As Isabelle moves forward with her kitchen reno, she’s also planning some eco-friendly fun for the backyard!

Isabelle will be demolishing the patio in the back to replace it, and rather than taking the wood to the dump she plans to reclaim it and use it to build a playhouse for her daughter. With inspiration from varied Pinterest posts, it’s sure to be an adorable addition to the landscaping work which is also in the planning stages.

After pouring a concrete foundation, the patio will be moved practically intact and made the floor of the playhouse. Not only is this saving building material, it makes the whole build just a little easier! The little playhouse will be painted to match the exterior of the home, basically making it a scale version of the larger house! The interior will probably be painted white but filled with vibrant accessories and furniture.
