A Pittsburgh Handyman,
THE PAPA BEAR!
Our BIGGEST Set!
TWO DECKS! Climb up into the lower 4-foot deck. Then it's one giant step or two smaller steps to get onto the upper 5-foot deck . It's like two rooms up there!
BALCONY! On the upper deck. Pirates call this a lookout. It's also a quiet place to sit and read a book.
ROCK WALL! STEP LADDER! PICNIC TABLE!
TWELVE-FOOT SWING BEAM!
The short slide, from the lower deck is standard.
But this set can accommodate the long slide from the upper deck.
You can trade in your short slide for a long slide, or you can have BOTH!
THESE PICTURES ARE NOT TO SCALE!!!
The basic tower is 8 x 5, with two decks, and with a balcony extending off the upper deck.
The swing beam is 12 feet long, and must come off the long side of the tower, opposite the balcony.
The "A" is at 9 feet.
Slide(s) : You can keep the standard slide, or upgrade to the long slide, or take BOTH slides.
The long slide adds about 7 feet. It must come off the upper deck.Rarely, it can come out of the balcony, but then the balcony doesn't looklike a balcony. It cannot come out the third side, which would be in the swing path.
The short slide adds about 5 feet. It must come off the lower deck. Itcan come off the end, or off the balcony side, but NOT the swing side.
You also have a step ladder and a rock wall. Each adds only 2 feet.
Monkey bars add 8 feet, and go above the step ladder. Thisway, the steps and the monkey bars use the same fence gap.
The cargo net adds 4 feet.
A BIG Example
Monkey bars sticking out in the foreground, a long slide sticking out away from you, the swing beam sticking out to your right.
This site had to be leveled by a landscaper. The square is 23 x 23, and it's just enough. It fit better when we placed it diagonally, so everything sticks out into a corner. Note the leveling blocks under the tower behind the rock wall. Even with grading you don't get perfectly flat. The landscaper had to allow for drainage.
As the lady said, 'We were able to get the landscaping and the playset for the same price as the Amish set, which was only for the playset.'
