Default Our Yard Makeover, Part 4

We are off and running on part four. We bought a playhouse from Sam's Club, and the time has come to put it up. No, I didn't build one. Sometimes you have to pick your battles. This was not one of them!

First things first. Since the playhouse doesn't come with a floor, I need to build one.

Let's see...about this wide and this long. OK, a 10 foot and an 8 foot treated 2x4 and some composite deck boards.

Ready, set, go!

Note: Today was a rainy day so it was a good time to work in the shop building the frame. Check out the pics. I had two helpers holding the boards while I screwed them together.

I like the helpers you have there, Mike. They are steady workers that don't wiggle around much. Lol

Btw I love the idea of a play house . When I was a kid I commandeered my dads tool shed. When your a kid it's important to have your own private domain , at least in my case it was.
Would have liked to have seen what you what have come up with though , had you built one yourself

Mike, do you suppose Rick was referring to the I word?

Dan, I was thinking that itchy stuff you put in the walls to make your shop more comfortable in the summer and winter. I believe it is called INSULATION.

Yup those helpers look very much like the extra hands that I wish I had on some jobs.

@MT Stringer

Good approach, particularly with the helpers.

Interested in the "treated wood". Based on its color it appears to be the "yellow wood" that Tom talked about for turtles. Comments?
