Buying A Childrens Timber Playhouse

Feb 26, 2008
Any parent will know that getting playhouses for their children has provided them with years of fun. If you are considering buying such an item for your child you will soon discover there are plenty of different ones to choose from. Some people prefer to buy those, which are prefabricated whilst others prefer to spend a little more and have a custom built one instead. But whichever they choose they know that their child is going to have hours of fun in it once it has been built.

When you are actually looking to buy a wooden playhouse there are several places where you can look for what it is that you want. Firstly you can visit your local garden center or DIY store to see what styles they have available. Most of which come in a prefabricated form so all one needs to do is follow the instructions provided in order to assemble them. The other place to search for good quality prefabricated and custom made playhouses is by going online.

However, before you actually invest any money in the playhouse you need to take a number of factors into consideration. One of the most important of all of these is where the playhouse will actually be built.

Ideally, it should be located in a position where the children can easily gain access to it. Plus if it is going to be used by very small (young) children then place it in a position where you have uninterrupted views of it from your home. Also if you can place it in a position where it gets lots of natural light as this means you will not need to have to spend more money running electricity to it.

Should you be selecting to have a custom-made playhouse built in your garden it is wise to check with your local authority if you need permission to do so. Generally, most playhouses are no more than 100 square feet in size and do not require any building permits. But anything above this size may well require such permits so it is best to be safe than sorry.

When selecting what size playhouse you are getting for your child choose one that will meet all their needs as they grow older. Certainly going for the custom made rather than prefabricated style offers you more chance to select a design and size that meets your child's requirements perfectly.

Once you have decided on what size playhouse it is you want for your child you next need to decide on the design. As you will soon discover when looking online there are numerous different designs to choose from. There are those that are very simple and elegant in their design. Whilst you may wish to go for something a little more elaborate such as those that resemble a pirate ship or a castle.

So be warned because there are so many different styles of playhouses to choose from actually deciding which is best may take longer than you would have first expected. If you keep in mind what we have mentioned above then you will be able to find one that not only your child likes but meets your budgetary requirements also.
