Finished the playhouse for my girls, they love it. I started it last fall with building the base. I was lucky to have a friend help lift and place the treated 6×6’s, they were heavy. So this spring it was the first outdoor project. I also had help from my sister who cut out the hearts and brother in law helped with the roof. My wife helped put up the walls and of course the kids helped paint and with general supervision. I guess it was a real team effort on this one. Oh, and there is storage underneath for some of my lumber.

Oh, awesome. What a great joint project! They’ll know forever that they helped Dad and Mom build their own playhouse. Perfect.

Glad to see it’s a playhouse for girls. After raising 2 of each (boys and girls, not playhouses), I can tell you that the fence you have there wouldn’t suffice for a boys “fort”. For the boys, I’d have had to put up a chicken wire enclosure around it and still put a net across the drop off!!

What a wonderful project, fun for the whole family and memories the girl’s will cherish for a lifetime.
