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.

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.

  • Sturdy safety rails on all tower playhouses and interior rails on playhouses with a bunk.
  • 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 Max an 11mm tongue and groove roof and solid sheet floor 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:

Durellis Solid Sheet: Great value, cost effective option for flooring. These floors are suited to lighter items and light domestic use.

We recommend adult monitoring whenever a playhouse is used. However, it may be of reassurance to learn that our playhouses are safety tested to British Standards BS-EN71 for domestic use.

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.

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 houses 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.

BillyOh Gingerbread Max Playhouse

The Gingerbread Max is a large and versatile playhouse. The beautiful crossed windows and flower boxes create a classic and playful playhouse style. There are multiple options, including an optional bunk and picket fences. The tall Reverse apex design offers great headroom and space for your children to play. The bunk option increases this space further by adding a new platform with a climbing ladder and safety rail for your peace of mind. The platform sits next to one of the top windows keeping the natural light flooding into the building.

 

The wooden playhouse is EN71 approved, keeping your children safe and allowing them to explore and play as much as they want. The large windows offer ample natural light giving your kids a fantastic area for creative activities. Many of our customers have taken their creativity to the next level by painting and decorating their playhouses. This garden playhouse could be transformed into a gorgeous Wendy house, a great wooden fort, or even a Christmas grotto. The possibilities for this building are endless, making it a perfect addition to any kids play area.


Tongue & Groove Timber Cladding


The building comes with a strong 11mm tongue and groove wooden floor and roof included, and roofing felt to improve the buildings’ weather resistance. This cladding material and cladding thickness, made from our high-quality European-sourced timber, is more than suitable for halting water ingress and improving weather-proofing. The windows are glazed using SAN shatterproof windows with safety glazing, making them very weather resistant and less prone to breaking.


The Gingerbread Max is built with both weather resistance and safety in mind. That's why this fantastic playhouse features things like a reverse apex roof to allow for runoff and included green mineral roofing felt as well as safety gaps around doorframes.


Lavish 2-Story Playhouse


This wooden playhouse is truly one of our most lavish models. You can add a host of kids playhouse accessories like picket fence options and an optional internal bunk whilst windows with window boxes come as standard.


Playhouses for children can be a place to create memories, have fun, and actually develop and built up social and cognitive skills. And this amazing two-story playhouse can be the place where your children do all that.

"The mini pink cottage! It is a mini version of our real house. Our little girl loves it so much! She loves inviting her friends in to play and they especially enjoy the upstairs! Great quality, good reviews and reasonably priced. Punctual delivery with clear instructions for assembly. Great experience!"

Rachel
We chose this playhouse as it matched the exterior of our cottage with the window and door position and had an upstairs which was important to our little girl! Also a great size and we loved the style! Our little girl now has a dry space outside to play where she can have tea parties and look after her dolls. It's also useful for storing her prams and doll's furniture. We painted it pink, with pink chimneys and red felt roofing tiles to match the masonry and roof tile colour of our cottage.
We filled the window boxes with pretty flowers and heathers. We added floral curtains and painted the door to match our own with her own mini door wreath. Our favourite thing is that our little girl loves it so much! She loves inviting her friends in to play and they especially enjoy the upstairs! We chose Garden Buildings Direct for the great quality, good reviews and reasonably priced. Delivery was punctual with clear instructions for assembly. Great experience! Absolutely would recommend.

"The Gingerbread Max is the perfect size for them. It was the best design and size that we could find. Our experience was very good - especially as we ordered during lockdown. We had no problems and it was delivered on time. I’d recommend Garden Buildings Direct. "

We wanted a two-storey playhouse for our daughters that had lots of room and looked pretty. The Gingerbread Max is the perfect size for them. It was the best design and size that we could find. It gives the girls their own outdoor space to play in and enables them to set up their own little house. They enjoy sharing the house with their friends. It’s called ‘Daisy Cottage’ - my little girl chose the name. It’s a very pretty addition to our garden and an amazing space for the girls to enjoy.

"The playhouse is great and my children love playing in it. The bunk makes it more exciting for them. We would definitely recommend buying from Garden Buildings Direct. "

We purchased from Garden Buildings Direct after searching for a playhouse online and saw the website. The playhouses looked good and we liked the fact that it would be delivered in the next few days and no need to wait long for delivery which is shown on some websites. We first chose the Gingerbread 6×4 thinking it was big enough but didn’t realise it was not very tall for a 5-year-old. So we then returned it and bought the Gingerbread Max with bunk.
Dealing with Garden Buildings Direct was straightforward and the staff was very helpful. We had a prompt, very polite and helpful reply to our messages. We were surprised and very pleased when a member of staff said that we could take the first one we bought down and that they would arrange for a pickup and a full refund. All we had to do was take photos of the dismantled house and send them by email. It was picked up in a few days and the new one was delivered.
