Some good free plans for a child's playhouse include the A Place Imagined free plan, The Wendy House Plan from BuildEazy and the American Gothic plan from Southern Pine. Additionally, the DIY Network offers guides to building deluxe playhouses.
Individuals who don't have much space can try the A Place Imagined free playhouse plan. It features a traditional exterior and has a straightforward design inside, but parents can customize it by creating or choosing furniture that meets their kids' tastes. Alternatively, those who want a design that's a little more exciting can try the Lowe's Outdoor plan, which offers a bright and funky design complete with a porch. Users can obtain the plan with adverts, or they can pay a nominal fee for an ad-free version.
The American Gothic design from Southern pine has a unique look, 32 square feet of space and a 2-foot wide front porch. Although the overall finish has a traditional house shape, its trim and color scheme give it a castle-like appearance. Parents who want to take a deluxe approach to their kids' playhouse can try the DIY Network's deluxe plan. In addition to the interior, this plan includes roofing, shutters and a mailbox, resulting in a design that has a realistic finish. The DIY Network offers a step-by-step guide, as well as video tutorials.
