Playhouse Plan / May 25, 2018 / Henriette Veilleux.
Buying them as a set may work out to be cheaper than buying them separately. They are also compact which saves on space. Hence if you are thinking of buying a playhouse you will also need to work out if your kids will need a climber slide or swing in the near future. If they do then an outdoor playhouse that has these attachments may be a better play set in your backyard. Ease Of Assembly Apart from the above factors you will also need to check on the ease of assembly. There is no point buying a playhouse which you cant put together because the instructions are too complicated or the parts dont fit. One good way to find out if a particular outdoor playhouse is easy to assemble or otherwise is to read up on consumer reviews. Popular outdoor playhouses usually have tons of reviews from parents and you can get a glimpse of the ease of assembly from there.
This summer its going to happen. Ive got plans to build a real playhouse in the backyard. Although my kids seem happy enough with the houses they make from cardboard boxes I want something that will last through the summer and hopefully next summer too. Plus I know the kids would go nuts to get a real playhouse this year. Ive checked out the ready-made playhouses that the big toy companies sell and boy do I really hate them. Aside from being pricey they just look trashy. Last thing I want is a big piece of plastic sitting in the middle of the yard.
But for playhouses that are in the more affordable price range plastic models generally have easier assembly and maintenance. Size Of Playhouse Before you buy an outdoor playhouse you will need to take into consideration the size of your backyard. If you have a small space then you might need to settle for a smaller playhouse so that there is still space left for other things. Furthermore if you are thinking of getting other outdoor toys for your kids you will also need to reserve some space for those. The other consideration is whether you would be setting up the playhouse indoor for those colder months.
Keep in mind that Im not looking to build one of those giant-sized playhouses - the ones that are so big you could rent them out as an apartment. Making a Playhouse Safe Lets talk safety first. Of course I dont want something that will fall over with the first gust of wind. Not that I let my kids play outside during a storm but whatever I build has to be pretty darn solid for me to feel comfortable letting them play there without me. From the plans Ive seen so far looks like the weight of the materials alone will be heavy enough to keep the playhouse standing upright without me having to mount it to anything.
