First and foremost I want to say I am loving my greenhouse and am VERY happy with my purchase. Now that it is fully assembled.
Assembling the product was a HUGE hassle. I read all the reviews prior to purchasing and not one of them complained about the assembly, but I had issues. Fixable issues thanks to the hubby, but still extremely annoying and frustrating when you’re trying to put together.
The instructions were simply a labeled blueprint style image with a parts list. That part did not bother me at all as each section was fully labeled and matched the part list number/letter combinations making it easy to decipher what was what and where they went.
The problem I had was after I laid all the parts out and made sure there was nothing missing, there wasn’t and then proceeded to assemble. I followed the blueprint to a “T” and I just could not get the parts to connect flush and even. I went through and traded parts and switched some out for a different piece etc and sometimes it worked and other times not so much.
After finally getting one section of the garden house together I realized that the metal rods were so sharp that when I was inserting them into the plastic connectors, it was scraping down the sides and creating plastic build up and creating a barrier where the rods could not go any further.
After further inspection I realized that not only was that happening but some of the plastic pieces were already filled with flash. Flash is the build up created from the manufacturing process and should have been deburred as they call it.
Having a background in manufacturing of many kinds, including plastics, I knew exactly what I was looking at and with the help of my husband we were able to take a flat spade bit and scour the inside of each plastic connector to rid them of the plastic flash and make it easier for the rods to fully insert.
Once we had the problem figured out the rest of the assembly process was simple! So while I am very dissatisfied with having to fix all these plastic connectors, I am beyond thrilled with my finish product.
Once all the issues from above were figured out, assembling the greenhouse was a breeze. The first thing I did was separate all the pieces out and made sure I was not missing anything.
Since it was a little chilly outside I decided to build both sides of the green house in my living room and finished it off outside.
I first lined up all my parts and double checked the blueprint to make sure I had the correct pieces ready to connect to the correct poles. I then proceeded to connect all the pieces together until I reached the top shelf. This whole process took very little time once the issues mentioned above were addressed.
At this point I took the two built side pieces and the rest of the parts outside to continue adding in the top rise and the roof pieces.
I am 5ft 4in tall and can easily stand inside with plenty of height left. Attaching the roof pieces was pretty easy but I did have to stand on my tip toes for the very top section. My husband would have had no issues but I wanted to do this by myself. 🙂
Once the metal frame was fully assembled I decided I didn’t really like where I had placed it so I grabbed a couple of the pole sections to lift it up and move it. It moved easily and weights barely anything when empty.
The included shelves do not snap into place or anything like that. They sort of just sit on the metal rods and not very tight. I am only using these for starter plants and seedlings so this does not concern me much, but is mention-able.
The product description says each shelf can hold up to 75 pounds that is a lot and I’m not so sure I would even try, but that is what it boast.
Attaching the plastic cover that was also included in the kit was not as hard as I expected it to be. As I mentioned previously I had read the reviews left by other shoppers and one of them mentioned letting your cover lay in the sun for a few moments to allow the heat to hit it and help it become more pliable and easier to unfold. This made sense to me, so I did follow the reviewers advice and I had no issues unfolding and opening up the outer plastic. No stickiness, no rips or tears, nothing, just easily unfolded.
Once fully unfolded laying in the grass, i saw that the door opening was already zipped closed. So instead of opening this up and putting it on one side at a time, I would leave it zipped closed and put it on like a T-Shirt from the top down. I had my husband grab one side and I grabbed the other and again on my tip toes we got it over the top and with a little maneuvering and shifting were able to pull it down and into place.
The material is a little thinner than a tarp, but thicker than a strong garbage bag if that makes sense. The length is longer than the height of the whole unit making it easy to set these up on blocks or a base if needed or wanted. There are ties on the inside of the cover in various places that help secure the cover to the poles.
At this point I haven’t fully decided where I actually want to place this in my yard, so I have not used stakes or tie back string with this unit yet, but I don’t foresee there being any issues for my use. Both were included in the kit as well.
Overall I am loving this green house, it’s exactly what I wanted. Its nice and small but big enough to walk in and out of easily with trays or pots and planters. This garden house can hold quite a few plants and other garden essentials and for the price I am beyond thrilled with my purchase and have no regrets!
