Floor - 1800mm x 1800mm (6ft x 6ft); Height inside - 1850mm (74"); Height overall - 2100mm (7ft);

This is a very sturdy playhouse, constructed more along the lines of a real house so it will last for years. The roof design allows for storage space in the eaves, perfect for storing books, toys etc. and to help keep the floor area uncluttered.

All the framing lumber, walls and roof are made using 100x50 (2x4) stock. 100x50 (2x4) is a very common size lumber and is readily available at most lumber yards. In some cases it can be less expensive than a smaller stock size, however you can use a smaller size framing lumber such as 75x50 (2x3), as long as you make the necessary adjustments to achieve the same overall dimensions.

The exterior covering (both walls and roof) is covered with a cement fibreboard, a horizontal lap siding (clapboard, weather board) that is increasingly out-performing its lumber counterpart. The roof and walls are of the same material purely as a convenience.

Cement fibreboard siding is now very obtainable and its popularity is growing fast. It is user-friendly, very strong, resistant to fires, insects and rot, and looks good. More about where to obtain it can be found in the 'Lumber and materials information' page.
