Remove the screws and wooden boards at the top of the pallets, that will be the windows of the playhouse.
Step 3: Create an entry to the playhouse.
Dismantle a pallet in two, lengthwise, to create the doors of the structure. Once you have two identical pieces of pallets, secure each of them with two door hinges.
Step 4: Pick the right roof.
Using the pallet skids, with clean cuts and mount two pieces of wood at each corner of the house to create a flat roof. You can also opt for a sloping roof, it's up to you! Make sure that the structure is stable and use a fabric to finalize the roof.
Step 5: Finalize the playhouse with paint!
