I have mentioned before that my husband, David, is creative and is always working on a project. His projects are usually larger in scale than the ones that I tackle. I am not sure how exactly the Boy’s Fort transformation started, but it involved a lot of tools, time and trips to Home Depot. It also involved my husband’s huge imagination.
We started with the wooden swing set above. Santa brought it a few years ago , but you can also purchase this Adventure Playset online. This is an awesome play-swing set , but David thought it was time to give it a rugged upgrade. This is not a tutorial because I am not sure if I can appropriately describe what all that he did. Are you ready?
I suspect the project really started because he had just chopped down a bunch of tree branches in our backyard and needed a place to put them.
I do know that David cemented the branches on the front of the play set into the ground. He wove and nailed the other branches to cemented branches to create a “hide-out” underneath the play set. He also salvaged an old telephone pole and some floor joists to create the annex structure.
He added a full deck on the second level. This is the view look at our house. We had dinner up there a few nights ago.
It is not finished, but the boys have already enjoyed many hours of fighting pirates and capturing “bad-guys” on their new fort. David appears to be adding a third level, but I haven’t reviewed the blueprints yet. I am fully aware that this fort looks crazy, but it is a little boys dream.
Here is a another image of the before and after transformation.
I hope that one day my boys will fully appreciate all the love and time David put into building the best fort ever.
I hope you enjoyed this swing set transformation.
