This 8'X6'-6" playhouse was constructed for my daughters' daycare centre, on a budget.  All the windows (wood and plexi) and the door were constructed on site.  There is over 6' of clearance inside, but the door was made 'kid size' to deter possible lawnmower storage!  Siding is beveled cedar, the trim 1X4 combface.  Interior finishing includes wainscotting with chair rail, and linoleum on the floor for easy clean-up.  The kids are already planning their housewarming party.
