A wendy house is a type of temporary accommodation for domestic workers. It is typically erected on the employer’s property and is similar to a corrugated iron home. However, a wendy house is generally more pleasant to look at and is usually made of wood. It can also be used as a playhouse for children or as a dog kennel.

A traditional wooden wendy house is clad with pine boards. These are often sourced from local plantations, which have been replanted to allow indigenous species to recover. The cladding is very light and has little structural strength, but it is effective in keeping out the weather.

Another way to build a wendy house is on a concrete slab. This is more expensive, but it creates a strong and stable structure that can be used for habitation. It is a good option for sites with steep slopes or where the wendy house needs to be raised off the ground.


Although a Wendy house is often used as a playhouse for children, it can also be used as an office. This is possible because it has a door on either side and a small window on both sides, providing privacy and security for those using the space. The office can be fitted with shelves and cupboards to make it more comfortable and practical.

Despite being classed as temporary structures and not needing foundations wooden wendy houses are still subject to planning regulations. It is not uncommon for a company to build a wendy structure without planning permission because they know that it will catch up with them, possibly costing them money or forcing them to pull down the structure.

The most expensive option for cladding a Wendy house is Nutec, a man-made fibre cement board that looks like traditional wood but will take all the Cape weather can throw at it and last a lifetime. The boards are resistant to rot, pests, fire and water and can be painted like any other wall in your home.
