Outdoor Playhouse / May 19, 2018 / Lundy Racine
Your children will spend hours enjoying their Wood Pennifield cottage playhouse. This is a playhouse that is realistic yet has a whimsy quality about it. This miniature house comes complete with a door sized for your children and shutter framed windows that actually work. This is a playhouse which will encourage your childrens imaginations to grow. Underneath each window is a flower box. Not only will flowers accentuate your childrens playhouse but they can also be used to teach your children responsibility. You can put your children in charge of planting their flowers and watering them.
By deciding on the type of building you desire to construct before you choose your plans you will be able to choose plans that perfectly match your desires. When it comes to the style of the playhouse you will be building you can choose from a variety of styles. You can either choose a Victorian-styled playhouse a playhouse modeled after a home a customized playhouse design or even a themed playhouse. Whatever you choose for your playhouse you should be aware that the type of style you choose may drastically affect the complexity of the building process.
The sixth step to build a playhouse is to sheath the walls with plywood or oriented strand board (OSB). The easiest way to do this is to attach the plywood while the walls are laying down on the subfloor. However it is critical you square the walls before applying and attaching the plywood. If you use cedar plywood it will need stain to protect it if you choose not to cover it with an exterior siding. Continue by standing the walls up on the subfloor and attach the walls together. Dont forget to attach a top plate to the top of the walls...this gives it strength to hold up the roof. Repeat for inside walls.
