Our sheds 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.

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.

  • Rounded edges and smooth framing.
  • 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.

With the Gingerbread Junior an 11mm tongue and groove floor and roof is included.


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.


11mm: Our Standard flooring option which 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, play houses and sheds providing plenty of natural light into the building.

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.

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.

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.

Please check the technical document for the size of the picket fence when planning for a 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 play house 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.

Your order can be tracked through the account section on our website or by contacting us directly. You will be contacted after your order via your online account, email or text to provide updates on delivery dates.

We offer a pay by finance option on any purchase over the value of £560.

Our simple finance options allow you to spread the cost of your purchase over 24, 36 or 48 months.Read more about our Pay by Finance option here.

Kids Wendy House

Kids playhouses don't just provide hours of fun, they're also a great place to develop social skills and creative thinking. And the Gingerbread Junior is one of our most traditional cottage style playhouses with window box and barn-style doors. Our playhouses often find themselves customised to suit as Wendy Houses.


Tongue & Groove

Tongue and groove panels make this quality playhouse built to withstand the elements. 11mm tongue and groove construction for the roof and floor offer a tight seal at points of potential water ingress, while the tongue and groove cladding for the walls offers structural rigidity.


Picket Fence

Our traditional playhouses wouldn't be able to give you that "Little House On The Prairie" feel without their additional picket fences.



On top of that we offer a range of colour options to transform the blank canvas that is your Gingerbread playhouse. Turn your BillyOh building into a fairytale castle or a pirate ship - it all starts with a splash of paint!



Golden brown spray-treated timber will stay protected until delivery, protecting your easy-to-assemble tongue and groove playhouse.

It's one of our biggest selling models and can be assembled in just a matter of hours using some basic tools.

The Gingerbread Junior features shatterproof windows made from SAN-glazed shatterproof plastic as well as safety gaps around doors for your peace of mind. Features like safety rails are included on certain models and all playhouses are tested to EN71 European Safety Standards.


Our tongue and groove playhouses also come with a 10-year guarantee against insect infestation, decay, and damp to further prioritise child safety and quality.

"Gardens Buildings Direct had exactly what I was looking for and not too long a waiting time for delivery. I most definitely would recommend GBD to friends & family."

I bought the Gingerbread Junior for my 2 granddaughters and we named it ‘Gingerbread Cottage’. It’s allowed me to sit and enjoy watching my granddaughters play in the house for hours.
We’ve added laminated flooring, a kitchen with a dining table, a settee and solar lights outside. Paint it before putting it together is my only tip.
