Some people want to rely on experts and have them lead the process. Others? Well, others like to blaze their own trail. We are always glad to help you design your own playset, but some of you like to do all your research ahead of time and come prepared.

This is for you, the deep divers, the scholars, and the research enthusiasts! This is for the people who want ALL the info. 

The first part of this blog post will be a rough measurement of each main piece that extends from a King Swing’s swing set tower. (Slopey yards can increase/decrease measurement by a few inches. Dimensions are generally rounded to the nearest foot)

The second part of this blog will be a listing of the materials used in the playsets.
