Here are five tiny abodes with giant “wow” factors. From DIY playhouses built by ingenious moms and dads, to sustainably designed diminutive dwellings you can buy, take a look at every kid’s summer dream home. Warning: You may be the one who wants to escape to these playhouses as your own summer retreat!

Dreaming Spires Willow Playhouse

Arguably the most sustainably designed playhouse on the planet, the Dreaming Spires Willow Playhouse is as enchanting as it is green. Handmade in Surrey, England by artist Judith Needham, this beauty is fashioned with annually renewable English Willow which naturally degrades over 4-5 years. The structure may then be recycled directly back into the garden in which it resides: used as fire kindling, placed in a compost bin, or shredded for garden mulch.
