Our Backyard Playhouse. Brad thought this up and didn’t write anything down. ? Suffice it to say…all supplies can be found at your local hardware store!  All I asked was for a platform the kids could pretend on. This thing has motion activated A/C. And a TV. And a Roku. So basically, he took my platform idea and threw it out the window. But I’m okay with it.

This house took us 6 months to complete. But Brad took every chance he could to involve the boys along the way. He paid such close attention to detail. Made me excited to build a real house one day.


It really was like building a miniature house…with electricity, a/c (a must for the Texas summer heat). The only thing we’re missing is a water line. We wanted it tall enough for Mom and Dad to be in there without crouching but then we realized we were wasting a lot of space. So the loft was a pleasant afterthought. That’s where our kids hangout and watch their shows on the Roku My favorite part of the playhouse is the vintage locker baskets on the wall. Who would’ve known the same baskets we used in junior high PE would be so popular 25 years later?? I would’ve kept mine! I paid about $30 each for these at an antique store in town. ? And of course I channeled my inner Joanna Gaines and used metal pipes for the railing, ladder, and desk leg. One note here-pipes (and those dang flanges) are way more expensive than you think they should be.

Inside the playhouse. Rug/Pillows from Target, metal chairs from local furniture store in Austin. Sign made with vinyl stencil. Crayon/Marker holder from Ikea. Bookshelves are plastic gutters from Lowe’s. Pallet wood lining the ceiling is from a local pallet yard. Lighting from the hardware store Industrial piping and all wood from the hardware store. Is it weird that I covet those planked walls in there? I want them in my real house. We joke that the playhouse is nicer than our real house. And it kinda is.


We did a few updates to the playhouse when we moved to our new home! It had to match ;). See the current playhouse HERE.
