The item up for bidding? A “nautical dream playhouse” complete with track lighting, scrubbed-oak floors and many other extras that’re an artisan hassle (and probably a kid’s dream) to scale down. The photo on CASA’s website doesn’t include the best part: a “sailboat” that seems to pop right out of the structure’s walls.
Builder Les Owens — one of many to donate services to the fundraiser — often works in the Park Cities. He got a kick out of the project, he said, as “building a fancy little playhouse is right along the lines of what I do anyway.”
