Cubby Houses

As Eliza grows up I am starting to think about the things I wanted as a little girl, but never had. My mum did an awesome job of raising me, don't get me wrong, but we moved house a lot (I have moved house 32 times already - and I am only 27!). I never had a family home that held all my memories, and it is that I want to create for Eliza.

I was always envious of my cousins who had a cubby house, and now I am starting to think about one for Eliza. I could buy one, but where is the fun in that? Besides, have you seen the price of cubby houses these days? Its horrendous!!!

I love this one

(I tried to find the website for the original cubby, but it doesn't exist. Pity, it looked like a cute site.

and this one for its simplicity

but this one takes the cake!

  1. The idea of a cubby house is very new to me. The last one looks gorgeous. Your girl is lucky to have you. It looks like a mini house. Hopefully, she will become independent throughout the years by using it. It will teach her to clean and arrange her house properly. Good luck with building it. Hope to see end of the project later on. :D

  2. I remember the days when I was just little. My father used to entertain me with these amazing cubbies. One of them had almost same design as the second picture.



Thanks for your comments. I love seeing what you have to say, so write away!
