The 6x6 and 8x8 Red Summit swing set plan bring simple design and minimal material costs to the forefront, while still providing a load of fun for children off all ages.  A perfect backyard family project for novice builders who are looking to get their feet wet.

A simplified re-imaging of our Molly's Playset design, this DIY playset plan features an elevated platform which one or two slides can be attached too.  Included in the design is a ship ladder, rock wall and 12' swing set arm designed to support 3 swings.  A gable roof provides shelter from the sun and rain, while the bottom can be used as a sand box.
