Playhouse Ideas / May 13, 2018 / Ambra Marquis
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.
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.
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.
