Our play house business came about purely by accident. Andrew built a house for the girls, then afew for friends then tried one on Ebay and here we are 600 houses later since the spring of 2011.
We are very lucky to live on a 50 acre farm which by todays standards is regarded as a small holding so there has always been a need to diversify to top up our income and a carpentry workshop is an ideal enterprise to run along side the farm.
We are now into our 5th year of Playhouse building and the business is very well established with some very exiting projects under our belt. The interesting part is we never new what would happen and have basically been taken on a journey into the unknown. We have gone from making small houses and selling them very cheaply on Ebay to now creating large bespoke houses and enjoy working with the customers to plan their perfect house.
Where will the business take us next? I guess to even more imaginitive and higher quality houses.
