Designed to be beautiful and durable, our playhouses are expertly constructed under the watchful eyes of professional builders and architects. Each playhouse is custom-designed with beautiful enhancements that uniquely distinguish it from other playhouses. Playhouses have a maximum footprint of 8’x10’ and may be up to 10’6” tall. Many incorporate play features such as slides or climbing walls, and nearly all have operational doors and windows.
Since 1993, Stanford Shopping Center has hosted and produced the biennial Dreams Happen event benefiting Rebuilding Together Peninsula. Playhouses have sold for amounts ranging from $13,000 to $101,000. Starting bid is at the discretion of the auctioneer.
For information on absentee and/or proxy bidding, contact Melissa Lukin at 650.366.6597 x222 or at DreamsHappen@RTPeninsula.org.
If you are interested in designing or building a playhouse for Dreams Happen 2019, please email us at DreamsHappen@RTPeninsula.org. We'd love to answer any questions you may have or to hear about your whimsical playhouse ideas.
