    what if you paid a carpenter to build you one? and all you get is the slide and extras? it can be built by one for way cheaper.

    Yeh I looked into that - but DH thinks with the cost of timber/supplies and labour ( its a pretty big cubby) it won't be lots cheaper - he is quite handy but time is his problem - he will paint it all and put it up himself ( they charge $300 to put it together!)

    Looks great! Miss 5 would like to know where you live so she can come for a play
    We have a Little Tikes Cottage that has served us well but is now pretty much grown out of, that one looks like it would last for a long time

    They are expensive, but think how long they will last. Over the number of years it will be used, it doesn't work out to be expensive.

    we have this one

    http://www.foryourbackyard.com.au/pr...he-ranch-cubby

    it is fantastic. It came in panels, so was really easy to put together, and DD loves it so much.

    They sell for a good amount 2nd hand so once she is finished we will probably sell it and get half the money back or so ...

    Oh I like that one too Katie's mum - I noticed you can get them elevated which we want so we can put a sandpit underneath
