Very sturdy! Should last for years!!

I researched wooden swing sets for months and read lots of reviews about poor quality lumber, plus disasters about putting them together. I took a slight chance with this swing set because it only had 1 review, but I knew the southern yellow pine lumber was supposed to be even stronger than cedar and just as preservable...This swing set has exceeded our expectations. The lumber was great quality, only 1 board was somewhat warped but it went on the roof. It took my husband and I only 3 days to put together, and we only worked about 4-6 hours each day. Directions and illustrations in the manual were understandable, however our set came with LOTS of extra hardware and 2 boards that did not match up with the dimensions they were supposed to be. But, this didn't matter because these 2 boards were never needed anyways since we got it all put together and they were simply leftovers. I laid out and accounted for all the lumber before we started putting it together, and I labeled them according to the numbers on the manual. After putting it all together and having several kids play on it throughout the last few weeks, it is very solid and sturdy. My nieces and nephews (ages 1-8) all love it and it seems very sturdy when they all play on it. My son is 1 year old, and we are anticipating that it will last throughout his childhood and beyond since we are planning to have more children. AND, we somehow ordered this product at just the right time because we only paid $1300 for it since it was on sale and Wayfair also gave me 10 off since it was my first time ever ordering from Wayfair.com......The only downfall about our orderingshipping process was a very rude truck driver who was disrespectful about delivering a product to a rural location as we live on a farmranch.

My kids love it and my neighbors don't mind it at all since it's attractive (on the side of our front yard). Since it was intense to put together, we hired someone to do it.
