Every kid needs a special place that's all his or her own-a place to create the memories that fill a happy childhood. With its big, open porch, Dutch door, flower boxes and decorative architectural details, this picture-perfect playhouse makes an ideal home for childhood memories. Sure to capture the imagination of any child, it even looks nice out in the yard. Featuring all straight cuts and full-size patterns for the angles, the project is easy enough for most woodworkers. Built from T111 plywood (which gives the appearance of vertical siding) over sturdy 2-by-2 framing, it's also affordable. Do-it-yourselfers will enjoy big savings, with comparable prefabricated playhouse kits starting at around $1,500. From building the foundation to installing the roof, step-by-step, illustrated instructions break the project down into smaller units, allowing it to be completed over several weekends. Once the basic structure is complete, just hang the door, add a coat of paint to match the big house, fill the flower boxes and help the kids move in. The project measures six feet square (including the porch) and stands about six feet tall. About U-Bild plans: U-Bild plans are ideal for woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers of all skill levels. Unique trace, saw and assemble designs feature simple-to-follow patterns (like sewing patterns) that produce professional-looking results.
