Looks Great. Where did you get the slide from?

The slide was a $100 craigslist find a couple of years ago. Its a commercial slide, took some creativity to mount, which I didn't get in pictures due to the rain.

Thanks everyone. Big project in time, effort, and expense. Not counting the slide, I'm $4500 in the playhouse. I'm actually $5100 out of pocket, but the rest is tools- mainly a framing gun replacement and paint sprayer. I have a few things to return, but also have to buy door knobs and a couple small things. I didn't keep good receipts on the swingset, but I'm $400-500 there if memory serves. I was evaluating this against something like a nice Tree Frogs set which is around $5k so I'm ok with the spend. I think I got more for the money.

Great work Dad. Just a word from a guy that has done this very thing. Check it for yellowjackets often. My daughter used hers 3 times and hasn't been back in it since getting stung. Big waist of time and money for me. Hope your turns out better.

You sir, have a serious set of skills. Hats off to you, I certainly couldn't make what you did.
