Wooden Playhouse




About: ...i am just an avarage guy with an regular job...and some crazy ideas... so live and let diy ;)

For the 2nd birthday of my niece i wanted to make something special what she could use several yaers, so i decided to build her a playhouse.

Inspired by my https://www.instructables.com/id/Wooden-3d-Wall-Des...

Unfortunately i broke my finger while working on the schindels but i could finish the house in time

Step 1: Building Framework + Windows

I used timber 6cm x 6cm for the frame and spruce planks.

Isanded the timber and softened the edges, so she couldnt harm on woodsplinters

For the roof i cutted planks on 20 cm lenght and halfrounded one side

I added some planks to cover the screws on the inside of the house

Step 2: Preparing the Pieces

so same work again

i bougt sprucewood 2x2 cm by a length of 150 cm, i cutted them randomly from pieces starting at 2 cm long and at least 8 cm.... it took me in total 110 meters of sprucewood, after cutting every piece i sanded every edge halfround... i needed in total a hole week with my dad to have enough pieces to start and sortet all in different buckets,... while i was in progress of the work i still had to make some more pieces, same ass the project before you have never enough when it comes to the end lol

Step 3: Mainwork

so glueing is on again

i randomly glued piece for piece and piece for piece......

Step 4: Transportation

2 weeks finally finished the hole work

    awesome! What inspired the small glued pieces?..the thousands you glued to the side. I was a bit confused on where they would be placed at first..it came out outstanding! any advice on the initial frame? And button pieces..think I'm gonna go for it and try it myself

    my advice build it strong because it will be very heavy weighted ;)... i would love to see your project when you have made it, please send me a photo when done
