We've crafted a step by step by step guid, helpful tidbits and an overview of the possible choices, of which there are many!
We hope you find this helpful to make a decision. If you still need our help, make sure to reach out! 

Step 1. Measure your space

The first step in understanding what is achievable is to measure your space and decide what area you are prepared to give over to the play. Grab length x width in cm or mm, and don't forget the height. Also consider the following: 

  • Play will extend beyond the cubby. Be sure to consider the space the cubby will take up, but also a bit of extra space for the important interactions through the openings.
  • Ventilation. You will want some good air flow around the cubby, so be sure to include around 20cm off the fence. This will allow the water to drain off the back with enough air flow to dry out.

Step 2. Think Budget $$

Budget is usually one of the first questions we ask when quoting as it will determine lots of our recommendations like size, features, DIY or full service. You can spend a lot and get something perfect and you can spend a little and get something perfect too.

Step 3. Consider your family dynamics

We will always ask what kind of kids do you have to determine your perfect space. Are they the quiet reading types, the outrageous climbing types or somewhere in the middle? Chances are if you have more than 1 their personalities will be vastly different, so consider features that they will all benefit from.

Step 4. Get your kids involved in the design

If you are not planning a surprise then definitely get the kids involved. They can help measure, budget and choose their features, and If you DIY they can get involved in the building too! I can't tell you how many sketches we have been sent by the kids outlining all their wishes, from fireman poles to secret tunnels, they love the process!

Step 5. Think DIY or Castle and Cubby install

We have designed our products to be super easy to DIY and with a little planning and time you can live the DIY glory and be the hero in their eyes. Or, if time and want/desire are telling you otherwise, then let us do it for you!

Remember these important tidbits

Buy for love not guilt

If your space or budget are limited, no worries. Know the kids will LOVE whatever space you provide, little or big.

We can move you

Add to it over time

You can build a fully interactive space over time, as a lot of our accessories can easily be added later.
