playhouse in log lap cladding
This 2 storey play house was installed on the Saturday before Christmas. It is a 3m x 3m 2 storey playhouse. It has window boxes and a false chimney.
The up stairs of the play house is big enough for children to use as a reading are or hide away den.
This one has been painted Pink and Cream for effect.
The play house cladding is 20mm log lap T+G cladding.
It also has slate colour felt shingles on the play house roof.
Getting the foundations for a garden building correct is very important. The foundations must be level and firm, drainage is also an important factor to consider. Also position of the building should be well planed so as not to be obtrusive, whilst allowing easy access with large items. A corner of the garden is the most obvious place for a shed but remember to allow enough room to get around all the sides to treat the timber. The best type of base for any garden building is a concrete base laid on hardcore, but this can be expensive and difficult and a professional builder may be required to do the work for you if your are in any doubt.
The two easiest and still very effective types of bases are a slab base or a treated timber frame base. Please click on the links on the right for guides on creating these types of bases.
New for 2013 the Otto little cabin playhouse. Ideal for younger children the Otto play house has little veranda at the front with a porch over hang to make this play house really feel like home.
Long Sutton Christmas Market 2012 asked Hallgate Timber to build a fun large childrens play house to use for Santa’s little helpers. We made a roof using Suffolk Cladding (heavy duty ex 36mm Feather Edge Boards) for the roof so that it could be built in single panels that are already water proof so as to save time on assembly of the playhouse.
The wall cladding is 15mm T+G Shiplap cladding.
The palyhouse walls are treated in straw preservative with light green for the window boxes and cappings. We have used a false chimney made from ply wood on top of the feather edge roof for effect.
