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.
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
I expect the project to take me most of next summer and be ready the
Cottages are great for woodworking.
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.
