Hole Gage

Cheaper to build a playset on your own, buy a starter kit, or just buy the whole thing and be done with it?

I have nine little cousins (all girls), a boy is due in August, who spend the night with my husband and I about every 8 weeks or so. Where we use to live, there was a swing set that was left behind by the previous owners, they all loved to play on. I want to get them another one for our new house, but I am not sure how to get the best bang for the buck. I have found a couple at Wal-Mart that are reasonable, and they have almost everything the girls would want. They are $399-$599. My question is, would it be cheaper to buy one of those and be done with it, or is it better to buy a starter kit like from Home Depot/Lowes, or just buy the lumber and start building it like I wanting it with buying the equipment from Home Depot/Lowes? I figured if I did this it could be for all their birthdays this year; I did a bedroom at our house for them at Christmas two years ago and they loved that.

It depends on how much your time building it is worth and if you have the tools to do it. You will still need to buy lumber with a starter kit. Some kits come with drill bits and hole gages.
It depends on your skill and if you have time to do it and if you have a helper .
