This playhouse is perfect for small gardens. It provides storage for all your garden tools and machines on the bottom and then provides your children with their own space to play and have fun upstairs. The staircase is made out of all weather tanolised timber and is protected with balustrade rails up either side of it. The playhouse has a 2ft veranda in front of it which gives a shelter from the sun. The left hand side of the veranda has a solid wall to give privacy to neighbours. The playhouse has a stable door and two non opening glazed windows, internally it is lined with plywood. The storage area has a wide door and two non opening glazed windows.
Playhouse with storage shed (PC070619)
Specification of this Playhouse with storage shed
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 1
Whilst this is our option one build, it should not be confused with a “shed” type construction, as each one of our playhouses are hand built in our workshops in Herefordshire and we only use superior quality materials. Initially a framework is built using 50mm x 38mm redwood timber with rounded edges. To this we fix, using galvanised brads, good quality redwood shiplap timber; 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 - Felted
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 a base layer of waterproof membrane and then a top layer of 38kg mineral felt, using stainless steel staples. The felt is wrapped over the front and back and sealed behind the facia board.
Doors - Standard
All our doors are built with safety as a paramount concern. All are a special 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; this prevents a child getting locked in accidentally. The cut out window is glazed with unbreakable 2mm polycarbonate sheet. Doors have a knob inside and out.
Other - External Staircase
All staircases are built at an angle of 45 degrees with no more than 180mm between treads: they are built using tanolised timber with grooved decking used for the treads. All staircases above 300mm have balustrade rails on the side.
