My previous post on cubby houses was extolling the virtues of the cubby made by children rather than a shop bought cubby. If you have the skills then a handmade permanent cubby is the way to go for a play place in the garden. We have just been visiting in Canberra and in the garden where we stayed there is a cubby which has been lovingly built by the children’s father. He has used recycled timber and iron to produce this beautiful cubby for them to play in. He has carpentry skills as well as welding skills.
