A Surprise for our Girls
Quite some time ago, we went to our neighbors to ask if we could buy a little playhouse that was sitting unused. We thought, ok, I thought it would make a really cute chicken house. We were thinking of getting chickens for Gullringstorp and had yet decided on how to house them. This little playhouse seemed perfect.
It’s tradition to build a replica of the main house when houses are being built in Sweden. They are so cute. The children have a tiny replica of the house they live in. It’s also tradition to allow children to make decisions. The young lady who had clearly outgrown her play house, refused to sell it to us. I was disappointed of course , but she had that right to say no.
We decided to renovate the outdoor stable bathroom/shower house. So now our chickens have a real apartment. They have 3 rooms, a front door with steps , a hatch door on the side, a heater, windows and lights.
We have watched the cute little playhouse fall into disrepair from non use over the past year. Poor little house. While in London, my husband was asked if we wanted this little playhouse, at no charge. My husband accepted and said we would find good use for it. The sad little playhouse made its way into our goat enclosure. With much TLC this house is now a cute addition to our enclosure and a place to have hay and shelter for our girls.
Our girls are all happy with the new playhouse and we are happy to have it.
