We got this is on sale which was a major plus, but we wanted something that wouldn't rot or have to be stained yearly. This took my husband a couple hours every evening for a week to put together so assembly is big task. Kids love it and play all the time. Love the canopies on top because I haven't noticed bees like most cedar swing sets. The only complaint was we got to the end and realized they shorted us some bolts but we were eager to finish and just picked up a box at lowes. Otherwise great set for your money.
Super quality, easy assembly, and made to last with little or no maintenance. I was originally going to buy a wood set but decided on this one because it is more sturdy and doesn't require maintenance.
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 :)
This swing set is just as described and fairly easy to assemble. Everything needed is included and marked fairly well. Just lay things out before you start and get yourself familiar with each part. Some pre- drilled holes needed a bit more drilling but that happens in any pre-drilled project. Would recommend this to parents or grandparents looking to fin d a pretty sturdy swing set. It doesn't LOOK like it will be sturdy, but as you assemble and put things together, it is amazing at how sturdy it becomes.
