I Need YOUR help

We are still tossing around the idea of a getting a wooden swing set for the girls. But we need your help. We need to well do they work if you move them or try to sell them? Are there any brands you love? Hate? Anything you have to say about the topic please post so we can make an informed decision. Right now we have it narrowed down to a Woodplay set where they claim they always assemble and disassemble it for you and a locally built set that we'd probably have to do ourselves. Please comment and tell us any experience you have.

If Cliff has the time, he could actually design and build one cheaper and put it together with screws and bolts instead of nails. Ernie did this and we got a lot more playhouse/swing set for the same ammount of money. In buying the pre designed ones, you are paying for the time someone took to design it, count out hown much materieals you would need... I am sure Cliff could do this math. It really would be a lot cheaper and rewarding for him too. If he has the time. I think it took Ernie like three days or so to build the girls.

We bought a wooden one from Walmart online (deliver to the store so you don't have to pay shipping). However, to be safe to play on, we had to secure it down in the ground pretty far. It would not be very easy to move. With the swings, it's long and awkward as well. I think it's in there for good and if we ever sell the house, it will just stay with it.
