If you are building your playhouse on your own though you should certainly keep in mind that the type of theme you select may affect the complexity and difficulty inherent in the building process of the playhouse itself. If you are considering building your playhouse yourself you should definitely keep in mind the fact that there are a variety of different playhouse plans available on the market today that can make the process of building your playhouse incredibly simple. When you choose a plan that clearly lays out the process of constructing your house you can be certain that you will be able to complete the task using your own carpentry skills even if you do not have a very advanced knowledge about the art of woodworking.
Thus if you want something that your kids can enjoy for a few years or more you will need to look for a taller playhouse that can accommodate your growing kids. Playhouse Theme Some themes are more girl-oriented that boys might find it a little boring. So if you have both sons and daughters a more gender-neutral theme may work best. Playhouses that have a little of everything with different theme on each wall can also encourage both girls and boys to play together. Playhouse Extensions Some playhouses come with a slide climber and/or swing set.
Take height measurements of your children. According to the growth charts put out by the Center for Disease Control the average (50 percentile) height of both males and females for a 5 year old is about 43 inches 50 inches tall for an 8 year old and almost 60 inches for a 12 year old. Take into consideration whether you want the playhouse to be used only when your children are pre-Kindergarten or if the playhouse will be used beyond elementary school. Deciding this in advance will help you choose the size of the playhouse. One youve decided upon the size of the playhouse get some rope and stakes and begin to lay out where the playhouse will be.
