Skyfort Playset Installation – Day 23 (4/21)

No work on Wednesday due to other activities, and Thursday was packed too – but after I got home and put the kids to bed, I wanted to at least get in a little bit of work, even though it was almost dark.

I had the monkey bars assembled, so I went ahead and attached them to the playset.

This picture was taken the next day but shows the monkey bars. They just drill in to the playset and then there are stakes that have to be rotated and put in the ground (and then bolted to the base of the A-beam.

The only tricky part was trying to get them level. Since we did not level out the ground before we started (though our ground is what someone from The Princess Bride might call “mostly” level), it’s always an adventure. Especially since we had dug and lowered the ground somewhat to get the main clubhouse set and level.

Day 23 time: 1.0 hours
Total time: 40.0 hours
Mistakes made: 0 today (17 total)
Steps completed: 81-82 (out of 103)

  3. Skyfort Playset Installation – Choice and delivery Our family of seven had had a playset on our “list” for several years before we actually purchased one.

  5. Skyfort Playset Installation – Day 24 (4/22) So Thursday night I took a look at what was going on the next day and decided to take the day off of work. Building the playset was not the only reason, but it was definitely one factor. Also the kids were off school (due to Good Friday) so I thought it would be nice [...]...
