I assembled this bed myself, and I am a 65 year old woman! the directions are a hoot, being a rough translation from Vietnamese, but the diagrams for the bed are clear. The trundle is another story--the holes are not there for the screws for the wheels, so you have to drill them yourself. It is way too easy to put the wheels on the wrong side of the head/foot pieces (I did, and had to do it over). However, it looks great. the bed is quite high with mattress and box spring. Caveat do not tighten screws until you are sure everything is where it is supposed to be!
