Assembly can take as little as a day depending on how much help you have. The kits are shipped as panels that are pre-assembled, primed, and ready for painting in your choice of colors. The siding is pre-fastened onto wall panels as is the unique gingerbread trim that helps define the character of the playhouse.

The customer is responsible for providing shingles, paint, and the drip edge, all of which are readily available at your local home center. This allows you to customize the Gingerbread Playhouse. A variety of options are also available that further enhance the appearance and usability of the playhouse.  Two working windows are included that use tempered safety glass. Entry is easy with two doors, one for children and one adult-sized door on the side.

Gingerbread Playhouse kits are roughly 8’ high and come in three sizes.
