Met my expectations. This is a quality product. Assembly is a challenge, interpreting the drawings, no written instructions. But the instructions are well done and ordered nicely. Just take your time to understand each step. There are several steps that require two people. I worked at the assembly over a period of 3 days, averaging 4 hours a day.

This green house has survived two hail storms and a blizzard with 92 mile gusts. I recommend this greenhouse for anyone who lives in Colorado.

The directions could definitely be much better, but if you watch the video on you tube, and take your time, you will make it through. For the style greenhouse and size, this will probably be your cheapest option, just a shame there isn't more quality in the product. Nevertheless, you will be satisfied with the outcome, so long as all the parts are present, and the base is done properly. The greenhouse will need to be insulated (I live in Denver and intend on using it year round), so keep that in mind. You will need two individuals to assemble. Overall, for 8x8, it isn't a bad deal, and seems like it should hold up.

Assembled this greenhouse last week, it took the better part of 3 days to complete, although my work days are not as long as they once were. I did not have anybody help me assemble it, but I did use my Kubota front end loader to hold up one side of it early in the assembly. I'm very pleased with it, it should last for a long time. My least favorite thing about it is the instruction manual that came with it. Luckily the things that I assembled wrong were easy to fix. The door handle in this picture is an example, it is backwards. I have changed it since this photo and it is now correct and working fine. As of today it has met my expectations.

I am pleased with this greenhouse so far. It took about 3 days to assemble, working mostly by myself with only a little help from my wife. Two people probably could have assembled it in at least half that time. The instructions were mostly pictures and were a little confusing at times - had to go back several times to correct errors. Seems to be sturdy and I think the double wall polycarbonate will hold heat better than single pane would. I was also pleased with the double doors, which include latches to hold one side in place and each door has a magnet which holds it open and prevents flapping in higher winds.

Greenhouse is quality made. Sturdy, no drafts, would recommend to purchase. Hangers for plants are helpful. Shelving is sturdy. Purchased October 2016. Meets my expectations.

Excellent greenhouse! I bought the greenhouse for my wife's birthday. I researched a bunch of different ones but living in New England means snow so I wanted something that has a high snow load rating. I emailed Palram and they were helpful by providing me the snow and wind ratings. I went with the Bella and my wife and I put it together on and off over the course of three days. We were skeptical of how sturdy it was when we started putting it together but once together it appears pretty solid. The greenhouse is the spacious without being too big. The instructions do take a little review prior to assembly but otherwise ok. I have two minor complaints. One is that there is a part in the instructions where it was unclear which hole to put the bolt through and I had to correct it later so there should be an added step of measuring the width of panel gaps to ensure that they are spaced correctly. The second is that for some reason one of the windows doesn't close tightly against but I think I can correct it. It's possible that it was an error on my part somehow. In any case, my wife loves it which means I'm happy with it!
