Got Cabin Fever?


35 Best Indoor Playhouses

You and your kids can beat cabin fever with these great indoor playhouse ideas!

 It’s been a long time since I’ve spent the winter months in a place with “real” winter.  We’re talking lots of snow, lots and LOTS of snow, freezing temperatures, icy roads an inversion….the whole nine yards.  Months and months of that stuff.  And since this is the first time I’ve experienced that kind of winter with kids of my own, well—let’s just say I have an entirely new understanding of the diagnosis “cabin fever”.

We’ve definitely got a bad case of it.  Can I admit we’ve even pulled our outdoor slide into Etta’s room.  We are missing the playhouse that we created in our last house (which I still haven’t really shown you finished yet, but I will, here are some of the posts though:  Starting to build, mural painting, mini child’s hutch building, coffered ceiling,  fireplace and play kitchen reveal and plans….)

Since I told you about my color plans for Etta’s room, I’ve been drawing up elevations.   While drawing, I have been thinking about nooks and fun places that make me want to be a kid again.  I just really I want to create something like that  in Etta’s room.  So, of course  while I’m dreaming up plans, I thought it would be fun to check out a few inspiring ideas for indoor playhouses and spaces, below.

    Love the inspiration. Any thoughts on where I can get a slide like the one used in “Indoor Slide and Bed Nook”? Thanks

      Hi Jennifer — I’d imagine you could use the slide part from a regular swingset type slide and then build a base for it. But that’s just a guess as I haven’t ever tried it myself! Thanks for reading!
