Building a cubby house? Let’s make it special.

Nothing excites a child quite like a cubby house. It might be the feeling of independence, or the fun of a little light DIY with their parents. Or maybe it’s just the freedom to draw on the walls without getting in trouble. If you’re planning on building a cubby for your little ones, it’s worth seeing what’s possible with a little extra effort.

A little imagination can work wonders on any space. Here, see just how much is possible.
