speaking of swing sets...

... we've decided we don't want to wait around on all this house business to start building the girls' swingset. after looking around and trying to decide for over a year, phil decided to just build one himself. as you can see, he plans swingsets just like he plans photovoltaic power systems... thoroughly! we're getting started on it this weekend but it will take a week or so to get all the components and sections finished. the plan is to have a fort with a slide, monkey bars, two swings, rings, a rope ladder, and an enclosed playhouse (under the fort). stay tuned for more! p.s. click on the drawing for a bigger view.


  1. Phil never ceases to amaze me. Is there ANYTHING he can't do????? Can't wait to follow the progress of this fantastic project. The girls are SO lucky.

  2. Assemble swing set isn't that easy, It has thousands of pieces. Believe me, we bought a large swing set that is pretty much like yours from an online store lifespanswingsets.com.au, and my huby spent one week to try and failed. We had to pay couple hundreds dollars to get handy men to fix.

    Good luck!

  3. no climbing wall?? Did he forget or what? YOu mean its NOT in the shape of a rocket ship or some thing?? SOrry Phil, Its a mountain of a task anyway... good luck... I know the kids will really love it! :)
