Thats good news. Getting Started - Make a Level Spot in the Yard Most playhouse plans start with choosing a good spot in the yard. That makes sense. This step seems to help set the stage for everything else that follows so it pays off to be careful and get this part of the project right first time out. Of course to avoid building a crooked playhouse Ill need to find a fairly level spot in the yard. This could be trickier than it seems. Even if I think a spot looks level chances are its not. I probably spend a good amount of time and energy just clearing and leveling a spot for the playhouse to sit.
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.
If you have a lot of space then choose a place close to your house to keep an eye on the kids in a shady location to keep the childrens playhouse cool in the summer months on a flat piece of soil for easier leveling of the foundation and close to electrical source if you plan to have electricity to the playhouse. Once the location is finalized you need to determine the size of the outdoor kids playhouse. Playhouses come in many different sizes but typically they are between 6 ft - 12 ft in length and width. The height of the kids play house is generally 10 ft - 12 ft but will depend upon if you plan on having a loft on the second level.
