When we bought our house, the previous owner left the playset in the backyard.
It lasted a long time, but it started to get beat-up and dangerous, so my Dad decided to rebuild it.
Here's a few pics from that process....
The kids are so much happier with this new playset. Ever since we got close to finishing, they've been inviting other neighborhood kids to come and play on it. They're super proud of it. All we have to do now is stain it.
My Dad did an excellent job.
