Prompt delivery and well packaged. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the wood and parts...and they are all cut/made perfectly to size.
Easy to build but does take hours...don't try to rush it! You'll need a 5mm wood drill bit and some spanners. Unless you use screw driver for a living you'll also need a fully charged electric screw driver/appropriate drill.
Instructions are very easy to follow and every peace of wood has its part numbers stamped on it.
Comments on instructions:
1. What's with the different sized gaps in step 12? Looks better with even size gaps.
2. In Ssep 22, D1060 looks structural...it's actually the rope ladder.
3. Step 27 measure as instructed on one side but use a spirit level on the bars to mark the drill holes on the other side.
4 Step 28 (no swings) as you look at diagram place the first D1906 as instructed. I placed the rear (or right hand side) D1906 on the other side (outside).
5 Step 30 to 32. I swapped D1384 with D1494 to reduce the gap on the slide side platform.
6 Step 37 image 3...looks like you need to be cross eyed to 'see' it. I think it means the material should be folded under the wood and screwed in in the same direction as the screws in image 1.
A c.60cm by c.120cm piece of mesh for the gap in the frame would have been great.
Unexpected bonus: you can attach a hose to make it a water slide!
Once built it looks better than in the photos.
I'm now sitting in the garden waiting for family to come home ;-)
