A Playhouse That’s Kid Friendly Without Kitsch

Janet Hall May 31, 2013

Imagine a thoroughly modern playhouse full of kid-friendly features and free of kitsch.

San Francisco-based Modern Cabana (recently acquired by Blu Homes) offers a prefab modern shed in miniature: the Kiddo Cabana. With imagination-friendly features such as chalk paint interior walls and a paper roll art station, the Kiddo Cabana comes with a fully finished interior and exterior. The easy-to-assemble kit of prefabricated parts ships nationwide (currently free of charge). Free assembly for pick up is offered for those who live within the San Francisco Bay Area. For information and pricing, see Blu Homes.

For those with four-legged family members, Modern Cabana also has a Dog Cabana model.

Above: The Kiddo Cabana is constructed with FSC certified lumber, translucent Polygal roof and siding pieces, and non-toxic paints and finishes.

Above: While flooring is not included (or necessary), the Kiddo Cabana can be set on a foundation if preferred.

Above: The interior includes a cleverly placed fold-down table.

Above: Artist-friendly surfaces are included.
