Morning All,
Well after reading with interest the others who have completed this type of project it is now my turn..

The plan is to have two slides of a 10 foot high (6’ x 6’) tower and three swings..
I bought the two slides, swings, etc for $950..

I plan I buying wood this weekend and starting to construct..

here is the space and the reason I am building..

I built one a few months ago. The reward will be seeing how much fun your kids have on it. What kind of wood are you using? Can’t wait to see the progress.

Update
I went and bought the wood today, though it wont be delivered till next Thursday, gives me one more week to regret trying to build this myself..
Came in a little over budget ($800 wood, $100 worth of bolts, screws, etc), mainly due to the Trex, definitely wanted to be as environmentally responsible as I can..
I will scan the plan in shortly, you will have a good laugh, I am not the most diligent builder, kinda like skiing in the trees, got to be ready (or not ready) when a tree approaches..

Enjoy the weekend..
