Pretty in Pink

Barbara Butler’s Country Cottage Playhouse

We are about to pack up this playhouse and send it off to NY (along with a treehouse that is going to Southampton). Jose is “detailing” which is the last step in the process: hanging the Dutch door and shutters, adding the trims, adding any play accessories and touching up any scratches. Once the playhouse is perfect, we take it apart, “blanket wrap” the big pieces (and box the small pieces) then load it into the truck.

Barbara hand-carves the flowers, fairies, dragonflies, butterflies, birds and fauna on all 4 sides of the playhouse. Then Rudi, our Master Stainer, applies the color:
Jeff (Barbara’s husband) will be driving the truck across country this week, then Barbara and crew will fly in on Sunday. Installations start on Monday.
