Do you have children? Do you want to give them a safe and fun home? If so, then this blog post is for you. We will talk about eight different house design ideas that will help make your home both safe and fun. You can use these designs as inspiration for designing the perfect kids' room or play area. Luckily, using the home renovation estimating software, you can fix your budget right.
1. The Teepee
Teepees are the perfect place for your children to play, read books, and nap. They also look beautiful in any home. A teepee is surprisingly simple to make too. Here's how: Take four long sticks or metal rods that each measure roughly 5 feet in length and stick them into the ground around 8 feet apart.
The base of the teepee should be roughly 7 feet wide. Tie a strong rope between the top two rods and tie the bottom two together in an 'X' shape to create a stable base for your teepee. Now hang some pretty fabric from the top, and you're done. You can make this even simpler by buying a teepee that has already been made. You can also buy some great pillows that you can put inside the teepee.
2. The Hammock Tree
Hammocks are not only comfortable places to sit, but they're also fun for kids. Luckily, hammocks aren't expensive, and you can easily install a hammock in your garden. Here is how:
Take one long metal rod and drive it into the ground so that it is around 8 feet off the ground on either side of the area where you want to sit your hammock. Tie two strong ropes securely to each end of the metal rod and then secure them tightly to nearby trees or posts. Hang a hammock from these ropes, and you're done.
3. The Bridge
If you want to add a little fun to your garden, why not build a bridge? Every child loves bridges, and it is easy to build one yourself. Here's how:
Take five long wooden poles and place them in a line, around 3 feet apart. Secure each end of the poles into the ground using cement or sandbags. Now take two long wooden planks and lay them across these five poles you have placed in the ground. Voila. You now have a bridge for your children to play on, and it will make a beautiful addition to your garden.
4. The Playhouse
If you have enough space in your garden, then a playhouse is perfect for kids. It gives them the chance to feel like they are living in their own home, and it also encourages them to use their imagination. There are many different types of playhouses you can choose from what suits your house best.
5. The Tree House
If you have plenty of trees in your garden, then a treehouse is perfect for kids to play in. They are fun to build, too - if you know how. Here's how:
Take six long wooden poles, drive them into the ground, around 6 feet apart. Make sure that they are deep enough to support your weight, or else you will fall through. Now take some long wooden planks and lay them across the six poles you have just inserted into the ground. Near one end of each plank, drill a hole in which you can secure it with screws. Do this at each end so that the plank does not fall off. Now take a long ladder and fasten it securely to two of the poles you have inserted into the ground, near either side of the treehouse. This will act as steps up to your new treehouse.
6. The Swing
Swings are one of the most popular items for children to play on in their garden. Here's how you can make your swing:
Take three long wooden poles, drive them into the ground about 3 feet apart and ensure that they are deep enough to support your weight. Now take six long pieces of rope - around 4-5 feet long - and tie them to the ends of each wooden pole. Make sure you knot the ropes tightly, or else it will break. Now take one end of each rope and attach it securely to a large tree around 5 feet away from each swing. Ensure that it is strong enough to hold your weight before you do this, though. Each piece of rope will now act as a swing for your child to enjoy.
7. The Merry-Go-Round
A merry-go-round is perfect for any age of children because it provides hours of fun. It also helps them develop their hand and eye coordination skills too. Here's how:
Take four long wooden poles and place them evenly apart around 3 feet outside. Ensure that any surface you put the poles into is very firm because otherwise, they will fall over. Now take some long wooden planks and lay them across these four poles. Attach two heavy-duty ropes to the outer side of one end of each plank - make sure these ropes are long enough to weave through the whole merry-go-round and secure them tightly at each end. This will prevent the boards from falling off and knocking your child over. Now take two heavy-duty rings and attach them securely - with screws - to the outer side of one end of each plank. Take a piece of rope, weave it through the rings, and then attach them to one end of a long pole that is fixed securely to the ground. Now take another piece of rope and weave it through the rings on the other end of each board, secure it tightly at each end and then tie this rope to a tree about 5 feet away from each board. This will act as a barrier so that your child doesn't fly off and bump into it.
8. The Swing Set
If you want a swing set for older kids, then this is the one for you. Here's how:
Take four long wooden poles, place them evenly apart around 6 feet outside, and ensure that any surface you put the poles into is very firm because otherwise, they will fall over. Now take some long wooden planks and lay them across these four poles. Attach two heavy-duty ropes to the outer side of one end of each plank - make sure these ropes are long enough to weave through the whole swing set and secure them tightly at each end.
There you have it. Eight fun and simple ways you can build your garden treehouse. Keep your kids entertained throughout the hot summer days with these awesome home ideas, and they will never get bored. Ensure that everything is safe and secure so that no one gets hurt and happy imaginative playtime.
