This was fairly easy to assemble, however it took me about two hours to do it on my own – and I’m fairly handy. As someone else mentioned, an electric screwdriver will really help. The directions are not the most clear. They lack a lot of detail and have several steps per picture. I noticed that for the smaller parts there was just no way to tell which way they should be facing based on the picture. It’s easy to reason it out, but the instructions won’t really give you a lot of clues. The color is pretty true to the picture. It does have a cherry color to it, so be aware. For me, it was exactly what I was looking for. A couple of notes. The wooden pegs used for some of the assembly are smaller than the pre-drilled holes. You might want to have some wood glue handy when you put this together. Also, I was having a heck of a time getting one piece to attach. It turned out that I had over tightened (with the electric screwdriver) the peg part of the cam bolts. If you’re having a problem getting the cam bolts to lock you may want to try loosening the peg part (less than a quarter turn for me) so they line up better. Once I figured that out it made it easier and everything came together without any more issues. This is fairly sturdy. It came in two boxes, one about forty pounds, the other close to eighty. Just be aware that they’re heavy. The ‘fire’ is fine, about what you’d expect for this price point. It’s fun to play around with the lighting, through the loud beep is a little disconcerting. One thing that I don't remember seeing on Overstock which was included in the box information was that a television over 46 inches was not recommended,. I haven’t played with the heater really, it’s June, but I did turn it on briefly as I was messing around with the whole thing and it started shooting out hot air right away. Overall I’d recommend this product.
