I love this greenhouse. It's roomy and sturdy. I didn't give it a five rating because the assembling directions were somewhat difficult it. It takes two people to put it together.
At first I was skeptical when I saw the polycarbonate panels. I thought it was some rinky dink structure and that it wouldn't even be able to stand up on its own. But I was wrong. It was pretty easy to assemble. My husband started late one afternoon and had the aluminum frame erected by the time I got home from work. The next day we put up the rest of it starting at about noon and finished by dusk. After reading some of the other reviews we made sure to begin on a level surface. That's the key. If it's not completely level, it's not going to go together. Also when installing the outside transition (the aluminum piece that goes over the wall panels to the roof panels) make sure you take note of the picture detail. (This is for people who don't like to read instructions) It will save you a lot of time and frustration. That was the only snag in an otherwise simple assembly. Once we had the greenhouse put together we had some very high winds and gusts up to 70 mph. I thought for sure we'd be picking up pieces of it down the road but to my amazement it's still standing. We had a lot of rain and there are no spots or streaks and it looks beautiful. We also bought the automatic vent opener (very good investment) and the sun shade and some hangers. We didn't get any of the shelves but have a potting table and a shelving unit that we had purchased a few years ago from Lowe's. My husband also purchased a tie down kit from Lowe's just to be safe as we have some bad winters here in the mountains. Overall we're very happy with the purchase and only wish we had bought a larger one.
This greenhouse is really great but warning, it is extremely hard to assemble, and my husband is an engineer, with an ironworker background. He ran pipe from our well to it for the water, get the picture? He is awesome at putting things together and there was a lot of swearing going on with this but in the end it is amazing. Never thought I would say I can't wait for winter to use it. The solar works great and saves a lot of headache and electricity. I am going to see if hubby can actually hook that up to some lighting options in addition to the fan. It is upscale thus the price. For what you get it is well worth it for me. I wanted solar, timed watering as I spend enough time in the outside garden. From that perspective it is great.
