small play area accessible by a ladder with a slide on the rear.
It also has a covered roof with shingles. This is a deluxe
swing set that is easy to build that your children will have
hours of fun playing. Can be built for a fraction of the
cost of a prefab swing set.
DELUXE CUBBY PLAYHOUSE!

breeze to build. Can be built in 1 or 2 weekends easy.
The first floor can be play room, or even be made into a
makeshift storage space, while ladder access to the second floor

This a great beginner's fort to build for
your kids. Can be built in a day! Your kids will
love it. A new one like this could run you 400 bucks or
more. This one will cost a fraction of that to build.
Easy fort playhouse has a small ladder to the second floor.
It has beams extended off the side that are perfect for a small
swing, or a small set of rings, or a climbing rope. Great
fun little house for kids.
BEGINNER'S SWING SET!
This is a basic swing set with a little
laddered play area off the side. It also extends on to one
side to allow you to hang a climbing rope or small tire.

little background in woodworking.
INTERMEDIATE SWING SET!
This is the intermediate fort swing set.
Very close in design to our deluxe swing set with the exception
of this swing set does not have a shingled roof over the play
area, which makes this a little cheaper and easier to build.
Otherwise it still has the same amount of play area with space
for 3 swings, a slide and a climbing rope.
So, why should you buy these plans for us?
Let me give you just a couple of things to think about.
Accuracy: All our plans are
CAD designed to minimum scrap and waste.
Confidence to customize: We
are including 5 of our custom jungle gym plans on one CD, along
with hundreds of other basic woodworking plans. After reviewing all of our
plans, you will have the confidence to build a jungle gym or swing set to suite your taste
and will feel comfortable making small changes here and there to fit
your needs. You should be able to use our plans to come up with a
custom jungle gym if you so desire.
Minimal fancy cuts: Standard
sized lumber is used as much as possible to minimize the amount of fancy
cuts you need to make. Little more than basic tools such as a
circular saw and miter saw are needed.
Accurate bills of material:
Each plan comes with an accurate bill of material to make your shopping
trip and cost estimation easy.
Print as many as you want: All
of our plans come on this CD in Adobe PDF format designed to be printed
on 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Print as many as you need for your jobsite.
3D ADOBE PDF FRAMING MODELS INCLUDED:
What is this you may ask? The most complicated
part of any project like this the framing, and we realize that not everyone will
understand a 2D plan. Therefore, we also include a 3D model of the
framing of each of the 5 custom jungle gym swing sets described above to accompany each 2D plan. This 3D model
allows you to pan, zoom, spin, rotate the framing of each project.
This is all included in a separate PDF file. The only piece of
software required to view this 3D model is the latest version of the
FREE Adobe Reader, version 9.2 or later. If you are using
an earlier version of Adobe Reader, you simply need to go to Adobe's
site, and download the latest FREE version.
Some people may think this is too complicated to
use. You don't need to be a CAD wizard to utilize this 3D model
with Adobe Reader. We've put up a sample video of how to view our
3D framing PDF models using Adobe Reader 9 or later, that you can view
here and on our info page:
Please note, we made this framing video on one of
our shed plans, which we sell separately, but this disk does contain the
3D PDF files of the actual swing set's shown above.
There is no other plan provider that we have seen
on eBay that provides you with a 3D framing PDF model. Just
imagine. If you are having trouble visualizing the 2D drawing, you
can simply pop up the 3D model with Adobe Reader, and spin and pan and
zoom into the section that you want to look it. It doesn't get
much easier! Please note that the 3D PDF file is a viewer only.
You can view and spin the model all you want, but you won't be able to
take measurements with it or make modifications. All the
dimensions are included in the plans themselves.
All original plans: These are
our plans, that we've developed over several years. We own them.
We own the copyright to our plans and to our 3D models. Know that
you are getting them from the right source, and that we've put extra
care and our reputation on the line with these plans.
All of these plans are very easy to use and easy
to follow. You don't need to have fancy woodworking skills or high
dollar tools to build these sheds. These are easy to read 2D plans
with 3D isometric views showing you all the critical steps you need to
follow when construction our sheds.
All plans on this CD are in Adobe PDF format.
