Lilliput's Signature "Attention To Detail"

I love when clients invite us into their world by sharing photos and details of their own homes.  
Normally, clients ask if we can paint the playhouse in similar (or the same) paint colors as the family home. "Absolutely," I assure them.  
Often, clients ask if we can change the dimensions of the playhouse.  "No problem," I reply. 
In a recent conversation with a client, the woman asked about changing the paint colors and the dimensions of the playhouse; she needed a slightly smaller width on the Princess Cottage to fit her yard.  I diligently made my notes and offered to provide her with a CAD rendering of her playhouse, to make sure we had all the details correct. 

Then, she asked if we could duplicate the festoons over her windows and door.  I admit, I was stumped.  First, I had to figure out what a "festoon" was!  

     fes·toon (noun)

     1.  a string or chain of flowers, foliage, ribbon, etc., suspended in a curve between two points.
     2.  a decorative representation of this, as in architectural work or on pottery.
     3.  a fabric suspended, draped, and bound at intervals to form graceful loops or scalloped folds.
I consulted with my boss, Steve, and our Production Manager, Ron (who happens to also be a genius on the CNC router).  "Sure," was their response (I think they already knew what a festoon was).  
We presented her with this sample:

She was thrilled.  "Perfect!" she cried.  
 And so, this adorable playhouse came to be:
Oh yeah.  And note the "wrought iron grill" Ron added to her front door.  
Attention-to-detail is just one of the many benefits you receive with every Lilliput play home, standard or custom.

The "WOW!" That Lasts A Lifetime

Can't you just hear the squeals of delight when she saw her new Cotton Candy Manor?

Or see that little guy opening the front door of his new Lil' Raskal's Lookout, peering in with awe and amazement?

Childhood races by.  No one knows that better than us adults! 

I love when clients share stories of their own excitement when presenting their children (or grandchildren) with a Lilliput play home.
  • A grandmom actually slept outside in the playhouse the night before her grandchildren were going to see their playhouse for the first time;
  • A mom told me she's had a photo of our Storybook Bungalow on her refrigerator ever since she found out she was pregnant with their first child...yesterday she purchased it to celebrate her daughter's 3rd birthday this spring.  I can only imagine that party;
  • The older sister who is passing her children's playhouse down to her younger sister's growing family.
The stories go on and on.  Families who not only cherish, but celebrate, the joy and magic of childhood.

Let Lilliput Play Homes turn your dreams into their squeals of delight.  Cherish those precious childhood years for a lifetime.
