This playhouse and castle platform will provide endless amounts of fun for children. The playhouse itself has a stable door with a door bell on the front with an opening window either side of it. There is an additional opening window on the left hand side and a non opening window on the right hand side so plenty of light gets into the playhouse. The platform which the playhouse is sat on is accessed via a staircase to the front of the structure. There is a slide coming off the platform infront of the playhouse. To the left of the playhouse the platform takes you across a wobble bridge to the castle tower. The tower has cross shaped cut out windows so children can spy on people approaching their castle. There is also a static flagpole to add to the castle feel.
Playhouse with castle platform (PC110553)
Specification of this Playhouse with castle platform
Floor - Raised on a Platform
Your playhouse comes with a solid floor, it is constructed using 25mm x 50mmm tanolised bearers supporting an 18mm wbp external grade plywood floor: this is treated on the upper side using 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. A soft floor is fitted to the ground floor of the playhouse once finished - this floor can be removed easily for cleaning. This is then sited on to a decking platform.
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.
Windows - Non-opening Glazed
The windows are built as separate units; once they have been sanded and treated they are glazed and then fitted and sealed using clear silicon into the frame. These windows are glazed with 2mm polycarbonate sheet, this is completely clear, will not fade or become brittle with time, it is 200 times the strength of glass making it virtually shatter proof.
Windows - Opening Glazed
The windows are built as separate units; once they have been sanded and treated they are glazed and then fitted and sealed using clear silicon into the frame. These windows are glazed with 2mm polycarbonate sheet, this is completely clear, will not fade or become brittle with time, it is 200 times the strength of glass making it virtually shatter proof. The opening window is hinged on either the right of left using a stainless steel piano hinge and our special non trap design. When the window is in the closed position there is a taper between the casement and frame so should any little fingers be in the way they will not get pinched. The casements are held using a brass handle and casement stay.
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.
Doors - Stable
All our doors are built with safety as a paramount concern. All are special a non-trap design, using piano hinge down the whole length of the door, and then a rebate on the inside of the hinged side. When the door is in the closed position there is a taper between the door and frame, so should little fingers be left in the way they will not be pinched. Doors are held closed with heavy duty magnets on both sections of the door; this prevents a child getting locked in accidentally, and has a special flange on the bottom half to prevent little fingers being caught when the top door is slammed against it. The window on the door is glazed with unbreakable 2mm polycarbonate sheet. Doors have a knob inside and out.
