Daniels Wood Land, Inc. Pirate Ships

    We build The Only Pirate Ships in the World That Come With Their Own Tree! They’re the most whimsical Pirate Ships on the planet. Our designs invoke playful emotions in both young and old.

    They feature enormous recycled logs, whimsical playhouses, and authentic relics that range from wagon wheels to huge brass ship’s portholes. Each Pirate Ships is a fully functional play house, that doubles as a conversation centerpiece of your landscape and triples as a creator of memories that last a lifetime!

    The ladder in the center of the huge, hollowed out log provides access to the trap door in the floor of the crooked clubhouse. We offer several designs and a list of options that give you a multitude of possibilities (or we can work with you to design and build a custom creation). Options include exterior stairs, balconies, spiral slides, bridges, cargo net railing, talk tubes, swings, monkey bars, bear carvings and more. We’re ready to work for you now! Give us a call and we’ll take it from there.

This is our base Play fort. With a 6' tall tree stump, and a sturdy Play fort, this is the ultimate is quality and fun. It includes the log, entry porch, door, and the rustic barn style Play fort.
Country Playhouse Down to Earth
It's a cleverly simple playhouse you can install in about 30 minutes on flat ground. You'll love the slightly crooked windows, and gently swayed roof. It breaks down and stacks on a pallet, and is incredibly simple to install. It comes unfinished so you and your family can save costs and enjoy finishing it together. It's built from redwood and cedarÆ’ the best wood mother nature provides. It's perfect for the youngest toddler, slimmest budget, and most difficult to access play area.
Country Playhouse High Water
The high water version starts with the Country Playhouse and we elevate it on a 3' tall platform, and add a small staircase. It comes unfinished so you and your family can save costs and enjoy finishing it together. Installs in about 2 hours with no heavy equipment and minimal site prep, it's a fantastic way to save big money on site prep, installation and shipping costs over our much more ambitious Play forts. You can add a curved scoop slide.
Country Playhouse Tree Top
The Tree Top Version is by far the best value for the money spent. We take the same Country Playhouse, and set it on top of one of our oversize Play fort logs. From there we add a roof dormer, balcony, staircase, monkey bars, log window, spiral slide and more. Because this model breaks down and consolidates better on a truck, shipping is half the cost of our other similar sized Play forts. You can also install it on a packed gravel pad instead of a concrete one! The log weighs several thousand pounds, so you'll still have the need for a rented forklift or crane. It comes unfinished so you and your family can save costs and enjoy finishing it together. All in all this is a great Play fort and customers will save an average of about $8000 over our other similar Play forts. The savings are spread over price, shipping, site prep, and installation. That's right, we were thinkin' mighty thrifty thoughts when we came up with this model. It's faster and cheaper to build, ship and install, so we're passing the savings on to you!
Pirate Oasis
What is the natural environment for a pirate ship? Water, of course! Our Pirate Oasis Play fort is the perfect addition to this amazing poolside grotto. We started out with our Scallywag Sloop Play fort and added a few extra custom features to make this extraordinary pirate ship playhouse. The Play fort measures 6‘ x 6‘, sits atop an oversized log, features custom siding, a pirate ship bow complete with a rope swing overhanging the pool, and a bridge with cargo net railing that leads to the 6‘ x 7‘ stern. The upper portion of the stern is equipped with a turbo spiral slide leading into the pool, an exterior staircase, and was built so that a diving board could be added at a later date. The lower portion of the stern is the captain's quarters which serves as a changing room and even has a fold-up bunk. Custom glass windows, custom railing, and a door with a porthole window are just some of the extra details we‘ve added to this playful pirate playset.
Gunsmoke Galleon
This 17th Century Galleon is surely one of the best pirate ship playhouses we have built! The swabbies here at DWL were able to pack a lot of punch into a small space with this ole' green galleon! This pirate treehouse sports a boy's lower level Play fort (complete with jail bars), a second story girl's pirate playhouse in the Captain's Quarters and a third story lookout deck that faces the Golden Gate Bridge! Master chainsaw carver Johnny created this amazing peg legged captain out of redwood, who's hanging out on the deck spying through his looking glass. Other features on this towering pirate Play fort included a treasure room, 2 climbing nets, and "rock" climbing course on the broken pirate ship bow. The cannon and anchor are real cast iron replicas that weigh thousands of pounds!
Bayou Buccaneers
Here's an exceptional pirate adventure playhouse your kids will love! An 8' x 8' bayou themed swamp shack sits atop a giant old character log and is accented with fish netting, old wine barrels, distressed paint, lobster traps, and tons of other unique details. We also added some hand carved crate steps leading up to the slanted wrap around balcony, and threw in a turbo spiral slide and climbing net for added fun. An 8' swing bridge connects the crooked shack to an enormous pirate ship which actually once started out as a 21' Bayliner ski boat hull! We worked our magic, added some pirate theming, a 7' x 8' captain's quarters playhouse, and a swing beam made from a "broken mast" to create this awe inspiring galleon style pirate ship.
Fiesta de Pirates
We returned to The Big Fresno Fair in 2006 to build an immense pirate-themed play structure. A 52‘ retired sloop was broken into three sections and strategically scattered around the area. Stairs, swing bridges, and elevated walkways connect all the sections together, allowing for controlled traffic flows. Two giant masts jet upwards and a fully-stocked treasure room awaits explorers inside the Captain‘s Quarters. Solid redwood carvings, including the ship‘s Captain, are positioned on various decks of the ship.
