Topic tags/keywords: swingset outdoor play child children

I need to design and build an outdoor swing set for my grand-daughters. Not big, but strong and reasonably easy to dismantle and move when they do move to a larger home. I thought I had seen a post about building an A-Frame side support for a swing set but now I can’t find it. I know I can do one myself, but would like to view some that others have built.

Have you had any luck finding plans?

No, but to tell the truth I haven’t been looking. A few other projects have come up to put this one a little further down the list.

I built a nice swing set about 8 years ago and I bought a kit that gave me all the hardware and plans. I just had to buy the wood locally. A search for a swing set kit may find one of these for you.

I have seen some of the kits and my son and I agree that’s a sensible way to go. The whole kit will cost less than buying the oomponents separately.

Have your say...
