  • Command Post with Platform 1700 x 1700mm (6 x 6ft) (Front Width x Depth)£569.99


            Building on the excellent design of the Shire Command Post, this Tower version of the playhouse adds even more immersive fun by raising the children high above the garden, giving a brilliant vantage point to those holding down the fort inside, and a place to ambush those who leave the stronghold by hiding underneath. Ideal for ensuring hours of imaginative play, as children fight mock battles to take control of the Command Post Tower.

            This playhouse is well-designed for battle games, bringing to life their imagined wars by providing a stronghold around which to centre the fight. Two opening gun ports allow defence of the Command Post Tower Playhouse with water pistols or foam dart guns, while three fixed windows provide observation points to target the enemy from the safety of the fort. There is also a good-sized external platform with a slatted barrier to hide behind, and a strong wooden ladder for rapid entrance and exit to the Command Post Tower.

            The walls of this Shire Tower playhouse are constructed using high-quality planed softwood in a sturdy tongue and groove shiplap pattern, making the fort well-sealed from both the elements and invaders! The timber used is continental slow-grown wood, meaning a  tighter grain, extra strength and a longer life when compared to the fast-grown timber used on cheaper playhouses from other manufacturers. The floor is also built with tongue and groove boards, and the roof is made from Oriented Strand Board (OSB) with roofing felt included.

            Kids love rough battle games, but no one likes it when things end in tears. That's why we've incorporated important safety features into this playhouse to protect the children as they play. The three fixed windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass, and both opening ports, as well as the door, are fitted with safety hinges to prevent trapped fingers. So with no need to worry, now it's just up to the kids whether the enemy will be held at bay with foam or water, or allowed to retreat to safety!

            This Tower 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 Command Post 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 Command Post Tower 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.
