Looking to build a child's play barn

Not sure where to put this, so General is it!

Anybody know where to get some plans or material ideas? I'm sure I could throw something together, but I want to make sure it is solid and safe. I'm thinking something big enough to fit 32:1 size tractors and implements in, but also double as a toy box. I had something similar when I was a kid and it was about 3 feet deep, 4 feet wide, and 1.5 feet high. I'm not crazy about the hinged lid due to the weight and how easy it is to slam hands, legs, heads, etc. in it. I'm open to ideas...

I don't have plans, but keep one side open for access. No roof and no walls on that side.

Looking forward to seeing some pictures.


Short of cutting off a body part, the worst that can happen in woodworking is manufacturing really nice looking kindling. --- Quoted from lenaitch
