Determine the need for materials

If a child is from 2 to 6 years, that big house he did not need. We have to build a building of modest dimensions, with a square in the base 1,7h1,7 meters and about 2.5 meters in height.

The need for materials is as follows:

  • Chipboard 2×1. 7 m – 4 leaf;
  • For the walls and roof need 13 bars with a length of 2.5 meters and a cross section of 2.5 x 2.5 cm 13 only 8 bars, you need one end to focus;
  • For the supports of the floor I get 8 bars with a length of 35 cm and a cross section of 2.5 x 2.5 cm;
  • To seal the floor horizontally’ll need 4 boards of length 2 meters, cross-section 15h5 cm;
  • Will lay the floor boards (13 pieces) length of 2 meters and a cross section 15h5 cm;
  • To cover the roof with plywood and will with any roofing material;
  • Of consumables needed screws, corners, metal, paint and brushes.

All that you need to prepare before work so that was at hand. Let the child learns to work and smoothly organized.


Building materials for small children’s home should be prepared before the commencement of construction. To do the drawing for him is not necessary: it is very simple and easy construction

Select and mark out a place, make the flooring

Yes, the child wants to have a corner for games, but absolutely to miss him at this age is dangerous. You never know what can happen to the baby? Therefore, to build a children’s play house in the country necessary in this place to this building was clearly visible from the kitchen window, for example. So mom, cooking dinner, will watch over the youngest member of the family.

Little house

That’s such a small house is enough to make the baby happy. Approximately this structure we need to build for the baby aged 2 to 6 years

We have to make a layout. Take the pegs and string, mark out an area whose size is 2×2 meters. The selected area should be well compacted and the surface to make smooth. In the corners of the pad digging pits 20 cm deep. Put them in bars to 15 cm, they were above the surface of the earth.

The same deepening is needed in the middle of each of the four sides of the site. They also put the boards and strengthen them. The building is small and to use the solution in this case is optional. We got the eight pillars, one each in the four corners of the court and one for each of the four sides.

Again measure the height of the supports with umera. How smooth will the ground floor of the house, depends on the quality of the entire building. The distortions of no use to us. To the supports nailed four boards so that left open-topped box. On him will be laid the boards tight to one another. Board attached with screws and get the finished floor to floor.

The basis for the house

Particular attention should be paid to the initial stage of the work, because the distortions at first can nullify all the efforts of the Builder

Erected the walls of a building

For walls we’ll need four sheets of particleboard (chipboard) and 8 bars with pointed ends. For each sheet of DSP you need two sides to attach the screws on the beam. While the blunt ends of the boards should be flush with the top edge of the chipboard, and pointed will be performing on two feet. Each sheet of chipboard with two bars on each side forms one wall of the house. Let the end wall is blank, and the one located next to it, you can cut the door. The side walls can be done with Windows. Two or one window in your house, you decide.

The shape of the openings for Windows and doors choose. But it is better to look at children’s books and make choices, guided by the pictures. Kids love stories, let the house the child looks the most fabulous. The house must be a lot of sun, but shade on a hot day is also not forget. Ready-made wall with a hammer are set so that the surface of the chipboard is flush against the flooring. Do not forget to check the vertical thrust of the walls. Between the walls must be bonded with corners and screws. Cracks in the building should not be!

Construct a solid roof

The roof of the house you can make a high or flat. It all depends on how exactly you imagine this building. We will do this: take 4 lumber whose edges are not sharpened, and cut their ends at 45 degrees. Fasten two beams together with screws so that the inner angle between them was 90 degrees. Both angular design are part of the Foundation of the roof. Inside each of the corners should seal the metal corners on the screws.

The construction of the roof

It does not matter if the farm was not plywood. For sheathing, you can use thin slats, the remnants laminate and other similar materials

One of the corner structures must be attached to the front wall of the house. To close the free space between the roof and the wall, it is necessary to outline the triangle. It cut out with a hacksaw. We proceed similarly with the opposite wall of the building. Now roof support can be fastened by a transverse beam. Ready to frame left to attach to the walls with metal corners.

