Playhouse Ladder Drawing

Here is the drawing for the playhouse ladder.  The drawing title says "Stairs," but I should have used the word "ladder."  I didn't get to work on the playhouse today or sketch, so this drawing will have to do.


  1. First of all, nice job on the playhouse! I can see you put a lot of thought into your design, which I can appreciate. I stumbled upon your blog when searching for stair ladder ideas for my kids' treehouse (the ladder we inherited when we bought the house is too steep for little ones). Anyway, I was wondering if you (and your kids) were happy with the 68 degree angle and 9.5 inches rise that you chose. Those dimensions would work nicely in my application, but the total height is almost double yours. Thanks!

  2. Hi Chad,

    Thanks for your comment. I actually wish I built the ladder at a smaller angle than 68 degrees. My son is about 4 feet tall and not very coordinated, so he has to climb down the ladder very slowly. Ship ladder designs could be a good reference for you. Here is a link to one reference I believe I used when I was making our ladder:

    Good luck!

  3. That is good to know. Maybe I'll go with 60 degrees instead and keep the planned 9.5 inch rise. Thanks for the reference and quick reply!

  4. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I've read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I want to read more things about it! Preliminary costing, planning and budget preparation.

  5. Ensure that your drawing has a full scope of significant worth. (for example The majority of the qualities on your esteem scale.) You define the light source through your utilization of significant worth.New York
