I want to build a suspension bridge for my grand kids play

This answer was rated:

I want to build a suspension bridge for my grand kids play fort. It will only be about 12 feet long with a 1 foot rise from one end to the other. does anyone know where I can find plans or just a good picture of one similar to this? I am thinking of lumber and cable.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Just to get an idea of what you are looking for, is this the type of bridge you are looking to build?

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Under the main picture, there are several different angles.

That looks like what I had in mind. Do you know how the floor of the bridge is constructed/supported?

I would follow the same convensions as a concrete footing for a deck. It's inexpensive, fairly simple, and very safe.
