  • Shire Kitty Playhouse 5 x 5ft£355.00


            A cute and compact model, the Shire Kitty Playhouse is has a pretty cottage-style design, and is ideal for a child's first playhouse. It makes a great den, providing hours of endless fun, and it will look beautiful in your garden too!

            Coming with a large opening window and matching door to allow in plenty of air and light, the Kitty is fitted with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene window glazing, a safer alternative to glass, as well as coming with safety hinges on the door and window to protect little fingers, for added peace of mind. The 1ft veranda adds a beautiful finishing touch, giving children shade in the summer months and shelter during cooler parts of the year.

            The Shire Kitty Playhouse is made from a high-grade shiplap pine in a sturdy tongue and groove construction, meaning it is better sealed from the elements, as well as making it more aesthetically pleasing. The floor is also constructed from tongue and groove cladding for a more water resistant, longer-lasting build, and the roof is made from solid sheet Oriented Strand Board (OSB).

            This Shire playhouse is supplied with a dip-treated base coat as standard, with a top coat available as an option for a stronger and golden brown finish. The Kitty 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 Kitty 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.

            Upon Delivery
            Delivery is made by Shire the manufacturer. Delivery of this item is typically made by a 17 ton flat-bed (similar size to a council refuse lorry). Delivery is typically between 7am and 7pm. The delivery drivers are only insured to deliver to kerb side or driveway. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property. Deliveries are hand-balled off by the driver.

            We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.

            Installation option
            If you are choosing the installation option after placing your order you’ll be contacted within 5 working days by Shire the manufacturer either by a text message or automated telephone message (the latter if a mobile number is not supplied). This message will supply you with the name of the website to go on to where you will be required to accept the terms and conditions for assembly. Any delay in accepting these terms and conditions may affect your timescale. Once you have accepted these terms and conditions you will be contacted during the timescale with a date for the delivery/assembly of your order. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 15-25 working days. This may take longer during seasonal periods. Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden, 18" clearance all around the building and a firm and level base. Shire's installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.


            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Shire Playhouses are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
