Childrens wooden playhouse on an Island

Project code: (PHC080693)

A magical octagonal playhouse on an island.

An octagonal playhouse with a steep roof, giving the playhouse a really spacious feel.  

As this playhouse is on an island hidden amongst the trees and only reached via a boat, the steep roof and octagonal shape really add to the magical feel.  

The door has a diamond shape glazed cut out in it, and because the playhouse has four non opening rectangular windows in it is very light inside. 

Externally the roof is finished using wooden cedar shingles.

Richard & Kay Frost


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
