Its been a while since my last project post so I figured I’d check in with some progress to share.
My grandaughter turned 2 recently, and we decided to build a playhouse/playground for her.
And if you get the meaning of the first picture, her sibling/s as well…
Long story short…kinda.
We had a pool at my son’s house. Insurance company gave us hassles and with the up keep cost, my son decided to scrap it. We were left with a free standing deck. The wife and I brainstomed what to do with it and decided to create a playground with a playhouse. I said to her, you buy the slide and pick out the house you want and I’ll build it. So she bought a big yellow twisting tube slide and my fate was sealed. First, I shoveled 24 tons of top soil into the the recess of the yard where the pool was. Planted grass. Then it was off to the lumber yard. That was the easy part.
My wife handed me a stack of pictures she found on the net and I really took a shine to one. I enjoy a challenge.
It’s not finished yet so the next few posts will bring you up to speed. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
-- I cut it twice and it's still too short!
