I was given a rough sketch of what they had in mind and as usual they were happy to give me free reign to design something close to the sketch.
I started with a steel structure and added on bits and pieces as the project evolved in my mind.
|Not wanting to use any treated timber, I used steel for the main structure and later cladded the exposed steel with re purposed hardwood fence palings.|
|Hardwood fence palings used to clad the steel|
|Tree branch handrail|
I wanted to include natural timbers and used materials so I designed and built a handrail out of tree branches attached to a chain bridge I had incorporated.
|Other materials included marine ply offcuts, (and purchased full sheets), left over building materials from the high school building project from a few years before and some bluegum slabs I found under a classroom.|
The project is almost finished, there is a slide to add and a sand pit to build and I will update this post when it is complete
