Playset

Don’t be surprised at the increase in play date requests. This playset calls for a slide and 2 swings and features a sturdy frame, 2 ladders, and a crow's nest peer-out point with a raised platform.

It is an outdoor fixture that will last and have the whole family spending more time outside.

You'll start with the construction of the A-frame supports, then move on to assembling the main skeleton. After that is raised, you will attach floor joists and install decking, and clad outside walls.

Make sure to take proper safety precautions including always wearing gloves, goggles and a dust mask when you're cutting or sanding.

Before you get started, please read our info on safety, fasteners and building tips.

Before building, please consult our Terms of Use.
