    whew!
    I made this slide a little over 4 years ago. I have recovered it each year but the decking finally rotted enough to warrent a complete redo:

    Got the magnum fascia rockin' with solar-powered LED foglights illuminating the slide and the stairs. I put 4 coats of sealer on both sides of the masonite this time. Bring on the weather!

    ^His kids to play in, duh.




    Nice work :thumbsup:

    To keep the wood contacting the ground from rotting you have to look at drainage options. If you'd dig down about a foot and fill 8" with gravel and the top with sand you'd have a pretty dry area around the playhouse and wouldn't have to worry about rot for quite a while. Or maybe holding the bottom of the slide off the ground just a bit so it doesn't hold moisture below.
