The tiny playhouse is built using cedar, oak, elm, ash and larch.



This tiny outdoor classroom is one of a pair built for a school in Norwich, England. It was built by Jay Hadley and his seven year old son who takes us on an enthusiastic tour of the house in the video right. The house is built using timbers and roundwood from five different trees, the leaves of which are shown below.


The main frame of the house is cedar felled on the school grounds. The door and door frame are made from oak, the windows are elm, the living roof timbers are ash and finally the cladding is made using the very fragrant larch. The door and windows where created in Jay's workshop and the rest of the house was built on site. It took jay two very long fourteen hour but rewarding days to put the house together. You can see another of Jay's tiny dens here.
