Why A wooden Wendy House?
A wooden wendy house provides a practical solution for the ever evolving space problems. When you need more working space, living space, playing spaces like doll houses or just some extra space to store goods a wooden wendy house or similar wooden structure can be the perfect answer.
Depending on your build option most wendy houses are moveable structures that you can move to another space on your property, or you are able to disassemble and take it with when you move.
Cliffie’s wooden Wendy houses and other wooden structures all come with a 5 year warranty. The wendy houses are fitted with fibre cement or or galvanised corrugated iron roofs. All our wendy houses have sturdy wooden floors and glass fitted windows. All of the walls are manufactured from oven-dried graded SA Pine.
At Cliffie’s we make use of more expensive, longer lasting ring shank nails on our wendy houses, which is not what you will find easily in the industry. The ring shank nails add to the stability of the structure and it will remain resilient for much longer than the wire nail constructed counterparts.

Descriptions Of Our wooden Structures
A Wendy house or playhouse is a small house for children, large enough for one or more children to enter. Size and solidity can vary from a plastic kit to something resembling a real house in a child’s size. Usually there is one room, a doorway with a window on either side, and little or no furniture other than that which the children improvise.
In South Africa, there is another explanation for the origin of the name “Wendy House”. There it is said to have come from the building of a doll’s house for a young lady called Wendy in Pretoria in the mid-1960s (the doll’s house rather like that of Wendy in Peter Pan). In this case, during construction of the doll’s house, a regular question to the builder was “How’s Wendy’s house?”. This name, “Wendy’s house”, stuck amongst the constructors, and was eventually used by all building this type of construction.
A shed is typically a simple, single-storey roofed structure in a back garden or on an allotment that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop. Sheds vary considerably in the complexity of their construction and their size, from small open-sided tin-roofed structures to large wood-framed sheds with shingled roofs, windows, and electrical outlets. Sheds used on farms or in industry can be large structures.
The main types of shed construction are metal sheathing over a metal frame, plastic sheathing and frame, all-wood construction (the roof may be asphalt shingled or sheathed in tin), and vinyl-sided sheds built over a wooden frame.
A doghouse, dogshed or kennel is a small shed commonly built in the shape of a house, a shelter intended for a dog. It is a structure in which a dog is kept and it is intended to provide a safe place to dogs outdoors. Doghouses are also used for other pets, such as rabbits in enclosed yards.
Humans often build “houses” for domestic animals, often resembling smaller versions of human domiciles. These include bird-houses, hen-houses/chicken-coops and doghouses; while housed agricultural animals more often live in barns and stables. A doghouse is a simple dwelling for a dog. Building houses for the domestic pets has a long tradition. Dog houses are often used in when the dog is kept outdoors in the garden and on areas around a farm where the dog guards the possessions of the owners, against unwanted or unexpected people or animals. A doghouse is made of insulating material (often wood), padlocked, to prevent loss of heat except for an opening front where the dog will enter. The roof is almost always waterproof material. The roof of the doghouses is built to prevent snow or rain from collecting. Often the owner of the pet should be able to open the roof or take it off.
The term hut has many descriptions and we in South Africa refer to a Security Guard Hut or Security Guard House as a structure where security guards are placed for their shift and is located at entrances to buildings or other security developments. Security guard huts are made from various materials including wood and are sometimes referred to as a form of a wendy house.
The term Hut is also used to name many commercial stores, companies, and concepts. The name implies a small, casual venue, often with a fun and friendly atmosphere.
Examples include Pizza Hut and Sunglass Hut. Kiosks may be constructed to look like huts and are often found at parks, malls, beaches, or other public places, selling a variety of inexpensive food or goods.
Luxury hotels in tropical areas where guests are assigned to occupy their own freestanding structure sometimes call the structure a “hut”, though such huts typically bear little more than superficial resemblance to the traditional concept of a hut.
