My kids love swinging on this play set. I used 12ft 4x4's for the legs so that I had some room to bury them in the ground a couple feet and still making it a bit taller. I am using a baby swing and a special needs swing on it with one of the standard swings it comes with so i used the chains from the trapeze bar to extend the swing chains to makeup for the height difference. I also had to block up the slide bottom to keep the angle down a little. I am still not sure what to do on the end by the slide my children are not into climbing nets and i am not sure how it would do hanging a swing with nothing on the far end. The kit overall went together well the instructions were easy to understand. The hardest part was getting the top beam installed to the legs with the taller legs im not sure if it would have been any easier with the 8ft legs and building it on the ground and pushing it over but with 12ft it wasnt happening that way we had to put the beam on the legs while standing up.

Kit includes all the hardware you will need to assemble the swing set. Just purchase the necessary lumber and deck screws and you are ready to begin. Instructions are clear and precise. Very happy with the finished product as are all the children in the neighborhood.

Perfect kit for us. Our kids love to swing, but had outgrown some of the "fort" sets. This one was affordable and functional. It came with 2 swings, a ring-bar combo, brackets and such. We probably added $200 in lumber--although we ended up with 3# of 2.5" screws (What were those for?). I cut the lumber in an hour. Full assembly took ~3hrs, but we have combined building experience. We already had a slide to add and we bought the net that goes on the end. Kids, 6 & 9 yrs love it. Simple and solid. **Not sure about the directions, but if you attach the A frame to the beam while it's on the ground, then lift it onto the platform assembly A-frames, it will save a lot of effort.** This thing is heavy. Know where you want it.

We had bought a cedar swing set - that we had to put together several years ago and then moved - leaving it behind.:( . We wanted something sturdier and not quite as big for the backyard we now have. This kit was perfect. Not to big - not to small. My daughter and I completed this project in a day. After I purchased the wood (including the 16 foot beam) we gathered all the tools from the plans list and preceded to follow the plans step by step. My grand kids love it and I would definitely recommend it.

If you are a carpenter its a half day job (I am). Directions a little confusing but not too bad. Can't beat the price. FYI. The sets you see with wood are redwood (straight grain, no knots, no splintering) I built with pt pine which is fine but you need to check for splintering when the wood dries for a few weeks and probably stain/seal your wood and sand as needed. Still a lot cheaper in the long run. Hardware will last longer than my kids need it.

It's a breeze to put this together. I only needed help a couple of times such as when I was lifting the beam into place. Follow the directions carefully and you won't have any issues. One thing that made it easier for me was measuring the spaces between bolt locations after the platform was built and before drilling the beam. Be sure to drill from the bottom of the beam. Great product great value. Put this exact swing set together for my kids 25 years ago and now for my grandkids.
