For christmas this year my 13 year old son decided that he wanted to build a diner for his little brothers. I was terrified, but decided to take the plunge.
In addition to the actual structure, i made felt food and a set of salt and pepper shakers.
The diner is made of 1/2 inch ply wood with a fabric roof. Its hard to tell from the pictures, but there is a speaker for orders. We just drilled a bunch of holes and painted them.

This enitre project including wood, nails, paint, fabric and felt cost about $60. This entire structure is made if 1 piece of 1/2 inch ply.
