Breaking down An Outdoor Playhouse
Outdoor playhouses come in all sizes, colors, and shapes. Children can spend hours in their playhouses. Depending on size, there may be enough space for a small bed, table & chairs, and other accessories. Some playhouses are integrated with slides, porches, stairs, and fireman poles. There is no doubt, your children will enjoy their playhouse until they outgrow it. At this point, you will need to decide the best disposal route. Fortunately, some of the top brands utilize thick plastic that is guaranteed to withstand the test of time.
The easiest way to get rid of a preowned playhouse in good condition is by donation. To avoid a full disassembly, offer the preowned playset to a neighbor, friend, or co-worker. Most playsets weigh around 100 pounds, which could easily be handled by at least two adults. If you opt to go this route, you can always detach the slide and other external features. This should free up some space and lighten up the burden during transportation.
Disassembly is unique for each playhouse. Some designs are much easier to disassemble than others. The key is to detach the fasteners that hold each component in place. We recommend starting with the roof, working your way down to the walls, windows, doors, and floor.
Larger playhouses with swings, slides, and monkey bars must be fully or partially disassembled before hauling. You may need to make several trips from your home to the donation drop-off.
