The interior walls can be covered with the plywood sheet at any time once the roof is finished, building wrap (cover underlay) envelops the structure and the door and windows are installed.

Cover the interior walls with 7mm (11/32") or thicker plywood. Nail to the studs. Cut out for the door and windows where necessary and also cut the plywood sheets so that any join will be over a stud.
A standard 1200mm (48") wide plywood sheet will reach from the middle of the bottom plate to the middle of the top plate.

Finish with trim around the windows and door, around the top of the walls and around the bottom of the walls (baseboard, skirting).
Use 20mm x 20mm (3/4"x 3/4") wood around the windows and 50x25 (1x2) wood for the rest.

That's it!

A bit of paint, a few curtains, a piece of furniture and the kids have their own private retreat.

Final note. Wind: secure roof against upliftA playhouse is usually tucked away in a sheltered part of the garden without any real concern about the wind, and because the playhouse is a heavy and solid structure without much height, it is highly unlikely that it is going to blow away under normal conditions.
If the playhouse is situated in a windy area and there are concerns, then additional securing measures should be taken. The playhouse will need to be fastened against uplift, from the footings to the roof.
1.) Concrete a pile or post into the ground under each corner and fasten to the bottom plate with a metal strap or similar type of fastener. (This doesn't apply to concrete floors).
2.) At each corner fasten the bottom plate to the stud with a metal strap or similar type of fastener.
3.) At each corner fasten the stud to the top plate with a metal strap or similar type of fastener.
4.) At each corner fasten the top plate to the rafter with a metal strap or similar type of fastener.
