Montpelier Swing Set
All Cedar Construction
The Montpelier is made from 100% cedar. With small, tight knot structure, your lumber will be less likely to develop small cracks emanating from knots. In laboratory testing, our durable cedar wood proved to be rot resistant and highly resistant to natural decay. All lumber is pre-stained for a smooth and clear appearance, as well as cut and stamped with the part number to help speed up the building process. Some pilot-hole drilling may be required. Our patented Safe-T-Fuse hardware makes assembly easy and secure. Its laminated swing beam is built strong, with steel clam-shell brackets to ensure that swinging is always safe. Assembly requires two moderately skilled people 18-24 hours.

Top Customer Reviews
The only thing that is frustrating about this, is the worry that when you assemble it like this you have more room for error and with my children playing on it I'm nervous. But so far they have had a lot of fun and no issues!!
That said, putting it together was an ordeal. First, I've read reviews on Amazon saying they were disappointed with the 'flimsiness' of the wood. If you want railroad ties and commercial grade, bottom line is you need to pay more money for a different set. We wanted to stay under $1000 and yesterday we had a 10 year old boy, an 8 year old girl, a 4 year old girl, and two toddlers on it and it was holding up just fine! We made sure to stake the set in, as the instructions said.
Several reviews I've read say putting this up is no joke, and that is a fact. I took everything out of the box and separated them. The ID numbers could be stamped better. In some cases, I had to measure the dimensions of the piece and match up with the inventory list. If I had to do it over again, I'd take the time to download the manual first, write all the part numbers on notecards, put the cards on the wall, and organize like that. For a two man operation (my dad helped me for two days before he left, the rest of the time I was on my own) this would have been worth it. This was a huge time suck to go searching for the boards and hardware, even though I separated them before hand. Also, I recommend a capable helper the entire time. Even if you do the rest by yourself, you will need someone to help you put the swingbeam/monkey bars/roof on. You can pay for installation, but we elected not to.
Also, recommend downloading the instructions to an Ipad/tablet. The paper version is not in color, and the print is too dark. By enlarging it on a tablet, you can see the illustrations more clearly and (probably). On more than one page, the darkness of the pictures obscure the 3-D drawings showing you exactly how and where certain bolts/screws go. Enlarge it with a tablet and you'll be fine.
One disappointment is that a few times we could not figure out which side of a piece is right side up. For example, we could not figure out which part of the swing beam was the bottom and which was the top (the answer lies in which way the wave rider brace attaches to the swing beam on a different page) or which way to turn the four long support posts of the playhouse to use all the pre-drilled holes. You can figure this all out, but the answers may be on different pages on different phases of construction.
Another thing that is not up front is the company's 5-year warranty on the wood requires you to put some water sealant or other protectant on the wood. The stain is for color only. I put Thompson's clear water sealant on it. The annoying thing is that it takes at least a day to dry, so that took a big chunk of time, especially for a 4.5 year old who received this as a Christmas present and woke me up every morning after asking me when her "park" was going to be ready. I wish it was pre-treated for water protectant.
I also had a missing part. While annoying, it could not have been easier to order the part. It was very no hassle, no questions asked and they FEDEX'd it to me at no cost to me. I used the time in between to build the rest of the park. There is another review that gives this product 1 star because it was missing a part, which I think is a little unfair given what you get when you finish. So kudo's to the manufacturer for being easy to deal with when correcting a mistake.
Bottom line is that it was very time consuming to put up but now that it is finished, I'm ecstatic. Also, it is a sharp looking piece for the backyard. My 4 year old loves it and I believe it to be safe for play for the suggested age group.