To cover the roof needed plywood. If not, you can use all that remains of construction and renovation in the house. Suitable, for example, reechki, laminate, etc. as roofing material is also possible to use the remains of Ondulin, slate colored, sheet or tile. Even better if there are colorful pieces of the same roofing material. Get a real «gingerbread house». Left the finishing work and painting. This children’s play house with their hands can build in one day. And it does not require special skills of the Builder.

Cut the roof

The construction of the children’s house should be taken seriously. If you manage to perform all phases of work, you and large objects would be on the shoulder

Option #2 — house for older children

Older children need not only a place to play, you need all sorts of devices and structures with which to play. Tell me how to build a more sophisticated children’s house for children older than 6 years, this video.

Option #3 — a two-storey house made of willows and reeds

The children’s house can be built from different materials. In this case, the builders the opportunity to use the willow trees, from thickets which liberated the local pond and the reeds, prepared in advance. Trunks of felled trees can be used for the construction of the first floor of the house. For this they cut into churbachki 15 cm in length.

The first floor of willow house

For the frame, they used the old boards 10х10см, which made the first floor of a geometrically accurate. Because it is the basis of the structure, then this option can be considered optimal. Fasten the frame of the future window and begin to put lumps in the grout. To a solution of the required sand (part 1), clay (2 parts), cement (1 part). Water is added so that the mass is not a liquid, and elastic.

Clutch of churbachkov

Masonry should be done carefully. This requires that the solution was not liquid, but elastic consistency. All the gaps between the chocks must carefully fill

To frame and masonry from churbachkov received a solid coupling, use nails (20cm). They must be in pairs to drive in the skeleton of the structure, interspersing them every 2-3 rows. For door opening put another beam. Ensure that all gaps between the chocks on both sides of the walls were completely filled with solution. Wall ready.

Strengthening nails

To frame and masonry was firmly bonded to each other, it is possible to use not only nails, but also a long metal pins

Now we pitch the floor. This requires churbachki 10 cm in length. Inside the building we take out the soil to 15 cm depth. Five inches poured on the bottom of the formed hole in the sand. It is very tight, carefully selecting stacked lumps. With wide planks and a hammer tamp them.

The construction of the floor

The construction of the floor of the wooden churbachkov – not easy, but the result is worth the effort. Because in the house will play your children

Fill existing cracks with sand, followed by water the floor with water under pressure to the sand filled the gaps and securely fixed churbachki. The gaps are filled with mortar of sand and cement. Leave floor to dry, after which it must be well rinsed to the color of the wood is back.

Second floor willow house

If the wood for the first floor have been felled before the SAP flow, then the second floor need a willow when sicogon in them is already underway. Such wood can be very easy to release from the crust. Attach the logs to the frame, you must use a two-hundred nails. Among themselves they, too, must knock in the most dense areas. Don’t forget about the door and window openings. To make a pyramidal roof, you need four smooth logs from which to build the rafters. The edges of the house to kill them, and at the intersection is fixed with screws.

Second floor

The trunks of willow during the period of sicogon very easily cleaned from the bark. From these purified branches and trunks and will be built a second floor

Reeds for the roof take the young. It needs to grow in the spring and harvest it should be winter. Mow reeds better in a period when little snow, and the shore and the surface of the pond covered with ice. Ice Kosa slips, so the reeds will srazhatsya smoothly and look neat.

When laying a roof of reeds fixed it by tightening the screws of the two rails. First, the rafters put the crate on her Staley reed of such thickness, as planned. Then on top of reeds stacked rail and tighten it with the crate long screws. The same is done with all sides of the roof. The tip structure is crowned by a dome with wire pressed to the rafters.

The roof of reeds

Here is the hipped roof, covered with reeds. If done slowly, the result will delight all

The frame can be covered with latex paint. The hammocks are attached to a specially dug a large log. However, you can use and old tree, the trunk of which is still quite reliable. Detail how to make a wooden children’s Playhouse from the materials around us, will tell the video.
