Description

The 4 x 4 Shire Bunny is a simple yet charming playhouse that looks great in your child's favourite colours. With details like roof finials, four-paned windows, and a decorative door handle, this playhouse sets the imagination alight and keeps children entertained for many dreamy afternoons. A 4 x 4 footprint means this playhouse will fit snugly into almost any garden, and the shiplap timber cladding gives it a feeling of quality that goes well beyond its price. And with many design choices that make the Shire Bunny safer for use by children, any concerned adults will find just as much to love in this playhouse.

Features

As with all playhouses sold by elbec, the 4 x 4 Shire Bunny Playhouse has been developed in accordance with European safety standards (EN71) and features many details to help protect those playing inside. The two windows - one in the door and another beside it which can be opened - are each glazed with styrene. This transparent material allows plenty of light into the playhouse and is virtually shatterproof. Unlike traditional glass, this will not break into potentially dangerous shards that can cause injury. Both the opening window and the single door also feature safety hinges to keep small fingers away from moving parts.

The basis of the Shire Bunny Playhouse's quality is found in its wall cladding. This 12mm shiplap cladding is made up of horizontal boards that fit tightly together in a 'tongue and groove' construction. The timber used is a sustainably sourced pine wood that has been pre-treated with a base coat as standard to protect the timber from rot and wear during transit and assembly. However, if you would like to start with a stronger degree of protection against the elements, select the top coat treatment option to receive a playhouse with a tougher protective treatment in a golden brown colour.

Because this playhouse comes in natural wood colours, many love to personalise their playhouse with a colourful wood paint. In this sense, the Shire Bunny Playhouse is an excellent blank canvas to tailor to your child's favourite colours. When it comes to changing the look of your playhouse while protecting the timber from rot and damage, we recommend Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish, available to order in many colours through elbec.

This playhouse is supplied flat-packed for easier handling and assembly. All fittings and parts are included in the delivery, along with detailed instructions so that you can put together the playhouse at home. We strongly advise putting your playhouse together with at least one other person, and you are likely to have a smoother experience if already familiar with similar practical projects. If this doesn't sound to your liking, you can always take advantage of our assembly service where dedicated builders will construct your playhouse on the customer's prepared base.
