Are you interested in building your own playhouse? Are you curious about what it takes in order to build a playhouse? If you have ever seen the quality of an average playhouse but you did not like the construction or the design theme you may desire to build a more professional playhouse for your backyard. If you wish to build a professionally designed playhouse you should certainly consider purchasing playhouse plans in order to enhance the overall quality of your project. Before you purchase your plans you should be aware that there are a variety of different plans available on the market today. Before you choose your plans you should know that you can choose from many different designs as well.
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.
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.
