Terrific arbor/swing

Pros:
  • quality product
  • sturdy
Cons:

I had been looking to build an arbor/swing for the corner of my backyard and normally am able to find some plans for free online for whatever I'm looking to construct. Wasn't the case this time for what I truly wanted and I must say, the $15 spent on these plans were well worth it and something I'll consider doing again. The plans weren't perfect. There was some confusion, and I believe a mistake or two, in the parts list, which all together wasn't as clear as I would've liked (I prefer one page that just tells you everything you need and then another page can break it down for me what each of those parts is for). But I was able to eventually figure it out and I'm always pretty accustomed to having to make a couple extra trips to the store during each project I do. In the end, I'm very happy with how my build came out and so is my wife and daughter.