You will need to download the latest copy of Adobe Reader to view these
plans. Adobe Reader is free for download off of Adobe's website,
and is likely already on your machine. You can view the 2D
plans with Adobe 5 or later, but to view the 3D framing plan, you will
need the latest version of Adobe Reader, version 9 or later.

That's not all you get. You
also get another 175 short guides
covering various woodworking tips! Clamping, routing, drilling, painting, cutting, sanding, finishing,
sharpening, etc etc etc.
And finally, we are including an additional
500 home fun project plans. Ranging
from toys like like waddling ducks, rocking horses, puzzles, toy cars,
etc. Also there are ornamental projects, cribs, high chairs, garden
projects, and some workshop projects. There are over 500
additional home hobby projects to keep you busy!!!!
Our plans are designed and written to
be easy to follow and understand.
You don't need an engineering degree and be able to read complex
blueprints to understand our plans. You should be comfortable with
woodworking and have good solid building skills, but our blueprints are
still designed to be easy to read.
One of the most valuable
parts of our designs, is that each design comes with a FULL
material and tool list. Our Material list makes it
easy for you to go to your local home improvement store and
quickly and easily cost out your project. Just print
it out and go to your local lumber store and quickly and
easily determine the cost of your project. Heck, the
list makes it easy enough for you to place a phone call to
many stores at once and very quickly get an idea of how much
your project will cost.
And, equally important,
is that our custom jungle gym plans are ALL ORIGINAL. Created by us. THESE
ARE ALL ORIGINAL PLANS CREATED BY ADV PLANS, NO ONE
ELSE! WE DESIGNED THEM, WE WROTE THEM. What that
means is, you will not find this plan ANYWHERE ELSE BY
ANYBODY, because we own these designs. Feel
comfortable by buying our plans knowing that you will not be
able to get them anywhere else.
AROUND! GUARANTEED! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! THIS
IS THE REAL DEAL.
Comments from happy customers:
In 1959 I purchased an
original home built “Thing” and ran it for several years on the
Willamette River. Years later it got rotten and subsequently
discarded. Now the Son of the man who originally built it from the
magazine plans in his wood shop in Milwaukie, Oregon works with me
and he helped his Dad build it in 1958. We decided to search for the
plans and if we found them; I (an engineer) would upgrade it for two
adults and build it. I bought your disk and building started last
May 25 and it was ready to launch July 20th. You are
welcome to use the photos and my “title” as a former white water
guild; River Rat Bob from Oregon. Hope you enjoy the pictures
attached. I am 60 years old but still chasing the dream as you see
from my smile in the boat.
Thank you for the great plans.
Unbelievable amount of information for the money. I can't wait to
get started. -Jeff D., New Mexico.
I built the doghouse using
the plans I purchased from you a week ago, and it was great. Easy
to read and follow, it was a great purchase. The kids helped, and
the dog just loves it. Thank you so much. It'll take years to go
through all the stuff I want to build on your CD. Andrew H., Colorado.
The jungle gym for the
kids is amazing. We bought the plans 2 weeks ago, and built the
whole thing last weekend. We are so impressed with the amount of
information shown. It is a virtual encyclopedia of plans. Thanks.
Josh L., New Mexico.
My God!! That's more
boats than I can build in a lifetime! Unbelievable! The best I
have ever seen. Thank you! Craig J., South Carolina.
I've seen plenty of plans
on boats. This is the best all around package of information I've
come across. Jake M., Florida.
This has saved me so much
time. I've spent weeks looking for stuff like this. Well
worth the few bucks to get this CD. Jimmy K., Arkansas.
I bought a CD a few weeks
ago that had a bunch of links and junk on it that was ripped off from
websites and other useless information. I thought long and hard
before trying again and buying from you. I can actually use this stuff.
I'm so glad I did. A.K., Arizona.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Why should I buy from you? There are lots of places to buy
similar stuff on ebay. What makes you so special?
What separates us from the
rest is that we want you to be happy. If you're happy, you'll buy
from us again and tell your friends. Getting one sale from you is
great, but we want the next sale from you and the next one after that.
It isn't worth a few bucks to us to have one unhappy customer. If
you are unhappy, tell us and let us try to fix the problem. How
many sellers will say that?
Yeah, so, there are lots of other sellers on ebay. Are you saying the
rest of them will rip me off?
No, of course not.
