HOW TO BUILD A SIMPLE $8 PVC SPRINKLER

DIY PLAYSET THIS MINIMAL HOUSE

You've probably seen our phase one of our backyard DIY playset if you've been reading here for the past couple of months. If not, this is our DIY playset we decided to build when we couldn't find anything that was a good fit for us and our space. We wanted something truly unique and most importantly wanted to cut costs. The durability of this playset is untouched by anything manufactured. 

Over the weekend, go figure the last weekend of summer (palm to forehead), we decided to install a DIY PVC sprinkler on their playset. We had tried to rig the regular sprinkler on the top two front posts and it just wasn't working. We spent all of our time trying to put it up just right, only for a toddler to tear it down two seconds later. Needless to say this project should've happened months ago, but you live and you learn. Here's a few of the quick photos I grabbed of the process!
