My 14 year old son picked out this bed. It was just what he wanted. The price was fair, and it arrived a week after placing the order. As soon as the bed arrived, my son wanted to start putting it together. I told him to wait until his father got home so he could help him. Then, I had to leave the house for about an hour. When I returned, my son was just about done putting the whole thing together. He used a power drill and had no problem with holes lining up or with deciphering the diagram that showed how to put the bed together.He is a bright and talented kid, but still I was impressed that he could manage all the pieces singlehandedly! Everything was well packed in bubble wrap, all the parts were there and nothing was scratched. When we placed the new mattress on it, I was a bit concerned because there seemed to be too much extra space surrounding the mattress. Once the mattress pad, sheets, blankets and comforter were on, however, that extra space was no longer there. The bed looks great. My only complaint is that I hit the edge of the bed with my knee everytime I drop laundry off in my son's room. (Someday I'll learn.) My son loves his new bed.
