Castle Cottage

Castle Cottage perches on stilts, a charming wooden playhouse in a dappled courtyard. Tucked into a previously unused part of the courtyard, Castle Cottage has filled the visual void of the neighboring large blank wall. A 2-Story Lookout Tower expands the play area and is reached by a Rung Ladder inside. The Main Playhouse segment has an L-shaped Loft under the Gable Roof of colorful cedar shingles.

Romeo and Juliet's Castle

Besides climbing up and sliding down an Octagon tower, Romeo and Juliet's Castle offers theater opportunities for young thespians and musicians. Imagine...Lights! Camera! Action!  All take place on this kid-size theater playstructure with velvet curtains and stage lights.

Fort Runway

Fort Runway starts at the bottom of a steep hill with a rustic Clubhouse on top of large 12' x 12'  deck with multiple play features and then heads up hill with a series of challenging and fun "obstacle course" straight and swinging bridges and rope net climbs. Go outside and play takes on a Raiders of the Lost Ark feeling with Fort Runway!

Calico Cottage

The Calico Cottage is a perfect custom Play Structure! Built on top of an existing retaining wall and nestled into the hillside, this delightful cottage is designed to creatively maximize previously unused space.

Portola Valley Lookout

Portola Valley Lookout was featured on Evening Magazine of San Francisco's KPIX TV. Barbara broke through an existing deck railing near the playroom of the family's home and then built steps up to a small Platform over the pathway below (so the path would remain usable). From the Platform, a 10-foot Swinging Bridge connects to a Hexagonal Tower with a Turbo Tube Slide. A fun, new approach to integrating play structure and home.
