We bought this bed for our master bedroom to replace an old metal frame and box springs. The wood is high quality and has a really nice finish. One thing I like is that the bolts fit into nuts that are secured in the wood, rather than screwing directly into the wood (there are some parts that use wood screws, but not the ones that matter structurally). It was designed so that you could take apart, move it, and put it back together several times without having problems. If was also pretty easy to put together. Having two of us was helpful, but not essential. If you are over 6' tall, be aware that getting in and out of this bed might be a bit awkward, especially if you are heavy as well, because it is lower to the ground than the average bed by 3-4 inches. It probably wouldn't be an issue unless you had really bad knees or something.
