Under the Stairs Playhouse

A Playhouse Under the Stairs for the Grand babies! A really fun space :) A fun project for me to build ... It lets the creative thoughts take shape. I had the perfect space for a playhouse under the stairs in the basement and thought that since we live in a cold climate it might be good to have an indoor play space. Inside I put down carpet to keep that area warmer since it is on the cement floor. I also installed bead board, chair rail and plywood with wall paper on it. I didn't use any plans from this amazing site but did see other plans that inspired me! I will be using some plans on this site soon. Look for a Murphy Bed soon from me :)

That is an incredible play space. We have a one story house, but now I want to install some stairs!

What an impressive project! It looks easy to build as well, because the stairs serve as a limit guide for the construction. I'm thinking of trying this for my daughter, use it as a toy deposit. The problem is that I have a straight staircase, so the end result might be a bit different from this. I'm really attached to this look, it's like an unreal and unique little house.
