Indoor Climbing and Sliding Spaces for Kids

Indoor Climbing and Sliding Spaces for Kids

Perhaps it’s post-Thanksgiving family fatique, but we’re thinking about indoor spaces where children can burn off excess energy.

Kids need to play, but they also need to do their homework. For ideas on workspaces for kids, see Remodelista’s post, Children’s Rooms: Workspace Roundup.

How do the kids with the fireman's pole get back up? ;-)

Awesome stuff. I don't have the space or money to do any of that right now, but very cool ideas. If I had a kid and the space and money I would want to build them something like this. I love loft levels in houses, I think they are awesome.

Very cool.. If I had the money I would want to reproduce these ideas...for myself.
