Make Your Kid's Childhood Magical by Building a Playhouse in Your Yard

Do you want to do something special for your kid? If so, why not build him or her a playhouse in your yard? Having their own playhouse will certainly make their childhood a memorable one!  The following are a few tips for building a playhouse in your backyard:

A great idea for a unique playhouse is to build a roof hatch that provides some shade during the warmer months as well as protection from the rain. Build it so that you can fold it down for a sleepover. We also recommend building two levels along with a fixed ladder, so that your kids have a loft of sorts that they can read in. For some added fun, install a chalkboard wall. The following are the materials you’ll need:

  • 2×3 boards
  • 2×4 boards
  • 2×6 boards
  • 8’ decking
  • A 4×8 sheet of plywood
  • Shiplap siding
  • Two 4” gate hinges
  • 10’ polycarbonate roofing panels
  • 2-1/2” wood screws
  • 1” hex-head screws and neoprene washers
  • Two bolts
  • Framing square
  • Drill
  • Reciprocating saw
  • Sander
  • Hammer
  • Jigsaw
  • Paio pavers
  • Nails
  • A level
  • Shims
  • Exterior paint
  • Chalkboard paint
