Swingset Progress

I've been slowly working on the swing set.

I've restained it, moved the slide, and moved the window. The window is now on the right.

I've added a chalk board inside.

There is also a window with window sill on the other side.

Here's where I'm at right now.

I may or may not add trim around the edges. I am undecided if I want it to look more rustic. The kids want to put flooring down on the first floor, but my hubby does not. I'll decide later if I want to build a removable floor or not. It will be heavy, but it will be win win for both.

It's slowly progressing. I need to stain the inside of the new pieces, build the roof, install new handle bars, install the rope ladder (maybe), change out the toddler swing with a hanging bar or glider. I think the kids have vetoed the glider, but we'll see. I also envision a pulley system, doors on the windows, a mailbox, and railing around the first floor if I decide to add flooring.

Much to do so it will be a while before I finish.


  1. hi! I've been reading your blog for 2 days now. In fact, I had to find out from google today on how to go back to your site when I first visited you yesterday because I couldn't remember what the name of your blog is. (CTRL-H, btw.) I'm so amazed at the way you keep track of your projects at every step and the photos you've created... so pretty, so interesting. I will definitely put you on my blogging lists of people to visit often.

    You're so right, your entries do inspire :)

    BTW, you have lovely kids, too...

  2. Thanks so much! Your words are so sweet and much appreciated.
