Bought this and spent the day putting it togeather per the instructions. And the very same night one of the velcrow wraps came right off the bug curtain while closeing it up to keep the bugs out the very same night. needle and thread later we moved on. till the very first wind. The top metal braces that hold the sides and roof togeather were destroyed like butter. This china metal is paper thin and had no chance with any type of gust or wind burst. Poor design, Poor materal, Poor craftsmenship. I will be reading more on China vs American made. $XXX wasted.
You can never tell by pictures but this is every bit as beautiful as it looks. It's big, classy, and fairly solid given its relatively low price. I don't know about putting it together as we paid our handymay to do that but he managed it in a day, including putting the curtains on. It's a perfect addition to our new patio
