Outdoor Playhouse / May 8, 2018 / Arlette Deziel
Youve decided that you want to buy a wooden playhouse for your children. You know that this is something that will encourage them to expand their imaginations. They could find themselves pretending they are in the middle of the woods in their log cabin getting ready to go fishing or in a pretty cottage getting ready to have their friends over for a tea party. Your children are going to spend countless hours enjoying their playhouse. What Are the Benefits? The answer is that there are many. A wooden playhouse is going to be an attractive feature to add to your backyard.
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.
Although you can find some already put together. It is essential that you feel comfortable assembling your playhouse. If youre not you always have the option of hiring someone who has a lot of experience in woodworking and building. This playhouse is not easily moved so make sure you choose a model which you will continue to enjoy over the years. The Infinite Possibilities of a Wooden Playhouse Imagining is such an important aspect of childrens childhoods. With their playhouse their imagination will expand as they role play and interact with the environment surrounding their playhouse. They will be able to spend even more time outdoors in the fresh air than inside watching TV. You children will enjoy taking on several personalities. They can be teachers will pupils or lumberjacks pretending to cut down trees. They can be firemen going to put out fires or moms caring for their babies.
