Our playhouses are not designed for children aged under 36 months as there are many small parts, which may be a potential choking hazard. Furthermore, there is often a maximum user weight of 50kg when tower playhouses and two-story playhouses are concerned. We also recommend keeping the playhouses a minimum of 2m clear from any obstructions or other structures.

  • Air holes on the rear of the playhouse for safety and increased air circulation.
  • Shatterproof glazing, a safer alternative to glass, which is easily broken and can leave sharp edges.
  • Non toxic treatment or parts
  • Safety finger gap - A 12mm gap around the door which protects little fingers from being trapped.
  • Strong Tongue and Groove construction ensures a robust and solid build.

Whilst our playhouses are delivered undecorated with the natural wooden surface, encourage your little ones to paint and splash some of their favourite colours so that they can have a colourful play den. There are so many ways to make your little ones’ playpen more homely and colourful looking. A variety of colours can be purchased as an optional extra with your playhouse.

Spray Treated:

Our sheds, playhouses and summerhouses get a beautiful golden brown spray treatment before leaving the factory in order to preserve the quality of the wood up until the delivery. As this only lasts through the transit stage, we do advise treating the wood after installation to protect and preserve it, as well as annual maintenance.

Pressure Treated:

For an extra level of protection, you can opt for a pressure treated building which is an effective way of keeping the wood long lasting. This is an extra step in the manufacturing process where the wood is treated in a pressurised tank. Chemical preservatives are forced deep into the wood’s fibres to resist rot, decay and termites. When you upgrade to Pressure Treatment, the guarantee is extended from 10 to 15 years.

With the Childs Potting Shed an 11mm tongue and groove floor and roof is included.


Roof:

11mm: Our standard roof option, this interlocking roof provides a reliable covering for any building. The Tongue and Groove not only gives your building a stronger roof but also a premium look and feel.


Floor:

11mm: Our Standard flooring option provides a durable, solid foundation and underfoot to the building. The 11mm option is ideal for less demanding and frequent usage, suitable for lighter intensity purposes like summer houses and other living spaces containing light furniture. The 11mm tongue and groove timber makes this a solid yet suitable, economical option.

Crafted from shatter-resistant plastic (SAN) and suitable for seasonal use. SAN is used for its UV properties and the tougher finish avoids breakages when compared to glass. Single glazing is the perfect choice for seasonal buildings such as summerhouses, playhouses and sheds providing plenty of natural light into the building.

Yes, all garden buildings should be assembled on a firm and level base. A base will ensure your building has a solid, long-lasting and well-drained foundation.

Our robust and simple to use EcoBase provides you with a firm, long-lasting foundation with suitable drainage for your garden building. It is quick and easy to install through the use of snap connectors that link the grids to each other.

If you want to build your own base, from a sturdy material such as concrete or flagstones, you can find minimum dimensions for each size of this building in the tech specs. In order to protect your building from moisture, you should leave a 2ft gap around the exterior of your building, so remember to take this into consideration when laying any sort of base.

If your building is shorter than 2.5m you should not require planning permission, (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or will be placed in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area so we would strongly recommend checking your local council rules before purchasing a garden building from us.

We do not offer an installation service on any of our buildings, as they are designed to be easy and simple to assemble. Using the digital assembly instructions included in your order confirmation and with a team of at least 2 people, the handy pre assembled panels mean you will have your BillyOh building up in no time!

Our Playhouses are delivered in easy to assemble panels. For your convenience the panels are no wider than 4ft so they can be easily maneuverable and fit through a standard doorway. Glazing and any additional wood is delivered in separate, clearly labeled packages.

BillyOh Potting Shed Wooden Playhouse 

At Garden Buildings Direct, we offer a wide range of outdoor playhouses to make the most of your outdoor space and encourage hours of fun. And, although it's part of our range of traditional playhouses, the BillyOh Child's potting shed is unlike any other model.


With window boxes included, these playhouse designs can offer a dedicated space for budding green thumbs! The Billyoh Child’s Potting Shed Playhouse strikes the perfect balance between a garden shed and wooden playhouse. Suitable for young children, it features stylish stable doors, an apex roof and optional side windows to let the natural light flood in.


 

Designed as a crossover between a children's garden tool shed and a play house, it can be styled in whichever way you’d like. This potting shed is a great place for your children to store any toys and garden equipment they might use, and also a space for them to let their creative juices flow - whether that be through painting, potting or just simply playing!


It’d also be ideal as an indoor playhouse. Let them roam free in a safe environment where their imagination could take them anywhere. Like all our playhouses, this one is EN71 tested and approved, meaning it’s approved as safe for use by young children over the age of 3.


Suitable as a boys or a girls playhouse, the customisable features make it a winning choice for kids all over the country. You can decorate together with the included window crosses, flower boxes and classic style faux shutters.


It doesn’t just stop with our options though. With either our optional paints (Also EN-71 tested and approved!) or your own you and your little one can decorate however you like! A pink playhouse gives it a beautiful doll house style or a rustic brown makes it look like their own little cottage style playhouse.


The BillyOh Child’s Potting Shed Playhouse is an affordable Wendy house and a memorable birthday or Christmas gift for any budding young gardener.


At Garden Buildings Direct, we have a multitude of wendy houses for sale. The Child’s Potting Shed Playhouse is just one of them! Amongst others, we stock buildings like the Bunny Max and the Lollipop Max. They’re both a two storey playhouse and a playhouse with slide wrapped up in one amazing package. They’re two of the best tower playhouses on the market.


Tongue and Groove

Strong tongue and groove cladding offer this potting shed structural rigidity as well as a tight seal against water ingress. Tongue and groove panels interlock to create a strong build. Plus, this kids wooden playhouse also comes with green mineral roof felt included.


Pressure Treatment

With optional pressure treatment, you can protect your potting shed playhouse against fungal decay, insect infestation, and damp and decay due to harsh weather conditions. Otherwise, your playhouse with be delivered with golden brown spray treatment wood treatment to protect it throughout delivery.


Colours and Paint

BillyOh playhouses offer a blank canvas for you and your kids to paint. So whether it's pirate ships or hideouts that you're after, you can pick a colour scheme from our range of trim and wall paint options.


Base

If the thought of pavers or concrete bases sounds a bit extreme to you, why not simply opt for Ecobase (available as an add-on). As long as you place your outdoor building on a suitable and level base, you shouldn't run the risk of cracking or warping in either the windowed or windowless potting shed models.
