DIY summer hut for recreation and children’s entertainment
This summer hut is DIY work as nice gift to children
Greetings to all homemade people and those who just dropped in to visit IncredibleTinyHouse. Surely many of you, but what can I say, all of you in childhood at least once built a hut, and built it wherever it was possible and from what was at hand. Sticks, branches of a board, in general, everything that caught the eye were used.
This children’s fun is still relevant now, I often saw how the guys, especially during the summer holidays in the villages, make various buildings. That is why I want to bring to your attention one version of this design. The author built it in the backyard of his plot for his children. Running into the front I will say, in the house-hut, which he got, and children can play, and adults can relax there. And so, let’s not waste time, let’s get started.
The first step is to prepare the site and make the frame.
Before starting construction , the author prepared the site. He cleared the area and covered it with small rubble, which he then leveled. After the site was ready, the author mounted an A-shaped frame from a bar, this is usually assembled for a swing.
The author selected the dimensions so that the children (he has two of them) would be comfortable and not cramped in the finished building, since furniture will be installed in the hut . To connect the frame parts, the author used long self-tapping screws, which he screwed in with a screwdriver.
Step two is the beginning of the sheathing.
The author screwed horizontal slats to the frame slopes with self-tapping screws, on one side two – from the bottom and one stepping back from the top about 100 cm, and on the other four, thereby dividing this side into three equal sectors. From this side, the author began cladding with metal corrugated board.
Step three – plating continued.
One by one, one by one, the author secured the required number of sheets with roofing screws.
Step four – covering the gables.
After one side was sewn up with corrugated board, the author moved on to the gables. He closed them with OSB plates, having previously cut out triangular parts of the required size with an electric jigsaw. In one pediment, the author cut out a doorway, and on the opposite, a window will be cut out.
Step five – continuing to work with the gables.
At this stage, the author, using hinges, fixed the door in the opening, and in the opposite pediment, cut out a window and glazed it.
Step six – fourth wall – lifting.
The author decided to make the second side wall transparent and lifting. From a bar, the author assembled a frame of such a size on self-tapping screws so that it would fit closely between the upper and lower rails on the frame. On the frame, using overlays, bolted wavy polycarbonate. While fixing the polycarbonate, fixed the handle to raise the wall. I attached the finished frame to the upper crossbar on the door hinges.
The connection of the frame parts at the corners was reinforced with bars.
Step seven – fastening the support legs.
Since the wall is lifting, it must be fixed in the open position (in the upper position). For this, the author made two racks of the required length from a bar. And installed along the edges of the frame, bolting.
Step eight – re-planking.
As I wrote earlier, the polycarbonate frame is positioned between the bottom and top crossbars. There is space between the top bar and the ridge. The author closed it with a piece of OSB plate and fixed a solar battery on it. Looking ahead, I will say that its energy will be used to illuminate the hut.
Step nine – finishing.
At this stage, the author placed a sofa and a hammock inside. I also ran the wires from the solar panel inside and connected them to two batteries, to which the LED strip is connected.
Thank you all for your attention, good luck and see you next time visiting IncredibleTinyHouse.
