Indoor Playhouse / May 26, 2018 / Nicolette Sirois
If you are building your playhouse on your own though you should certainly keep in mind that the type of theme you select may affect the complexity and difficulty inherent in the building process of the playhouse itself. If you are considering building your playhouse yourself you should definitely keep in mind the fact that there are a variety of different playhouse plans available on the market today that can make the process of building your playhouse incredibly simple. When you choose a plan that clearly lays out the process of constructing your house you can be certain that you will be able to complete the task using your own carpentry skills even if you do not have a very advanced knowledge about the art of woodworking.
Next you would have to ensure that the materials being used are sturdy enough to ensure that the structure of the playhouse is safe for your kids. It would be wise if you could choose proper wooden beams to construct the playhouse with. Make certain that there are enough beams and pillars to support the walls and the ceiling. The last thing you need after executing a good playhouse plan is for the actual playhouse to cave-in. You would also have to consider your childrens preferences. There is no point building a playhouse that you like and not one that your kids like.
Building the Playhouse Floor After clearing and leveling a spot in the yard most playhouse plans have me dive into building the floor. 2x6 treated lumber arranged in a grid-like pattern (joists) seems to be the favored choice of materials for this part of the construction the same way its used in building floors for real houses. I can build the floor right on top of the spot I cleared in the yard but Ill probably put down a tarp first to keep the boards dry while I work on them. Building a floor thats square at each corner will take some careful measuring and maybe a carpenters square to make sure everything is lined up.
