    So you built this abomination?


    Just stick with glueing rocks together and hanging drywall where you canít hurt anyone.

    I save money buy using 1 inch screws to hang drywall on ceilings

    I have brought much pleasure to children with my playgrounds and I'm happy I've had the ability to give them happiness

    Weird, I was thinking that plastic slide in the middle was plenty strong enough to hold the entire structure even without the other support beams..

    Sweet. Now if you can arrange for someone to get fired and/or divorced over this, itíll be the perfect tgr thread.

    You'd think people would learn around here. First, it's Flowing Alpy with the stripper pics and now it's you with school play area shots. Too bad your next photos of the reconstruction will be from at least 200 feet away.

    The divorce will inevitably take care of itself. The handyman that built this cheap ass death trap, I wouldnít shed any tears if the school doesnít hire him again.

    My entire schoolyard, including the baseball/touch football area and the play equipment area was gravel. A little grass would have been nice.

    We mostly had fields of grass for our playgrounds. In the winter classmates would start rolling a snowball around and see how big it could get before they couldn't move it anymore. Swings were pretty dope though.

    Our playground in elementary school was mostly paved, high slide one kid fell from and cracked his skull, pipe jungle gym, swings and totters. No covered area.

    It's definitely going to make the list of "Top 5 Most Exciting Things to Happen in the Snoqualmie Building Department in 2019."
    Doesn't mean that much to me, to mean that much to you.

    Each one explainin' what each one was, to be used as evidence...
