Easy and Unique DIY Playhouse Ideas

Easy and Unique DIY Playhouse Ideas

A number of our customers have demonstrated a variety of applications using FauxPanels™. Their ingenuity truly inspires us.  The ideas we're highlighting this week are particularly unique - using the panels in DIY playhouse projects.

In addition to the highly realistic resemblance the panels have to the real thing, they're perfect for children’s playhouses because of how lightweight and easy the panels are to install.  Made of high-density polyurethane, there’s also no need to worry that they’ll crack, chip, or peel.  Thanks to this, the panels are safer than real stone to side or accent a kid’s playhouse.

Once installed, the panels make a playhouse look fantastic.  And because of the durability of the panels, there is no need to store it indoors during severe weather.  In all kinds of conditions, the panels will retain their realistic appearance, and look as good as they did the day they were installed.

Below are some great examples of other playhouses our customers have built.

Built by the Boy Scout’s Venture Crew 360 in Pennsylvania for the Benefit of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Enchanted Castle Playhouse is a wonderful example of how great the panels look.  As you can see in the photos, the panels are extremely easy to install.  So easy, in fact, even kids can install them.

The second playhouse is one created by a customer in Salt Lake City, UT.  Built in his backyard, he said the panels were very easy to install.  And he is very satisfied with the way the project turned out.  As you can see in the photos below, a tube slide is built into the playhouse.  The panels were easy enough for him to cut, so that they fit around the slide.  The result was a beautiful playhouse his children will be able to enjoy for years to come.

The third example is part of an amusement park that’s local to our NY offices, known as Adventureland.  Nailon Brick siding in the Used Buff Blend were used, as well as the matching corners.  Corners are great because they connect right to the surface of the structure you’re covering and install easily and quickly.  Simply choose the corners that match your panels and fit them into place.  Like the panels, the corners are also very robust and durable.  For an amusement park like Adventureland, these qualities help to protect the corners from the impact of visitors’ bags and backs as they walk by the playhouse.

This customer from Cleveland, OH built a playhouse inside the house, so that his children would have a small space of their own to play and spend time reading.  Regency Stacked Stone panels were used to create wainscoting and make for a lovely design.
