The materials and tools used include treated timbers, treated lumber, stockade fence, roll roofing hammer, drill, paintbrush, spade, circular saw, and utility knife. Ensure that all cuts are made using a circular saw to reduce splinters that are usually noticeable outside.

A colored texture glass was incorporated that makes it Malaysian inspired because these are seen on old traditional Malaysian doors. Shutters were installed with louvers.
The architectural elements used in this DIY playhouse plan include the stilts, steps, narrow shutters, and intricate railings. A simple roof was used and a wooden spike was also installed on top of the roof later. The base of this Malaysian-inspired playhouse measures 150 by150 centimeters or 5 by 5 feet.

13) Kids Fort Playhouse by HGTV
The materials and tools used in making this playhouse include decking, posts, plywood, paint, joist hangers, concrete, clamps, corrugated plastic, circular saw, jigsaw, reciprocating saw, nail gun, hammer, chainsaw, level, and router. For the construction plan, you need to measure a 4 by 8 platform and mark four corners. For a 4 by 4 posts, you have to dig holes in all corners. All posts should be on the same level and the brace is used as needed.
Most localities are considering play equipment as a deck, that’s why you need to consider the size of the floor joist, hardware like joist hangers, and railing spacing. For small children, it is best not to have any working windows or doors so parents can see them all the time. It is also a good idea using
clear corrugated plastic roofing to let the light in, and it is fairly inexpensive.
14) Clubhouse Castle Playhouse by Instructables

His kids just love the house and he was very happy with the final output.
The owner has never built a structure in his entire life but he started out with four 4 by 4 by 16 feet redwood posts and bags of quikrete. He searched the internet and got some general ideas much of the design was adopted and owed to Ms. Barbara Butler. This playhouse has a tubular slide, tire swing, rock climbing wall, a secret door, stainless steel firepole, and the base is 5 by 5 feet with a total height of approximately 17 feet.

The magic mirror is really amazing, responding to different sensors such as touch and proximity.
The builder is admittedly a computer and electronics geek. He took 8 months to complete this project with the help of family and friends’ ideas and suggestions as well as the web. He spent roughly $1500 for the supplies including TV mount, roof shingles, flashing, wood, concrete slab, vintage light, Pergo floor, foam panel insulation, custom sized windows, speaker wire, in-wall speakers, and drywall. The dimensions of this playhouse are 8 x 8 x8 feet. It was framed in Oregon and drove in California where it was assembled. He was happy doing the electrical stuff but not the roof.

16) Playhouse with a Slide
The builder has provided step-by-step photo guide of this playhouse project so you can see how simple this playhouse can be built with little mess. The builder uses a tantalized wood for durability measuring 4 by 4, 4 by 2 and 2 by 2. There was no plan to go from, so it was built and designed as the builder went along.
A concrete for the bedding was used in the posts because the top is heavy. The size just suits the 8 by 4 sheets for the roofing, minimizing wastage. For the internal floor, 8 by 2 sheets of chipboard were used and deck boards were used for the outside. The children were too smart to know how to test a playhouse’s stability so this playhouse was built to also fit an adult. This playhouse was roofed over the ply using a green felt. The joints and clout holes were sealed with weather silicone.
