Do you have two children who love their own space and perhaps partake in building forts out of couch cushions and snow mounds? Maybe you have kids who simple enjoy a game of the classic standoff. It sounds like the Twin Peaks play-set plan is just the ticket!
Composed of two identical towers connected by a 2nd level bridge, this plan is designed to provide children their own space when they don't feel like sharing, but still provides a path to the other when the peace treaty is eventually signed. Either way there is a lot of fun to be had.
A total of 180 square feet of play space provides amble room for any kind of activity, including swinging, rock wall climbing and taking the spiral slide down to the ground. Kids also love trap doors, which is why there this plan includes two! Overall basic in design but loads of fun, the Twin Peaks play-set plan is easy to build and will provide copious amounts of fun backyard memories!
