I made this playhouse this Spring for my daughters. It took about 4 months of evenings and some very full weekends,but except for some small details it is finally done! It is modeled after the Jungle Cruise building in Disneyland.
Like the Jungle Cruise,the siding is made of chanelled wood (cedar in my case) and bevelled siding. The pickets on the porch are replicas of the Jungle Cruises' upper left balcony that I patterned in my computer,then printed up full size to make a paper template.
The sign was also designed in my computer first,then a pattern was made,cutout,and spray painted.
The two porch post are newel posts for a hand railing, and not really for a porch,but the scale of the playhouse allowed me to use them.
The house is 8' x 6' with a 3' front porch,for a total size of 8' x 9'. The porch roof is angled just slightly for water run off. You do need to duck a bit as an adult stepping onto the porch and going through the door.Once inside it is roomy and high
Any more details,just ask!

Well enjoy the photos,and I welcome any comments or questions.
