|Gonna need a bigger boat!|
Picking up the lumber. Pressure treated for the subfloor. Incidentally, if anyone is thinking of building a playhouse shoot me an email. I did a comparison shop, Lowes VS Home Depot, where I went on both sites, Added everything I needed to each cart, exactly the same items, and HD won on this one. Ended up saving 87.00 just by doing a little research pre. One of the hardest things for people to do when gettting started in woodworking, is buying the actual wood....I have the shopping lists with the sku numbers, whereby someone can walk in, grab a cart, and even hand the shopping list to an employee and they will know which is the exact right wood needed for the project. I'm going to by price comparisoning on each project from now on. Sidenote: As I said, HD was cheaper, EVEN though I used my 10% coupon!I've been looking at dog houses online, and very few, if any, meet my requirements. Yes, there as sites that will customize a gnormous doghouse for me, to the tune of 3,000 smackolas. Yikes. Too too much. I started looking into building, a mini house basically, and initially it was going to be a backyard shed, with pillows on the ground. Not good as heat rises, the dogs would be freezing, so I needed to lower the ceiling. While browsing KOW, genius that I am, I came across the playhouse plans. Perfect! roughly 6 ft high, and between her plans, and BuildEasy.com, I've come up with the perfect design for my dogs.
Total spent so far.....280.
