How to build a Wendy House

Wendy Houses can be used for a variety of different purposes. These structures can provide extra storage space as a tool shed. They also make great dog kennels. For families with young children, a Wendy house is a wonderful play room. If the structure is large enough, it can be used as a garden cottage or as staff quarters. If you enjoy DIY projects, you can build your own Wendy House. Another option is to hire someone on Junk Mail to build the structure for you.


To build a Wendy House it is important to have the right tools. A hammer, step ladder and drill are essential equipment for this project. Woodworking tools including a handsaw, tape measure and spirit level are also needed. There are plenty of second hand tools for sale that can help reduce costs. Materials that are required include wood, nails and windows.


Before you start building, you should plan your project. Make a budget to determine if you have enough money to buy the necessary materials. The purpose of the structure will influence the design and construction process. The amount of space that is available will affect the size of the structure. It is necessary to find a suitable place to build the Wendy House. The location that you choose must be easy to access. Before you build the structure it is advisable to check with your municipality if there are any regulations that you are required to follow.


Although building a Wendy House may seem like a difficult task, it is possible to build the structure with some guidance. The first step is to construct the platform base. Next you will need to build the walls. Adding a window, door and roof is an important part of the construction process.

    Just please whatever you do, investigate your builder thoroughly. Don’t just look at the photos on the website like we did. We wanted something like in the video and instead ended up with a horrible structure sitting on unstable bricks, a roof that you can see daylight through where it’s not overlapping, likewise through the walls. A floor I tripped on it’s so uneven and not to mention the mess they left behind, from wood to sawdust to nails left lying in the grass.
