  • 7 x 6 (2.09m x 1.79m) Shire Crib Playhouse£884.99


            The 7 x 6 Shire Crib Two Storey Playhouse stands apart from the crowd when compared to many children's playhouses; packed with many brilliant design features that are outlined in full below, the Crib Playhouse 'real house' feel is highly appealing to children. Its safety features, like shatterproof styrene and smooth-planed timber, ensure adults love it too.


            The Crib's spacious ground floor offers plenty of room for the imagination to run wild, and an additional upper floor that can be accessed by ladder gives this playhouse plenty of space for children to play. A side door is a great alternative way of entering the playhouse, making it easy to wheel toy cars into their own garage.

            Safety is always prioritised when it comes to the design of the Shire Crib Playhouse. All windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly and shatter-resistant styrene, a clear material that is a safe alternative to traditional glass. The single door and two opening windows are also fitted with safety hinges to keep little fingers safe.

            It may not be a full-sized garden building, but this playhouse features a high-quality timber cladding that wouldn't be out of place in high-end workshops or summerhouses. As with many of Shire's garden buildings, this playhouse uses a shiplap tongue and groove construction for its walls. The timber used has been sustainably sourced (FSC certified) and dip treated prior to delivery for protection against rot while in transit. A similarly robust tongue and groove panelling is used in the floor and roof due to its strength and water-resistance. Covering the roof is a mineral roofing felt, giving extra protection from rainfall so that the playhouse interior remains a fun and comfortable space to play in. Those interested in owning a more durable and rustic playhouse will appreciate the wall upgrade option for pine logs.

            Many decorative elements give the 7 x 6 Shire Crib Two Storey Playhouse the finishing touches it needs to be a charming and perpetually entertaining play area for children. For example, decorative shutters on the upper window make an attractive impression, as does the diamond-shaped window in the single door. The generous overhang of the asymmetrical roof provides some shelter to the front of the playhouse and allows for the inclusion of a veranda area with railings. This can be a fun place to keep toys outdoors, add seating, or bright plants.

            Additional Information

            The Shire Crib Playhouse is supplied flat-packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price, with easy-to-follow instructions, though you can choose to add professional assembly by dedicated builders if desired. If assembling yourself, we recommend receiving help from at least one extra person.

            The playhouse is supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water-based industrial product to help protect against weathering before your playhouse is assembled. It will not be pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor it to your children's favourite colours. We offer a range of Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish, available in many natural stains and colours. This is ideal for personalising the look of your playhouse, and is a great first step in keeping to the care instructions for your 10-year anti-rot guarantee.

            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.
