Choosing a Customized Playhouse

A kid’s playhouse is an exciting purchase for everyone in the family. Every playhouse is a custom order, and the selection of the style, color, and size is a simple, fun process for the family. At Recreation Unlimited, our sheds are built locally in Indiana by the Amish. The quality craftsmanship used is reflected in the construction of the playhouses.

3 Steps to Choosing a Customized Playhouse

Step 1 – Location & Size

It is important to evaluate the area available to place the playhouse. Factors to consider when sizing up your site:

  • A level site
  • You want an open area, clear of trees or low branches
  • A good drainage area
  • A convenient access for delivery, we likely need to be able to back a flatbed truck into the space to drop off the playhouse. If this is not possible, there are build on site options available for an additional charge.

After considering all the above factors, the size can then be determined. The range of sizes can be as small as a 8’X6’, to as large as 12’X24’ . Additionally, site preparation and building permits are important in preparing for your playhouse delivery.

Step 2 – Style
