Have you ever put your handyman skills to good use? Perhaps you've embarked on some sort of home improvement project that brought joy to the rest of your family.

This handy dad actually decided to turn his entire living room into a fantastic playroom for his young son. If only we all had such mad home improvement skills.

When Carl Raine recently moved into his new house he knew there would be some renovations that would be needed.

Instead of the typical living room set-up that most people decide upon, he thought of something entirely different.

Even though the room wasn't all that big to begin with Carl decided to keep as much free floor space as possible so his son Oakley can roam around.

Kids need lots of space to do that!

To accomplish that, he came up with the idea of making the playroom have two levels.

He made sure there were plenty of things Oakley can explore such as a fun slide, a playful ball pit, and lots of steps and things he can climb on.

Carl also added some mechanical things into the room design such as an abacus, a basketball hoop, and a velcro board.
