Playhouse Plan / May 7, 2018 / Apolline Lajoie
Wooden playhouses tend to cost around ten percent more than plastic playhouses however they do tend to be a much larger to make up for the additional cost giving equal or even better value for your money. Wooden playhouses are practical and more durable than plastic ones as plastic playhouses fade and deteriorate over time whilst wooden ones may be treated with wood stain meaning that they last for years and years. Lets be honest here wooden playhouses are fine-looking as they look more traditional and when painted beautifully can look more like a home in the garden.
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.
There you have it a playhouse built by you with playhouse plans from the internet.
