Onion-shaped Den - large
This onion shaped den is my most popular playhouse shape - equally appealing to children, teenagers and adults.
The sloping sides are comfortable to lean against. The doorway is low but wide giving a sense of enclosure without being claustrophobic. The organic shape sits well among plants in the garden but would look stunning in an open plan interior space too.
This size costs £800 plus delivery. It measures 150cm diameter at the widest point and 175cm tall. The footprint is 114cm diameter and the internal floor is 107cm diameter. It comes complete with a wooden base.
The dens are given two coats of a non-toxic varnish which will need to be reapplied annually. Because they are made from natural materials my willow playhouses will not last forever if kept outside but, if looked after, should give at least 5 years service. They can, of course, be kept inside where they will last indefinitely if well cared for.
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 medium onion-shaped den 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.
