This is a great bed. My daughter loves it. We put it together on boxing day, starting at 130pm...broke for supper at 5, started again at 8. Finished the final touches just before midnight. The instructions are clear. The flat out tell you not to be a hero and put this together solo. They print it in big numbers : 420 mins. That is pretty dang accurate. The bed comes in 5 heavy boxes. The until weighs just around 500lbs. Some particle board parts, some MDF. It's crazy sturdy. Not like Ikea furniture where it's full of little bits of wooden dowels. I think only 8 in total for this bed. The rest were bolts. Instructions are clear; any attempt to deviate from them will certainly spell disaster, if not a flurry of F-bombs. It was a labor of love and I see this thing staying in the exact same place for rest of time. Daughter loves the desk, and all the storage. Quality item. It's an ordeal to assemble but very worth it.
Well made! Huge bed/desk combo
No, not really. 2 people, one a tradesman, and it still took us almost 5 hours. But the instructions are very very clear. No missing parts, very solid. The main challenge was keeping our daughter out of the construction zone! She's very happy with the bed and had to get Nana and Papa on video chat to let them know that she really liked "Santa's" present.
