Playhouse for boys AND girls

I have two grandchildren - one boy & one girl (so far)
The project for next spring is a playhouse for the cottage. I've been looking at a lot of plans on the internet and had a lot of help from the archives of the group. I'd like to make a playhouse that looks like a gingerbread cottage on one side and a fort/castle/stockade on the other. Any ideas?

No... what you should do is make a playhouse that has a garrage/workshop attached. get your grandson some tools and wood and get him hooked. ;) If you're really lucky, your granddaughter will throw him out and start the craft herself... and he can become a cook.

Actually the granddaughter is already all over my workshop - can't handle tools yet since she's only 2. Grandson is still on the bottle (milk not booze)
I expect the project to take me most of next summer and be ready the following year.
Cottages are great for woodworking. George

Friend of mine has done this - built a pretty traditional English Midlands timbered house; black oak beams and white plasterwork between. To convert it between gingerbread / fortified manor house, drape two sets of painted canvas banners over the outside. One has a big heraldic banner, the other is two narrow banners with climbing roses painted on them.
