Reflecting the creative minds of children, these luxury playhouses offer princesses, superheroes and monsters the chance to explore, learn and discover from the comfort of their own backyards.

Whether it’s a princess castle, cozy cottage or luxurious mansion, each playhouse also offers beautiful aesthetics that will make parents happy. While most adults value high-quality construction and contemporary design, many of us still have an inner-child within. Brian Grossman, partner at Grossman Design Build — a company that has begun building playhouses for children in the Make-A-Wish foundation — understands this. “We used to build forts and playhouses as a kid all the time and we always dreamed of being able to do something like this,” he says.  

With the help of these adult-led companies — Lilliput Play HomesGrossman Design Build and Charmed Playhouses, each creative playhouse can now embrace a sense of imagination that’s only truly be found in a child.

Lilliput Play Homes

After trying to find the perfect playhouse for their daughter, founder Stephen Chernicky and her husband decided to create the first Victorian Mansion playhouse and launch Lilliput Play Homes.

Since its inception, the family company has taken personal pride in the creation of every wooden playhouse and has emphasized the belief that children should have a special place of their own to grow and discover.

Families may choose from many available designs, including the Fairytale Cottage, Ole Fireplace or Victorian Mansion,  or opt for a custom playhouse.

Grossman Design Build


From foundation to furniture, this custom playhouse was built by Grossman Design Build, a full-service architecture and construction company. Whether it’s the stone exterior, sunny screen room or cozy interior, each area of this playhouse was designed with both parents and children in mind.

Having started building custom playhouses two years ago, the team has since built 10 for the the Make-A-Wish north Texas Chapter. “We are teaming up with Make-A-Wish to build modular, custom playhouses that we can ship across the country to anyone who wishes to buy one and then we will donate playhouses to Make-A-Wish with a portion of the proceeds,” explains Grossman.

The team was also featured on an episode of HGTV’s Fixer Uper, where they built a wheelchair-accessible backyard and playhouse for two young boys. When building a playhouse, Grossman finds “it is the most fun we have had building, because you get to be a kid again.”
