My husband is very handy, but there was still a lot of assembly with this fireplace. He and my son worked on it for a couple of hours, but did get it together and most things fit nicely. One door is not totally symmetrical the way it hangs, but it is not terribly noticeable. The fireplace does have an odor, but by today that has nearly disappeared. My husband commented several times how impressed he was that the unit is actually wood and not press board. Once assembled it is quite heavy. I would say well over 100 pounds. My husband suggested that if it was a distance from the place of assembly to where the actual fireplace was located, leaving the heater out until placement in the room would make transporting much easier. The flame is a basic orange shade, but the adjustable flame height is very nice and the ability to not have heat, but flames only, is a great feature. The fireplace does heat the den and makes for a cozy atmosphere. We are quite pleased with this purchase and it will be a welcome addition during the rainy, cold months of fall and winter. I would recommend this fireplace and am looking for another to purchase for our son and his family.
