|My boyfriend purchased this greenhouse for me for my birthday. It arrived a day or two ahead of the ETA, if I recall correctly. It was packaged in two separate boxes that made it much more manageable for someone small like me (5'5"/130lbs) to move around on my own.
With work schedules as messed up as they are due to COVID, we only go around to building it a couple of days ago. We created a frame out of 4x4s based on the measurements given in the manual, which I had looked up well ahead of time.
Unfortunately, one of the panels that was needed for the base of the frame arrived pretty banged up. Because we don't have much time off, we opted to build the greenhouse anyway and just make sure the damaged part was on the back of the greenhouse. We later got pretty stuck trying to make sure the thing was square and I'm 99% sure it was because of how bent that one panel was.
Since I am stubborn, I insisted the greenhouse would square itself up as we got it put together. Most of the review I had read mentioned that it seemed incredibly flimsy until it was completely put together and I have to agree. Hell, even though it is completely assembled I can still move it around on my own (I was being a bit anal about centering it on our base so I could screw it down).
Lo and behold, we have finished assembling it after a few hangry moments in the July heat and it has indeed squared itself up. The back panel is still bowed so I've only screwed it onto our base by the corners but that's okay because the wind on my property tends to blow northeast to southwest and vice versa so it'll primarily be stressing the sides.
I am very happy with it. I also got a kick out of a few small details that I was not aware of when I bought it; such as the nifty little magnet that will hold the door open and against the greenhouse so you don't have to worry about the wind ravaging it.
If this website allows it, I'll update my review next year after I have been able to make use of it for some time.
