Sailboat playhouse in sunny Baja California Sur, Mexico!

We live in Los Cabos, Mexico, and the sun is hot and bright! My kids love playing outside in our backyard, but we had no shade. I started looking around, found this site, and though I have few tools and only helping experience with carpentry, decided to give it a go. It's a big hit with the kids and they assure me that it's a nice shady place in the yard! No sand added as we have plenty of dirt and cactus as it is. Tools used: a hand saw (!) and a drill. I really enjoyed it, so I need to go buy a circular saw soon.
