Bamboo Play Structure
The Healy-Browns came to me looking to build a unique plays structure in their back yard for their two boys highly adapt in the art of climbing. The only constraint a back yard not big enough for a Volkswagen Bug.
This back yard bamboo play structure is constructed using a tensegrity tri-pod. It includes two hanging platforms, cat walk, bamboo sanctuary, and several axes rope ladders. A climbing rope hangs between the two platforms for a quick escape and rope swing. One of the best features of the bamboo wonderland is a long cat walk that exstends into the bamboo thicket with walls of live bamboo. If the sun of the upper platforms proves to hot this cat walk is a perfect shaded cooridoor to chill out and spy on the action in the back alley. If your monkey worthy a sly exit goes through branches to the ground level, a magician would never know the better.
The structure foot print takes up no more than 80 square feet which allows for easy axess and foot traffic to the back garage exit.
