Playhouse Ideas / May 15, 2018 / Apolline Lajoie
They will take pride knowing that they are the ones caring for them. There is a porch which spans the front of the house and is covered so your children can sit on it even if its raining. A chimney and dormer windows complete this cottage playhouse adding that last realistic touch. This beautiful playhouse will add the charm you are looking for in your backyard. The wall panels for this playhouse come already attached with pre-primed siding. This means that all you have to do is paint it any color you desire.
Playhouse Sizes Have you consider the size of the playhouse you would like? Obviously the usable space in your garden is a significant factor when deciding the size of your playhouse as is the number of children you are catering for. Types of Playhouse The first type is a traditional wooden playhouse which sits on the ground. These are either single storey playhouses or double storey playhouses which generally have an internal ladder or stairs to access the top floor. The second type is the tower playhouse and are supported by wooden legs.
After that its a matter of simply attaching the 2x6s together with galvanized nails. Ill want a smooth surface on the playhouse floor for my kids to walk on so that means laying down some plywood on the 2x6 floor joists. A couple 4x8 sheets of outdoor plywood should do the trick. Building the Playhouse Walls Building walls for a playhouse is pretty much the same method carpenters use to build a house. Using simple 2x4 studs Ill lay the boards out on the ground and create each wall as a separate unit. Then with some help from a friend Ill raise the completed walls vertically and nail the corners together... just like people used to do when building barns.
