APPLE CRATE CUBBY HOUSES
Our original and beloved design, it’s where it all began for us – the Apple Crate Cubby! Made from food-grade apple crates sourced from local orchards, you can rest assured the timber is eco-friendly, untreated, and safe enough to eat off (bit awkward though).
The crate timber is sustainably-sourced, and you can opt for new or recycled or a combo of both. You can paint em or leave ‘em raw, either way they will weather beautifully and be a space for your family to enjoy for many years. As the apple crates are a set size, all the cubbies in this range are in multiples of this measurement – see below for measurements and prices.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
ROOF TYPE – The prices in the table above are for cubbies built with our standard flat roof. If you’re looking for a different aesthetic, a pitched roof option is also available for little and midi cubbies at the extra cost of:
- Little – add $170
- Midi – add $350
RECYCLED CUBBY HOUSES – Recycled materials are based on seasonal availability. Please chat with us if you’d like your cubby made from recycled materials.
EXTRA HEIGHT – We have set the internal height of our cubby houses at 150cm for a few reasons, one – kids won’t typically reach this height before they are ‘over’ (insert pre-teen eye roll) their cubby house days. And two – we personally think the proportions work best at this height. The cuteness factor is always a top priority!
The height does make it a bit tricky as an adult to stand up, so if you do plan on spending a bit of time in the cubby (and really that is the only reason to do it) you can add a height extension to bring the internal height up to 180cm. Chat to us about adding an extra 30cm to the height of your cubby.
CLEAR ROOF – We use a recycled corrugated iron for the roofing. With the inclusions of the doors and windows, we think this option lets enough light in, BUT, if you are someone who revels in sunlight, then we can look at a full or partial clear roof option. Chat to us.
ACCESSORIES – We have a large range of accessories including decking, awnings, bunting, planter boxes, letter boxes, furniture and other play equipment that can really give your cubby house POP and WOW. Check out our links below to peruse the fun.
CUSTOMISATION – Positioning of doors and windows, extras we don’t have listed, killer ideas you have – don’t hesitate to let us know. Much of our business has been built on the back of brilliant ideas from our friends and clients.
TRIBE CUBBY (as pictured in gallery above) – This is a package of Little Cubby with painted decking and verandah extension, stencil-painted cafe windows with extra wide servery ledge, second hinged window, 2 x painted timber awnings, front-painted planter box, and stencil-painted door.
