The Sky Sentry playset plan was designed to get straight to the fun and maximize play space for a no compromising backyard playground experience. It's open concept layout and 7' standard deck height allows for framing and attaching up to eight different accessories and addons.  A 3rd level crow's nest elevates children over 15' in the air to catch a good glimpse of the neighborhood.  Also included are instructions to frame a 12' swing set attachment.  Don't forget to also add a tire-swing underneath.

If you're looking for an elevated playset concept, but also want a playhouse to go along with it, check out our Elevated Adventure Plan.  For a smaller open concept playset, see our Red Summit design.
