Dual Purpose More Than Just A Backyard Deck – Coolest DIY Project Ever!


The Mom and Pop Area of the Sandbox!

This is the best part, I think. It’s the portion of the sandbox that gives it its uniqueness and requires innovative thought and creativity – the thing we DIYers love the most! Introducing the never-before-seen “seats in a sandbox!”

Step 4: Assembling the seats

To assemble the 2 seats, you need 6 of the remaining 5 footers and the 2 armrests.

Step 5: Assembling the seat back

The seat back assembly is almost exactly like the seat assembly. Lay the two 2x4s about 18 inches apart. Then lay 3 of the 2x6s across them.


Step 6: Attaching the seat to the back

First, lay the seat back with the long 2 by fours underneath exactly as they were at the end of Step 4. Then lay the seat on top of the 2x4s snugly against the other 2x6s with the armrests up.

Finally, lay the T-hinge with the square end on the seat and the triangular end on the back and attach with the screws provided.


Step 7: Finishing up

You’ll want to make sure your sandbox is level and clear the ground underneath.

The very last step is to attach the handles.


If you venture to make this yourself, you will want to see the full tutorial of this glorious sandbox, including all the detailed instructions and more fun and exciting images.

This amazing structure (and images) was shared by Utah’s Adventure Family out of Lehi, UT. Being a family of 5 with 3 boys, this project sounds like a necessity to me! They all love to adventure all over Utah (thus the name), and provide lots of fun ideas of things to do and experience there. We certainly appreciate them sharing this gem with us, even it is only a trip to the backyard for some relaxation and fun! Thank you, Utah’s Adventure Family!

If you like both or either of these sandboxes, don’t forget to share them with your friends and be sure to let us know what you think. Have any of you ever made one?
