The kids cubby house is just the new modern version of a playhouse, something that we are all familiar with, however the new cubby house is more detailed and made to look more like a real house than the old playhouses of the past. Cubby houses can be great for both parents and children alike. The children get the benefit of the fantastic place to play out of parents way, they can make a mess and not clean it up, they can shout and scream and do everything all kids do, and the parents can’t hear. Parents also benefit by not having the children underfoot, making messes inside the home, screaming and shouting and doing all the things that kids do that irritate parents. Plus the cubby house can be placed in the backyard, in a secure location that doesn’t need constant parental supervision.

Kids cubby houses come in a variety of different designs, shapes, sizes, and construction materials. You can design and build your own outdoor house if you’re handy that way, or you can buy a kit or prefab cubby online and have it shipped directly to your home and assemble it in about a weekend. One of the things that you need to do when choosing your cubby, is decide on how long you think your children will be playing in it. Younger children may have quite a few years left in them for imagining all the things that children do in play houses, whereas older children may move on to more adult types of things like cars, boyfriends, girlfriends, and sports.

If you’re planning on building your own cubby house you’ll want to start with a certain budget of how much money you want to spend. A fully decked out house can run as much is $2500 or as little as $600 depending on size, materials, and many other factors. Some building materials such as particleboard will deteriorate after a certain number of years in the elements, whereas high-quality plywood and solid wood could potentially last 25 year for more.
