Nice. Is that one a kit or your own design?
Either way, looks like the kids are going to have a fun place to play.
That's all my own design. I mean you see these things and its like OK, a tower, arm coming off one side for a swing, slide ladder and rock climbing wall. I can do that.
All the reasonable kits (i.e. sub $3000) are really designed to be plunked down on a flat surface. As you can see, we don't have that.
Yea, but where's the speakers?
LOL, with the new grill, outdoor audio IS on my list of things to do. Just not sure how I want to implement it.
I built one for my daughter when she was about 3. She did not start really getting into it until a year later, and now she uses it all the time!
Didn't you always complain about your DIY efforts? That's really impressive. How do you design something like that? If I tried building something like that it would collapse in a week, I'm sure of it.
LOL, construction != speaker building. I'll give you a hint, every connecting board is not flush to within 1mm (nor does it need to be by any stretch). If I built speaker boxes to these tolerances though, they would look like total crap.
Yeah but it still needs to be sturdy. Not my strong point
Oh yeah, I'd say the tower will support 1,000 pounds.
Its going to have a 1x4 board roof, that's the 10% that's not done.
Just open the sliding door downstairs. 8)
Looks great, CJ. Nice work. I like the nice strong-looking fence on the downhill side; just the thing to catch a smaller kid when a larger one tosses them off the back.
Gotta keep them from rolling into the street, I'm not paying for someone's busted grill and headlight.
Looks great, CJ. Take a moment and check your homeowner's insurance before the neighbor's kids come over. :x
Neighbors kids are my age, not too worried
Even more important then for you to consider Denton's point. 20-something or 30-something males, beer, BBQ and big ass swing set can all add up to DANGER WILL ROBINSON! :lol:
LOL, they don't live there David.
Nice work! We built a pergola on uneven ground a few years ago and it was a bitch getting it to look right. Your girls will love that.
