Has anyone bought their child a

Pre-made playhouse? We found on yesterday that is log cabin it was $2400 and my mom was going to buy it but I told her to wait. Is that a good price? It is all custom made and very large with a loft. Has anyone else bought one? How much did you spend?

  • My kids would have loved one like that. We built a much smaller version than that and had almost $500 wrapped up in it by the time we were finished with it. That sounds like a decent price considering it is already made. You could do it yourself but.....things around my house tend to get started and then never finished. Post pics of it - it sounds awesome!

  • How old is your child and how crafty is your family? We had leftover wood from other random projects and my father and son built one themselves. Now it wasn't fancy with lofts and what not, but it had windows and a working door, a decorative chimney and they painted it to look like a barn. My son had so much fun helping make it That was 4 years ago and now he has outgrown it, but the younger kids use it now and he still brags about building it!
