This pretty cottage playhouse has a central stable door, with diamond shape cut out and letterbox in it. Next to the door is a battery operated doorbell so the children can answer the door to people visiting them in their space. There are two rectangular opening windows with window boxes underneath on the front which are a great way to start kids enjoying gardening. There is a diamond shape window on each end as well as a set of shutters which are great for playing shops. The roof is finished with a slate effect with a chimney in it which looks lovely on this style playhouse and the facia and ridge board is scalloped. Internally the playhouse is plywood lined and then painted white. It has a fitted blackboard so the children can let their creative side out along with 2 foldaway shelves and a removal bench and table. The front windows have been finished off with curtains which looks great on a cottage.
Cottage style playhouse (PC100701)
Specification of this Cottage style playhouse
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.
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.
Roof - Slate
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 waterproof membrane and then eternite slates fixed. These look just like real slate. 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.
