I measured it out beforehand but was still surprised by the size and weight. The 32lb weight must be per box - the entire unit is quite heavy but easy enough to push across my wood floors assembled by one person. Was packed very well, each piece individually wrapped and the outside reinforced with foam and cardboard. Arrived in two working days, no blemishes. Assembled by myself and it took about an hour, everything fit and no fighting with components. It does make some clicking noises when the house is silent and the flames are on. It is no louder than my folks' gas stove so not a big issue. The remote controls Log brightness, flame brightness, and turns the heater on/off. The heater thermostat is set on the stove as is the flame brightness. Each has an on/off switch. Really the only thing that gives it away as a "fake" fireplace is the white writing on the grill about it getting hot. Love it!
