbonate and the internal finish is a smooth plywood lining. A soft floor is also fitted which can be easily removed and cleaned.

    Doors
    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.

    Maintenance Required

    • Ensure that an air gap is maintained under the base and around all sides; check on an regular basis to ensure that there is no build-up of debris.
    • Check edges and corners regularly to ensure that knocks to the structure have not caused a splinter hazard, if that has occurred sand down with sandpaper and re-treat the sanded area.
    • The wood preservative  will need re-coating every so often; (the same type of time scale as your house) this does depend on the prevailing weather conditions but would typically be 2 - 4 years.

    Be aware

    • If decking becomes slippery in the wet this is due to microscopic fungi on the surface, wash off with a diluted bleach solution.
    • If small mould growths appear on the inside this is due to lack of air circulation, wipe down with a diluted bleach solution as soon as visible.
