Putting Together a Swingset

How many people does it take to put together a swingset?

That sounds like the beginning of a joke, except it isn’t very funny. It’s more than it would take to screw in a lightbulb, I assure you. The short answer is that it takes a team. Along with a lot of grumping and a couple scraped knuckles, over the course of 3 days in shifts. More than 7 hours in total. But thanks to my brother and parents, we went from a bunch of confusing pieces…

To a complete swingset that, in the words of my 8 year old son, is “really awesome!”. The little boy from next door even came over to help us test it out.

    @marie, You had about the same experience as we did, except you were smart and did it all in 1 day.

    Ice. That’s a lot of work. But think of all the hours it will free up in the future. Freedom!
