As a kid, I had a life-size playhouse in our backyard. It was pretty basic: a box, with a pitched roof, one exterior window, a dutch door. It was painted blue with white trim. Completely unfinished on the inside with no electricity or running water (joke). At certain times of the year it was cold and damp inside with a musty smell. But regardless, it was my little retreat and I played for hours in there with friends. Or rather, I played for hours, friends stayed for brief visits. I couldn't even manage to keep Scamp, our Cocker Spaniel in there for very long, he always wanted out for some reason. It moved with us about three times and then I finally outgrew it prior to our next move. So my parent's put it "on the market" and surprisingly it *sold* rather quickly.
