Garden Cottage (PC100725)
Specification of this Garden Cottage
Sides - Option 3
This is our highest level of build, the playhouse will have a damp proof membrane in the walls, full insulation and flat plywood lined walls on the inside with architrave around the doors and windows and skirting board around the bottom of the walls.
Initially a framework is built using 50mm x 38mm timber. To this we fix on the outside a weatherproof membrane and good quality redwood ship lap using galvanised brads, insulation panels are fitted between the framework before 6mmwbp plywood in fitted as an internal skin, this makes the side panels. Architrave is fitted around the doors and windows and skirting around the bottom of the walls. 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.
Roof - Felt 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 2 base coats of waterproof membrane and then a top layer of felt shingles giving the appearance of tiles. 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.
