“Our daughters were our inspiration,” explains Maria and Enrique Gonzalez of Valley-based Enrique’s Little Town Playhouse Builder. “The first playhouse was made for them, and they played and enjoyed it for over 20 years. Since then, we wanted all the children to experience the same joy and create great memories.”
The business is a family business—Enrique designs and builds the playhouses, their three daughters help with painting, sanding, installing the vinyl floor and drywall, and completing the final touches, and Maria assists with the administrative side of the company.
Launched in 2013, the company offers both playhouse models to choose from, as well as can customize to incorporate a client’s ideas.
They also are about giving back—Enrique’s Little Town Playhouse Builder has worked with Make-A-Wish to grant several wishes, including custom playhouse models. EnriquesLittleTown.com
