Got Cabin Fever?
35 Best Indoor Playhouses
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.

These are incredible! I wish I was a kid 🙂
I guess you can always make one for yourself. I know I still feel like a kid sometimes.
I would like to build my daughter the bunk bed house. Do you sell plans to make that or do you know where I can get plans to build it?
Gus, we don’t have any plans for that, but Ana White does. She has some great options. Good luck!
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!