But, beware of what people sell on ebay. Many sellers on here will
charge you an exhorbitant amount for shipping. Many will
"claim" to provide discount shipping only when you contact them,
they'll tell you they'll take a quarter off the shipping price for
each additional item. We never do that. Our combined
shipping policy is clearly spelled out for those to see. No
tricky or cheap discounts.
Simple as that. Also, when comparing our films to those of
others, take note of not only the price of the item, but also the
content. You'll see that we not only offer more content per
package then our competition, and not only at the cheapest shipping,
but also at the cheapest price too.
What kind of permits, codes, restrictions, paperwork, etc., do I need
to deal with before I build your shed/garage/gazebo, etc?
answer that. Every county in every state has different
requirements. We encourage you to check with your local building
department before beginning your project. Different regions also
have different building codes and requirements. It is your responsibility that
whatever structure you build complies with those codes. Remember,
it doesn't matter where you bought the plan, or what plan you are using,
or if you are even using a plan, you are ultimately responsible for the
safety of the structure you build, so you will need to ensure whatever
you are building complies with your local safety codes and construction
standards. There is nothing more important that the safety of your
loved ones. With that in mind, if you are inexperienced in
construction, and are tackling a large project such as a shed, garage,
gazebo, etc., you should verify all that you are doing with someone who
is more experienced.
My county inspector is
requiring that I do something different with the roof, I need to do
"xyz", can you modify the plan for "xyz" and send it to me?
No. All post-sales
modifications are your responsibility and you are responsible for
incurring all costs after the sale.
Do you offer any
post-sales support? What if I have questions on how to build a
certain aspect of a gazebo?
Please, lets be fair and realistic here.
We are selling a CD of plans for a nominal price. We can't be
there for every customer after the sale holding their hand through
email support through the construction process. By buying this
CD, you must acknowledge that you are comfortable in building the
designs shown, and are fully capable of making design and
construction decisions safely and responsible. We do not offer
any post sales support. Please be aware and respectful of this
fact up front.
Who's plans are these? Is anyone
else selling them?
They are our plans. We wrote them.
We own 'em. No one else can possibly be selling them legally as we
do not offer ANY resale rights whatsoever. If you see anyone
else selling our plans, please report it to us and we will file a
complaint with ebay (if it is on ebay), or through their ISP (if it
Are these Gazebo's easy enough for a
beginner to build? I have no experience, can I do this?
What do I need to know?
Well, mostly, you can build this with
basic woodworking knowledge. Depends on how comfortable you
are with power tools and building your own structure. The
plans are written to be as easily understood as possible so that
anyone can understand them. However, you should have some
basic wood working skills and framing skills and basic knowledge of
how to join wood and build framing. Odds are, if you have ever
built a deck, you can probably build a Gazebo. If you are
unsure of what you are doing, it is your responsibility to seek the
advice of a professional. Lets also be realistic. While
we've tried to make understanding the construction process easy,
building a Gazebo is a big job. Be aware that you need to know
how to make accurate cuts, take accurate measurements and revise
your dimensions accordingly, and know how to safely assemble a small
structure in the proper order to be safe.
How long does it take to
build one of these? How many people do I need to build one?
A lot of that depends on
your preparedness level and how organized you are. If you have
all the material purchased ahead of time, and have all the tools
ready, and don't need to run back and forth to the store, one of our
Gazebos can probably be built in 3 or 4 days with 2 people. 1
person can build most of it, but two people are generally required
for the roof installation. It would obviously go faster with
more than 2 people.
I want to build one of
your Gazebo's. It is your "xyz" design. Can you tell me
how much it would cost me to build this before I buy your disk?
Lumber prices vary from
region to region, even from town to town. Building materials
are very volatile in terms of price. We don't keep track of
prices daily, and prices can vary from day to day or week to week,
or month to month. In order for us to give you an accurate
cost, we would have to print out the material list and start calling
stores and looking up prices, and we are no more responsible for
doing that, than we are helping you build your project!
Costing it out is part of the project, and that is something you are
responsible for. We won't even give you an estimate, because
we know if we underestimate, that some people will try to hold us
accountable for it. We do feel very comfortable in saying that
building one yourself will cost you a fraction of what it would cost
you to buy one pre-built.
I like your Gazebo
plans, but I'm looking for a slightly different size/shape/look,
etc? Do you have one with x sides, that is y long? Can
you get one?
