After researching for many months, we ordered this adorable playhouse on Black Friday for our daughters. When it arrived 2 weeks later on a freight truck and the pallet was placed in our garage with four flat boxes, my husband and I thought we were in for a tough build. We finally had enough time to put together the playhouse yesterday with my father-in-law and I have to say it went easier than we thought it would. The parts were not labeled at all, which was a little discouraging. It took us about 45 minutes to get everything organized before we began assembling. It took the three of us approximately 3 hours to put it together, with a few breaks here and there. The quality of the wood and the playhouse are outstanding. The house is small for the adults to go in and out of (which you will need to do while building the house) but it was doable. We are planning on putting a layer of wood preserve on the house to protect it from the outside elements. It is not a large playhouse, but plenty big for our 7 and 4 year old to play in it together. If you are looking for a top quality playhouse, this should be at the top of your list. I can't wait to see the look on our girls faces on Christmas morning!
We purchased this playset as a Christmas gift for our 7 and 3 year old boys. They love the set. It took 2 people to assemble and took probably 10 hours total over 2 days. All pieces were included and directions were fine. The set is very sturdy and we enjoy playing with the boys on the set.
This is a great looking playset when all put together! Install took me about 24-26 hours total mainly by myself except for the monkey bars and swing side. Pros: -I'd give the build quality and lumber quality a 8.5/10. Few pieces were cracked, and the set does creek around a bit. I'm anticipating the creeks to stop once it settles for a few weeks. -My two boys love it! Cons: -The lookout area is quite small and difficult to fit through when assembling (I'm 6'0" and 195 lbs) -A few points in the instructions weren't too clear and wound up requiring a little re-work because they don't tell you consistently if pieces need to be flush or not. Install advice: Lay out all the wood in order by letter outside of the boxes or you'll spend half your time just searching for pieces. Otherwise, the instructions are easy to follow and it goes together like a big adult lego kit :)
