Why Playhouse?

Our Playhouse Build Days are a unique building opportunity for teams to work together to construct and decorate children’s playhouses, which are then donated to military and veteran families in DeKalb County or are auctioned off to raise funds. Proceeds raised by Playhouse Build Days, through sponsorships and/or auction, provide direct support for our programs.

Playhouse Builds also offer a flexibility that regular Build Days do not – we come to you or provide a functional workspace for your team.

How it works

Teams of any kind can build playhouses – corporate groups, faith congregations, youth and school groups, members of community organizations and groups of friends. Each playhouse takes 6-8 hours to build and paint with the help of 8-10 volunteers (please note that this number subject to change due to COVID restrictions). Each playhouse is pre-cut and brought to your parking lot or event site so that your team can build and decorate! Several playhouses can be built at once to engage more people.


Revenue from this program is used to fund the construction of real Habitat homes for struggling families or senior and veteran home repairs in DeKalb County. To reserve a Playhouse Build Day, we ask that your team commits to a sponsorship that covers the cost of building and decorating your playhouse. We will recognize your generous sponsorship on social media, in our monthly e-blast and in our annual report.
