Choices you will love, specifications you can trust

When it comes to the quality of our Playhouses we don't care for compromise.  We use the highest quality of materials and every method we use to build a Playhouse is carried out to a high standard.  All they choices we offer to make your playhouse just right for you and your children are not at the expense of quality.

We have completed hundreds of made to measure playhouses, that are designed and built to match the inspiration of our customers (and their children!). Often customers take elements of more than one playhouse project they see on the site to create the ‘dream' playhouse. There are an infinite number of possibilities.


Precision building of our products

With our playhouses you have great scope to choose some of the underlying build specification, including;

  • The type of roof (either mineral felt shingle, felt shingles, cedar shingles or artificial slate - all of them nice, just a question of what you prefer)
  • The overall build specification with 2 options available (mainly to decide on the level of weather protection, insulation and finish you prefer).
  • Two choices of windows, opening or non opening 
  • Various window designs available
  • Doors are available as a standard one piece or a stable, with various out shapes
  • Your choice of wood treatment and colours to complement your design.

The designs are translated from sketches into a detailed beautiful structure.  We place great emphasis on attention to detail and finish. Doors and windows open and close safely and smoothly.  There are never any rough edges.

A lot goes in to our playhouses. And the most important is care.

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
