When i opened the boxes, i first noticed the pungent smell of cedar. But when i started inspecting to make sure all the pieces were present, i noticed that not all the wood is cedar. Most of the wood is what looks to be pine with a cedar stain.

So for a couple hours every night of a week i coated all the pieces with thompsons water seal to prevent moisture damage and protect against uv rays.

And since mine is sitting in grass, i coated the lower pieces with a rubberized automotive undercoating, which is much like truck bed liner. Just to prevent from excessive moisture and termites.

We found that there were a few missing/broken pieces, so we went to toys-r-us and they gave us the pieces...no questions asked.

Now for the assembly.....
I am a plumber, so it wasn't difficult (atleast not to me). It was however, time consuming and in the middle stages monotonous. As long as you follow the directions for the most part and read all the print as you assemble it, it will make things easier.

Most importantly..... sort and label everything before assembly!!!!!!

The final product......
Very sturdy and looks nice. I weigh 192lbs and was crawling around the clubhouse with my 3yr old daughter no problem.

Ultimately, if you are the slightest bit handy, can follow directions, and have some patients... then you should have no problem putting this together.

First of all, nothing is labeled. It takes a considerable amount of time to find each part as you put it together. I would suggest first measuring and labeling all the pieces before you start. Second annoying aspect is all the different hardware you have to use and the fact that so many of the pieces looked the same. You need 3 to 4 people to help put it together and a decent set of power tools if you plan on getting done in the time suggested. (took us 3 days) Finally, one of the most irritating moments was when we were probably 90% done and started combining the main structures only to realize the monkey bars were not fitting together the way they were supposed to and the pre drilled bolt holes were not aligned. The glider was missing a hole that was supposed to be drilled into the plastic so we had to figure it out ourselves. Such a let down. The quality of the wood and my childrens smiles made it worth the while in the end. Honestly my first concern was spending the money, but I would have spent more if it would have been labeled and had better instructions.

      Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Lancaster Wood Gym Set:

      We bought this swing set 1 year ago for my 2 year old daughter. It was very difficult to assemble. The wood is cracking and the screws are falling out. I hold my breath every time she gets on it in fear that the 2 decaying wood beams holding it up don't split. Needless to say she loves the swing set, but we will be getting rid of it soon.

      I suggest that the swing set wood is pressure treated so it is more sturdy.

        Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Lancaster Wood Gym Set:

        We bought this for our 5yr. old daughter in June 2011. By Oct. I had to restain it & reinforce it. The sun had caused the wood to dry out & turn gray, & it wobbled terribly when my daughter used the monkey bars, or swings very high. It was a neat idea, but I think we would have been better off spending our money on supplies, & building our own with quality wood. The wood from this swingset is so cheap it split & dried out within only a few months of owning it. I cannot imagine the condition it will be in by the end of it's first winter outdoors. It certainly wouldn't hold up well in poor weather climates, too hot or too cold/ wet. I would recommend checking into a home improvement store for wood & plans to make your own swingset that will last if made of good wood. This one is definately made of the cheapest would one could find. I would certainly not buy it if I had it to do over agian.

        Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Lancaster Wood Gym Set:

        We purchased this swing/gym set for our 5yr. old, in June 2011. By Oct. 2011, we already had to sand off many places where the wood was splitting off, & it had turned gray from drying out. We had to restain/ waterproof it at the same time. The wood is so soft, not sure how it will hold up over it's first winter. I'm a little afraid it won't make it. It also could use more bracing to keep it from rocking when children are using the monkey bars, or swinging very high. Once we get all these things worked out, it may be a nice set. Also, was not as easy to put together as you would think, since wood was so soft, it kept stripping & the screws would fall out. Two or three screws have already broken & fallen out, just while the children were playing on it. Needs to be improved for overall safety & longevity. Definately not worth the high price we paid, if this is all the longer it's going to last! Please make children's play sets safer & better quality?!!

          We love this swingset. We bought it for my 18 month old daughter so that she could use it now with the swings and grow into the rest. It is made of good materials, and looks fantastic. Our only compliant is that it was very difficult to put together. Probably not any more difficult than the other swing sets of this quality, but difficult. My husband, an engineer, and 4 of his friends, also engineers, spent an entire day working on this, and still didn't finish. [...]

            Thankfully I read the reviews before starting this project. Labeling the wood parts is key as well as separating the hardware by type and size.
            It took two full days to actually put it together and the set is a bit sturdier than I expected.
