Little Lodge is a custom built, miniature replica children’s play house that was installed in the garden of a private home in the UK and sits beside the home that it mimics. Unlike the real house, it also features a slide for children to exit by.
A True-To-Life Miniature Replica
We paid great attention to detail to capture the most defining features of the real house that this playhouse design was based upon, making it instantly recognisable to everyone who knows the house.
It’s All In The Detail
As with all our creations, this project was entirely bespoke and we paid great attention to detail, ensuring that every part of it was finished to the highest quality.
Moving House, Literally
Six years after we built Little Lodge, the client gave us a call to say that they were moving house, asking what we could do to help with the playhouse. Whilst they were moving house, we moved the house! We collected the Little Lodge playhouse and took it back to our workshops in Norfolk where we overhauled it, inside and out, so that it followed the theme of their new house. The overhaul involved painting realistic brickwork using an unorthodox, yet ingenious, cut sponge technique, as well as rotating the slide through 90 degrees to suit the new location.
We then transported the refurbished playhouse to the new location, at one point passing under a low bridge with just 1.5″ to spare. If there weren’t so many cars queued up behind us, we would have taken a photo to share with you. Fortunately we made it without problems and the house now sits in a new garden looking as good as new. Relocation, overhaul, and modification are a few more of the services that we offer, ensuring that your special creation can always remain in your family.
