Dad Builds Amazing Two-Story Playhouse For His Daughters.


Adam Boyd, from Highland, Michigan, should win the father of the year award!

When you're a parent, there's nothing better than seeing your children smile from complete happiness. Your children are what you live for and you would do anything to ensure that they're happy. That could mean watching Frozen twelve times in one day while wearing matching Elsa costumes. It could mean skipping out on date night to spend an exciting evening at Chuck E Cheese. It could mean reading the same story every night because it keeps the bad dreams away. This father went above the call of parental duty to bring everlasting smiles to his daughter's faces in an incredibly impressive way.

Adam is the proud father of two little girls, Avery and Violet. He spent the last year of his life building a magical place for his children to play.

What was only supposed to be a simple playhouse, turned into something much bigger.

Adam is the founder of the remodeling company, ATB Building. He put his unbelievable skills to use and built a playhouse that anybody would be happy to live in.

He wasn't expecting the playhouse to look like a house that could be found in any residential neighborhood.

“I got to a point where I just asked myself, 'Why stop now?'" Adam explained. “I wanted to do something special, something they would be proud of and one day tell their friends that their dad built this for them."

The outside of the playhouse has so much for the girls to do!

The girls can have an adventure climbing their rock wall or crossing the bridge into another land of imagination. They can also play on the swings or slide, or have a picnic on their loft.

The inside of the playhouse is absolutely perfect for little girls.

It comes complete with lighting fixtures, kitchen supplies, and hardwood floors. Adam did a great job picking out all of the furniture for their perfect playhouse.

His daughter Avery got to help him build it, too!

She picked up trash, swept floors, and even got to do some painting. “It gave me some daddy-daughter time and I was able to teach her my skills, and that was pretty cool,” said Adam.

While Adam was building it, he wasn't sure how his daughters were going to react after it was all done.

“I didn’t really know how Avery and Violet were going to react. I didn’t know if they were going to use it, or if it was just going to be a really nice pink office for my business," said Adam.

As it turns out, the girls are in love with it!

They play in their playhouse almost every single day. A lot of the time Adam and his wife join them outside, but they provide the pizza!

Adam's playhouse has received plenty of media attention.

He posted pictures of the playhouse on Facebook, and has gotten requests from others asking him to build a playhouse for their children, as well. The requests have inspired Adam to start Spoiled Rotten Homes, a company that will build lavish playhouses for children.

Even though Adam loves his work, he encourages others to do the work themselves.

“If people want to build one themselves, go for it. It’s been a very rewarding experience, from building it with my daughters to playing in it with them, it’s all been great," said Adam.
