Most of our wood buildings are constructed with LP Smartside®. LP Smartside® is a quality wood based product, which is treated to resist rot, termites, and mold. It also comes with a 5 year replacement/50 year limited warranty. Smartside® is considered to be a "green" building material, because it is a renewable resource having a low environmental impact.
DIY Floor Kit: When purchasing one of our DIY kits you have the option to purchase a floor kit from our company or to purchase on your own at a local lumber yard. This is just to allow our customers the flexibility to lower their shipping costs or to customize their own flooring.
*Some styles and sizes of kits will come standard with a floor.
Drip edge is an aluminum piece that will be installed along the edge of the roof of the playhouse. The shingles will be installed over top of the drip edge. This can easily be purchased at your local home improvement store or lumber yard. This is only needed for playhouse kits.
Option A: Crushed stone. We recommend using crushed stone (3/4" clean) approximately 4-5" deep. We also advise that you have 12" of stone around the perimeter of the outbuilding to control weeds and keep moisture away from the building.
Option B: Concrete Pad. Another option would be to have a concrete pad installed. If you are going to have a concrete pad installed, remember to keep the pad as close to ground level as possible. We recommend that you make the pad 12" wider on each side of the building.
Be Sure Your Site is Level
Using crushed stone or a concrete pad will increase the longevity of your playhouse. Having the site properly prepared allows needed air flow, which will keep your playhouse looking great for years to come!

Please Note: Site preparation refers to the site in which you will place the complete building, it does not give specifications on the floor of your structure. Please contact us if you are looking for measurements for your building to have a concrete floor.
All preparatory work of the site is the responsibility of the property owner. Whatever surface you choose to place your playhouse on, that surface should extend out approximately 1’ wider on all sides of your structure. Most importantly, be sure you have a level surface for your building.
There are several ways to prepare your site including the following:
Concrete Pad- Another option would be to have a concrete pad installed. If you are going to have a concrete pad installed, remember to keep your pad as close to ground level as possible. We recommend that you make the pad 12’’ wider on each side of the building.
