Playhouse Plan / May 25, 2018 / Lundy Racine
Keep in mind that Im not looking to build one of those giant-sized playhouses - the ones that are so big you could rent them out as an apartment. Making a Playhouse Safe Lets talk safety first. Of course I dont want something that will fall over with the first gust of wind. Not that I let my kids play outside during a storm but whatever I build has to be pretty darn solid for me to feel comfortable letting them play there without me. From the plans Ive seen so far looks like the weight of the materials alone will be heavy enough to keep the playhouse standing upright without me having to mount it to anything.
Thus if you want something that your kids can enjoy for a few years or more you will need to look for a taller playhouse that can accommodate your growing kids. Playhouse Theme Some themes are more girl-oriented that boys might find it a little boring. So if you have both sons and daughters a more gender-neutral theme may work best. Playhouses that have a little of everything with different theme on each wall can also encourage both girls and boys to play together. Playhouse Extensions Some playhouses come with a slide climber and/or swing set.
Children often dont enjoy plastic playhouses as much as they seem more comparable to a toy than a real little house of their own. Plastic playhouses generally come prepackaged as several large pieces that need slotting together a light plastic playhouse can never be as sturdy as a solid as a wooden one and wont make the delightful garden feature and the same impact in your garden that a wooden wendy house would. A wooden playhouse is hand made by craftsmen and a very special decorative item in its own right.
