Sorry about this everyone. I got a little side tracked a little over 400 days ago and forgot to post the completion of the play set for the kids. The last thing I showed was the completed floor with the slide leaning up against it. Well, over the next few day after that, I got the railing up and got everything finished. here are a few shots of the final stages of construction as of the beginning of summer last year.
Here is the best shot that I have of the ladder. It is just a couple of 2×6s at an angle with 2×6 steps between them. Since this picture I have added a couple of bars on each side at the top of the ladder so they have something to grab on to.
I do not remember if I said this or not already, and I am too lazy to go back and look. All of this was constructed of 2x material. The only treated lumber in the whole thing is the posts and the floor supports. I figure even the untreated will probably last till long after they get through playing on this.
Just a few weeks ago, I added the swing arm. I will get out tomorrow and take some pictures and hopefully get the blog post done tomorrow night. I will definitely have it done by Thursday night.
As always, thanks for looking,
