In our current issue, we explored design for families, ranging from multi-generational households to couples with young children. For our Dwell Reports story, House Party!, we rounded up a handful of modern playhouses. A few readers commented on the pricetag of some of the designs, but get a load of Jaime's find for this Friday: $200,000 ultra-luxe playhouses for those with enough extra cabbage on hand to buy "bling for the yard." Read on for more on this story and to see what other current events caught our attention this week.

This week we've been busily (and excitedly!) prepping for Dwell on Design, which is just under one month away. Among the many events slated are our ever-popular tours of modern homes in Los Angeles, a keynote talk by Cradle to Cradle author William McDonough, and discussions with many more Dwell favorites on topics as far reaching as crafting beer to creating a kid-friendly abode. This week, we also welcomed a new addition to our magazine, designer Everett Pelayo, who shares his first Friday Find today: the lives of Quinnford and Scout.

Friday Finds 5.20.11

Whenever I played with Lego sets, there was inevitably a missing piece. Jaime stumbled upon a shop in Santa Cruz, CA, that I wish existed when I was a youngster: a place where replacement blocks can easily be purchased. If Legos aren't your speed, check out Miyoko's find, The Burning House, a blog featuring objects people would take with them if their house was burning. The picks range from the practical (passports and spectacles) to nostalgic (a collection of vintage Oscar Wilde books) to quirky (a Bumblebee Transformer). A quick poll around the Dwell office revealed that pets would be the number one thing saved. What would you bring? Family photographs? An heirloom design object? Leave your "saves" in the comment section—we'd love to know.
