Our DIY (Do It Yourself)playhouse kits are designed for easy assembly.
Unless otherwise noted, they should require an average of
two adults working four to eight hours to complete.
Panelized walls, pre-cut pieces, and alphabetized labels
help make the process simple, as does the
downloadable full-color instruction manual
(link provided with your purchase).
When assembling your playhouse, please make sure to choose
a level area for installation. We recommend an area that is
covered in crushed stone, patio block, or concrete, in order to form
a base for the playhouse. However, because the playhouse bases
are made from treated lumber, they can be placed directly on the ground.
If you do decide to prepare a base for your playhouse,
make sure it measures 1 foot wider than the house itself on all sides.
If you are interested in moving your playhouse to another location
in the future, you should purchase and install 4 x 4 runners before
completing assembly. Once runners are in place, the playhouse can
be moved by your local tow truck company with the use of a flatbed
and a winch. If you are simply moving the playhouse across the yard,
you can do so with heavy wall PVC piping.

|Our DIY do-it-yourself playhouse kits are perfect for the DIY handyman or unskilled parents! In addition to saving on your shipping costs(compared to a pre-built playhouse), our precut, unpainted, pre-preprimed, ready-to-assemble kits make it easy to build a memory for your child that will last a lifetime!

Your kit will come with a link to an online printable manual to guide you step-by-step! What could be easier!
Delivery of DIY Playhouse Kits via Common Carrier:
Playhouse kits are shipped nationwide via common carrier. When your shipment is expected to be delivered via common carrier, you will be required to have 2 people there to help unload. Your shipment will arrive on a pallet (number of pallets will vary with size of building). The truck driver will help remove the bands and wrapping on the pallet, the 2 people will then be required to unload each panel piece by piece from the truck. However, if you so choose, when you purchase your playhouse you can pay an additional fee to have your playhouse delivered with a lift-gate. When purchasing lift-gate, the truck will pull up to the end of your driveway, and using the lift-gate will simply lift the pallet off the back of the truck and into the end of your driveway. When lift-gate is purchased you will only be required to have 1 person available to sign for the shipment.
In addition to the standard features that come with our easy-to-assemble kits, you also have the option to purchase a Deck and Painted Rail manufactured in our factory. Other options you can purchase for your playhouse include a floor kit (except 10’ x 12’), inside loft, chimney, and extra windows, shutters and flower boxes. Any additional items needed by the customer before assembling their playhouse can be purchased at any local home improvement store.
