Providing hours of fun for children of all ages and sizes, the 8 x 7 Double Storey Garage Playhouse from Mercia is one of the most spacious playhouses on the market. The interior boasts plenty of room to play, not to mention buckets of headroom which will help to prevent bumped heads on the ceiling and provides freedom for young imaginations. The high ceilings in combination with a good-sized single door even make access for adults easy, so you can join in the fun yourself or retrieve your little ones at the end of the day’s activities.

With two levels inside, children can climb the ladder to create a den upstairs, or take advantage of the sizeable downstairs for excitement with their toys. They will even have a choice of ways to get inside their playhouse, with a larger single door and double garage doors, which are ideal for scooters, tricycles or a racing car. Double windows downstairs and two more upstairs ensure the inside is nice and bright during the daytime and afford plenty of opportunity for kids to spot incoming adults and make sure they are on best behaviour.

The Double Storey Garage has a number of features that show its quality and make it safe for children. This building has an EN71 Safety Certificate for your peace of mind. All windows are glazed in child-friendly, shatterproof styrene. The roof and floor are made from a durable solid sheet board, capable of withstanding the demands of playtime. 12mm shiplap walls keep the interior nicely sealed from the elements, keeping out draughts and the rain. Finally, all doors on Mercia playhouses feature a small gap around the outside to help prevent children’s fingers getting trapped.

Feel free to email us to discuss our playhouses, or better still, give us a call so we can find the perfect one to suit your needs and answer any queries you may have. Alternatively, why not visit us at our Brookfields Garden Centre showsite near Nottingham? Here, you can sit down with one of our helpful advisors who can guide you through your order or offer advice on the rest of our range of products.

Extra Details about your Order

This playhouse is supplied pre-treated with a base coat for protection during manufacture and transit, and colour may vary slightly from images shown. It will not be pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor to the children's desires.

Many manufacturers recommend 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. Following the aftercare guidelines in the instructions will ensure the 10 year anti-rot guarantee with the playhouse remains valid.

The buildings are dressed for display purposes; we don't supply any accessories or shelves featured within the product images.

Playhouses are suitable for domestic use only.
