In 2016, Rachel’s seven-year-old daughter, Olivia, was diagnosed with autism and was advised that it would be best for her to have her own personal space that she could go to whenever she was overwhelmed by emotions. This is the story of Rachel and Oliva’s BillyOh Peardrop Extra Playhouse.
What made you purchase from Garden Buildings Direct?
“We asked around for recommendations from friends and one of our friends had purchased a smaller version for her little girl and seeing the pictures I knew it would be ideal and just what we were looking for,” Rachel says.
How are you finding the building now?
“She loves it and spends lots of time in there and has even asked if she can sleep in there one night.”
How did you decorate it?
“Olivia was adamant that it had to be painted pink and I’m sure if she had her way it would have been bright pink all over but I managed to persuade her to have 2 different shades. We filled it with bean bags and lots of fairy lights and she loves it!”
