I recently promised the daughter I’d build her a playhouse for the garden.....I then realised I had a brick outbuilding / Shed in the garden that just stores crap.
Its a single skin yellow / sandstone brick?
built on a concrete base, the front is timber framed and some type of cladding.
I want to convert this into a nice looking playhouse.
My thoughts are to frame the inside and ship lap clad to cover the walls and also clad the external walls.
one internal wall to be ply lined and painted with chalk board paint as a feature wall she can draw on etc,
Am I safe to do this without any risk of damp / rot etc?
anythng to consider when framing and cladding, such as dpm / vapour barrier / insulation?
literally will just be a playhouse for the kid to use, I see full timber playhouses cost hundreds so I might as well use what I’ve got and tart it up.
i just don’t want to do it and find out it can’t breathe, moisture is trapped etc.
The Mrs says I over complicate things as it’s just “a shed” and everyone has them ?
So so my plan was studwork frame each internal wall fixed to brick, clad 2 internal walls with shiplap, board one with ply, front wall to be a timber frame and clad.
2 external walls to be battened out and clad.
2 external walls are not accessible / visible so will stay just brick.
thanks in advance I look forward to everyone’s advice.
