Building the Playhouse Roof While the playhouse floor and wall construction seems fairly straight forward I think that the roof framing is going to be a little more complicated. Depending in which climate you live a playhouse roof will get hit with rain snow and the sun not to mention a few kids climbing on top of it even though they were told not to. So Im going to try my hand at a little construction carpentry and make a gabled roof. Thats what most of the playhouse plans call for anyway so Ill take on the challenge.
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.
Building a playhouse from playhouse plans purchased over the internet for your kids is much like building a shed for yourself except it is much fancier and safer because you know your children will be playing in it. If done with the right frame of mind it could be a family project. You could get as much excitement and fun out of creating the playhouse as your kids will have playing in it. To get you started in the right direction here are the basics to help you build a playhouse for your kids. * The first step is to choose a playhouse plan for your project and the best advice here is to include your kids.
