Playhouse Plan / May 14, 2018 / Apolline Lajoie
For the walls a lot of playhouse plans call for 4 x 8 sheets of T-111 tongue-and-groove plywood which should do a nice job of making the walls solid and weatherproof. I might also look into buying outdoor paneling with a decorative side - something to make the walls look more finished. Finishing the Roof I guess I havent decided yet exactly what Ill put down on the roof decking. Most playhouse plans call for the same thing thats on the roof of my house. roofing felt and asphalt shingles. That seems like a lot of work to me right now so I might shop around a little for some easier alternatives. Maybe a tin roof or some type of vinyl. Ill have to wait see about that. Final Playhouse Touches Well theres really no limit to what I can add for final touches - everything from window shutters to picket fences to really dress up the project. Most playhouse plans Ive seen have plenty of extras to make a simple playhouse pretty extraordinary. I have a feeling once I get the basic construction finished the extra touches might have to wait till next year.
There you have it a playhouse built by you with playhouse plans from the internet. Granted this is a simple version of how to build a playhouse but with a good set of playhouse plans the process will be step-by-step and much more detailed. Building a playhouse is more of an advanced woodworking project however dont let that scare you away from trying to build a playhouse for your kids. Your kids will love you for building it for them and your family will have fun working together building a playhouse that will last a lifetime.
Thus if you want something that your kids can enjoy for a few years or more you will need to look for a taller playhouse that can accommodate your growing kids. Playhouse Theme Some themes are more girl-oriented that boys might find it a little boring. So if you have both sons and daughters a more gender-neutral theme may work best. Playhouses that have a little of everything with different theme on each wall can also encourage both girls and boys to play together. Playhouse Extensions Some playhouses come with a slide climber and/or swing set.
