Restoring this 33-year-old cubby house kept it in the family for another generation to enjoy.

The project

 

This is my wife's cubby house from when she was a kid. The roof and floor had completely rotted. With a sheet of Yellow Tongue particle board, some Merbau timber and Colorbond sheets, and after a lot of sanding and four coats of paint, I managed to keep this cubby in the family and save a lot of money. This project was extra fun because my wife helped paint and decorate.
