We have had a disappointing experience with
and wanted to share our experience to save others the trouble and hassle of dealing with them. We purchased their top-of-the-line cedar playset (which they no longer offer) a little over 4 years ago and paid for it to be professionally installed, as we felt more comfortable about its safety with professional installation. Initially, we were pleased with the product and service.
Now, just over 4 years later, every piece that touches the ground has developed soft, mushy spots and the wood is simply wearing
away. We contacted the company and while they are willing to provide replacement pieces, they are unwilling to cover the cost of shipping or installation, despite the extensive damage which has rendered the playset unsafe and worthless to us.
Since their supposed highest quality product is worthless after only 4 years and they are unwilling to step up and remedy the situation, we strongly recommend you do not do business with them.

Considering the price I was very very happy with this shed. We have a small yard and I wanted something that looked nice since we will always have to look at it. I was looking at another wooden shed at Home Depot for about $2,000 and the reviews said that the kit came with some wood rot. I was concerned about that and we ended up going to
instead. For only $1,000 more we got the exact size we needed and we were able to customize it a bit and pick out doors, shutters, color etc. They were very good at telling us what would be an extra cost and how much. Of the $3,000 spent I think $500 was them putting it together so compared to the shed at Home Depot I think we only paid about $500 more for exactly what we wanted vs. something in stock that was so so. We liked them so much we recommended them to my in-laws and I think they are going to have a barn built by
. Really nice people and love the fact that they are closed on Saturday but open on Sunday. Also between order and delivery we only had to wait a few weeks which was not bad.

We purchased a fully stocked Backyard Odyssey playset for our two little girls. This included a 12' high tower with roof, plus a clubhouse at the base, and built-in stools. We also wanted to make a few minor modifications--for example, where the ladder was mounted.
I tried a couple of the assembly providers on Angie's List but did not get replies or, if I did get a reply, I learned that the company did not assemble the kind of playset I have. So I did an internet

(the company owner) responded more quickly than any of the other providers and, since he is local to me, I decided to give it a shot.

was very flexible in terms of scheduling the work. When we had a delivery delay, he had no trouble changing our appointment at the last minute.
The two assembly guys (

and
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
) arrived on time and got to work right away. It quickly became clear that these two guys have seen a ton of projects like this. They knew not only how to put the thing together according to the instructions, but also how to work around the inevitable imperfections that you face when receiving delivery of timber and hardware. What's the best way to handle a missing or faulty bolt? What's the best way to work around a piece of timber that has been split?

always had a quick solution.
They were also extremely professional and personable, and they worked hard as can be for more than a day. While the playset was being built, our daughters begged to be able to use the swings (which were among the first things to go up), and

very patiently worked around a couple of swinging girls for part of the afternoon.

Worked hard for 12 hours each day over a weekend. I didn't see him take a break or eat lunch. A couple of screws were loose and he fixed it immediately. Provided 6 month warranty on work but said if we needed anything he would come on by. He was friendly and professional. Kids love the play set and I love that we didn't have to do the job. It looked very complicated with many pieces. He did a wonderful job!

I left a message, the next day I called again and did get someone. There was a question as to whether they would be willing to come out to St.
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
. The person answering the phone had the owner call me back. The owner was courteous, professional and informative. While there was an additional travel fee of $75.00, I decided to go with them. An appointment was arranged for the following week.
The two gentlemen who work for the company were very prompt and were very thoughtful about placing the playset just so and were also clear in their communication as to why the spot chosen was the best location.
It probably only took them 2-2.5 hours to complete a job that would have been impossible for me to handle. Well worth it!

Fantastic! Absolutely worth every single penny. I have already referred this service to 2 friends. We bought a large playset from Costco and everything I read said it would take 2 men, 2 full days to assemble. He had it done in 2 afternoons by himself. It is even dug into the ground and leveled. Super super safe! GREAT JOB, so glad I called!!

I have nothing but good things to say about
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
and I will recommend him to everyone! He was knowledgable, prompt, courteous, and is overall just a really nice person. He brought one other man with him and they had this HUGE playset up within a few hours! There is no way we could have done that on our own. Extremely reasonably priced - money well spent for sure! He went over maintenance and care of the set, including how to keep wasps out and the best kid-friendly products to use when cleaning, oiling, etc. He even had a print-out for future reference. He will come back and do any repairs needed for the actual unit should we need something done. I would call him again in a heartbeat and do not hesitate at all when I tell you to call Mr.

It went great! He was on time, professional, and exceeded expectations on this job. After disassembling, he took the time to hose it down and remove a bee nest. He also replaced some rotted boards once we got it to my house. He took his time putting it together in my yard, making sure it was safe and sturdy for my kids. I highly recommend him!

showed up on time as promised with the shed as ordered installed and leveled it quickly, pushing it up a small hill through the double gate leading to my back yard. The shed was placed on large pieces of pvc and rolled to prevent damage to the lawn. Very sturdy and attractive shed. Later when the T lock on the door needed to be adjusted they were there to adjust the lock in a few days no problem.

I purchased a big swingset from a wholesale store, and it arrived a few weeks later in a single 1000-lb freight crate and about a million pieces. I'm not bad with this stuff - usually- but all the reviews I read online for this behemoth said that it was taking even experienced DIY'ers and several of their friends at least a full weekend to assemble. I'm just one mom with no adult assistants and a houseful of impatient kids, so I found the
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
online.
They have a ton of awesome reviews online (and I'm sure this is just the first of many to come on Angie's List), so I went to their website and requested a quote. The response email was almost immediate, polite and professional, and the estimate was fantastic. I didn't respond immediately because I wasn't sure what day would work, but
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
called me the next day to ask if I had any questions, and at that time I picked a date. Then I changed my mind and asked him to come earlier if they had any openings.
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
and I talked several times over the next week or so as he did his best to expedite the project, in spite of the fact that it's a full day project AND it's thunderstorm season here AND it's a metal swingset (read: lightening rod).
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
and

showed up a day earlier than my original request, called the day before to confirm and on their way in the morning to be polite, and worked hard all day. Like all DIY kits, there were clearly pieces that didn't quite line up as expected or little bits of hardware that were off, but these sweet guys never got frustrated or grouchy. I would have been swearing and bleeding within about 10 minutes, but I never heard so much as a "Darn!" from either one of them - seriously impressive! It helped that they'd assembled the exact playset several times and knew the tricks I never would have known.
At the end of the day, my kids had a beautiful, complete, safe and sturdy new swingset and I didn't have to do it, and we were all very, very happy. The
Shakopee Playground Equipment Retailers Provider Name Locked
were pleasant and professional the entire day, even in the worst heat. They were also pretty clever - clearly they both have a knack for engineering and problem solving. If they can tackle a massive headache like a large playset, imagine what they can do with a project from IKEA, or Home Decorators, or anywhere else - it seems like everything today requires at least some assembly. The next time I have a "some assembly required" project on my hands, I won't hesitate to call the
