Last week I hinted that we have started a new project in the garden. It's actually a secret, so don't tell the girls. We are buying them a Wendy House!
The wooden play house is going to be situated half way up our lawn backing onto our neighbours wire fence. We can't put it any further up because the cows in the field bordering our garden will eat it. Literally. The problem was a huge bush right where we want it to go. So Husband had to dig it out. The root was huge so it took a while and Little E was more than happy to be foreman on the excavation telling him what to do next.
This is the playhouse we are getting. It is a dinky 4x4 one but our small garden can't take anything bigger and it is fantastic value. It is shown in different colour designs. I love the stripey beach house design but we think we will keep the main body of the house wooden and then paint the door, window frames and roof, similar to the second image.That way it should be relatively easy to keep it looking smart each season plus it will blend in with our rural garden well. Inside I going to paint it all white to make it feel light and airy.
The next step is to level the ground and lay a slab base for the play house to sit on so watch this space!
PS. We had an audience during the dig proving our point about the cows!
