    i ended up with $400 invested. im tickeled pink. one at menards had a clubhouse a slide 2 swings. total kit cost $1,300.00 i have a few more things to do but mostly done. want a door on the clubhouse. and a couple support boards to keep the roof 1"x6"'s togather.

    a little ceder mulch to keep mud down and stepping stones under the swings.

    the rope i got 1" x 50' on clearence for $5.99 down from $10. bought two. poly so it wont rot fast. i weaved and tied the rope ladder by hand. total cost $12. i would hate to see what a net made would run. the play accessories are high in my book. $35 for one set of swing swivels. i used 8" eye bolts through the beam with s hooks. total cost. $5 a set.

    Good job Jeremy. Only I think the stepping stones under the swing would be a bad idea. Especially if there's gonne be little ones using it. Sounds like a recipe for stitches in the eyebrow area to me.
