My 4yr old son had been asking me to build him a Super Hero Clubhouse. He thought it was going to be outside! I added the slide and door and the back inside wall is a whiteboard. He absolutley loves it!! It took about 9 weekends, the painting was the longest task.
How did you make the slide? What materials did you use to make it "slidey?"
I'd be very interested how you did it also, thanks :)
Hi there, sorry for the delay, I didn't know anyone had commented!
The slide is simply a piece of laminated utility shelving. The laminated surface makes it slippery like a slide and eliminates the worry of splinters. Its 3/4" thick particle board and cut to match the correct angle from the bed to the floor. I then added 1x3's to make the hand rails and there are 2- 2x4's running the length of the slide underneath to support it. The slide itself is nailed to the supports underneath and the supports are cut at an angle on both ends and screwed to the bed from the inside. Its very solid!
Super cute....nice to see it decorated for a little boy..my son turns 4 in December and I'll be redoing his room. My only concern would be how much additional space the slide would take up? About how far from the base of the house front is the bottom of the slide.
From someone that has done a modified playhouse loft bed, I know how tiring and time consuming it can be! Looks great and can't show my son or he will decided he wants this one instead!
