Kelsey, 30, said she and husband Noah, 33, did not have a special place in their home for their daughter Reese to play so they decided to build one.

The couple say they used mostly material they found around the house to build the playhouse for their daughter, who will be two next month, in September.

Kelsey reckons the entire project cost around USD 500 (GBP 410).

The proud mum said it took 10 days to complete the playhouse, with its own daybed, cooker, fitted carpet and window box.

Kelsey told Newsflash: “The space under our stairs was wasted space so we figured we could use it.

“Construction took about 10 days. We had a lot of leftover material that we found under our stairs, roofing and carpet.

“After buying paint, drywall and wood, the whole thing cost about USD 500.”

She added: “We didn’t expect the video to become so popular.

“The biggest question we got was ‘what are we going to use it for after she grows out of it’.

“Who knows, maybe a dog house or make some adjustments and make it a wine cellar.

“Reese loves it she was so surprised and didn’t know what to make of it when she saw it! It’s now her favourite place to play in the house.”

Kelsey told Newsflash: “My husband and I both love renovating and remodelling.

“It all started with me moving into his house six years ago when we renovated it together.

She added: “Then from there we just kept going. We flipped a few houses as well as fixed a few homes up and turned them into rental properties.”
