Hi,
I went about building the play fort a bit backwards, we were gifted a slide by a friend who was moving. The slide languished in the side yard for a few months when I finally decided to build something so that my kids could use it.
I bought your plans a bit over a week ago and have spent the last week building the kid's play fort. I'm a novice and found your plans to be perfectly suited for a beginner.
I made a few alterations, I left out the climbing wall (my kids are 2 and 4, I didn't thing they'd enjoy this yet), extended the shorter wall to make the fort a square (this required a re-do of the floor plan as well, for which I received some much needed advice from a friend in construction), went with some cheap plywood for the roof, and made stairs rather than the ladder (which makes it easier for my 2-year-old to get up). All-in-all I'd say it turned out pretty great and the kids love it.
Thanks!
