I’ve been planning this playset for nearly a year now and it is now finally in the making. I have built up some walls to level the play area using 6×6 PT timbers that were reclaimed from a school playground that was being renovated. Some of the lumber for this project came from a used playset that I bought for a couple hundred bucks last fall (mostly for the slide and swings). The rest of it I got off of CL for free from what used to be a redwood deck (I’ve also made some raised garden beds out of it – see my blog in Garden Tenders). I’ll probably only be using the PT lumber for this project though. My original design had a lower roof as well, but I decided the space would be better used as a balcony for the playhouse instead.
After leveling the dirt and laying some footings for the posts, construction has finally begun. Pics on the next post.
