Indoor Playhouse / May 26, 2018 / Nicolette Sirois
Youve decided that you want to buy a wooden playhouse for your children. You know that this is something that will encourage them to expand their imaginations. They could find themselves pretending they are in the middle of the woods in their log cabin getting ready to go fishing or in a pretty cottage getting ready to have their friends over for a tea party. Your children are going to spend countless hours enjoying their playhouse. What Are the Benefits? The answer is that there are many. A wooden playhouse is going to be an attractive feature to add to your backyard.
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.
If you desire to build some of the more complex constructions that are available on the playhouse market today you should realize that you can always hire a carpenter in order to complete the task of building your playhouse. When you hire a professional to help you construct professionally designed plans for your playhouse you can be sure that the results will be more than satisfying in the end. In fact hiring a carpenter to complete the building process of your playhouse is likely one of the easiest ways to complete the job of building this type of construction overall.
