Hey Sis!

That is totally AWESOME!  You have a better playground inside than I do outside! 

To all of you Craftser people,
3Rays is my actual sister and there is a good reason that her friends in college called her "Handy Smurf"!  Grin

Great job!

Wow, that's really cool! Being a californian, I never would have thought of such a thing. You're a very thoughtful and creative mom. What a great play room!

This is the solution I've been looking for!  I am pregnant with my 4th child and we have issues figuring out our space dilema.

So I want to do something similar but I have a few questions.

How is your holding up still?  Do you have any advise?  I saw that you mentioned playing up there yourself, so obviously its very sturdy.  What do I need to know to ensure mine won't be wobbly?

I'm so excited to get started!

First of all, thanks for all the kind words, you guys are great!

I have to say hello to my brother who posted earlier... what a riot! I didn't know you lurked these boards too!

And to yonorris14:

Ours is till holding up great! It was constructed to be free standing, although I ended up securing it to the wall with a couple screws into wall studs just to keep it from creaking when we go up or rubbing at the paint on the wall. I used 4x4's as the legs, 2x6's for the spans, and 2x4's underneath for horizontal support. Most of these parts were put together with large lag screws (definately recommend for strength) or fence brackets. All parts were painted in the garage and allowed to dry before bringing them in (fume issue). I used recycled hard core doors for the top (nice and thick, very sturdy), and carpeted over that. You could use plywood instead, but if you can find old flat hard core doors, they are really nice. The vertical uprights for the rail are 4x4's with about 1.75"x6" notched out at the bottom... I'll just post a few more pictures so that makes more sense. I used 1/2 inch dowels for the vertical fencing, drilling holes into a 2x4 for the top rail, and a 2x2 for the bottom. Make sure you glue them in and they won't bow as much if someone leans on them.

Good luck! Post pictures if you build one! I'd love to see it.
