Re-assembling the playhouse

Step 18. Put it all back together again.

By now you have already assembled the playhouse once, so second time around shouldn't be a problem.

Most important is to ensure that the floor is made level. It may need digging in parts, or packing up in parts, but make sure it is level. Secure it to the ground - perhaps with a couple of stakes hammered into the ground and nailed to the skids.
Also... once the playhouse is fully assembled, fasten the walls to the skids and end joists with a dozen or so pieces of 6" (150mm) long galvanized metal strap, just to make sure a gust of wind can't pick the playhouse up and drop it in another part of the yard.

Finally, fix a length of 2" x 2" (50mm x 50mm) galvanized angle flashing along the roof ridge.

plywood playhouse half finished
Hello there,
First of all thanks for posting the plans for this project on the web for all to use. The friends kids love it when they come round for the garden parties etc.
It is quite a lot of work and took me a whole week to complete ... more and photos

plywood playhouse
Hi, I built the plywood playhouse from these plans: Just finished a couple days ago.
I don't recommend this project for someone with no prior carpentry experience as there are a number of cuts that require angled mitre cuts and some of the plywood cuts are really long. more and photos
