Outdoor Playhouse / May 19, 2018 / Lundy Racine
Type Of Playhouse Basically you have a choice between wooden and plastic playhouses. Generally plastic ones are less expensive although you can also get wooden playhouses at about the same price range. But such wooden playhouses will require additional weather-proofing before assembly as well as periodic maintenance to ensure that it lasts. This means if you want to settle for a wooden playhouse there is more work involved compared to a plastic one. Of course a wooden playhouse may give you a more natural look and those in the higher end of the market can end up looking like a real home.
Building the Playhouse Floor After clearing and leveling a spot in the yard most playhouse plans have me dive into building the floor. 2x6 treated lumber arranged in a grid-like pattern (joists) seems to be the favored choice of materials for this part of the construction the same way its used in building floors for real houses. I can build the floor right on top of the spot I cleared in the yard but Ill probably put down a tarp first to keep the boards dry while I work on them. Building a floor thats square at each corner will take some careful measuring and maybe a carpenters square to make sure everything is lined up.
An outdoor playhouse will be a fun filled place that belongs to them that every boy or girl will delight in. Young kids may have a terrific time simply playing around in the yard however a wooden playhouse is their own special place in which they are able to allow their imaginations to run riot. Kids timber playhouses will get them out of their bedroom or sitting in front of a computer game and out of doors into the fresh air. Theyll enjoy the physical exercise. When the children get older a good sized strong playhouse could work as their own individual exclusive hideaway where he or she can hide away from the rest of the household.
