Indoor Playhouse / May 26, 2018 / Nicolette Sirois
The eighth step to build a playhouse is to decide on the type of roof. Your playhouse plans should recommend the best type. Just follow the directions and youll be okay. Most common types of roofs are hip or gable. The easiest being a gable since it looks like a triangle and it allows for rain and snow to drain off the roof. The hip roof is a little more complicated because it has more angles with all sides sloping down to meet the walls. It allows for snow and rain to drain easily as well however it provides more overhang if thats what you are looking for.
Some people like to move the playhouse in and out so that their kids can enjoy it the whole year round. If you have the same idea then you will also need to make sure that the playhouse is of the right size so that it can nicely fit into your living space. Height Of Playhouse Different playhouses have different heights. Some can barely fit a toddler while a few others can take in an adult with not much of a problem. Therefore consider the height of the outdoor playhouse before buying. If a playhouse has a low roof your kids might be bumping their heads against the doorway after barely a year.
But for playhouses that are in the more affordable price range plastic models generally have easier assembly and maintenance. Size Of Playhouse Before you buy an outdoor playhouse you will need to take into consideration the size of your backyard. If you have a small space then you might need to settle for a smaller playhouse so that there is still space left for other things. Furthermore if you are thinking of getting other outdoor toys for your kids you will also need to reserve some space for those. The other consideration is whether you would be setting up the playhouse indoor for those colder months.
