    This was a playhouse kit that we purchased. It isn't complete just yet but quite near. We will be using a 10x10x6 dog pen for the run. I can't wait for it to be ready for my sweet babies! It is 4'x4' but we plan on expanding before too long!!

    It's looking very cute! [​IMG] All of the windows are GREAT!!! I'd do hardware cloth over the windows permanently to take advantage of breezes in warm weather, and maybe make removeable plexiglass panels to cover the windows in winter time. Just something to think about... Keep us updated on your progress!

    Bearing in mind that the peak of the roof is six feet high. Take a look at the pic of where the nesting boxes will be and let me know if you think they could easily access them.

    Wow Jen, when you told me about the playhouse I never expected it to look so nice! It's beautiful!

    Is that your new Dorothy?
