I don't want people to look at my work in your backyard and say, "That's nice." I want people to say, "Whoah! That's amazing!"

Magical Playhouses designs and builds whimsical backyard structures, bringing the architecture for fairy tales and dreams to life. Now, don't get me wrong; I love designing and building children's playhouses, but adults need magical places to play too! That's why I also build small artist studios, writer's cabins, meditation rooms, she-sheds, small backyard offices and potting sheds, delivering them to backyards in Seattle, Medina, Bellevue, Bainbridge Island and all around the Northwest. I've even been know to put them in trees!

I use the same building techniques you would find in any 'real' custom home. But that's where the similarities end. I mean, just look at this playhouse! Can you imagine your kids growing up with that playhouse in their memories?!

Pablo Picasso once famously said, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." The world takes its toll. But sometimes all it takes to escape the humdrum of the everyday is a little curve in a roof, a small space in the backyard where you can escape to. Dream big, but think small, I say. Together, let's add a little magic to your backyard.

I have four loves: my family, woodworking, art and gardening. Mix them up and this is the result.
