When I was a kid my parents built us a ‘dolls house’ which soon doubled for bike storage and then later for just about everything else.
We made our own cubby houses a few times but never like these works of art. I guess I lean toward basic structures so that children can add their own flavour and use imagination but these are still amazing!
This Hobbit Hole cubby can be made following these instructions at eHow
Make it Now
I love this idea because its not permanent and its easy. Involve your little one in the construction. A candle near the material totally freaks me out … I hope its an LED lookalike. Don’t put electricity or fire in your cloth cubby … please 🙂 Found at http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/inspiration-backyard-escapes-144588
Traditional (with the works)
This one is more of a standard format but I love all the thought that has gone into the activities possible … both physical and imaginative. Found at http://www.playhousesandclimbingframes.co.uk/made-to-measure/
In The Garden
This one is simple but made cool by being in the vegetation and also with the material to soften the look. Found at http://pithandvigor.com/shop-for-garden-products/treehouses/my-treehouse-inspiration/
Don’t let living in an apartment or not having a yard put you off. Found at http://www.houseofturquoise.com/2013/09/natasha-smith-photography.html
Made almost entirely from pallets this is recycling and looks great. Found at http://thepalletproject.blogspot.ca/2010/06/tree-hut.html
Better Than My House!
This one is over the top incredible with a zip-line … what!? Found at http://adoreyourplace.com/2013/04/09/treehouse-treasure-2/

Not Just For The Kids
Who says the outdoor cubby has to be only for the kids … I love that this is on wheels and that the front keeps it waterproof. Found at http://www.relaxshacks.blogspot.nl/2014/07/a-tiny-housestudy-pod-for-nyu.html
Don’t forget the pooch … they need a house with a viewing platform too lol …. Found at http://www.boredpanda.com/pet-furniture-ideas/
