A swing set and clubhouse are what backyard dreams are made of. This DIY version is custom built for a sloped backyard, and is made of decking lumber from a big box home improvement store. There's a childhood's-worth of adventures to be had, secrets to be shared, and memories to be made here.
This elevated clubhouse hideaway is perfect for planning adventures, creating treasures, and even spying on the neighbors. With a slide as an escape route, and a picnic table for snacks, your kids could very well spend all day in your backyard. And when they're not there, you can kick back to enjoy the breeze and a book.
With moderate woodworking experience, you can construct this sweet backyard getaway, complete with stud walls and working windows. It requires standard decking, framing, and roofing construction, and features a custom door and skylight. It's more labor intensive than other designs, but well worth it for the result.
