Chidrens Treehouse with Activities
A treehouse situated on a raised platform provides lots of scope for fun activity accessories, as well as a hanging swing seat as a much needed rest area.
This raised platform stands at 4ft high and is accessed via a set of stairs from the ground.
The treehouse itself is set in the right hand corner of the platform, with the door on the left hand side as you look at the tree house from the staircase. The door is an ever popular stable door which allows the sections of the door to open independently.
There is a diamond shape cut out in the top section of the door and a letterbox in the lower section. A doorbell next to the door provides a special sense of ownership of the playhouse, as visiting adults must request permission to enter the playhouse.
Above the door there is a diamond shaped window and facing you as you climb the stairs are 2 non-opening windows; these windows have window boxes underneath them and are a lovely way to encourage children to take an interest in gardening.
The roof has wooden cedar shingles on it and is then finished with a scalloped ridge and facia board.
Internally the playhouse is lined with plywood, making it easy for you decorate if you wish to. There is also a folding table inside but most exciting of all there is a trapdoor with rope ladder leading to the ground.
The platform extends 2ft in front and to the left hand side of the playhouse and provides an additional external play area as well as providing space for a slide to be positioned parallel to the access staircase.
The stairs and platform are all protected by balustrade rails.
On the left hand end of the platform there is a scramble net which gives children another area of play. A pulley system fitted to the platform allows children to pass supplies up and down and on the right hand end of the platform there is a climbing wall which leads up to the platform.
Underneath the platform there is a hanging swing seat which gives children somewhere to sit and take a break from all the exhausting play.
