Perfect for the larger garden, the Shire Lodge Playhouse is a stylish building ideal for sparking the imagination. Built over two levels, this playhouse gives the kids a special place to play and learn, allowing them more space to make their own.
A high-quality playhouse, the Lodge’s shiplap cladding uses a sturdy tongue and groove structure to give you a durable 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 also constructed from tongue and groove cladding for a more water resistant, longer-lasting build. The internal height of the playhouse is not affected by the first floor due to it being located above the veranda, meaning there is still room for adults to join in the fun on the lower level.
The Lodge maximises the space available whilst still keeping its stunning looks, making it a excellent addition to any garden. Its safety features also add peace of mind, as adults know all the windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass, and the door and four ground-level opening windows are fitted with safety hinges to keep little fingers safe.
All 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 Lodge 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.
