Coyote Creek Outpost

Coyote Creek Outpost was auctioned at the Dreams Happen Gala Event in June, 2009. All proceeds were donated 100% to Rebuilding Together Peninsula (RTP).  RTP builds volunteer partnerships to rehabilitate homes and community facilities for low-income homeowners and neighbors (seniors, disabled, or families) so they can live independently in warmth and safety.

Tahoe Outpost

Tahoe Outpost gives kids the fun of a big, outdoor play structure in a small space. This large, 2-story Hexagon Climbing Tower with tongue & groove Roof has Rock Climbing all around, a Firepole, a Rope Net Ladder, a Turbo Tube Slide and an extra-long Drawbridge-style Ramp. 


Appropriately named  Castleland by the children, this elegant play structure looks like a magical castle amidst the beautiful gardens.  Cross-over the arched bridge to enjoy lunch at the custom picnic table with curved benches, then spend the afternoon swinging, climbing, sliding or just reading in a quiet corner.

Wizards Hideout

Every 2 years, Rebuilding Together Peninsula partners with 15 local architects and Barbara Butler to create unique, one-of-a-kind, theme playhouses. These playhouses are displayed at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, CA, for 3 weeks and then auctioned to the highest bidder during the "Dreams Happen" Gala event.  100% of the proceeds raised from auctioning the playhouses are donated to Rebuilding Together Peninsula, an organization that builds volunteer partnerships to rehabilitate homes & community facilities for low-income, elderly and/or disabled people. Barbara Butler Artist-Builder Inc. has participated in this wonderful playhouse auction for the past 10 years.  

Atherton Castle

Atherton Castle appeared in Architectural Digest and elicited a huge response from readers. The three-color scheme of Ochre, Forest Green and Barn Red of this redwood play structure holds enormous appeal for kids and adults alike. This is the 1st of 5 versions made over the years (see Fort Bethesda & Atherton 5).
