Awkard Spaces

Do you have a slope or an awkard corner that you would like to make more use out of?  Why not install a play structure.  At The Playhouse Company we are used to these challenges, give us a call to discuss your ideas.

Awkward Spaces

 We are not afraid of a challenge here at The Playhouse Company! Our playhouses can tackle slopes and fit into unused corners of gardens

The Playhouse Company builds each playhouse individually from scratch; we are not using prebuilt kits and merely adapting them. As such we are able to offer any size or shape of playhouse and be creative in the way we design them to accommodate that awkward corner or space

 A playhouse will need a 6 inch gap all around to allow for the roof overhang and allow air circulation around the building, but apart from that we can fully utilise all available space.

Top tips for awkward and or limited spaces

  • If space is limited, consider putting the playhouse on a platform effectively doubling your play space or providing storage
  • If you have a steep slope or uneven ground, it may be again that a platform is the answer.
  • Consider the shape of your playhouse; perhaps a hexagonal or octagonal shape will best suit the space available.
  • What about a ‘half’ playhouse in a tight corner or against a wall
  • Phone and challenge us!!!

We Are Unable To Accept New Commissions Presently

We are a small company, set up and run by Richard and Kay and supported by a skilled team of 4 who help build and deliver our projects.

Richard has recently had a health scare, and during the next few months of his recuperation we have decided, reluctantly, to limit the number of projects we take on and have decided to stop taking new commissions until December 2021.

Richard does all the design and manages the build and installation, and Kay is the voice you will speak to and help with advice and then making sure your project runs smoothly from inception to the children enjoying it in your garden. Over the past 30 years we have completed well over 1,000 projects, all to a greater or lesser extent custom designed. It is a great privilege to design and build playhouse and treehouses, and for us almost as much fun to design and build as the children have pleasure thereafter. We firmly believe that in order to design and build a great playhouse project you must love it just as much. We do love what we do and this makes it all the more difficult for us to pause enquiries, but health is paramount so makes this the only decision.

We assure all existing customers that your delivery obligations will be met in full and are always available for any queries about existing products.

If you would like to register an interest for a project in 2022, please just send us an email or give us a call and we will re-connect at the end of the year by which time Richard will be fully charged and ready to enjoy exciting new projects.

Thank you for your support
