Site Preparation

*Please Note: Site preparation refers to the site in which you will place the complete building, it does not give specifications on the floor of your structure. Please call if you are looking for measurements for your building to have a concrete floor.

All preparatory work of the site is the responsibility of the property owner. Whatever surface you choose to place your playhouse on, that surface should extend out approximately 1’ wider on all sides of your structure. Most importantly, be sure you have a level surface for your building.

 
 

There are several ways to prepare your site including the following:

Crushed Stone- We recommend using crushed stone (3/4" clean) approximately 4-5" deep. We also advise that you have 12" of stone around the perimeter of the outbuilding to control weeds and keep moisture away from the building. Before installing the stone, you can either dig out 4" of soil and simply make the stone ground level, or you can make a frame with 4"x4"s or landscape timbers and then fill flush to the top with stone.

Concrete Pad- Another option would be to have a concrete pad installed. If you are going to have a concrete pad installed, remember to keep your pad as close to ground level as possible. We recommend that you make the pad 12’’ wider on each side of the building.

Using crushed stone or a concrete pad will increase the longevity of your building/ playhouse. Having the proper site allows needed air flow, which will keep your building/playhouse looking great for years to come!

Permits: If it is necessary to obtain a building permit or cross a neighboring property, it is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain a neighbor’s permission of the necessary permit prior to delivery.

Customer is responsible for all site prep and permits
