Dave was on leave all of that week and had big plans of enjoying the week and getting a couple of rounds of golf in. The diections in the playset said that it took 2 moderately skilled people 20-24 hours to build the playset. We started working on it on Monday morning and worked all day long till about 6:45 that night. We hit it again on Tuesday and again on Wednesday. After 3 very FULL days of working on it, it was still not complete. Dave thought he would get it finished in a couple of hours on Thursday morning but ended up running into a couple of snags which slowed him down. Apparently we are not "moderately skilled people".
To make a very long story short, we worked all week long on building the playset. Dave did not get to even play one game of golf. And when we got down to the very last step, we did not have the screws that were needed as the "moderately skilled" people who packed the hardware in the boxes had shorted us on 2 inch lag screws.
So, the kids have a beautiful, nicely built, nearly finished playset to entertain themselves in the backyard.
