The Chalet


This location presented us with an interesting challenge. The small yard had a patch of grass agasint a fenced-in hillside. The ownes wanted to keep the grassy area clear. The house had to be big enough to accomodate two very active little girls and a tall grandpa.
We sank posts into the hillside and erected a platform spanning the fence. We built a stairway up to an 8'W x 2'D porch, with a picnic table and bench below it. The 8'W x 6'D x 8'H playhouse has 6 screened, working safety glass windows and shutters. It also has an oversized door and cover.

Note: Please keep in mind, this is not a standard model that you can order as-is for a specific price. It is just an example of a playhouse we have built for one of our customers. It is here to give you an idea as to what we do, and as a potential starting point. We will work with you to design the right playhouse for you and your family.

    Delivery & Assembly

    Folk Art Playhouses will deliver and assemble your playhouse for you within a 50 mile radius of Sherman Oaks, California. We will consider longer distances on a case-by-case basis.


    A level hard surface is required for proper installation. A cement pad is preferable. Other acceptable choices include stepping stones, a wooden deck or gravel over hard-packed earth. Whichever surface you choose, it should extend an extra 6" beyond the playhouse dimensions in each direction.

    This must be taken care of prior to playhouse installation. You can have it done by a local handyman, or if we are doing the playhouse installation we can do this for you. Please let us know if you would like this included in your quote.
