We have had this greenhouse for over 4 months now. My wife and I had no problem with the instructions. The suggestion regarding silicone spray should be a requirement but when both parts being joined are siliconed they slide together easily. The little tool for sliding the supports into retainers at the seems of panels did not work effectively; better to get a large paid of channel locks and squeeze the support end into the retainer. There was one part that arrived broken but the company replaced it with no questions asked and it arrived in under 48 hours. The parts are labelled well; sorting them before assembly helps. The greenhouse itself seemed shaky during assembly but at the end when the braces and supports are in a tightened it becomes very solid.
So far we have had very heavy rains and wind gust to 40 mph with no damage. We even had a rabbit and squirrel run inside accidentally and bash against the back panels trying to get out with no damage.
In the sun it warms up fast in the morning. When it is above 90 we run a fan. All the plants have done fine so far. We both feel this was worth the money,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoesPub Great quality greenhouse. A little pricey.
I originally bought this greenhouse to have a place for us boys to hang out in the wintertime (with a heater of course). Since winter broke, we've used it as a greenhouse and love it. At first, the directions were difficult to grasp. Once you get the hang of it its much easier. Make sure you start on level ground. I built a platform (you can see in picture) which helped with it being level. I was amazed at the engineering and thought that went into the product. Amazing. Its very light weight so make sure you secure to a base.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hrGreenhouse Nice greenhouse but get your tools out.
There were bent parts on arrival, due to the usual shipping clumsiness. But they could be bent back. Some of the weather stripping was torn and stuck to random parts -- again, shipping.
To assemble the greenhouse, I had to grind down various tabs so they would fit in place. It's as if Palram had never attempted to assemble their product. Some window rails were completely closed and had to be pried open. We invented better ways to install various parts, especially the roof, which was presented in the instructions in the wrong order. We ended up using a huge array of tools to get it all to work. It took two people sixteen hours not the six that was advertised.
However, it's a solid greenhouse. Anything that complicated won't snap together out of the box, though I don't know why. Just get ready to take a deep breath and get after it.
We ended up returning the anchoring kit, as it was un-installable, once the greenhouse was built. You can't climb on the roof to install needed parts and you can't pry off the railing protectors once their in place.

2 of us assembled this product in a weekend. It was easy to put together. The pictures were fairly straight forward.

This product was easy for two people to build in one day. I do however wish the panels were thicker. Ordered shade kit from the company, it got here quick and was easy to install.

This product is not a "snap" to assemble. Be prepared to spend hours, likely multiple days putting your Snap And Grown together. I even had 5 people assisting, two of which work in construction and it made for a 9 hour process-still not finished. The pieces do not fit together well. We noticed from the start it was very difficult to get parts to fit together as the directions instruct. The directions are basically non-existent minus many drawings that only confuse you more than help you. Lastly, the customer service was not good. I ordered an 8X12 greenhouse and received an 8X8. You are better off building your own than purchasing this product.

Like the greenhouse but you better be real good at putting it together. Directions aren't too good. It will take you awhile to assemble. If you have any problems you have to contact palram and not where you bought it. I had some parts that I didn't get and I had to reorder them. Company was very good at getting me the parts that I didn't get. Order the heavy duty shelves. They are really nice and look good with the greenhouse.

I have read the reviews and have to say...this was an easy put together greenhouse. Now mind you i did not assemble it myself, my contractors put it together for me. Even the youngest of the two said he would build these everyday. You just need to go one page at a time and take your time...the foundation seems to be the most important part. Must have a level and sturdy foundation to put this on. Yes the panels do remind me of the tops to the cakes and things you get in the bakery, but a lot stronger. As it is being put together it seems wobbly, but once every thing is finished it is pretty rugged. I have not seen how it will do through a Maine winter yet, but am planning on installing a heater inside so that i can use it into the late fall and also get an early start in the spring. All and all, it is money well spent. Great product and is what it says it is...just don't try to rush things and take it one page at a time...counting ground prep you will have about 4-5 days into it from start to finish.
