Our DIY playhouse kits can be built by DIY handyman and parents alike! In addition to saving on your shipping costs (compared to a pre-built playhouse), our pre-cut, pre-primed, ready-to-assemble kits make it easy to build a memory for your child that will last a lifetime. We have had people tell us how excited the kids were when the parents were assembling the playhouse kit. The kids get to see their parents creating and building, leaving a lasting memory for the child!
When your DIY panelized kit arrives there will be an envelope inside containing layouts and an instruction manual for your specific product. Assembly time will take 2 adults approximately 4-8 hours, depending on the size of the playhouse and skill level. Sara's Victorian Mansion kits will take longer. With the exception of the roof, the kit comes with panels which are alphabetized for easy assembly. All you need to do is fasten the panels with screws!
