What do you get when some of Australia’s finest architects and construction companies get together and build cubby houses. You get the coolest cubby houses in the street. If you’re obsessed with keeping up with the Jones’, you can out-do them buy getting one of these. But history says they won’t come cheap.
At the 2016 Melbourne Flower Show, this years entries in ‘The Cubby House Challenge’ are looking uber cool – but the truth will be determined by the kids. That’s right, a batch of children will be dispatched into the cubby house kingdom and it is they which will determine which is the coolest.
This is all part of a fund raising for the charity Kids Under Cover – a not‑for‑profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness. A fitting charity for a cubby house competition.
If your family wants one, get all your gold coins together and be there for the auction this Sunday. History shows however that some of these cubby houses will sell for many thousands of dollars, so be prepared to pay a premium price, but of course you will be getting the coolest cubby house in the street, that’s for sure.
