Children are all spending a lot more time indoors at the moment and one dad has made it extra special for his daughters.

Thanks to their handy dad Scott Evans, six-year-old Mia and her two-year-old sister Daisy have their very own two-storey playhouse inside their home.

And it's not just any old playhouse. Scott, 31, spent weeks working on the project, at weekends and often into the early hours after his shifts at work.

The result is a two-storey house within their two-bed home - fitted with carpets, wallpaper and tiles and full of activities for the girls to enjoy.

There's a chalkboard, a toy box, a mini kitchen and a giant teddy to sit on in the book corner.

And if that's not enough, the pair have got their own guitar to have a go at, along with a giant pink TV and their Nintendo Switch inside it too.

Perhaps most impressive is the cost of the house, which reaches the ceiling of their living room. Scott, who got made it from pieces of scrap wood left at work, spent just £85 pulling the rest of the materials together - a fraction of what you'd pay to buy something similar.

It even has carpets and wallpaper

"The girls used to have a cardboard castle, but we decided to go bigger with this one," said Scott, from Royton, Oldham.

"I spent about £30 on materials, £20 on carpet, £15 on wallpaper, the paint was lying around at home and the tiles were about £20 from B&Q.

"It took hours of time building it after work but I had fun and my girls loved helping and playing."

One of the reasons Scott wanted to make the house was as a treat for his toddler Daisy, who needed an operation to repair a heart defect at the beginning of March.

"Even before Mia's school finished I was wanting to get it ready for them," said Scott, who works at National Tyres and Autocare.

"Daisy loves the little downstairs kitchen area but they both spend a lot of time in the house. They get the guitar out and can read and watch dvds in there. They absolutely love it."

Even mum Lucy, also 31, doesn't mind having the mammoth construction inside their living room.

"It's quite a long room so we have the settee and TV at one end and the playhouse is at the other," added Scott. "The wife just goes along with it really. She wouldn't be happy if it didn't look good but she's happy with how it's turned out."
