Playhouse Auction open house May 23

These two luxury playhouses are the result of students' work in Doug Batzlaff's carpentry class. This hands-on technical education class taught students about construction basics and the skills needed for the construction industry. With a solid foundation and floor, hand-framed walls, rafters, windows, and doors, these playhouses will be bustling with laughter and family memories. A bit of creativity and a coat of paint on exterior walls and inside play areas make these whimsical structures each a one-of-a-kind. Oh, and did we mention each has a tiny mailbox by the door for letters from imaginary friends.
