Peach Pickers Porch

Playhouses

What they’ll be talking about at the clubhouse this summer.

Up front this playhouse kit grandly boasts not so much a porch, as a sweeping covered verandah, which evokes nostalgic memories of simpler days and a slower time. Like last Saturday. It’s also a good place to dry towels. The steep roof on this great playhouse idea boldly challenges the foulest weather while providing plenty of storage space for treasured comic books and unwanted vegetables. Consider donning shutters, which can be closed during intense sessions of Hide and Seek. Browse our favourite playhouses for inspiration when it comes to yours.

Peach Pickers Porch Dimensions

PEACH PICKERS PORCH GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS CHART
A B C D E F G
BUILDING DEPTH BUILDING HEIGHT FLOOR HEIGHT WALL HEIGHT ROOF HEIGHT INTERIOR DEPTH PORCH DEPTH
7' 7' - 8 3/4" 0' - 5 5/8" 4' - 10 1/2" 2' - 10 1/4" 5' 2'
8' 7' - 8 3/4" 0' - 5 5/8" 4' - 10 1/2" 2' - 10 1/4" 6' 2'

Our measurements (i.e. 8ft. x 12ft.) are taken from the outside of the floor & wall framing, therefore, they don't include the siding, and/or sheathing.

For true interior measurements, subtract the thickness of the wall framing; 3 ½” for 2x4 walls, and 5 ½” for 2x6 walls. Note: 2 x 4 is actually 1 ½” x 3 ½” and 2 x 6 is actually 1 ½” x 5 ½” due to the properties of "finished” lumber.

Wall Plan

For true exterior dimensions, add the siding, sheathing (if applicable), and corner trim pieces. The Canexel siding is 3/8" thick, the cedar siding is 3/4" thick and the log siding is 1 1/2" thick. The wall sheathing varies from 7/16” to 3/4”. The corner trim is 3/4".

If you have any other questions pertaining to the size of your Peach Pickers Porch playhouse kit, please do not hesitate to ask us, we're here to help.

Roof Framing Plan

The Peach Pickers Porch playhouse kit has a gable roofline, which typically features a continuous ridge, with two sides sloping from the center toward the walls of the structure.

Gable roofs are much easier to frame, sheath, and finish, giving the vertical wall component of a gable roof its style, known as “gable ends”.

Ventilation is easy to install. Due to its geometry and access to gable ends, roof vents can be placed on the gable ends rather than the roof itself. Consult with your contractor or roofing company, for the most effective ventilation system for your roof.

Overhang Detail

Soffits are the cedar trim pieces that are attached to the underside of the rafter ends.
Fascia is typically the cedar 1x4 that’s used to cover the rafter tips and provide a nice straight level line for the bottom of your roof.

Foundation

The Peach Pickers Porch design is well suited for a traditional patio stone foundation. A concrete pad is also ideal for poolside applications.

Enhanced Siding Package

If you are thinking of adding insulation to your building, consider adding one of our "enhanced siding packages". It's a layer of sheathing (OSB or plywood) and house wrap (Typar and optional HomeSlicker) that provides a moisture barrier to your structure.

Interior Cedar Siding and Framing

The Bear Club style allows for a wide array of interior finishes. Our cedar siding or framing interior upgrade can be incorporated on the walls and/or ceiling, providing a warm rustic feel.
