Dad builds a playhouse for his daughters, and we want to live in it

Adam Boyd is definitely in the running for a father of the year award!

The Michigan dad-of-two has only gone and made the most amazing playhouse for his little girls. 

Feeling he should do something special for his princesses, Avery and Violet, Adam got to work on the amazing creation in his back garden. 

The playhouse, or should we say, two-storey house of dreams, was completely constructed by the dad, and can only be described as AMAZING.

Having a play-gym attached to the side with a swing, slide and rock-climbing wall, the 24-foot house also includes a kitchenette, chalkboard, seating and picnic area!

The seating area alone includes a beautiful couch and velvet chair, with a beautiful rug to compliment the wall colours which were picked out by the little girls. 

Sharing his creation to Facebook, Adam stated: "Here is the playhouse I built for my daughters… I would love to do it again for another family to enjoy!"

"I am absolutely blown away that this has gotten so much attention! I feel it's only right to credit my little sister for the amazing photos – 'Flashes of Life photography' Thank you!"

While the post has garnered A LOT of attention, many dads have been sharing their creations too, and we have to admit, we're seriously impressed.

Most of these we would actually live in ourselves!

We're definitely taking some inspiration from these right now… tools at the ready – it might take us a couple of years, but we'll surely get there!
