Swiss Chalet

Wow!  Isn't this gorgeous!  Russell Bowlby of Flights of Fantasy created this beautiful storybook playhouse for a businessman's two very lucky children.  The playhouse was modeled after the family's chalet in foothills of the Swiss Alps...doesn't that just sound picture perfect!  Not only is this timber structure covered with beautifully crafted woodwork, it's also fully equipped with a mini kitchen, TV,  and underfloor heating.  You may think heated floors are a bit excessive, but when designing a playhouse for such extreme weather conditions heated floors, double glazed windows, and insulated walls are a must.  This two story playhouse also has four beds!  I wouldn't mind staying there!  I don't have interior pictures of this one yet, but there are several interior shots of Bowlby's other designs on his site.  He also has a nice collection of playhouse furniture that's worth looking at.
