This took longer than I had planned. It wasn't that it was more work than I thought it would be, I just mis-judged how much time I had to work on it.
You start with a trailer load of treated lumber......
Cut it to specific and various sizes according to plan......
Add a specialized part or two if you have them......
And if your lucky, you end up with something like this.
Four levels, the two top levels being more than high enough to fall off of and break something.
Monkey bars, tunnel, climbing rope, swing, what more could you want?
The far end needs a "Pirate Ladder" or what I would call a "net ladder". Trouble is they don't make them anymore. So we're looking at maybe a home made rock wall.
The full story is that waaayyy back in the early 90's, I bought the plans for this thing, along with the tunnel as a "kit". We then bought the lumber and built it for my oldest son.
Well, 20 years later....youngest son wanted a 'fort'. We still had the plans, and the old set was pretty used up. So, we took the tunnel off and started again.
You can't buy these plans anymore. In fact, the only 'kits' I can find come with pre-cut ready to assemble wood. Trouble is they don't make a kit like this. All I can find only get about 4 feet above ground. Do you know how hard you have to try to break something if your only 4 feet up?
So, here we go. Since the company doesn't sell this kit anymore, and you can't get plans. And since I bought them and own them, I've decided to scan the plans as a pdf and post them here. Maybe someone else would like to build something like this. If anyone is interested in that let me know and I'll put them up here for use.
Just don't blame me when something gets broken.
