I was looking at the playsets at Home Depot online but they are only offered online and not in the store. I'd like to see it first before buying. Where is a good place to buy a swing set or playset that is well constructed for under $1000 in the North Raleigh area or Triangle area? If they are an instock item, that is even better. I'd like to get one this coming weekend. (7/14 or 7/15) Any one recommend a set they have purchased?

How about Costco? They have one which is just over $1000 I think. It seems like it has all the right stuff.

There's a Home Depot one for $599 + about $50 worth of 4x4s. Pre-cut, you assemble. It's small and modest but seems well rated. You likely won't find anything for under $1K anywhere else.

I was personally leaning towards the Sam's Club Cambridget set. It's enormous and looks fan-freaking-tastic. But it's priced at $1199 and is reported to be extremely time consuming to put together due to it's complexity and the fact some holes may not line up perfectly.

Our swing set is made by Cedar Works. I did a TON of research, and ended up with them. It's fantastic. It's made in Maine and they ship it down. Wouldn't work for this weekend and of course you probably wouldn't see one before owning it...but it is great.

We looked at all playset options the company we chose is Heritage Playsets.net They have so many design options. The sales rep was great he helped us within our budget and did not upsale any thing. In the end we got a swing set that the children will grow into and wont grow out of for along time. Qaulity was far beyond our expectations what a value!

We bought our seven years ago at Woodplay of the Carolinas on Lumley Road. They are an Raleigh based and founded company. I don't know about pricing anymore, but it seems I paid $1800 back then. Both of our kids still love it. We upgraded a few things a couple of years back.

I imagine since the o.p. posted the question over a year ago he's all set with his playset, but I thought I would post in case anyone else was looking for one since the thread has been recently revived.

We purchased the Sunray set at Costco a couple of years ago. It's very nice for a do it yourself set. We seriously considered using Backyard Playgrounds as they came highly recommended, but I didn't like the fact they used treated pine for their set. Plus Backyard Playgrounds no matter how reasonable people said they were couldn't beat the price and features of a do it yourself set from Costco, imo. You get a lot more for your money when you put it together yourself. If putting it together yourself is an issue I have heard the store has a list of people in the area that can put it together for you for a fee of course. We never asked so I am not sure how true that is.

Kelly, last spring we did the same thing. Got a Sunray set from Costco. We love it. The kids love it. The neighborhood kids love it. And some of the parents have even given the trapeze bar a whirl. The hardest part about putting it together was getting a level spot in our not so level back yard. And yes we did see folks on craigslist who would come put it together. But hubby worked on it on and off for a couple of days. You can't beat the price or quality.

The other day I noticed that the Durham Costco still had one of the 2008 models for sale. But they should be getting a 2009 model soon.
