  • The 4' x 6' playhouse has 2" x 3" wall studs and roof joists

  • The floor has 2x4s with 5/8” plywood on top

  • Loft is made of 2x4s with ½” OSB on top.

  • Lofts are 30" wide on the smaller playhouses; on the 10' x 12' and larger they are 4' wide.

  • The 8' wide playhouses has 2" x 3" wall studs and 2" x 4" roof joists

  • The 10' wide playhouses have 2" x 4" wall studs and roof joists

  • There is roughly a 4-5" overhang on all playhouses

  • To build your own floor, the size of the floor needs to be the exact size of the playhouse. The walls are designed to go on a wooden deck, so the siding extends below the wall framing by approx. 3" to cover the floor framing. If you order the kit without a floor to place the kit on a concrete or masonry floor, you'll need to add a couple of 2 x 4's under the wall plates or cut off the extended siding.

  • We recommend a crushed stone base 1' wider on either side of the playhouse

  • Decks are 3 feet deep by the width of the playhouse.
