Children love to have a place of their own to play, and wooden playhouses are the perfect way to give the kids that first bit of independence while still keeping them safe. The sturdy tongue and groove construction used throughout this building provides a robust playhouse that allows the little ones plenty of freedom to let their imaginations run wild, and gives adults the peace of mind to sit back and relax while they do. Although with the robust framework used, you could even join in the fun yourself!

Shire is known for their high-quality products, and the Lookout Playhouse is no different. Made from high-grade planed softwood in a tongue and groove construction throughout, the walls, roof and floor are all equally strong and built to withstand the elements. The elevation of the main platform gives what every small child loves - the sensation of being high up in the sky with the birds and trees - and the large openings provide windows and a door without the added risk of glazing or hinges, so there's no need to worry.

This playhouse is supplied with a dip-treated base coat as standard, and a top coat is available as an optional extra for a stronger, golden brown finish. The Shire Lookout Playhouse does not come pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor to the children's desires. The manufacturer recommends applying a water-based top coat of your choice, preventing the timber from weathering and therefore making the playhouse last longer. We offer a range of Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish treatments, available in a number of natural stains and colours, which is ideal for protecting your playhouse.

The Shire Lookout Playhouse is supplied flat-packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, though you can choose to add assembly if desired.
