A walk through the neighborhood

  • Oct 2, 2008 at 2:02PM

Seeing the sights: Two-year-old Katie Smith, left, and her mother, Karen Smith, stroll through the Master Builders Care Playhouses located at Southeast Ridge Street, Center Boulevard and Southeast Kinsey Street in Snoqualmie. Nine playhouses were built at the site by members of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. Each of them are about 10 feet tall and 80 to 100 square feet - perfect for kids. The playhouses are open to the public until Aug. 5, when they will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to Master Builders Care, the Boys and Girls Clubs of King County and the Bellevue Boys and Girls Club. Playhouses include a fishing shanty, a tugboat and a survival hut. They cost about $10,000 each to build, with close to 35 people working on each playhouse. There is also a "Tweet of Dreams," which showcases birdhouses crafted by children in the Boys and Girls Clubs of King County. The Master Builders Care Playhouses are open 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday. For more photos, see page A12.
