Mum-of-five creates a PALACE for her youngest daughter and grandchildren

An Australian mother-of-five has built a two-storey cubby house palace for her youngest daughter and grandchildren using products she purchased off Facebook marketplace.

Megan Grace Elliott, 47,  who lives in Bowral, NSW, was inspired to create a children’s mansion in her backyard after her eldest children began having their own kids.

‘They would need the space to play and I didn’t want them to argue over too little space. We only have princesses at the moment with two-year-old Elora and nine-month-old Ariah. There is another due in April 2021,’ she told FEMAIL.

Megan’s youngest daughter Willow Grayce Elliott, seven, helped put the cubby houses, slides, swing and monkey bars together and was very excited to play in them.

‘We bought them from a garage sale. They were all different coloured timbers so I had a vision of what I wanted it to look like and the plan was set,’ she said.

‘I joined the three together using pieces of timber and used the A-frame from the first house. Both large Bunnings houses were picked up for $500 each and the front smaller one for $60.

‘Nothing is inside yet as we will build kitchens and furniture for it. It took a week in total to join and paint. We still need to put gardens in and around them.’

She was looking for a project to help build strength in that arm again when the castle idea was born.          

‘My daughter Willow Grayce loves to be outside all day and the delight on her face was all the thanks we needed,’ she said.

‘One house will become a dress up room filled with princess dresses and mirrors and the other a cafe and cooking play area. We have big ideas for the inside now that summer is near.’

‘This is truly amazing. I’m wondering why my family never made me one of these,’ joked one woman.

‘I would love to move into this. What a job you’ve done!’ Said another.

A third added: ‘This has to be a little kid’s dream come true’.
