Specifications:

The Discovery fort is 5' x 5' (deck floor) and rests approximately 5 feet off the ground. It's designed for children under the age of 12 and can support over 250lbs! All-bolt construction (no nails to work loose), patented bracketing system, 4x4 framing and other strengthening features are used to insure the strongest sturdiest 'Build-it-Yourself' playset. Anchor rods and/or supports are never needed with Plan-it Play kits.

The Discovery's dimensions are 17'W x 8'L x 10'H (17' x 13' x 10' with slide). A six foot safety-zone perimeter is recommended around our playsets (3 feet minimum). The ladder steps are wide and flat designed around our powder-coated 14 gauge brackets (hardware included). Our swing belts and chains are 'extra-duty', near commercial grade, and are plastisol coated to prevent pinching of the skin or fingers. Each kit has an easy to follow 3D illustrated manual which includes a lumber purchase/check sheet.

Approximate lumber cost is $450. View lumber purchase sheet below.

  1. Well built, pretty easy to assemble. Kids love it 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on Jun 24th 2019)

    The set itself is well built and is solid. My kids love it. It was in large part enjoyable to build!
    Definitely buy the impact wrench they recommend you purchase. I got one for about $40 at a local tool & freight store-- saved lost of time and arm wrenching. Buy a 1 1/4" forstner bit when drilling the holes instead of a spade bit. It makes the depth measuring easier.

    I've gotten lots of compliments on the set.

    With that said, there were some errors in the instructions and some steps missing altogether, e.g. not knowing you have to trim off part of the ladder post in order for it to fit between the center post and the either left front post or right front post, and there were a couple spots where you ended up having to drill that they didn't tell you to do so, and one of the directions says to drill a hole 1" deep with the spade bit, yah...no way that would work, I had to make it 1.5" deep.

    It took me probably 20 hours to do so, only because I worked on it as time allowed, but it saved me a couple thousand dollars doing it myself.
