The greenhouse took 2 very capable and knowledgeable men 3 days to erect . The instructions are clearly not written by a person who has attempted to erect the structure. It is not shown anywhere whether the instructions are to be read viewing the greenhouse from the outside looking in or the inside looking out: such a simple thing to clarify from the outset. The information regarding when to fit the additional bolts needed to secure the window frame and roof cross struts should be visible when erecting the side frames, but it is shown much later, this necessitates disassembling work already done - ridiculous . The overall dimensions given as advertised were inaccurate, so if you are putting a concrete base down be aware that the greenhouse is bigger than the advertised 12' x 8'. The door handle did not fit because of the powder coating on the frame. Neither do the two clips that secure the door handle in place, we had to drill the door plate to make them fit. The glass for the side vents were 10mm too small and had to be secured in place by silicone. The black plastic spacers used to fit the acrylic curved panels to the glass were badly bent and warped, these had to left in the sun to soften and be re-shaped. The glass pack as delivered is extremely heavy, impossible to move without MHE and therefore a health and safety issue - this needs to be split into smaller packs to allow safe handling. During the erection and the many discussions, and re-work that was done, and frustration with the lack of information supplied, I wished I hadn't ordered it. Looks good now its completed. Worth the money? Possibly! Worth the hassle of the erection - definitely not.
