Style and Design
Children will love this delightful wooden playhouse with its saloon style front door and opening side windows. With its water resistant roof the Sunny Lodge is equally at home indoors or out and its traditional styling has produced an attractive playhouse which is sure to keep children amused for hours in constructive and educational role play.
The playhouse is constructed in durable reinforced cedar panels from FSC approved sources.
The Sunny Lodge measures roughly 3' x 3' its exact dimensions being 94cm wide and 102cm deep. The roof height at the apex is 4'4'' or 1.33m.
The playhouse's reinforced cedar panels are designed to resist weathering and warping.
The Sunny Lodge is delivered in easy to assemble wooden panels. Assembly, which isn't a major operation, should take around 45 minutes to an hour.

There's a lot to like about the Sunny Lodge which is a welcome addition to this size category. The cedar construction should provide a degree of natural weatherproofing although we'd still suggest that you keep a close eye on the wood for deterioration if the playhouse is located outdoors. Like all outdoor wooden buildings the finish will need maintenance from time to time and it will probably be necessary at some point to apply a suitable decorative/protective treatment as the original finish shows signs of deterioration.
The compact nature of the playhouse means it's ideally suited to either indoor or outdoor use although if you do site it outdoors you should be prepared for some water ingress via the door opening. This, coupled with the fact that the playhouse is not supplied with a floor means it is not really suited to outdoor storage of toys or other items which might be susceptible to water damage. Its size means it should be portable by two persons so it would be quite practical to keep the playhouse in a garage or the house during inclement weather and only use it outdoors when the sun shines.
The playhouse has decent headroom internally and will provide a useful amount of play space for smaller children. The opening side windows are an attractive feature too. There's not a great amount of choice in this size category and the Sunny Lodge is well placed against its competitors as far as size and price are concerned. There's nothing really to separate it from the Beach 100 other than some minor stylistic and pricing differences. In the end apart from perhaps price and availability, it will come down to personal preference between these two.
