Playhouse today, poolhouse tomorrow.

Today, this playhouse is a place for Jamie Morjig and her friends to play at being grown-up. But when Jamie graduates from tea parties to pool parties, the playhouse will become a poolhouse the whole family can enjoy.

From the ridge line forward, the little building is a 1/6-scale replica of the family's two-story house. The exterior is clad in fiberboard siding, stone veneer, and fish-scale shingles. Inside, tongue-and-groove pine covers stud walls. Clear acrylic in the lower windows stands up to children's roughhousing.

Underneath the 8- by 13-foot painted plywood floor, drain lines await future connection for sink and toilet.

Working weekends for three months, owner Tom Morjig and a friend built the structure for about $1,000.
