TLC'S "PLAYHOUSE MASTERS" CLIMBS INTO IMAGINATIVE SPACES
Series premiere featuring Steph Curry and family airs Tuesday, August 23 at 10/9c
Every child's wish is to create their own fictional world, and a whimsical playhouse is the perfect setting for their ideas to come alive. Tyson and Audy Leavitt create the most elaborate, over-the-top playhouses out of their family-run shop called "Charmed Playhouses." We'll follow the couple from design to installation as they turn their cute clients' dreams into reality. PLAYHOUSE MASTERS premieres Tuesday, August 23 at 10/9c.
From Steph Curry's daughter who dreams of a princess pony playhouse, to Ali Landry's children who are eager for the ultimate birdhouse, the Leavitts' have no boundaries when it comes to new ideas. Meanwhile, Ryan Zimmerman's daughter wishes for a castle straight out of a storybook, and Alana De La Garza's children hope for a planetarium playhouse.
Tyson takes the lead in building the creative structures from the ground up, while his wife, Audy, brings life to the interiors, transporting children wherever they desire to go. A magic wand that controls lights and an interactive puzzle made of locks and deadbolts are among her portfolio of one-of-a-kind accessories. The Leavitt kids also have a job and it's the envy of kids everywhere - they are the official playhouse testers, who get to climb over each structure, making suggestions and giving their seal of approval.
But the challenges don't stop when the construction is done. They face a final, huge task - moving the playhouses from their workshop to the client's property. The team uses cranes, wide-load flatbeds, and spotting trucks to transport their finished work down winding highways, under low power lines and on muddy, slippery roads. But when it comes time for the big reveal, all of the hard work is worth it.
