Abstract

The purpose of a playhouse is to provide a comfortable place for the veterans family to bond and play. The intention of our project was to develop a procedure for reducing waste, cost and production time to build a single playhouse. To achieve this, we determined high quality materials that are less expensive than those currently used, reduced material waste from each build, and identified a standardized construction method to reduce building time and cost. Completion of this project resulted in a blueprint with optional, alternative materials and dimensions, step-by-step assembly instructions, including videos, for HFHMWGW and the volunteers to use, and a formal report outlining the results of the methodology.
