Cubby Houses are Cool again with almost every parent these days having one in their own back yard. Cubby Houses are easy to source as many department stores now stock them, or are easy to purchase on-line and if you have some woodwork skills, then why not build your own from scratch!

Cubby Houses can come in all different sizes and styles, making them ideal for almost any back yard. Most Cubby Houses are made out of timber, giving them many options to choose from in terms of paint colours or timber coatings and stains. And Cubby Houses have come a long way since we were kids, as parents are thinking more outside the square with the addition of decking, adjoining garages or carports and verandahs. Cubby Houses have become a miniature version of the modern home with everything from furniture, accessories through to window treatments and even plants. Let your kids' imagation run wild with these Cool Cubby House Ideas........

Tips: If you are using a premium exterior paint such as Dulux Weathershield to paint a timber Cubby House, and it is bare timber then most of the time you won't need to use an undercoat as the paint is self-priming. If the timber is quite porous then you may need 3 top coats to cover, otherwise 2 coats should be enough. If your Cubby House is made out of pre-primed timber (with a pink, blue or green coating) it is always best to undercoat the timber as it is really unknown what has been used to pre-prime the timber and your topcoats may not stick. Using a product such as Dulux 1 Step Acrylic will give you that piece of mind when it comes to undercoats and to make sure your topcoats stick to the timber. If you have any questions in regards to which products are going to be suitable for your project, you can send us an email to or call us on 0450 602 891 and we'll be able to point you in the right direction.
