Playhouse Design / May 19, 2018 / Nicolette Sirois
You probably have one or two little helpers who would love to help you with this activity. The fun part is next because you can choose many different styles of playhouses. There are many different styles of playhouse from traditional cottages or Victorian houses to log cabins or pirate playhouses. What tickles the fancy of your children and would look great in our backyard for at least several years? Lastly begin to think about the decor or accessories that can be added to your playhouse that could enhance the style. Whether the wooden playhouse is built from scratch or purchased your family can have a great time by looking for accessories at garage sales discount stores hardware stores or on-line that can complement the playhouse theme.
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.
Wooden playhouses tend to cost around ten percent more than plastic playhouses however they do tend to be a much larger to make up for the additional cost giving equal or even better value for your money. Wooden playhouses are practical and more durable than plastic ones as plastic playhouses fade and deteriorate over time whilst wooden ones may be treated with wood stain meaning that they last for years and years. Lets be honest here wooden playhouses are fine-looking as they look more traditional and when painted beautifully can look more like a home in the garden.
