Indoor Playhouse / May 23, 2018 / Gallia Cote
There you have it a playhouse built by you with playhouse plans from the internet. Granted this is a simple version of how to build a playhouse but with a good set of playhouse plans the process will be step-by-step and much more detailed. Building a playhouse is more of an advanced woodworking project however dont let that scare you away from trying to build a playhouse for your kids. Your kids will love you for building it for them and your family will have fun working together building a playhouse that will last a lifetime.
The ninth step to build a playhouse is to install ceiling joists and rafters as per playhouse plans. Another option is pre-manufactured wood roof trusses. If you are using rafters instead of pre-manufactured wood trusses you will need to add a girder post to each rafter in the center to give it support. The tenth step to build a playhouse is to sheath the roof with plywood and decide upon a roof covering. Most plans will call for asphalt shingles or wood shingles but its up to you. Dont forget to apply felt before laying the shingles on the roof.
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.
