The Dixon Woodworking Family

Dixon Woodworking is a small family owned and operated company founded in 1980 in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley.  The Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouse is a unique creation, inspired by our oldest grandson who dreamed of playing on a real pirate ship.  Together our family has taken this idea and designed a one-of-a-kind  Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouse. 

Our own master craftsman build each Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouse with exceptional precision and quality. Every part is hand sanded and hand pained to provide a long lasting realistic looking ship, making each one a piece of art.  Intricate details encompass every inch of the playhouses – from a hand painted finish to gold scrolls, 3D carved trims and elegant accents.  We believe quality and safety go hand in hand.  Our Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouses are made from high quality materials making them built to last with low maintenance.  The floors are designed for all weather with a textured boat vinyl.

Exclusive to our Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouse is a sound system designed by our very own computer engineer.  Real cannon sounds, crashing waves, seagulls, or your favorite hits drift from the speakers – taking your Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouse to a whole new level.  Our sound system is simple to use, requiring only the “Key” / USB drive (included with every playhouse).  This special Key holds all of your music and sound effects.

Each Pirate Ship Playhouse is made in prefinished sections. They are completely assemble in our shop for quality assurance and then re-assemble on site by the same master craftsmen who built it. We intentionally designed our playhouses to be taken apart in a few hours, making it simple to move to a new location if needed.

Your yard can providing a safe and fun place to play, with an exquisite Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouse that inspires creativity,  encourage exploration, learning, independence, and promotes exercise.  Enjoy hours of fun as a family rain or shine!  Pirate Ship Playhouses can engage young children’s imagination for hours of play, with a new adventure everyday.

As a large family of 10 we truly believe in the importance of spending time together – that’s why we created the Pirate Ship Playhouse.  In our own yard we created a courtyard area complete with 1 Luxury Pirate Ship Playhouse, 1 Deluxe Pirate Ship Playhouse, a Tiki Hut, and large sand box.  It’s become an area where we can have fun together no matter what the weather is like.  You will find us having BBQ’s, roasting marshmallows, relaxing in the evening sun, or having a water fight.  Our vision is for all families to have a place like ours to make memories.  A place where you can be a kid, no matter what your age.
