Is this the current model of this greenhouse? Your details say this is a screw free assembly, yet the video on the Palram website shows angle brackets on the ceiling and the wall to roof connection that has nuts. These seem to be an integral part to stability in wind. I just want to verify that those are part of this model. Thanks.
I purchased this after shopping around for over 2 years. We have a smaller one at the school where I teach gardening. It was a fantastic bargain and I have recommended it widely on FB this last week. There are a few things I wish I had know before starting: the fittings are super tight and had to be shaved a bit to start them into their adjoining pieces even with lubricant--nice tight fit but time consuming, some of the pictures did not make sense to me and there is no text at all explaining construction--sometimes too 3-4 attempts on fitting pieces to get it right. I did almost all of it myself and it took about 10 hours start to finish after creating a solid base. We were missing 2 pieces and had one mislabeled but customer service contacted me promptly and emailed me to get the exact part # and promised quick fix. It is very sturdy in the wind--25-30 MPH immediately after construction without issue. It held its temperature well at 10-12 degrees above ambient. Vent works well but I am tall (5'9") and it is a stretch to reach it....

I have been shopping around for a green house and this is the one I like, it looks nice and I can move around in it. The one I had was too short and no room to do any thing. I'm excited to plant veggies for the winter. I love this green house, also has the option of expanding if I want later on.Read More
In May 2013 I put a hot tub in the yard for my wife. Come October she said she wanted an enclosure around it for the winter. After much research I selected the Palram Silver 8x8-foot Snap and Grow Greenhouse and purchased it from Overstock.com. Shipment was quick and the package arrived in good shape. but note that it is heavy for one person. You may need help moving it around. I rated the quality as good. There was no lack or defect but you get what you pay for. There are much more expensive models out there that may be of a higher quality but at a much higher price. I rated value as excellent, judging it based on price and quality for the price. This is not a real cheapie piece of junk. This is a well designed product for the price. I made a base for the greenhouse out of 4" X 6" X10 foot pressure treated ties cut to the 96.5 X 96.5 inch specs in the plans. It is square and level, sits on my concrete block patio, and should provide a solid base for the greenhouse. I would not consider buying this greenhouse unless you plan to put it on a solid, rigid, square and level base. It is too light to just sit on the ground. Because we were building this around an existing hot tub it complicated the build just a little and may have taken us a bit longer. I would say allocate 8 hours and two people and you should have no trouble finishing the job in that time. If you have any experience with building stuff, two people can probably finish it in 4 hours. I am quite impressed with the design and engineering of the kit. Things go together well and the structure, is quite strong and rigid. Mine has only been up for a few days but we are getting 15 mph winds today and the building is not visibly flexing at all. The plastic panels flex and rattle a bit but that is to be expected. The fit of the doors is not quite right yet, but that may be due to a need for some adjustments. I think we will be able to improve it. While the assembly is not hard, I would not recommend it to a first timer to assembling a kit. At least one person needs to have some basic understanding of construction of kits and how things go together. My daughter helped me and we both characterize this as building Ikea furniture but on a bigger scale. If that sounds too hard for you, then get some help. Assembly requires a minimum of two people as there are times when one has to hold while the other places parts in place or puts them together. Or one needs to be up high and the other needs to hand parts. Definitely use silicone spray as recommended in the instructions as some parts are very tight fitting, which is good. On a few occasions we found a rubber mallet helpful to get that last little bit to go in and seat properly. And be sure to follow the sequence exactly as presented in the manual. All parts are well marked so you should have no trouble matching up pieces to the instructions. While not absolutely necessary I would recommend having a sheet metal seamer tool like this one. http://www.harborfreight.com/6-inch-jaw-straight-sheet-metal-seamer-98728.html. Some of the parts have thin edges and can get slightly dinged or slightly bent during shipping. Or, if you drop something, you can bend the edges making assembly nearly impossible. With this tool this was not a problem at all as this straightens them out quickly and easily. We did the build over two days of about 3 hours each, not including the building of the base. We stopped on the first day because the wind hit 22 mph and it started to rain. We got the frame up and the front and rear "glass". On the second day we got the rest of the panels in and finished the structure. Again, nothing hard if you have any building skills at all and you can follow the pictorial directions. As a greenhouse this should be an excellent product. However, because I am using at a hot tub enclosure I was not able to put in two braces that support the roof. Normally this would not be a problem but if I get a snow load on there the roof may be over stressed. So I am going to have to come up with a modification that will reinforce the roof. That is not a product defect or design defect. It is because I am using it for a purpose for which it was not intended. In areas where snow is not likely this might not even be an issue. I can't say how this will hold up over the years but based on my initial impressions I think it will do just fine. The plastic panels are quite tough and should hold up well to minor impacts like small branches or stuff being blown around by wind. We have already used the hot tub inside the greenhouse and it seems it is going to work very well.Read More

Shipping weight？ how to order anchor kit？
I cannot be specific as to shipping weight, but I was a bit shocked at how light the package was... However, I love the greenhouse and the quality is more than expected for the amount I paid. I did not order an anchor kit because I have lots of anchors and steel wire with clamps and thimbles. Kits are not really necessary if you have done one of these before...
This includes an anchor kit intended to be attached to a wood foundation.
Does it come with an anchoring kit? Thaks
Thank you for contacting us molly303. Unfortunately no, the anchoring kit is sold separately. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
can this grrenhouse be placed on the grass/earth as shown in the picture or do I need to build a platform? Also, I need this to winter over geranium plants. How does this greenhouse stand up to freezing temps?
Hello phillyfem, it is recommended that it be anchored to the ground as in the picture. Other customers have reviewed that they successfully used this in the winter with the addition of heat. Thank you for shopping with us.
