Build a playhouse for kids is a fun project. You can see see how happy they are when you have finished the project. I was inspired to build a playhouse using cardboard when I saw my niece and nephew playing used cardboard that I have at home. So, at that moment I thought about what if I make something creative by using all these cardboards. Then, an idea pop up in my head which is to make a cardboard playhouse that can cheered up the whole room. Thus, you don’t need expensive materials to build it. Later I will explain what kind of material that I used to make my cardboard playhouse. 

Dimensions of the Cardboard House for Kids

The first thing that I do before building this playhouse is making a measurement. I used 3d software because it easy to see how the design look like. Here you can get the dimensions of it.
