Outdoor Playhouse / May 8, 2018 / Arlette Deziel
Scour the internet and find the plan that suites you and your children. Play it safe and get their opinions and you will have nothing to lose. The second step to build a playhouse is to decide where you want to place the playhouse inside your yard. You may have to do some preparation work ahead of time like creating a level playing area for the playhouse to rest upon so it is stable. Make sure it is not located under any electrical wires or tree branches that could do some damage to it later. Furthermore make sure the site is in a higher area of the yard as to not have to worry about water damage later.
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.
Looking at some of the larger wood swing set kits this is more along the lines of what I had in mind but these are just too expensive to buy. That leaves me to build a something myself. So now Im looking at playhouse plans on the Web. I cant say Im very happy with what Ive found. Of course Ive checked out all the free playhouse plans first hoping to at least get an idea of whats involved with this kind of project. Its looking a little scary so far. Most plans seem to be written by carpenters who toss around construction terminology as if I were right there beside them on a job site. So Im off to do a little research in how playhouses are built so I can figure it out for myself.
