The Playhouses are built by local builders including Flinton Construction, John Laing Homes, Shea Homes, UCI Facilities Management Team, W Custom Homes, Wahoo's Fish Taco and Friends, Waterpointe Homes and William Lyon These Playhouses are built by the local builders, and the proceeds benefits Homeaid Orange County.

The Playhouses are absolutely amazing. There is incredible detail with design, finish, roofs, doors and windows - they are literally small scale homes with spectacular features. There is landscaping to go along with the theme of the Playhouse. Each Playhouse is built differently with differnet design and architecture. Wahoo's Fish Taco built their playhouse as a replica of one of their restaurants. (Wahoos food is amazing - however that is for another blog post).Wahoos Fish Taco Playhouse

How amazing!! MAN...when I was a little girl...I dreamed of a playhouse like this. When my older girls were little, I designed a playhouse bed that they thought was the most incredible thing in the whole world. It was like a little, garden cottage with steps that led up to the bed. Inside, there was a little kitchen and living room. They used it until they were too big to stand up in it. These playhouses take me back to those days. What a wonderful way to raise money and awareness. GBU, Sharon!!

Hi Sharon, I think that they are doing the same thing up here in Westlake Village. I saw them building the houses last week. Very Cool.
