Playhouse Plan / May 26, 2018 / Nicolette Sirois
If you have a lot of space then choose a place close to your house to keep an eye on the kids in a shady location to keep the childrens playhouse cool in the summer months on a flat piece of soil for easier leveling of the foundation and close to electrical source if you plan to have electricity to the playhouse. Once the location is finalized you need to determine the size of the outdoor kids playhouse. Playhouses come in many different sizes but typically they are between 6 ft - 12 ft in length and width. The height of the kids play house is generally 10 ft - 12 ft but will depend upon if you plan on having a loft on the second level.
Decking and Sheathing Next comes the most rewarding part of the project: adding plywood panels to the roof (decking) and the walls (sheathing). For roof decking most playhouse plans call for 1/2" plywood panels that Ill simply nail down on to the rafters. Getting at the panels to nail them down might be a little tricky though. Some people suggest you go at them from inside the playhouse - with a step ladder poking up between the rafters. Then after each panel goes down Ill come down move my ladder and go back up for the next section.
A large unused yard space would sure sound like a prudent choice to construct a playhouse for kids. But for some reason the playhouses that are readily available in the market dont quite cut it. At times these ready made play houses look garish and spoil the beautiful look of your garden. Now if you are a person who doesnt wish to spoil your yards look with such garish looking plastic playhouses then you would have to have a fail proof playhouse plan that you can use to build your play house. Even after getting the best and free playhouse plans there are certain things that you would have to keep in mind.
