Rated 5 out of 5Â by Baddog Excellent product with few issues
All of the glitches mentioned in the previous reviews showed up. Had to re-tap one hole, file one opening, etc.This indicated that production is consistent. Instructions also left some things out or the diagrams were wrong or misleading. That said, the boxes arrived with some damage to the packaging but with the parts protected in the packaging and well labled, overall quality is very good, and with a significant sheetmetal and mechanical experience, my wife and I were able to assemble it in about 16 hours. Since we didn't have the 6 men to do the job, we had to use equipment/tools to do the lifting for us. After careful evaluation, we decided to put almost all of the roof on before mounting posts except where we needed lift points for the equipment. Then we simply finished attaching the corner roof panels. We were impressed with the quality and the sturdiness of the pieces and the finished gazebo. If you have some mechanical skill/knowlege and expect the occasional "glitche' and can work thru it, you will be very pleased with this product. Five or six strong guys might make this an easy one day project but connecting the posts is tedious and would call for the lifters to keep things "very" steady while bolts are installed. I would still consider renting a "high Jack" or lift for one side that could handle the post height and let the manpower be shifted to the other end. if you do that three strong men can do it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Marvin This product is a great product
It took about 7 hours to put together. Parts were marked properly. Put side face peaces together first then the legs. The roof frame next then put the roof on. Not that hard to do. Very happy with it. I had to put clear silcone were the face peaces come together because it leaked when raining.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dancho Excellent product, but very hard to assemble
This is a very good looking and sturdy gazebo, but it was really hard to assemble. Not only the instructions were not easy to follow in the first place, but there was actually a step missing so we had to improvize. You'll need at least 3 people to help you put this together (the instructions recommend 6 people!) due to the size and weight of the gazebo. It took us a total of 2 days (over 10 hours) from start to finish. Price is also a bit on the higher side, but overall value is good.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jrdj the finished product is beautiful but very difficult to put up
i agree with the other gentleman who rated this product: the finished product is beautiful and sturdy but the building process took a good 9 hours to complete (with help). some of the parts didnt fit well so i had to modify them. someone who isnt handy might have real trouble getting this gazebo together.
