Our new apple crate cubby houses are made using sustainably sourced, untreated, new apple crates. These cubbies have a glorious 'finished' quality, with little to no gaps in the panels.
Perfect as is, or to use when opting to paint your cubby exterior to fit your family's preferred style. If left raw in the weather, this material will gray off beautifully within roughly 12-18 months.
As the apple crates have a set size, all of the cubbies in this range are in multiples of this measurement. Please see our table below for sizes and prices. Peruse our image gallery below for inspiration, and check out our accessories to bring the cubby cute-factor up a notch!
As this is a brand new product for us ALL of our images here debut our hot-off-the-press Tribe Cubby (see table below for price), made from new apple crates. We will add more images as we start rolling these babies out in different sizes and styles.

EXTRA HEIGHT - We have set the internal height of our cubby houses at 150cm for a few reasons, one - kids won't typically reach this height before they are 'over' (insert pre-teen eye roll) their cubby house days. And two - we personally think the proportions work best at this height. The cuteness factor is always a top priority!
The height does make it a bit tricky as an adult to stand up, so if you do plan on spending a bit of time in the cubby (and really that is the only reason to do it) you can add a height extension to bring the internal height up to 180cm.

CLEAR ROOF - We use a recycled corrugated iron for the roofing. With the inclusions of the doors and windows, we think this option lets enough light in, BUT, if you are someone who revels in sunlight, then we can look at a full or partial clear roof option. Chat to us.
ACCESSORIES - We have a large range of accessories including decking, awnings, bunting, planter boxes, letter boxes, furniture and other play equipment that can really give your cubby house POP and WOW. Check out our links below to peruse the fun.
CUSTOMISATION - Positioning of doors and windows, extras we don't have listed, killer ideas you have - don't hesitate to let us know. Much of our business has been built on the back of brilliant ideas from our friends and clients.
