Some people like to move the playhouse in and out so that their kids can enjoy it the whole year round. If you have the same idea then you will also need to make sure that the playhouse is of the right size so that it can nicely fit into your living space. Height Of Playhouse Different playhouses have different heights. Some can barely fit a toddler while a few others can take in an adult with not much of a problem. Therefore consider the height of the outdoor playhouse before buying. If a playhouse has a low roof your kids might be bumping their heads against the doorway after barely a year.
A wood floor kit is also included so that the floor of your playhouse is not earthen. The working windows include a screen and are made out of Plexiglass mounted in aluminum frames. LP Smart Side wood is the material of choice for this playhouse. It is a material which is weather safe durable and environmentally friendly. All playhouse pieces are treated with SmartGuard to increase their resistance to things such as rot and mold. This is a lightweight material which makes it easy to handle when assembling. A 50-year limited warranty is covers each piece.
The sixth step to build a playhouse is to sheath the walls with plywood or oriented strand board (OSB). The easiest way to do this is to attach the plywood while the walls are laying down on the subfloor. However it is critical you square the walls before applying and attaching the plywood. If you use cedar plywood it will need stain to protect it if you choose not to cover it with an exterior siding. Continue by standing the walls up on the subfloor and attach the walls together. Dont forget to attach a top plate to the top of the walls...this gives it strength to hold up the roof. Repeat for inside walls.
