I assembled it by myself, which was a little awkward, but doable. Fairly sturdy, seems like good wood. I wish it was a couple more inches higher so i could fit my guitar cases under the bed. Only real complaint is how far the frame sticks out around the mattress. It leaves a gap between the top of your mattress and the wall, and all the way around the mattress. Plus I've already stubbed my toe 3 times and I'm sure to break a bone someday.
