This 80-year-old playhouse, now a garden house, is on a historical property with an 1809 stone farmhouse and wagon house. Repurposing the structure while maintaining as much original material as possible is an imperative of our stewardship for all of our buildings. We saved money by doing all of the finish work once the structure was soundly in position. It is not only very useful now, but also an eye-catching attraction of the property.
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
