Mine was quite high at 1500. I based the height asst what was required for the slide plus a raise under the landing.
What an inspiring project and topic @Yorky88. I am currently building a cubby house out of pallets and taking plenty of ideas from here.
This will be my second attempt at one, so I'm hoping to add a few extras on this time. I would like to make a little half pallet shop off to the side, with baskets hanging from it for vegetables and goods. Since I rent I'm getting concerned it will start to become cumbersome to move if needed. I thought maybe I could make the shop section not permanently connected to the house, so they can be separated if needed.
The modular nature could allow me to construct additional segments as my daughter grows (Only 14 months now).
Here's my progress so far.
Hey @MitchellMc thats looking great mate well done. It’s always hard when renting but making it in a modular design is a great idea. Depending on how much room you have to play with you could do a few different options. You could simply build 1 wall as a shop front facade that attaches to the existing cubby that your daughter can go behind and sell her pretend goods. And knock up a few small trolleys to (have in the store) as shelving.
Another option would be that you build another cubby exactly the same as what you already have and make it so that you can join it to your existing cubby using a couple of over head rails that you could hang a swing off of if there is enough height and you have enough space
Ours is changing and growing all the time. Foundations and framework are fixed but the walls and activities are always changing. We just made a cargo net this weekend instead of the climbing wall
Hi @MitchellM, I hope this message reaches you - I know the post was a couple of years ago now.
I've just stumbled across you cubby house - and love it! I think it's the perfect size for our small backyard.
You mentioned you used 8 pallet's - did that include the upright posts for the framing?
I'm a complete newbie when it comes to DIY but thought this isolation season is the perfect time to attempt to build my son a cubby house!
Fingers crossed I'll hear from you soon
Hi @missymundt. Thanks for your feedback! Out of the 8 pallets there will be plenty of pieces to make the uprights. On this cubby I did however use additional timber to save time. A few post previously to yours, you will see I am currently building another similar cubby. It uses uprights sourced from the pallets.
Have fun building your cubby, feel free to ask any other questions you have.
