The Shire Cubby Playhouse is a wonderful cottage-style garden building that makes an enchanting space for the little ones to make their own. Two opening criss-cross windows make the play space bright and airy, and the veranda adds a beautfiul finishing touch that provides shade in the summer months and shelter during cooler times of year.
A slightly larger playhouse, the Cubby gives more space than other models and allows room for the children to keep playing in it as they grow. This playhouse is made from high-quality planed softwood in a sturdy tongue and groove shiplap construction, meaning it is better sealed from the elements and aesthetically pleasing. The floor is also constructed from tongue and groove boards for a more water resistant, longer-lasting build, and the roof is made from solid sheet Oriented Strand Board (OSB).
The two opening windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass, and both the windows and door have safety hinges included as standard to protect little fingers.
This Shire playhouse is supplied with a dip-treated base coat as standard, with a top coat available as an option for a stronger and golden brown finish. The Cubby Playhouse does not come 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 Cubby 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.
