With its beautifully traditional design and compact footprint, the high-quality wooden Hide Playhouse from Shire gives children a special place to play and learn outside. Perfect for the smaller garden, and available with the shaped fascia as standard, the Hide is a pretty, petite building with incredible value for money. It really will be a child’s dream come true.
The Hide’s high-quality shiplap cladding uses a sturdy tongue and groove structure to give you a durable yet pretty outer wall, which can also be upgraded to pine logs for improved insulation, sound proofing, and aesthetics. The floor and roof of the playhouse are constructed from high quality Oriented Strand Board (OSB), a revolutionary water resistant board with similar properties to plywood. The single door has a traditional look, with a diamond porthole window and classic fixings, and an optional veranda can be added for shade and shelter as well as improved aesthetics.
All Shire playhouses are fitted with safety hinges, meaning the door of the Hide is specially made to keep little fingers safe. In addition, the windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass.
Shire playhouses are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water-based industrial product, but will not be pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor to the children’s desires. The manufacturer recommends applying a water-based top coat of your choice, preventing the timber from weathering and therefore making the playhouse last longer.
The Shire Hide Playhouse is supplied flat-packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, though you can choose to add assembly if desired.
Please note: Due to the high quality of this playhouse, it is a fairly large structure, meaning it will not be able to fit through a house. Please ensure you have access available round a side passage or alternative access to the desired area where you intend to build it. Delivery will be kerbside unless assembly is chosen.
