Here's a playhouse that will draw attention from your neighbors. Not just for its sheer size but also for the treasures that can be found inside.

Jason Harrington, President of HB Construction, said the point was to build something that no one else has seen before.

You can take that to the bank. This bank! The Bank Playhouse.

It comes with a vault door and a second floor so kids can hide all their secret stashes. It even comes with a scaled down version of a drive-thru bank teller window.

We'd recommend your kids stock the bank with Monopoly money first.

On deck we have a patio that will have two decks for kids to walk and play on along with swings, a trapeze, and a fireman's pole.

The rooftop will have walkways where kids can look out to the horizon, hence the name "Lookout".

The house is blue but is going green with the installation of a solar panel which will help power the fan inside to keep your kids cool during the warmer months.

Finally, we have a playhouse that will take your children to the stars.

The purpose of this playhouse is mostly meant for the imagination of your child to run wild and let their minds take them to the constellations of Aquarius, Ursa Major, and Hercules in the Magical Box of Stars.

Devendra Contractor, Principal of DNCA, says that constellations have a story attached to them.

"There's mythology attached to them. Each one of them has a story and we'd love for kids to read about those stories," he said.

These constellations will also be illuminating at night just like the stars.

Playhouse proceeds will help the 30% of New Mexico kids who live in households without enough food.

You can help contribute to help feed those children by buying a ticket for $10 to enter in a raffle and win the one-of-a-kind Butterfly House.
