Playhouse Design / May 26, 2018 / Nicolette Sirois
And when future grandchildren come around it can be converted back to all its previous glory as a playhouse. There are a million ways to make your playhouse yours alone. The outside can be painted in a variety of colors to reflect your childrens personalities. You can also stain the wood so that it has a more rustic and natural look if you prefer. You can paint the inside as well maybe add a mural or let your children create their own artwork on the walls. Things to Consider Before Buying To stay in great condition you will have to perform maintenance every few years on your wooden playhouse. You will need to refinish or repaint the outside to make sure that you protect it from the elements and continues to look fresh and not rundown. Most playhouse models will require some assembly.
Tower playhouses usually have a ladder. Need a Base for a Wooden Playhouse? You do need some variety of solid base for a childrens playhouse. Whilst most childrens playhouses come with an internal floor youll still need to provide a level base for it otherwise the walls of the playhouse might not align correctly. The easiest solid base to furnish is concrete paving slabs as six or eight large slabs can be enough to provide a big enough playhouse base are relatively cheap and quite straightforward to position.
The good news about making a gabled roof is that you can buy some pretty inexpensive hardware that will essentially line up the roof rafters where you need them to go. Galvanized joist hangers will solve a lot of my problems here when it comes to hanging the rafters. There are plenty of instructions around for learning how to build a roof - for any kind of house not just playhouses. So with the pre-made joist hangers and a few instructions I think Ill be able to figure out this part of the project without too much trouble.
