Playways Otter cottage is where it all started 10 years ago. This wooden playhouse encapsulates all the values that Playways started out with and which still hold true today.
The Otter Cottage has a symmetrical double fronted aspect, with a central door and window to each side. There is also a window on each side of the playhouse.
As with many of our designer playhouses the roof is made of cedar shingles. The construction is of cedar shingle over batten, just like in a real house. The roof itself is a real work of art, with the gable shape over the door being reflected inside to create real space, character and airiness inside.
The walls and ceiling of the playhouse are finished in plywood which is painted using several coats of acrylic paint. The inside walls and ceiling are completely flat, so that the final result is just like the painted walls of a real house.
Of course, as with all Playways playhouses and climbing frames the choice of colour is the customers as indeed are all the elements of the final specification.
BUYING A PLAYWAYS PLAYHOUSE OR CLIMBING FRAME
We like to work with our customers to ensure that what we are building for you is going to be a seamless and trouble free process.
Often the best way to start is to give us a call (01404 891061) or drop us an email at [email protected]. We can talk through the options and possibilities with you, and discuss the specifics of you garden, and also try to ascertain what it is you want from your playcentre.
In a lot of cases a visit to site can be useful. We’ll bring a tape measure, some blank paper, and plenty of photographic examples of our work for you to look at. We don’t charge for making site visits. Usually at the end of a visit it is possible to give you a price. Sometimes it may be necessary to go away and work up a design and a quotation.
Once you are happy with the design and proposal we will raise our sales order. We ask for a deposit of 30% of the value of the order. This can be paid online direct to our bank account, or we can take card payments over the phone, we still take good old fashioned cheques and as long as our bank still takes cash we happy to accept that too!
There is a facility to pay through the website, but we’d really like to talk to you first.
Once a sales order is in place and a deposit has been paid we will make the product in our workshop. We aim for a delivery and installation within 4 weeks of ordering, at busy times this may be a little more but is almost always within 6 weeks.
We deliver and install all our playhouses and climbing frames ourselves. Most playcentres are installed within one day. Some of the larger units will take 2 days. Large bespoke projects may take 3 days to build in your garden.
