Playhouse Style: The Club House
The humble hand built club house has become an icon recognized by all. It appears everywhere from back yards to books. This style, often made from reclaimed odds and ends, has a crude hand built feel. Function overpowers aesthetics resulting in a box shape with rustic details. Despite its rough appearance, it is the perfect setting for exclusive secret meetings. Details such as peep holes, secret trap doors, and "keep out" signage are necessary due to the high level of security and privacy this playhouse requires. It's simplified construction and low cost make it a popular choice for DIY projects.
