Absolutely Perfect. I love it! Nicely done! Did you have plans or did you design it yourself?

Thank y’all for the kudos!!I actually bought a set of plans for it from Winfield (I think). It was super simple once the “chassis” was built the rest was pretty intuitive. It you buy the plans don’t bother with the hardware kit. Not worth the money for 9 bolts, nuts and some washers.

Ok, so here is the site for,the plans.http://www.thewinfieldcollection.com/product/Truck_Play_Structure_Wood_Plans/Play_Structures
If y’all have worked with PT lumber you know it is WET-WET-WET! So, if you can let it dry a bit it makes all the measurements ans slip joints much easier to assemble. I, of course, didn’t have drying time since it was a last minute idea. Not a lot more difficult but the floor boards were tricky to “squeeze” into the allotted frame size.Still a hoot to build!
Thanks again to all for the kind comments.

That’s a cool idea. I’d be a happy kid if I were him. The logo emblem is a great touch, too.
