Deposit for a playhouse
I can only make the larger playhouses (everything except the Podkin) in the Spring and early Summer when freshly cut willow is available. Hence, I only make 10-20 playhouses a year - most are made to order. However, I do currently have one Podkin in stock. I usually stop making around mid-July and start again in January. Whilst I'm making, you can choose to either buy a specific playhouse or pay a £150 deposit which will put you on my waiting list. For the remainder of the year you will need to pay a deposit which will put you at the head of the queue for the following Spring. If you have any questions please email me on email@example.com.
If you choose to pay a deposit, I will invoice you for the remainder plus delivery once the playhouse is ready. Please add a note at checkout to tell me what sort of playhouse you want and if there are special requirements about timings. I will reply, telling you an approximate date that I expect your playhouse to be ready.
I will make playhouses in the order that I have received deposits or orders so, the earlier you order, the earlier you will get your playhouse. If you want it to arrive to coincide with a birthday or other special event please let me know and I will try to arrange that.
Please note that the deposit is non-refundable and that I will invoice you for the remainder of the playhouse price plus delivery once the playhouse is ready. If you are in the South of England I usually charge about £150 for delivery and will bring it to you myself. If further afield I will use a courier. They can charge up to £600 for a delivery in England, £1,200 for Europe and £2,000+ outside Europe inc. the USA. Please ask if you would like a delivery quotation. Alternatively you are welcome to collect your playhouse from my studio in Surrey, England.
Please do check that wherever you plan to put the playhouse is easily accessible. Any delivery quotation will exclude the cost of craning the playhouse over your house if that's the only way to get it into your garden!!
