When I was a kid I had a Sesame Street playhouse, and it was badass. It was so badass, in fact, that one night two car thieves used it as a hideout from the cops. Didn't work for them, but it did work for me, at least until a giant nest of yellow jackets took up residence in the corner. If you, too, fondly remember the childhood sanctum of your favorite playhouse, swing by Stonebriar Centre in Frisco to see the kid mansions of the 3rd Annual Project Playhouse. Designed by "three of the finest home builder teams in the Greater Dallas area," these fantasy playhomes are big enough for adults to enjoy too. Check them out from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays through May 3, after which the playhouses will be raffled off for charity. Visit project-playhouse.org.
