a playhouse...

i got inspired.


and the ideas started to flow.  a little playhouse for the kiddos.  in the backyard.  with some pallets.

a little space that could be a house... a restaurant... a reading nook... anything that could be imagined.

so i shared the idea with my husband, who so kindly made it a reality. (without making me feel crazy since we not so long ago finished building the treehouse).

and this is what we came up with...

  1. I get the walls but the roof confuses me? Is that made from pallets parts too?

    1. yes! the frame is made of pallet pieces for the most part (except for the fabric)... some pallets have those supports in them (if you google "pallet" you can see that part is called a "runner")... we disassembled another pallet to use just those pieces, and cut the ends of them on angles to fit together at the top points and onto the tops of the walls. we then used a thick rod to go from the front top point to the back top point, and then i made a fabric roof with some ties to go over the whole thing.

      does that help?

  2. Did you use exterior door hinges for door? & did you use screws or nails to hold together?

    1. sorry for the late response! yes, most things were galvanized, so they wouldn't rust. we had a bunch of things laying around in the garage, so we used what was on hand, but they happened to be exterior quality. to hold it all together, we used mostly corner brackets (?) and screws. you can see the brackets i'm talking about in most of the photos, but if you look in the seventh one down in the top back left corner, you can see what i'm talking about. for the roof frame, we used L-brackets to attach them to the top of the pallets, and at their peaks, used screws to attach them to each other.

      hope that helps!

    1. hi katie! sorry for the delay in responding... we used a drill for the screws, a circular saw for cutting the pallets, and a crowbar to remove any nails in the pallets. outside of that, for the hardware, we tried to use whatever we had on hand... some L brackets and/ or those corner plates to connect the pallets at the corners, hinges for the doors, things like that. if you decide to build one and have specific questions, feel free to ask as they come up!
