It's not uncommon for people to want to renovate rooms in their home. But most people wouldn't even think about doing what this family did.

The sad state of their old wall built 10 years ago

The angles were too similar and not much of a challenge anymore, plus storage was getting to be a problem


2 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Shoes were scattered on the floor and the shelf was too high to access


3 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

So a renovation was in order, and the first step was to strip the wall

Step two was to remove the old plywood, and of course, save it for the upgrade

Demolition mess - it doesn't even look like a climbing area at this point



6 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Even their son was getting in on the action by pulling nails from the 2x6's


7 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

The design and plan


8 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

They laid out all of the framing just like they do for rafters


9 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Next step: building the framing members

Starting to take shape, but this first attempt at framing was too tight at the top

Their son nailing the 2x6's


12 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Success! They reused the original framing and also used wood leftover from a friend's ice rink project


13 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

The framing, completed - including 10, 20, 30, and 40-degree walls. Plus, a vertical wall in the back

Onto the plywood. They were able to reuse all of the old plywood and only had to buy another 10 sheets


15 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Almost done with the plywood


16 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Looking good


17 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Now to paint the walls


18 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

And reinstall the padding, which was a mixture of seat material from old cars


19 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

New carpets and holds just waiting to be washed


20 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Putting the power-washer to good use


21 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Now to let them dry out


22 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

The new wall in all its glory


23 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)


24 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Don't you wish this was in your home?


25 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

The hangboard area


26 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

And new cubbies for shoe storage


27 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

More storage options too


28 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Such an improvement, don't you think?


29 Family Builds The Coolest Wall Ever While Renovating A Room In Their Home (30 pics)

Testing out the new wall!

very cool to teach the children the skills of climbing at the early ages. Not only will they be knowledgeable, but stronger than average as well. Good for them!
