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.

Granted this is a simple version of how to build a playhouse but with a good set of playhouse plans the process will be step-by-step and much more detailed.
