3 Tips for Choosing a Children's Playhouse

You've just decided to treat your children & family to the fun of an upscale children's playhouse and are beginning your research. Great! But what features should you look for?

Here at Lilliput Play Homes, we know playhouses. We've built and shipped playhouses all over the world. When we build a children's playhouse, we build it to last. Asking these three questions from any vendors will help you on your search for the perfect playhouse.

What is the playhouse made out of?
Our playhouses are made of durable PVC, which is long-lasting and easy to clean, providing years of beauty and protection from wear and tear compared to a wooden playhouse.

Do I need a foundation for my playhouse?
Some playhouses on the market may require a poured concrete foundation. Our playhouses come with a wooden base much like that of a house deck. It is constructed of a 2x4 frame with decking. The base should be set on small concrete pads or stepping stones which are not provided but available at most building centers. One is needed for each corner. A small percentage of customers pour a concrete pad as a foundation. This is not necessary but does provide a more permanent installation.

How long until I receive my playhouse?

Get a full build and shipping estimate from your chosen vendor. Our lead time varies with the season and the playhouse model. Generally processing requires 2-4 weeks plus shipping. The months of May, June and July may require additional time. If a specific date is requested which is earlier than the specified lead time, please check with Lilliput. We can sometimes accommodate rush orders.
