Last weekend, we bought a used playhouse for Bryson. It was pretty basic and a little old, but well built and the price was good. The folks that were selling it were really nice, and helped me load it up after we disassembled it. Brandon helped me unload it and set it up.
Amber was the master ditch digger. This was a huge rock she had to dig out.
Why a ditch? Well, I needed dirt to level the playhouse. I figured it was a good time to finish the drainage project I started years ago… The dirt dug out of trench for the pipe could be used to level the playhouse. Good idea, right? Amber might not think so now.
I followed the general design of the base unit. One of the neat features was the way the bolts were used. I drilled holes in the 4×4 posts so that no bolts were sticking out for kids to get scraped up on.
Now we are getting close. Everything is located correctly. I have platforms at 1 foot, 2 foot, 3 foot, then the entry to the main unit on the left, or another platform at 4.5 foot, then the final platform at 6 foot.
I stayed up until midnight working on it. When Amber came out to help me pick up the tools, I was showing the dogs that they could get into it also. Dasher was very happy. I could see him smiling when he put his paws up and noticed he could finally see over the fence!
