Using a tape measure and a framing square, measure an 8' x 8' square. Check that your site is perfectly square by measuring the diagonals. If they each measure 11' 6 , your site is a perfect 8' square.   Step 2: Outer Frame  Use two 8' lengths of 2 x 6 lumber rated for outdoor use for the front and rear rim joists. From two more 8' lengths of 2 x 6 lumberrated for outdoor use, cut two pieces of 2 x 6 x 7' 6 for the side rim joists. Assemble the outer frame by nailing through the frontand rear rim joists into the side rim joists, using two 12d 3 1/4 common nails for each corner. See Figure 1.   Step 3: Leveling the Site  Level the ground under your floor frame using a shovel and a rake. Check your level by placing a 4'-long carpenter's level on top of the rim joists (you may have to prop up a corner of the floor with a brick or a patio block). After the site is level, move the frame awayand spread a sheet of polyethylene film over the site to prevent vegetation from growing. Move the frame back into place.   Copyright 2004 Martian Auctions 146  Step 4: Inner Frame Joists From 8' lengths, cut five pieces of 2 x 6 x 7' 9 lumber rated for outdoor use for the floor joists. Measure from the outer rear cornersof the frame, and locate the centers of the inner floor joists at 16 , 32 , 48 , 64 and 72 . Use two 12d 3 1/4 galvanized common nailsto secure each end of the inner floor joists to the side rim joists. Measure the gaps between the inner floor joists and cut lengths of 2 x6 lumber rated for outdoor use to fit between each pair of joists. Nail the blocks into place near the middle of the floor joists. Everysecond block should be offset slightly to facilitate nailing. Step 5: Plywood Floor  Set one 4' x 8' sheet of 3/4 CDX plywood on the frame, with one edge of the sheet flush with the rear rim joist. Use the plywood as aguide to square up your frame. The front edge of the plywood sheet should fall exactly at the center of the floor joist that was securedat 48 on center. Fasten the plywood to the joists with 1 5/8 #6 coated deck screws at 8 intervals around the perimeter and at 12 intervals in the center of the plywood. Mark and cut the second sheet of 3/4 CDX plywood in half lengthwise. Put one half aside forlater use as the door. Set the other half on the floor joists next to the full plywood sheet, leaving a 1/16 gap between the two sheets.Secure the half-sheet to the floor joists with 1 5/8 #6 coated deck screws. Copyright 2004 Martian Auctions 147  Framing Build the walls on the ground, stand them up and then nail them into place.   Step 1: Wall Studs  Cut nineteen 5' 6 lengths of 2 x 4 from 12' lengths for the wall studs.   Step 2: Rear Wall  Use two 8' lengths of 2 x 4 for the top and bottom plates. Space the studs 2' on center between the top and bottom plates and securethe studs by nailing through the plates with 8d 2 1/2 galvanized common nails. Cut four 2 x 4 x 21 1/2 pieces and nail them,horizontally, between the studs about halfway up the wall.Set the rear wall in place directly over the rear rim joist and floor. Nail the rear wall into place with 16d 3 1/2 galvanized commonnails, driven through the wall's bottom plate and the floor and into the rim joist. Temporarilyprop up the rear wall with an 8'-long 2 x 4 . Rest one end on the ground and nail the otherat an angle into the right-side stud of the back wall, at a height of about 4'.   Step 3: Side Walls  The two side walls are identical. Our windows required a 17 3/4 -wide x 15 1/4 -highopening. If you use different windows, adjust the distance between the two center studs. Indoing so, make sure you have a stud centered at 4' from the back of the playhouse to use as anailer for the edges of the sheathing boards. Since the side walls will be mounted 3 1/2 from the back of the playhouse, the middle nailers should be centered at 44 1/2 from theback of the side walls.   Cut four 2 x 4 x 65 pieces from 12' lengths for the top and bottom plates. Nail the platesto the end studs with two 8d 2 1/2 common nails at each joint. Nail one stud on center at 441/2 from the back of each side wall. Nail another stud at the appropriate distance for the window framing.Set one side wall in place, butted up against the end of the rear wall and flush with the edge of the side rim joist. Nail the wall intoplace with 16d 3 1/2 nails. Use a level to make sure that the wall is plumb and then secure it to the end of the back wall with 8d 21/2 common nails. Repeat for the other side wall.   Step 4: Front Wall  Use two 2 x 4 x 8' pieces for the top and bottom plates. Fasten a stud to each end of the top plate by nailing through the plate into thestud, using two 8d 2 1/2 common nails at each joint. Fasten the bottom plate to the two end studs with 8d 2 1/2 common nails.Fasten another stud 22 from the right end of the front wall for the edge of the doorway. Fasten a fourth stud so that it is centered 48 from each side of the wall. This will serve as the second stud for the doorway and as a nailer for the left front sheathing. The other twostuds serve as framing for the front window. We spaced them 17 3/4 apart so that their centers were 61 and 79 1/4 from the rightside of the wall (adjust for different window sizes).   Set the front wall in place, butted up against the side walls and flush with the edge of the plywood floor. Nail the front wall to the floorwith 16d 3 1/2 common nails. Make sure the front and side walls are plumb and nail their end studs together with 8d 2 1/2 commonnails. Step 5: Porch Posts  Cut three 4 x 4 x 6' 2-1/2 pieces of lumber rated for outdoor use for porch posts. Cut a 3 1/2 -long by 1 1/8 -deep notch at the topof the front face of each post. The easiest way to do this is to make a series of 1 1/8 -deep cuts in the face about 1/2 apart, break outthe cuts and clean out the excess wood with a 2 -wide, sharp chisel.Cut 5 1/2 -long, 1 1/8 -deep notches on the bottom front faces of the posts, at the bottom left side of one post and at the bottom rightside of another post.Stand the left post inside the rim joists at the front left of the playhouse. The notches will allow the base of the post to be flush withthe left and front rim joists. Have a helper hold the post plumb. Secure the post to the floor frame by nailing through the rim joists withfour 12d 3 1/4 common nails. Repeat for right post.   Stand the center post inside the front rim joist with its center at 50 from the right side of the frame. The notch allows the base of thepost to be flush with the front of the rim joist. Secure it to the rim joist with two 12d 3 1/4 common nails.   Step 6: Top Plates  Insert one 2 x 4 x 8' into the top notches of the front posts as a ledger board. Check that the posts are plumb and secure the ledger toeach post with two 2 1/2 #7 deck screws.   Copyright 2004 Martian Auctions 148
