You know what Friday means!
New Handmade Holiday Plans!!!
After last weeks indoor playhouse plans, Jaime and I wanted to also create plans for you for a simpler, less expensive indoor playhouse option. We were both inspired by this playhouse for these plans.
For under $20 you can make this indoor playhouse!
I can just see my daughter covering this frame in sheets and "decorating" it herself!
Jaime and I purposely made this playhouse just less than 54" wide, so you could use 54" fabric to cover the side walls and roof easily (how about peel and stick velcro?).
And I adore how Jaime used a flat sheet to cover hers!
We've got you covered with the plans below - check them out - AFTER you go check out Jaime's building post here with LOTS more pictures!
Have an awesome weekend!!!
8 - 2x2, 8 feet long
2-1/2" pocket hole screws
2" finish nails
2 - 2x2 @ 37"
4 - 2x2 @ 44" (longest point measurement, one end cut at 30 degrees off square)
4 - 2x2 @ 23-1/8" (both ends cut PARALLEL at 30 degrees off square, long point to short point measurement)
5 - 2x2 @ 48"
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Build the two gable ends. You can use 1-1/2" pocket holes or 2-1/2" pocket hole screws and glue or countersink 2-1/2" screws. Jaime used nails at the top to attach together.
Now simply attach the two end frames together. You can use 1-1/2" pocket holes and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws and glue or countersink 2-1/2" screws through ends.
Jaime also added a chimney to the top for added detail.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
