Specifications:

The Frontier is the newest addition to the Plan-it Play family of kits. This massive playset features two levels, one at 5 feet and the upper at 7 feet. The lower deck is 4ft. x 6ft. wide and the upper is 6ft. x 6ft. wide with 7ft. of head clearance. The playset is easy to modify and fit almost any slide combination (all of which are available through Plan-it Play).

This solid structure is supported by six 4x4's - cement, ground anchors and braces are not needed. The deck boards are 2x6 lumber and can easily support the weight of several adults.

Like all Plan-it Play kits, the entry ladder is inclined 30 degrees and made from 4x4 and 2x6 lumber, never 2x4's, dowels or 1" lumber.

Bonus features include:

  • Wide entry area from the lower level to upper level, almost 6 feet!
  • Two pairs (four) of extra-long safety handles with molded finger grips.
  • Instructions for adding a picnic table and benches.
  • Instructions for building with or without slides.
  • Compatible with all Plan-it Play add-on kits (rockwall, monkey bars, etc.)
  • Built in sandbox

Approximate lumber cost is $700. View lumber sheet below.

  1. A++ DIY KIT - Frontier Wu 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on May 19th 2020)

    The DIY Frontier Wu Kit was exactly what I needed to build the perfect fort for my kids. It has two tiers of floors for the kids to play in. The structure is sturdy and amazes me how well thought out the design. I have previosly purchased and built the free standing A frame swingset from Planitplay. I would also highly recommend the A frame swingset.

    The instructions are well written and easy to follow. This probably took me about 15-20 hours over the course of multiple days to build. Most steps can be done with one person. I built it mostly by myself with no issues except 2-3 steps will require the help of another person.

    The lumber was easily found and purchased at my local lumber yard. Lumber was approximately $600-700 with delivery.

    I am currently modifying the 4'x6' base of the Frontier Wu to include another level for my kids to play and give a platform for kids to sit while playing in the 6'x6' sand box. It is a deck with 30" walls to make another small fort. The design is mostly a mirror of the 4'x6' fort above.

    I am very happy and would recommend this kit for anyone that wants to build an awesome fort or playground for their kids.
