So you want to build a Clubhouse?

It may be cute the first time, but when you see your cushions, pillows, coffee table and blankets ripped from their rightful place, piled together in the middle of the living room floor for the 15th time, the novelty just may begin to wear off. Children love being able to hide and take shelter from whatever’s out there and having a playhouse or even a treehouse gives them just that! Allowing a child a place to play in, enjoy, entertain themselves and call their own is a very special part of childhood. Perhaps this is the perfect time for you to start that project your kids have been asking for. Giving them their very own play fort!

The Joy of building your own kids-house

Clubhouses provide a great place where your kids can escape to after the school day or serve as the meeting place for all the neighbourhood kids during the weekends. Building it yourself will allow your children to see that handy man side of yourself that may not get out too often any more. We know assembling a clubhouse can be a challenge. Maybe you’re a bit rusty with your carpentry skills or have never built anything at all before. Don’t worry, building a clubhouse is a challenge you can definitely prevail over. View this as an opportunity for you to spend time with your kids, both learning and having fun together for something that’ll last for years to come.

Before you begin your Clubhouse adventure…

There are a few things you’re going to need to know. First, make sure you have the required tools you’ll need before beginning your project. As the classic saying goes, “a carpenter is only good as his tools.” Make sure too that proper safety guidelines are followed to prevent any injuries when building. Construction is the most dangerous industry in the United States and many accidents could have been prevented if practical guidelines were kept. If you do not want to create a clubhouse design yourself and would like to follow a blue print, we also have plans available .

Building a clubhouse can be alot of fun, but if you want something simple and building a clubhouse from scratch isn’t something you want in your to do list, there are many clubhouse kits and prepackaged playhouses you can purchase that’ll fit the bill. There are also a number of professional clubhouse and playhouse builders that you can hire to give you something plain yet fun, to utterly elaborate and wonderful. There’s also a number of treehouse builders if you want something extra special.
