Make the ultimate playhouse experience for your children with the Little Cottage 4x6 ft. Victorian Wood Playhouse. This easy-to-assemble house is uniquely designed for fun, imaginative play, with a beautiful blend of real-life features like working Plexiglass windows, two flowerboxes, and window shutters. Sized at approximately 6W x 4D x 6H feet, this playhouse will grow with your child and will be a memorable part of childhood.
The Victorian-inspired design of this cottage appears in every detail, from the painted heart-shaped Plexiglass window in front, to the gingerbread trim, Dutch doors, and traditional spindle deck (optional). The house includes two working windows, complete with safety glass and screens, each measuring 12 x 18 inches. A child's Dutch door opens on the front of the house and measures 16W x 35H inches; an adult Dutch door on the side measures 16W x 47H inches. White aluminum trim for the outside corners is included, and all trim and siding is pre-primed and ready for you to paint whatever color you choose.
Choose from a variety of configurations based on availability:
-Playhouse (plus floor kit) only
-Playhouse plus floor kit, plus outside deck and rail
-Playhouse plus floor kit, deck and rail, and chimney (as shown)
Your playhouse arrives complete with wood wall and truss framing, high-quality siding and trim pre-fastened to wall panels, and pre-cut, paneled sections. Hardware is also included.
This playhouse is built from LP Smart Side, which is an environmentally friendly, renewable material with low environmental impact. Treated with SmartGuard, which uses zinc borates to resist rot and mold, LP Smart Side is on the cutting edge of building technology today, and is a durable and safe alternative that ensures years of enjoyment from your playhouse. Thanks to the durability of this material, LP offers a 50-year limited warranty.
Shingles, dripedge (roof edging), and paint are not included but are available at any local hardware store. If you choose the configuration that includes the deck, you will also have to supply three 4 x 4-foot posts for under-floor support.
About The Little Cottage Company
Nestled in the heart of Ohio's Amish country, The Little Cottage Company resides in a quaint, slow-paced setting where old-fashioned craftsmanship and attention to detail have never gone out of style. Our experienced carpenters and skilled designers take great pride in creating top-quality, pre-built models and Do-It-Yourself kits of playhouses, storage sheds, and more.
Our DIY playhouse kits are designed for easy assembly. Unless otherwise noted, they should require an average of two adults working four to eight hours to complete. Panelized walls, pre-cut pieces, and alphabetized labels help make the process simple, as does the downloadable full-color instruction manual (link provided with your purchase).
When assembling your playhouse, please make sure to choose a level area for installation. We recommend an area that is covered in crushed stone, patio block, or concrete, in order to form a base for the playhouse. However, because the playhouse bases are made from treated lumber, they can be placed directly on the ground. If you do decide to prepare a base for your playhouse, make sure it measures 1 foot wider than the house itself on all sides.
If you are interested in moving your playhouse to another location in the future, you should purchase and install 4 x 4 runners before completing assembly. Once runners are in place, the playhouse can be moved by your local tow truck company with the use of a flatbed and a winch. If you are simply moving the playhouse across the yard, you can do so with heavy wall PVC piping. Call Little Cottage Co. at 330-893-4212 for more information and assistance.
