It arrived in this massive box. The hubster and I cracked into it, laid out the pieces and instructions, and got to work.
While it wasn't terribly difficult to put together, I do have a few pointers for you. First, this is something that can be put together by one person but it's easier with two. Also, the hubster and I opted not to use a power drill but decided that we probably should have when it was all said and done. Now, having said all that, I thought the overall process was easy to follow and the playhouse was pretty simple to put together.
Here is our finished product from the front (note the working doorbell and flower planter on the front)
and from the back.
I absolutely love the character in this Country Cottage. I refer to is as "the hobbit house" because I think it looks like something out of a story book. Beside the "cute factor", though, I appreciate the big windows that let in a lot of light and the amount of space inside. I can easily hop in and play with Alex. Also, we can add some of his chairs in there and still have plenty of room.
Alex can literally run circles in this house. :)
Or he can stop and look/listen for trains passing by.
And of course, he MUST make a phone call on his battery powered phone to tell someone that he heard a train.
This old-world inspired cottage brings a charming look into today's backyard landscapes. Made in USA of US and imported parts. Phone and doorbell made in China.
