Rather than spend somewhere around $2000.00 for a prefabricated playground set, I opted to purchase some lumber and build one myself. I copied a couple design elements, bought all the parts separately (including lumber, slide, swings, and attachments), and did the fabrication and construction myself. I saved at least $600 to $700 doing it this way.
The kids absolutely love it, and I got a great feeling of accomplishment from it. I used to build half pipes all the time in my skateboarding days. So I knew this was in me. I did have a couple injuries during the construction, as described in the video. Thanks to my Uncle Kevin, my mom, my wife, and my kids for helping me.
My apologies for some of the text being hard to read, WMM is a crap program, but its free, so I am running with it.
