Outdoor Playhouse / May 8, 2018 / Arlette Deziel
Here you will find out about what it takes to execute the best playhouse plans and build a playhouse that considers the safety of your kids and the beautiful look of your yard. First you would have to consider the area on which you are going to build your kids playhouse. If your land is uneven then that would not be the best area to build a playhouse upon. If your yard is uneven then you would have to ensure that you level the area well before you build the playhouse. The more even the piece of land is the easier it would be to build the playhouse and you would also be able to make it more stable with proper support.
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.
Building a playhouse from playhouse plans purchased over the internet for your kids is much like building a shed for yourself except it is much fancier and safer because you know your children will be playing in it. If done with the right frame of mind it could be a family project. You could get as much excitement and fun out of creating the playhouse as your kids will have playing in it. To get you started in the right direction here are the basics to help you build a playhouse for your kids. * The first step is to choose a playhouse plan for your project and the best advice here is to include your kids.