Thar Be Pirates
Loaded with tons of intricate details, "Thar Be Pirates!" is one of the most elaborate pirate ship Play forts we have ever built! This breathtaking structure measures 36' x 39' and was comprised of two custom playhouses, two oversized logs, a bow, a stern, and a captain‘s lookout tower. The charming 6' x 6' Victorian style playhouse features stained glass windows, portholes, a crow‘s nest, electricity, redwood inlaid floor, insulation, and tons of unique Victorian style details. The larger Play fort connected to the stern measures 10' x 10' and features thatch roofing, electricity, porthole, redwood inlaid floor, and insulation as well. The stern section was absolutely amazing and was adorned with hand carved scrolls, stained glass windows, a ship's wheel, a real ship's bell, lanterns, and several other pirate themed decorations. Supporting the stern was a giant 12' diameter old growth redwood log which doubled as a treasure room filled with all sorts of booty, Spanish armor, and a secret hidden safe. To complete the scene we added over 12 redwood carvings including a pirate captain, a brut pirate, a mermaid, several animals, a few pelicans, and even a seagull which was rigged on a line to fly back and forth over this amazing pirate Play fort.
Neptune's Trident
The Neptune's Trident is one of the grandest pirate ship Play forts we've ever had the pleasure of building. It's the most comprehensive residential project we've ever undertaken! This massive pirate play set is broken into two sections: the bow and the stern. The bow is adorned with a 5' foam carved mermaid and features several cannon doors, thatch roofing, and sits atop an enormous 14' diameter old growth redwood log! The log was so huge that it required a wide load permit to make its way across the country to its final home in Florida. On either side of the log entry you'll find a hand carved tiki totem carving waiting to greet you. The bow is connected to the stern via an elaborate series of elevated walkways. Standing over 30' tall and featuring three different levels, the stern is a magnificent play space in and of itself. On the first level you'll find the sleeping quarters complete with built in bunk beds and cannon ports. The captain's quarters is located on the second floor and is truly stunning! Featuring built-in bench seating, wrap around hand made stained glass windows, and a fiber optic map of the solar system on the ceiling complete with constellations, this second level is absolutely breathtaking! In addition, both the first and second levels are climate controlled and include electrical throughout. The third and final level is the flight bridge where you'll find the captain's wheel, 6' tall walls, and aft lighting. The entire stern is adorned with elaborate trim and scrolls. We topped it off with some skulls, bones, a giant lion head crest, and two enormous foam carvings of Neptune and Poseidon! And of course no pirate ship would be complete without a captain and crew. There are actually 14 pirate carvings along with a pig, mule, goat, buzzard, parrot, and several pelicans and seagulls (all of which are carved from foam). We even threw in a 10' spiral slide, custom decking, and a few water cannons for added fun.
Owen's Bait Shop
This one-of-a-kind Owen‘s Bait Shack is one of our favorites! This 5‘ x 6‘ bayou themed playhouse features hand carved crate stack steps, an incredible knotty oak log with custom entry, a uniquely wavy roof, and aged oak wine barrel stave railing. Fish netting, lobster traps and antique lanterns complete the scene. Back in 2005 the folks at Make-A-Wish foundation contacted us about a little boy who wished for a Play fort. We were honored to be able to deliver the Play fort of his dreams the very next week!
Danger, Pirates!
"Danger, Pirates!" was an amazing pirate ship playhouse built for a lucky bunch of kids in Southern California. The theme is "Victorian meets the Jungle via Shipwreck". One side of this extreme playhouse boasts an 8' diameter log with a spiral staircase inside that leads into the 8'x8' pirate playhouse. One doorway leads to a pirate ship bow, another to a balcony with a slide and to another staircase. The third door leads you to a bouncy swing bridge that connects to a beautiful 2-story 8' x 8' Victorian playhouse. The whole shipwreck playground including the Victorian house has outdoor accent lighting, electrical outlets, hardwood floors, and glass windows. The final touches include several carvings and a 4" thick, poured in placed, fall surface! Any guess who the most popular kids on the block are now?
Wequassett Play Ground
This incredible pirate themed playground environment was built for a resort in Cape Cod. It features a large pirate ship which is "shipwrecked" on some rocks. A staircase leads to the top deck which has a turbo spiral slide and a swing bridge connected to a changing room. Below, the ship features a full interior with portholes and a sitting area in the bow. The changing room has two interior changing areas, a large umbrella covered platform, a climbing wall, and a turbo spiral slide. A smaller pirate ship, broken in half, includes a ramp, curved scoop slide, and a functioning captain's wheel. We constructed a massive treasure chest which is a plastic ball fun room. Finally, we themed some water cannons and a water crate feature which is part of the resorts soaking area. The whole project took about 2 months to construct and was installed in just over a week.
KOA Cape Hatteras
We installed this customized Deluxe Scallywag Sloop at the KOA Cape Hatteras in Rodanthe, NC. It features a real oversized log, ship's bow, oversized Play fort, balcony, deck, and a staircase with landing. Lots of pirate theming and a spiral slide add to the fun. This commercial play structure conforms to ASTM and CPSC standards. If you make it to the Outer Banks, stop in and check it out.
