Paul's Palace Castle Plan

Regular price $ 70.00 Credit Cards Accepted Sale

Raise the drawbridge and fire the coconuts, you won't take us alive!  If you wanted to go with the biggest and best, this is it.  While the other castles come in square, pentagonal and hexagonal shapes, Paul's Palace comes with a whopping 16' wide octagonal aspect, with a total width of 32' when the turrets and swing-set are taken into account.  If you have a good sized yard and a couple kids to throw around, this is what they'll want.

Stunning details packaged in a kid's ultimate clubhouse would be an underwhelming description.  A total of eight turrets surround the castle, with two more asymmetrical on each side of the castle keep.  Two trap doors, a rock wall, swing-set attachment and a spot for a 7' slide top off the fun. There will be no doubt which kid will be ruling over the household and neighborhood.
