Playhouse Plans

You're bound to find the ideal playhouse plans - from basic sheds with a few embellishments to miniature Colonial mansions sporting all the architectural details.  A few of these projects are for patient beginners with minor carpentry skills, others state that the projects are difficult and require a certain amount of skill.

Include the lucky child or children who will be the new "homeowners" - it's a great way to teach kids DIY basics, give them a feeling of accomplishment, and share a hands-on experience together. Plus, you'll be the coolest adult in the neighborhood.

An active imagination is essential for a childs health and development. In this age of TV and computer games, it is more important than ever before to get kids to play outdoors.

A playhouse can be built by anybody who is handy, no special tools are involved. The best books on building playhouses include detailed plans, a materials list and a list of tools that you may need. Some tools are nice to have, but most of the time you can get by with hand tools. Why not get a woodworking friend to help out? Get the whole family involved so that they feel they have an investment in the project. This may well be the start of a whole new hobby, now you have the confidence and skills to build a few outdoor woodworking projects too.
