I was completely surprised when I found this a-frame playhouse from the Family Circle DO-IT-YOURSELF Encyclopedia Volume 15, 1974 on flickr. Cabins of this type were very popular, so why shouldn't there be a playhouse! It's easy to see where an a-frame structure get it's name. If you look closely at the front of the playhouse you can see how the structure resembles an A. This is a very practical straightforward way to build a play space...basically it's a roof on a platform. If you're looking for a weekend project try this (and send me pictures). For those of you who need plans, I'm working on it. I just love these old images.
