Woodsmith Plans

Backyard Playhouse

Build a children's playhouse with everything they'll need for summer entertainment: Slide, swing, clubhouse, sandbox, and even a small deck.

Kids will love playing in the enclosed playhouse perched above a ground-level sandbox. And after scrambling up the ladder, children can escape down the slide at the other end. A Dutch door doubles as a make-believe store counter. Simple window grids prevent falls, yet let in lots of light and air.

What you get:

  • 12 pages of step-by-step instructions.
  • More than 40 full-color photos and illustrations.
  • We take you step-by-step through building the platform, hanging floor joists, and framing the walls — plus give you detailed instructions for installing the roof and siding.
  • Shop-tested guarantee from the editors of Woodsmith and ShopNotes magazines.
