My Granddaughter's Playhouse

14K Views
My husband and I had so much fun transforming our granddaughter's playhouse that her other Granddad salvaged from someone who wanted it moved. He hauled it to their back yard and put it in place and we went to work on it. This little house had a sad ending, though. Hurricane Katrina flooded their back yard and the foundation sustained significant damage. Her dad thought that it had seen its best life, so it went to the dump! Oh, how I wish I had it in my back yard now......floor or no floor. But they live 8 hours away and hauling it that far would have been out of the question.
