The cardboard cottage

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again – we just love our community and getting involved. That in mind, when The Bear Creek School approached us for a procurement item for their annual auction, needless to say we were thrilled! Almost as soon as we decided to accept we started to consider what we could offer up for the auction block. We tossed a few ideas around; an office tour, a custom rendering, pony rides for the kiddos, but nothing really had that pizzaz we were looking for.  Finally we landed on auction gold (or at least we think so.)

the Cardboard Cottage

Say hello to the GHA  cardboard cottage! Once we came up with the idea Eric Drivdahl went to work designing this just over 20 sq. ft adorable cottage. Features; two rooms, a doggie dog, a mail slot, window-sill, slanted roof and tons of windows. Plus the whole thing is designed with a slide and lock feature so it’s super easy to take apart and put back together (bonus!).

Check out these picts of us putting it together in the GHA back room/kitchen.

Without the full roof so you can see the inside better.

Head on over to The Bear Creek School auction on March 24th and make a bid on the cardboard cottage. If you win, we would LOVE it if you sent us picts of your little one playing in it!
