Outdoor Playhouse / May 8, 2018 / Arlette Deziel
Your children will spend hours enjoying their Wood Pennifield cottage playhouse. This is a playhouse that is realistic yet has a whimsy quality about it. This miniature house comes complete with a door sized for your children and shutter framed windows that actually work. This is a playhouse which will encourage your childrens imaginations to grow. Underneath each window is a flower box. Not only will flowers accentuate your childrens playhouse but they can also be used to teach your children responsibility. You can put your children in charge of planting their flowers and watering them.
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.
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.
