My Daughter, Jen, asked for a playhouse for her daughter’s 2nd birthday.
Well surprised she will be when we deliver it Thursday, a few months early…. but who cares.

The little girl in the play house is my other grand daughter, Chloe. She was over last night testing it out for her cousin Isabella.

The picture of the two girls are my grand daughters… Isabella on the left, Chloe on the right.

It’s great being a Grandpa.

The toughest part will be getting it over their back yard fence and setting it in place.

Pizza for everyone that shows up to assist….Let’s shoot for 5:15.

That is a really nice playhouse. But like Dennis said, you will need to
build one more grandpa.

I made a playhouse for my kids when living in Shreveport. We found some windows cheap. My neighbor asked if we were going a local furniture store for furniture. I know of a family that duplicated their house in miniature for a playhouse, brick with columns out from, complete with electricity, fireplace, and central heat and air.