You can always ask, but
the likely answer is no. We are always evaluating market
demand, and if there is a demand for a new product, we will research
it and make a determination on whether or not it is worthy of being
pursued. But odds are, if we don't have it for sale, then we
don't have it right now. And, we do not do custom plans on a

We are sorry that our
description, as well as our strong ebay reputation, does not provide
you with a strong enough comfort level to purchase from us.
With that said, we do not provide "free samples".
What if my disk arrives
We offer a no muss, no
fuss guarantee that all damaged disks are replaced free of charge.
All discs are mailed out within 1-2 business days
Have you bought plans on CD's on ebay before only
to be disappointed? Did you buy a CD only to find a bunch of useless
links on it? Did you buy a disc and when it arrives it doesn't
work and you can't contact the seller?
Well, with us, your satisfaction is GUARANTEED!
Many sellers on ebay who we won't name are selling
discs full of links and other garbage instead of what you are looking
for. Why would you want to buy a disc full of links?? All of
our plans are in PDF format right on the disc. No links, no
garbage that sends you on the internet to some website.
All of our discs are tested before shipping to
ensure customer satisfaction. In VERY RARE cases does a disc get
damaged and rendered unreadable in shipment. If our disc shows up
and it won't read on your DVD or CD Drive, let us know, an we'll replace
it. If you are unsatisfied in any way, let us know, we want you to
In some cases,
customers bought DVD ROM discs and tried to play them on their CD ROM.
In those cases, it is not our responsibility for your hardware
compatibility issues. ALL of our DVD's are clearly marked as DVD's
in the auction listing.
Shipping and Payment information
Pay through PayPal using:
We are centrally
located in America's heartland in the great state of Tennessee!
All items will be shipped out within 1
business day to your PayPal address. We will only ship to your PayPal verified address.
Please view our shipping and sales tax rules on our shipping and
payments tab above.
All items are shipped by USPS first class mail. In an effort to keep our costs down, that are passed along as low prices to you, all of our disks are packaged and shipped in economic sleeves and mailers. All of our disks are labeled with a clean label
and some graphics.
The disks are made this way for speed and cost, which translates
into lower cost for you. We focus our efforts on the quality of the
material on the disk. We do not believe in charging you an
extra 3 or 4 dollars like some companies out there just to throw
in a 25 cent plastic case and slap a color label on an item.
We believe you purchase for content, and ours is the best,
although we still believe you will be pleased with the
ABOUT SHIPPING TIMES:
The estimated delivery dates shown above are ebay's estimates,
not ours. Sometimes ebay's dates are completely
unrealistic. Every effort is made to get your item out the
next day, but once it leaves us, we ask that you please
understand that we do not guarantee delivery by any date, since
the USPS does not give us a guarantee either. Below is our
estimates on what to expect:
USA CUSTOMERS: Most times, your package will arrive in
about 1 week after we ship them depending on where you are at.
However, lately the Post Office it seems has not been very
cooperative with us and we've had a couple of customers wait a few
days longer than that. If the item does not arrive, please
email us directly and let us know, and we will make it right.
NON-USA CUSTOMERS: Same deal above, except your
packages typically have been taking about 2 weeks or so after we ship
them. We've noticed that maybe 20% of overseas customers have been
waiting as long as 4+ weeks for these shipments. The only
explanation we can come up with is that it must be stuck in some
container in some dock waiting on customs clearance. It happens,
and for those 20% of customers, we apologize, but there is very
little we can do about that. Your disk will arrive or we will replace
Multiple items purchased by the same
customer may or may not be shipped in the same package, at our
discretion. We do not offer any additional discounts on
multiple items other than the ones noted above.
Please offer us a chance
to fix any problems before leaving us negative feedback for any
reason by emailing us first with your problem. The only thing
we ask from our customers is that if they have a problem, that they
give us a chance to fix the problem for them before they leave bad
feedback. If negative feedback is left without any prior
communication, we will assume you are no longer interested in
communicating and working things out.
If you run into
issues and wish to speak with us, we ask that you please refrain
from opening a request on ebay and email us directly by asking a
question first, and give us a chance to answer you before you open a
If you have any questions
prior to bidding, please use contact the seller above and let us
know. Thank you!!!!!!
