Outdoor Playhouse / May 14, 2018 / Apolline Lajoie
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.
It is not something that would be an eyesore. Most playhouses are incredibly realistic which and you would be giving your children their own little home. They will delight in keeping house just like their parents do. Children love the outdoors and in a world where children can become consumed by video games and TV having a playhouse will ensure that your children are spending hours outside. It is a playhouse which is incredibly durable built so that it will not outgrow your children. It is incredibly safe and built to endure most weather. When your children outgrow their playhouse it can be used as a storage shed for your garden tools or lawn equipment.
After that its a matter of simply attaching the 2x6s together with galvanized nails. Ill want a smooth surface on the playhouse floor for my kids to walk on so that means laying down some plywood on the 2x6 floor joists. A couple 4x8 sheets of outdoor plywood should do the trick. Building the Playhouse Walls Building walls for a playhouse is pretty much the same method carpenters use to build a house. Using simple 2x4 studs Ill lay the boards out on the ground and create each wall as a separate unit. Then with some help from a friend Ill raise the completed walls vertically and nail the corners together... just like people used to do when building barns.
