Mini-blinds are easy for a child to adjust in a playhouse windows
Feb 28 2011
Kurt and Jenna Susanke were able to give their daughter a world-class playhouse when they moved to a former Illinois dairy farm owned by Kurt's family.
A garden shed can be converted into a child's playhouse.
On the property was an old milk shed that Kurt outfitted with a small ladder leading to a loft that maximized the small space and provided an instant lookout, according to Wondertime magazine.
But a parent can accomplish the same playspace in a corner of the garage by building a small loft anchored to wall studs. For safety, a balcony railing with no more than 4 inches between the rails should be installed around the perimeter, the magazine reports.
The space beneath the loft can be lined with tongue-and-groove paneling, outfitted with a small area rug and futon for relaxing.
To draw in natural light, a window treatment that can be adjusted for full sun or filtered light should be installed in shed or garage windows nearest to the play area. Aluminum mini-blinds are easy to clean and for a child to adjust. They can be adjusted for light or closed for privacy.
