* Required Fields



The Cubby Kids Playhouse is a charming building that will give continued pleasure to your children for many years.  The Cubby is light and airy with its opening windows either side of the door and diamond shaped glazed door which adds an extra little peep hole for fun.

This timber playhouse has been manufactured from smooth planed whitewood pine from sustainable forests. It is supplied flat packed for ease of handling and complete with felt, fixings, glazing and comprehensive instructions. The playhouse will have been given an industry standard base coat for protection in transit but to ensure years of enjoyment from your playhouse a further weatherproofing topcoat will need to be applied within six weeks of assembly.

For anyone wishing to simply admire their playhouse rather than building and painting it we offer a painting/weatherproofing and installation service which can be chosen from the drop down selection boxes above.


The Shire Playhouses are manufactured with 35 x 35mm framing. They come with 12mm thick tongue & groove cladding on the walls and floor, with an 11mm solid sheet OSB roof. A single door is supplied with a black iron pull handle and styrene windows are supplied as standard. You are also able to add window boxes using the drop downs above.

Preservative/Painting Option

All playhouses in the Shire garden building range are supplied pre-treated inside and out with a quality, water-based, non-toxic, anti-fungicidal base coat. This ensures that your garden building is protected in transit and is ready to accept any preservative colour of your choice. The building shown above has been painted for photographic purposes only. You may decide to have your playhouse treated at the factory with a protective topcoat to ensure an even application. Simply select this in the drop down above.

Factory Painting

We are delighted to offer you a painted option on the whole range of Shire playhouses (Platforms, ballustrade and facias are not included in the painting option). We may not be able to match the image shown, please phone to discuss. This will be performed in the factory using Cuprinol shades as shown below. All you need to do is choose the additional painted option from the drop down menus above and select a colour from below. Once you've decided on your colour choice simply select your colour choice using the drop down above. Your chosen colour will be used for the main body of the playhouse and any trim will be painted cream.

DIY Assembly

Our playhouses are supplied in a flat-pack modular design allowing for easy transportation through your house or garage. They are designed for home assembly and come with comprehensive build instructions. No professional experience is necessary. Please click here to view the build instructions for this playhouse. Please note: These assembly instructions can change at any time without notice.

Professional Assembly

If you have any concerns about building your playhouse we are happy to offer a build service for all our Shire playhouses. So if your life is just a little too busy to spend time building a playhouse at the weekend or you just feel that you would prefer to leave it to the professionals; then why not book them in to do the job by selecting the option from the drop down menu above. All they require is clear access and a suitably prepared, firm, level site to be ready when the installers arrive. Please click here to view the Guide to Preparing a Base.

General Information

All information given has been supplied by the manufacturer, and is as accurate as possible. We recommend that you install the building on a solid, free-draining base (please see pdf above for a Guide to Preparing a Base), with at least 60cm free space all around for maintenance. You should treat all sections with a high quality, spirit-based preservative prior to assembly, and subsequently every year in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. Please ensure that regular general maintenance is carried out on all moving parts, and that the roofing felt is regularly inspected, and replaced if required.
