This cottage style playhouse looks lovely in any garden. It has a central stable door with a diamond shape cut out in the top half and a letterbox in the bottom half. Also fitted to the door is a name plaque which really personalises a playhouse for your children. Either side of the door is an opening window each with a window box underneath which are great to get children involved in a bit of gardening. There is a diamond window in each apex and the playhouse is finished with a cedar shingled roof. Internally there is a 2ft platform on the right hand side which is protected by balustrade rails. The inside of the playhouse has also been painted white.

Specification of this Cottage Playhouse
Roof - Wood Shingles
The roof is built to withstand the English climate; 75mm x 50mm bearers are put across from side to side. Screwed to these bearers is 12mm external quality plywood covered with two layers of base waterproof membrane and then wooden cedar shingles, using galvanised staples. The felt is wrapped over the front and back and sealed behind the facia board; there is also a ridge board fitted along the top ridge, these boards can be either straight or shaped.
Sides - Option 2
This level of build is a popular option as it gives the additional benefits of a damp proof membrane in the walls and a smooth surface on the inside that is suitable for decoration. Initially a framework is built using 50mm x 38mm redwood timber with rounded edges. On the outside of this we fit, using galvanised pins, 6mm wbp external plywood followed by a damp poof membrane and then good quality redwood shiplap, this makes the side panels. These panels are then sanded and treated on the outside using two coats of Sadolin wood preservative. These are then fitted together on site, a clear silicon seal is applied to all the corners.
Floor - Ground
Your playhouse comes with a solid floor all ready to be laid onto a sub base; this can be shingle stones/concrete/paving slabs/tarmac/decking. The floor is constructed using 25mm x 50mmm tanolised bearers supporting an 18mm wbp external grade plywood floor: this is treated on the upper side with sadolin classic timber protection. Sandwiched between the bearers and plywood is a damp proof membrane that then wraps around the edge and sits under the playhouse side. The membrane is there to stop moisture coming up from the ground.
A soft floor is fitted to the ground floor of the playhouse once finished - this floor can be removed easily for cleaning.
