Mad Carpentry Skills (One Wall)

After lunch, I headed to Lowe’s to buy some more building materials for my daughter’s playhouse. After laying the foundation yesterday, I was ready to start building the walls.  I am pretty much a dork at everything that I do, and I do believe that I am building the largest playhouse in the history of the world.  If you look at the pictures below, you will see the first wall.  It is a standard 8 foot wall.  I am still deciding how many windows I want to add, what size door to use, and whether or not to air condition the thing.  (Hmmm… as always, I bite off more than I can chew.)

I will probably add a “loft” that will be 8 feet wide and 4 feet deep.  My goal for the next few days is to have the building framed up, with siding and a roof.  I can worry about the “interior” once I get the building ready to withstand rain.  So far, I’m about $300 into this baby, with much more to spend.  Yikes!  (My daughter is 7.  She will love this playhouse.)

    Your daughter’s playhouse is only slightly smaller (4 sq feet) than our hunting cabin. I’m so envious – especially if she gets the lot – then she’ll have *way* more space :)
