I finally built a sandbox for the kids (just in time for winter, right?). I've been meaning to all summer, and planned to do it as soon as our landscaping was done in the back yard.
It took longer than I thought to finish up the landscaping, and after that, there were a few other more pressing projects. But, the bottom line is that it's done.
I got the plans from the Home Depot website. It cost about $85 for the materials, which I realize is complete overkill for a sandbox. However, I wanted to have at least one thing in the back yard that wasn't a plastic monstrosity, even if they only use it a few times.
Actually, I'm sure it will be worth it. The kids love to play in the sand. Anyway, here are some pictures of the process.
