10 Inspiring Playhouses That Make Us Long to Be a Kid Again
Remember when playing house meant never making a mortgage payment or paying the electricity bill? How we long for the days of yore, when we wiled away countless afternoons in the playhouse we called home from dawn to dusk -- when all that mattered was stirring the leaf, twig and berry stew we cooked-up on the knee-high kitchen stove until mom and dad called us in for ‘real‘ dinner. Cut to present day and you won't believe your eyes when you behold these amazing playhouses we'd like to buy for our kids, and then curl up in for the day...or week. Here are ten diminutive dwellings that make us wish we were kids again.
1. Dreaming Spires Playhouse
Aside from being awe-inspiring in its natural beauty, designer Judith Neeham's Dreaming Spires playhouse is perhaps the most earth conscious playhouse in existence. Handwoven with highly renewable willow by Neeham in Surrey, England, the structure gradually degrades in about five years due to exposure to the elements, and may then be shredded and used for garden mulch, added to a compost bin, or used as kindling for building a fire.
