Description
Plans and step-by-step instructions on how to build a Wendy house (a girls playhouse)

I have had these Wendy house plans and instructions available online for some time.
It has proven to be a very popular project. Many people have built it, and many
have been good enough to send in photos of their handiwork.

This 29 page PDF downloadable file contains two versions of the Wendy house project (Wendy house plans with step-by-step instructions),
both versions are the same except one is in imperial (ft and inches) and the other in in metric (mm).
There are clear plans, instructions, and drawings.

The Wendy house is an ideal small playhouse for young girls.
With a bit of imagination, customized touches can be added to the Wendy house to create a unique and special environment.
The floor area of the house is 48″ x 87″ (1200mm x 2170mm)
with a 28″ (700mm) covered deck along the front, also incorporating a handrail.
The doorway is 46″ (1150mm) high and 24″ (600mm) wide. There are two windows.
The roof is a 45 degree pitched roof, giving ample headroom inside and there is a lean-to roof over the front deck.
