Play Structure Thread - Build your own or buy a kit?

Kid in question (not needed just showing how awesome he is)



Playstructure type deal



So does anyone make these kinds of playstructures themselves or do we all just buy the kits and build them from a kit?

/1st time dad

//kid just started walking

///need something for him to climb and fall off of while i watch from lawn chair


I'm gonna post up what I build or buy, but I'd appreciate any advice you veterans would offer.

Thanks!

I hear there is a Chinese guy roaming around the country building these really awesome sheds. I'll bet he could knock out a play structure fairly easy and cheaply.

False. Everyone knows that subterranean play shelters are all the rage these days.

I've since painted it in rainbow hues and attached a chicken coop.

My neighbor bought a kit. I watched him put it together. They might as well have given him an acorn so he could grow an oak tree, cut it down, and carve it into a jungle gym. It was a ****ing joke.

Probably a lowe's or Home Depot kit, as they basically give you some plans and materials and a material list for a minimal price. The big ones in boxes like I got from Sam's are a pain in the ass and time consuming to construct, but they're very doable for most people.

Traditional backyard setups are over-programmed and a waist of money for what you get...

The future is "Berliner" type of systems.

I will agree that there's nothing worse than building a huge playset, and the kids not playing on it (we currently are suffering that issue with our trampoline). My kids, though, play like crazy on our playset and have for years. But I have two boys separated by 2 years, and they're both into imaginative play. It's a rocket ship, fort, restaurant, store, etc....

If all they used it for was swinging and climbing, there would definitely be better options. I do question the affordability of the "berliner" style sets, though. Somehow I think they're a little pricier than my $1,200 Sam's kit.
