Playhouse Plan / May 24, 2018 / Gallia Cote
Children often dont enjoy plastic playhouses as much as they seem more comparable to a toy than a real little house of their own. Plastic playhouses generally come prepackaged as several large pieces that need slotting together a light plastic playhouse can never be as sturdy as a solid as a wooden one and wont make the delightful garden feature and the same impact in your garden that a wooden wendy house would. A wooden playhouse is hand made by craftsmen and a very special decorative item in its own right.
Decking and Sheathing Next comes the most rewarding part of the project: adding plywood panels to the roof (decking) and the walls (sheathing). For roof decking most playhouse plans call for 1/2" plywood panels that Ill simply nail down on to the rafters. Getting at the panels to nail them down might be a little tricky though. Some people suggest you go at them from inside the playhouse - with a step ladder poking up between the rafters. Then after each panel goes down Ill come down move my ladder and go back up for the next section.
The next thing to look at is the design of the kids outdoor playhouse. The look should be only confined by existing space spending budget and your childs desires! You might go for a modest cozy log cabin or perhaps a higher playhouse set with a slide right up to a smaller scale model of a castle complete with drawbridge and also towers. Definitely never find yourself caught up and purchase one thats far too vast for the garden! There still has to be breathing space in the backyard for the children to run about outside of the back yard playhouse plus room for the various family members to enjoy your garden likewise.
