« Part 5: Framed the Roof Part 6 of Building My Kids' Playhouse series Part 7: Got it Painted (in a very manly color) »

I got up all the roof sheathing (1/2” CDX) and the exterior walls (3/8” LP SmartSide panels). The windows went in too. They are prefab shed windows (14” x 21” white aluminum). I custom made the doors. They are just 2×4 frames, pocket screwed together, and backed with the SmartSide plywood. For the kids’ door, I made a two-part Dutch door. I also bored in a standard exterior lockset so they can easily open the door from the inside or outside. As for the trim, it is regular 2×4s around the doors, and composite exterior 1×4 trim boards around the corners of the walls, eaves, etc. Moving on to paint next.
