to say my dad is pretty awesome is an understatement.....last week, he spent 6 days (3/4's of which were raining) building taylor and walker a playhouse in our backyard.  he hammered away in the rain to finish it before taylor's birthday party.  it was so nice having him here....this AM taylor woke me up crying saying "i miss papa c"....i have to say, i miss him too.  i cannot thank my dad enough for the special gift he gave my children....we love everything about it.

Your dad has always had an amazing ability to build things. This one is amazing. Hope that the children enjoy it!!

Hey Allison, i actually found a picture of a playhouse on pinterest that i liked and showed my dad...we used that as a starting point and then he did all of the figuring on what materials he would need and he went to lowes at bought it all....so there's no kit.
