    We use it every day though.
    Expensive, impossible to construct, not treated and not painted, but we love it!

    I'm glad I read this, I was just about to spend almost $3000 on a cubbykraft cubby, but if it is awful to put up, then that isn't the cubby for us. I think I'll just get a swing set instead!

    Are you worried about the kids stuff getting wrecked by being more exposed to weather? Kitchen etc This is one of the main reasons I don't want a fort but a cubby.

    We bought ours from Costco and it was around $1500. DF was going to build one but when we weighed up cost of materials, time etc,this was a good option. It is two story, has two swings and monkey bars, rock climbing wall, spiral slide etc. He LOVES is and I'm sure our DD will too as she gets older!

    Not really - ours in enclosed at the back and 1 side , when it's raining the front top near the slide does get wet but the inside downstairs was fine - I've put 2 ikea shelves with the plastic buckets in there so normally ( when I remember!) we pack up all the toys/ pretend food and put them in the draws just in case, the plastic ikea stools are fine as I've left them Outside in the rain plenty of times! The ikea kitchen is under the cubby , It could get rained on if it was really heavy rain but I think I'd just go out and bring it inside if it were that bad - at least in the cubby he plays with it - it's been sitting in our family room not being used for nearly a year!

    This is my daughters cubby. I've sinced painted all the fence and lean-to (which I did seperate to the cubby) white to match the cubby. I bought it off ebay new for about $200 including frieght. Was a flat pack, pain in the butt to assemble but its cute. Pretty small, just fits a standard toy wooden kitchen and a chair in it, but its enough for 1 child.

    This is the cubby we've just had installed about a month ago. It hasn't been painted yet, sandpit filled or flowers in the flower boxes! We got it from Phoenix Platinum in Perth. They do kits but we paid extra for them to install it and it only took a couple of hours. The nicest people to deal with and the cubby is fantastic. Our almost 3 yo DD spends hours in there and when we had a party on the weekend all the kids (about 8 of them) were playing on/in it. With all the extras and installation it was close to $3,500.
