Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bookoocraig Worst Purchase ever!
Bought this in Nov '14 and had it professionally installed in Feb of this year. Took a day(not including the sturdy base). A June storm blew it off just like that. We woke up and the shed/green house was gone. Real flimsy aluminum frames, it didn't even last one season. Lived up to this review's title, WORST Purchase EVER! True buyer's remorse so buyers BEWARE!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by snowscout Greenhouse arrives...finally.
After some delay the second box arrived. 8 hrs to assemble?? perhaps the very windy conditions during that week made checking and sorting the inventory last 2 hrs. It definitely helped we have been married for 40 years to initiate and finish this project. The greenhouse/storage unit (2/3 and 1/3) looks amazing on our patio east of our home, plenty of space and sunshine between the house and the fence. It is being used to house all my cacti collection during the winter, I am getting older and moving in and out of the house twice a year has become an ordeal. My wife was getting very impatient pulling out all the prickles and doing first aid procedures. We have not received our first snow and i am honestly wondering if the roof can handle our Utah snow storms but we trusted the reviews attesting to the roof capacity. It did very well against a wind storm, I believe it helped being installed between the garage and the fence. The 1/3 of this unit is a small storage unit (4ftx6ft) great for all our gardening tools. The T001, a special tool for almost all of the screws and nuts is a life saver! Yes, it took us 4-5 days to assemble because prevalent windy conditions and because we wanted to inspect every step carefully before we moved to the next one. It looks great and we are already receiving a lot of positive comments about this unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kodster Doesn't Live Up To Claims, Versus Wind
I bought this, thinking it would be perfect for my needs. Unfortunately, it didn't hold up to the 60 mph gusts of wind that we experienced 4 times in the past year that the manufacturer promised it would survive through (rated at much higher winds). Blew it completely to smithereens. I'm out of the money spent on it, plus my time and labor. Most of the panels I was able to salvage, but the frame is useless. I will go and buy the lumber to build a more stable frame, and use the panels that I was able to salvage, but sorely disappointed, because this will set my earlier plans of getting plants started and going, before putting them in my raised beds for the season, all to a much later date, which will shorten my growing season, since I live in zone 3 on the prairies of North Dakota.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandigee Just what I wanted - the real review.
Wanted a hobby greenhouse to keep the rodents from eating all my veggies. If you take the time to sort all the parts so you can find them before you begin, the greenhouse goes up quite easily, although it takes a good 8 hours with 2 people for this particular kit. It is very substantial when together and I just love it. Stays quite warm inside even on chilly nights. The shed is great for all my tools. Also ordered the automatic vent opener and it works perfectly every time. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by farmer01 It is fun to install this green house.
The good part of this green house is that it has a small storage room 4x6 feet. This storage is conveniently to put your tools to hide inside during the winter. One thing to aware of is that do not assemble this green house if there is a wind. I experienced the difficulty of the bending of the frame and hard to setup the side because of the wind. The wind will broken your parts if it is not completed. Other than that everything seem fine to assemble it. I will see how long it will last.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pule Very Good Value for an attractive and useful item
I am happy so far with the greenhouse. It looks very nice and went together rather easy. I am in my mid eighty’s and put it together entirely by myself, so you know it has to be easy to assemble.
As to time: I do not hit the ball anymore so it took about three days to assemble. I am impressed with the design. It is light weight and yet, when together and tightened up, is strong.
When I ordered it I also downloaded the assembly manual and read and studied it while I waited for the greenhouse to arrive. That helped make the assembly easy and manual easier to follow. The only problem was one missing piece. Fortunately it was not needed till the last step and can be put on anytime, so I can wait for it to come. Good thing, as I contacted Home Depot for it and they said they would send it, but it has not come yet. But! It has only been a couple of months.
I cannot attest to its ability to take wind. It is setup with a lot of wind protection, so even though we have had a lot of high wind it only gets a breeze. The plan was to use it to extend the short growing season we have in these Utah Mountains and it seems it will do that. I put a pot of snapdragons in it and some water bottles just to test it. The water bottles and snapdragons outside are frozen stiff, but the bottles inside do not have ice in them and the snapdragons are still alive. They look sad, but alive. There is no heat in the greenhouse except it has water bottles and concrete blocks in it. Starting this week it is covered in snow and have not found any leaks yet.
Bottom line: the tool shed on the end facing the other way worked out just right for me. The greenhouse looks good, is very strong and seems like it will do the job it was purchased for. The only thing I would change, if I could, would be a door between the tool shed and the greenhouse. At regular price it is cheaper, for the same quality of greenhouse, than any other I found, but I purchased it on sale for almost half price, so it is a tremendous value. Thank you Home Depot.

The greenhouse was what we wanted. A little trouble following directions. Took longer than the suggested time to install. Overall we are pleased with our purchase
