It is fair to say that the scale got a bit out of hand. Funny how things looks small on the ground. What is another 2 feet here and there…?

12’ wobble bridge form the grass to the main fort
600 square feet of playground
2 rock walls out of view, one for each platform
Tire swing is the biggest hit
Blue slide is FAST!, Green slide is kind of lame.

I used composite material for the flat surfaces other than the bridge so snow does not rot out the boards.
Redwood and cedar make up the remaining materials. And screws…. lots of screws.

It is always good when the father is just a bigger and more skilled kid than the smaller ones. Hope they
have fun. Thank you for sharing. Know what you mean by lots of screws.

Thanks. I am 6’6” and fit the playground well. So to my 5-year old, this is a massive fort.

Wow Brian, that is great.

Give your kids some waxed paper and tell them to sit on it as they go down the slides. That or get some auto wax for the slides. Guaranteed to go faster!
