My father in-law and I finally got this massive swing set completed. It has two towers, monkey bars, 1 tire swing, 2 swings, 2 slides, and a very happy 6 year old.

Built out of standard treated pine. Was a fun project on to the next.

That is a pretty awesome looking swingset. I am willing to bet that she will be very happy on it for some years to come.

Looks like a good one for the kids to play on. Did you design it yourself?

It took about 30 to 40 hours to get it done. Took a day to pre-cut all the wood. I used a PlayStar plan but was able to find the hardware and slides from an overstock freight company. The swing retail would have cost upwards of $2000 but we were able to build it for under $700. If you live in the Kansas City area and want to build a swing check http://www.overstockfreightinc.com/ we saved a lot of money by getting most of the swing parts there.

Wow, thanks for that link. A playset is currently on my to do list and that’s got the better prices than i could find anywhere else.
