We purchased this item to fill our office space in our new home. It was delivered very quickly. I was able to assemble most of the unit by myself, but it does take some effort to do so. Two people for assembly is definitely the way to go. You will need two people to place hutch on the rear desk. There was no hardware to secure the hutch to the desk. This was easily remedied by flattening out two spare corner braces and screwing the two pieces together.This desk gives me all the room I need to work and looks great. I found the assembly to be straight forward. It took me about 5 hours, working alone.For the price, this is an excellent desk.
