Meet the Team

The Office Team

We aim to provide a friendly and professional service to all our customers.  We are here to help at all stages of your playhouse purchase; from your initial contact with us, the design process and through to delivery and installation, we will be on hand to answer any questions and provide clarification for anything that you are unsure about.  Just call us on 01544 387100.

The Production Team

We have a team of 16 skilled wood-workers in our workshops, who manufacture and paint all our products.  We are keen to make effective use of current technology where applicable;  However our emphasis as a business is on skilled people building quality, bespoke, hand built products and ensuring that carpentry skills are kept alive and valued.

Richard Frost – CEO

Moving from a career in Supermarket Management, I started The Playhouse Company with my wife Kay, in 2001.   Initially inspired by the desire to provide a wooden playhouse for our children this then evolved into a business idea, but I maintain my core beliefs in wanting to provide innovative design and quality workmanship, alongside excellent customer service.  I still design all our Playhouses, but the best part of the job is still seeing the excitement on children’s faces when they see their new play house and if I were ever to tire of this feeling, then it would be time for me to find a new venture in life!

Kay Frost - Director

Having a background of working with pre-school children, Kay understands the importance of these formative years and believes passionately in providing “child only” spaces.  These spaces allow children to express themselves and explore their worlds, by letting their creativity and imagination flow, while still of course ensuring that children are safe from harm.   She is still very much involved in the day to day tasks of running the business and undertakes the company’s H.R. work and the maintenance of our website

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
