Throughout this week we started putting the play house together started to build the door, .
We started by putting the walls onto the floor and clicking it all together because we set up joins so that the walls could fit earlier. Once they are all connected they were screwed/hammered in. seen below
Once all the walls were together and was connected to the base we attached the roof. This was hard to do and we needed the whole group to hold it up on top while the others fit it in and screwed it on. Seen below
Putting the roof on was done in 2 parts with the back one getting put up first quickly followed by the front. We had people supporting the roof while all the work was done. Front part of roof getting put on seen below
We had to make sure that it all fit together properly/slotted in and once it was correct we screwed it.
We worked on the dormers and eating them complete by adding the facings.seen below
We also started work on the gables. To do this we got some play wood and cut it to the size of the gable location seen below
We made it so that we could get 2 out of one sheet. To do this we cut a square to size then corner to corner to get the triangle shape. This worked perfectly and they fit well on each side
Once this was done we worked on the gable ends and cut the timber for the sides, seen below
We started to make and mark the door as well seen below.
This door will be a double door and function similar to the old west saloon doors
What we have together
