Do-It-Yourself Wood Fort and Swing Set Designs

Build it Yourself Plans


The Endeavor Do-It-Yourself Wood Fort/ Swing Set Plan is featured in a Better Homes and Garden DIY book called, "Playsets". Available in stores now. This design is also featured on the cover of the book. In your search for a good set of plans, keep in mind, you will not find another set of plans endorsed by Better Homes and Garden.


There are several options on the internet for do-it-yourself swing set/ fort plans.. As a consumer be aware of what you buy. Most are from well known companies that teach you how to make a safe fort/ swing set combination. These professional companies utilize information taken from the Consumer Product Safety Commission Playground Safety Handbook. While it's geared mainly to commercial equipment, it does have recommended guidelines for a safe playground for residential use.

Home made systems, although designed with the best intentions, are made with entrapment areas, exposed bolts, inferior hardware, or are just plain under engineered. All of my designs voluntarily meet or exceed all safety standards set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials and the CPSC.

All designs begin as a base fort.. My instructions show step by step, how to add 2, 3, or 4 swing positions. Easy to follow do-it-yourself plans for an add-on picnic table, an inclined rock wall, and an accessory arm are also included with all plans. I've also included safety information, wood list, hardware list, detailed drawings, color pictures, and text information. Just the ticket for the novice carpenter! I've refined my specs for maximum wood usage. You'll find there is little waste.



Whether you have one of my designs, built your own, or have a manufactured fort/ swing set, my add-on plans can help you make the most of your backyard playset. You can choose add-ons like, monkey bars, picnic tables, rock walls, swing sets, and more.


You can build your own with my plans.. If you would like to build a sturdy wooden play system, be prepared to spend a minimum of $800. I offer four basic designs to build on. The links to the right of the page will take you to galleries showing how diverse the systems are, how much you can expect to spend, and the level of craftsmanship and design put into each one.
