Received this as a Christmas gift. Took awhile to get here but was no problem due to not having the time to put it together right. Took us awhile to decide the type of foundation to use, we decided on wall block buried in ground and used cement in block holes with anchor bolts to hold 2x6 lumber on top. It took 30 8x8x16 blocks. Once the blocks were set level and square,(level is very important) using the 2x6 lumber allows for easy squaring of the greenhouse. I basically put the whole thing together by myself. Only had to have help a couple of times just to hold a piece so that I could screw it together. We have very heavy winds here and using the block/cement/wood foundation work out great. I did have a day where I didn't close the vents and lock the door and a back panel blew out due to the cheap plastic retainers the give you to hold them in. I cured this by using thin aluminum angle iron cut in about 18 inch pieces and screw it to the frame where the clips went. Worked perfect. This is one reason that I didn't give it 5 stars. The other is the Cheap air vent openers. Just the other day the wind caught on vent and it the opener popped of the greenhouse frame and flew over the building. Do yourself a favor and upgrade to auto-openers that are built better. They could have also given you a few extra bolts for attaching brackets and such. Oh this isn't Edward its his other half. He bought it for me.

I was a little disappointed in the packaging because we found 3 mistakes in the directions and that pieces were not labeled very well. led to a little confusion.

    Arrived in two boxes...directions are mostly pictures so took some time and PATIENCE. Sorted parts as best as possible.
    Good value for the money. Very sturdy construction.

    Installed in about three days.. with an additional day prior to dig and install p/t foundation and gravel bed.
    Used sill insulation as barrier between aluminum and p/t.

    Over all, very pleased.

        Received quickly, Would be nice if there was little better instructions and marking of the parts. Only have one bent piece which I have yet to call on. just have front doors to put on and I will be planting. Takes sometime to put together but very nice end results!

          Shipped in reasonable time, we inventoried the parts and discovered about a dozen missing parts, plus a number of parts that didn't belong with this greenhouse. However, emailed Hayneedle and within a few days had everything.
          The sides were well supported that made it easy, but the end with the taller panels had no support which made that part unnecessarily difficult. We used a 9 X 13 base with 2 X 6 treated lumber which worked great. The result was a very nice, roomy greenhouse which we would recommend. Better instructions with some explanation rather than just line drawings would be an improvement. Anxious to see how it holds up through the season.

            I ordered Greenhouse on a Saturday and it arrived on Thursday.
            Worked on it Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
            The directions could use a lot of improvement.
            We did call the product support number and they answered. They also said the directions could use some improvement.
            Very happy we ordered. Can't wait to fill it up.

                        Slight damage to parts upon arrival. Not your fault, probably warehouse forklift. One call to your office and the replacement parts are on their way. Very understanding and polite representative.
                        Thank you
