FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COOL COTTAGES CAPTURE CHILDREN'S IMAGINATION
New company provides fun filled fantasies houses for all ages.
(Indianapolis, IN- August, 2003) – Cool Cat Cottages has introduced a new line of theme related playhouses for all ages. They currently have nine styles including a School House, Drive Thru Restaurant and Ranger Station. The playhouses are designed with durability in mind, backed by a 3 year warranty which seems unheard of in this particular market. The houses are built to the Universal Building Code in miniature which means all playhouses have a frame and inner and outer walls built with 2x2 studs 12" on center and painted with quality Sherwin Williams exterior paints. Each playhouse sits on a weather treated base with finished wood flooring. The interior walls are made from masonite board which can be painted, wall papered or used as a dry erase board for kids to draw on. All of the houses come completely finished inside and out and can be fully customized for the consumer.
Located out of Indianapolis, they ship to consumers and retailers throughout the United States. The homes come in panels with all the hardware necessary for two people to put together in a small amount of time; usually one full day or a weekend depending on the unit size. Since every playhouse is built to order it, takes approximately 4 weeks for delivery. The play houses can be altered for disabled children as well as adults who wish to use them.
"After looking for a couple years for a playhouse for our kids and finding high priced, small units that didn't appear to be durable, we built our own." Rebecca Dixon continues, "We knew there was a niche out there for a quality product that the average homeowner could afford. The play houses range in style and price and have even been purchased as garden sheds, pool cabanas, teen getaways and dog houses."
Their best selling model, "The Olde Towne Firehouse" is scheduled to go into the #1 rated children's museum in the nation as ranked by Child Magazine. The Children's Museum of Indianapolis will showcase the best selling model in late September, just in time for the "Raise the Roof" exhibit. It will be on display on into November and will be given away with the proceeds going to The Children's Museum.
Always community driven, Cool Cat Cottages recently gave away another playhouse in partnership with Eagle Custom Builders to the Council on Child Abuse of Southern Ohio. The structure was voted as one of the most popular by the children and parents bidding on the play houses.
