« Part 6: Sheathed and Trimmed Out Part 7 of Building My Kids' Playhouse series Part 8: Shingled the Roof - Now it's Done »

Our four year-old daughter picked the color. It definitely adds a pop of color to our yard, if nothing else… Final step is to paper and shingle the roof. It will be the first time I ever did roofing. Should be fun.

Are you planing on doing a close valley roof weave? or an open weave with metal valley flashing?

Very nicely done.

Play house for daughter, when she outgrows it, there’s a utility door, and then back to the playhouse again, for the grandkids.

Couldn’t help but fast forward to the grandkids, I have 8, and 2 great-grandkids.

Mothballs or a mothcake in the attic/rafters will keep the wasps and most of the creepy crawlers out.

Great design and forethought. – Len

Andrew B: I finished the roof today. For the valleys, I did as recommended on the packaging of the shingles. They are Tamko Heritage 30y dimensional shingles. I’m not entirely sure what the method is called, but I know it is not an open weave, and there was not any metal flashing involved. I did some research online about valley methods, and oddly enough, the method recommended on the shingle packaging is not one of the few common methods I found online. So I don’t know the specific name.
