Timber-Frame Playhouse

David Trepp of Newport News, Virginia crafted a detailed replica of the timber-frame buildings he had admired abroad to give his daughters a magical place to play. The carved entry doors were purchased by David and his wife, Elizabeth, over 21 years ago, complete with their iron lockset, from an antiques dealer in Germany. After moving from Germany to the U.S., the doors sat in the garage until David realized he could build a playhouse around them.
