If you haven’t seen the $30,000 playhouse a Michigan dad built for his two daughters by now, it’s probably because you didn’t realize it was a playhouse.
Because. uh.. well…
It pretty much just looks like a regular home.
Actually, scratch that.
It’s a beautiful home! The exterior looks like it was designed by Chip and Joanna Gaines from “Fixer Upper,” for heaven’s sake.
*Moment of silence for “Fixer Upper” ending after Season 5, please*
It has beautiful navy blue wood paneling, white trim and yellow flowers edging the porch. Plus, a rock wall, slide and a swing-type deal.
And. GET. THIS.
The dad is not even done!
Adam Boyd “finished” the project in August after working on it for about a year, the Detroit Free Press reported, but now he plans to add a zip line connecting from the top floor of the playhouse to a tree in the backyard.
Ugh, I’m just a tad jealous if you couldn’t tell.
I mean, let’s be real. As a recent college grad living on a shoestring budget, I would freakin’ LOVE for my dad to just casually build me a home in the backyard.
Like I said, just a tad jealous.
In all seriousness, though, what a cool dad! He reportedly spent hours after work and on weekend building the house, and apparently his older daughter helped him along the way, too.
I would have thought a separate house as large as this would have led to more family separation. If I were those kids, I’d never come home! But it seems the whole family likes to hang out there now.
Plus, there’s no tech in the playhouse. It’s a place for kids to be kids, Boyd said.
