A first playhouse to start their independence into the world of play is provided with the Shire 4x4 Playhut.  Unlike other playhouses in this price bracket this comes with a floor and there's no compromising on the window as it's an opening window with joinery styled Georgian bars and a window stay for just the right temperature. There's styrene window panes for extra peace of mind.

Its solid timber door is fitted with a piano hinge as we want to ensure little fingers are kept safe.  The rounded framing provides extra safety as opposed to squared framing.

Playhouses should be safe and strong and with a 34mmx34mm frame this aspect is covered.

There's a floor included for extra insulation and stability.

Supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear easy to follow instructions.

Please Note: Picture shows how the playhouse would look like if painted, this product is not supplied painted.

Treatment: All Shire playhouses are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product (colour can vary from the picture shown). You must apply a water based top coat of your choice either before assembly or after assembly. This will protect the timber from weathering on your playhouse making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions.
