Teddy Bears Cottage
Pedalling 4 Paddy

In this blog we're championing the brilliant efforts of the Pedalling 4 Paddy team who are currently cycling their way down from John O'Groats to Lands End.

Corner Playhouse

This week we've been working hard on our website, as whenever we complete a playhouse project we aim to get all the details of it online within a couple of week. However, due to a seriously busy couple of months we had amassed a backlog of around thirty playhouses that needed to be uploaded.

Double Platform

The Summer holiday countdown is on! So that means there's six weeks until;

Garden Treehouse

Typically, when a child sees their new playhouse for the first time they will immediately go in the door and close it behind them ... Then, there's often a short pause before the door is flung back open and a happy child appears.

Hanging Swing Seat

This week we've sadly said goodbye to Ben who has returned to university after spending three weeks with us over the Easter holidays - think he's suddenly realised just how much revision he has to do with his exams only weeks away! We wish him the best of luck and look forward to having him back with us over the summer, plus we'll be getting involved with this blog ... watch this space!

Fairytale Castle

We're getting into Royal Wedding celebrations here at The Playhouse Company. Kay (our director) is particularly excited having camped out opposite Buckingham Palace for the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana.

Twin Towers

It's certainly shaping up to be a great Easter with the fantastic weather hopefully here to stay! Alas, we must spare a thought for poor Tom (our production director), who hoping for some sun took a well earned break and headed with his family to Seville - only to be met with thunderstorms while we're bask in the sunshine here!

After weeks of eager anticipation our new website is finally live and there has been a great deal of excitement here at The Playhouse Company. The brand new site heralds the launch of our three new brilliant ranges – Go Play! Choice and You Design.

Richard & Kay Frost

Important

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
