We are in the process. We had to fill in a hole with dirt. We are framing it out then putting pea gravel down. It will house the trampoline, swing set, sand box. It's just not near done yet

my husband just put in all the poles today with his parents. But I don't think anyone is helping him for the rest of the weekend, so I'm a little nervous for how far he'll get. But the boys are stoked!

What all are you doing?
My husbands doing it all on his own but he's doing amazing esp with working so hard. He filled in 13 yards of dirt into a hole that he had to carry from our driveway to back yard a million times

I don't have pictures. DD has a play room. Toys R Us has some indoor playgrounds & trampolines that we bought for her. Then we have a castle, chalk board and a little painting area. Nothing very creative actually. :?

I'll post pics of the blue prints in a sec. hubs is emailing them to me.



Its a circular structure, with platforms raised all the way around. And a bar off of it for a set of swings. For our youngest son's birthday (which was last weekend), my inlaws got us rock wall climbing pegs, monkey bars, a slide, and two steering wheels. We also have five bags of sand, and one of those turtle sand boxes that will go under the entire structure.



And this summer we're building a big privacy fence around our property. I'm SO stoked.

It's just a pre-fab one from Costco that you bring home and build, but he loves it.

I saw this thread yesterday and forgot to post in it. And then saw your progress thread today and it reminded me to post pics in this one. :lol:



And except for like not having to cut the wood to size, you have to build the entire thing, so he'd still get his hands dirty and whatnot. Lol.

ha! glad I reminded you. I love seeing projects come to fruition.



I think my hubs was using the "do it yourself" excuse so he could design the whole thing himself

OH EM GEE, I seriously worry about that. But the boys are so excited to play on it, i think he will follow through, just to see them be happy. We bought paint for it today, too, and I told him that as long as it was painted and DONE within two weeks
