Yesterday I finished this playhouse and sandbox, just in time for a bunch of kids to come use it at my son’s 1st birthday party last night. It’s from a plan in Workbench magazine, available from Rockler or PlansNow. The plan includes a swingset which I left off, and has it freestanding on 4×4 posts. I sank those 4×6 posts about 40” into cement, and used asphalt instead of cedar shingles, but otherwise followed the plan.
It’s been a big hit, and I think will get more use, for longer, than a comparably sized playground set or jungle gym would get.
The colors and style are to match the garage, which can be seen in the corner of the fifth picture.
On Rockler’s site, several people posted comments with pictures of theirs, which were very helpful in deciding to go ahead with it, and also in figuring out some of the details on which the plan was a bit sketchy.
