We love the finished product, especially with the curtains purchased elsewhere to keep out the cold. It is well made and sturdy, and should hold up to Kansas snow and winds. The assembly was moderately difficult for my handy husband, and some steps in the video instructions were of the "and a miracle happens here" variety. We had a challenge installing a 10 x 10 gazebo onto an 11 x 11 deck next to the house (creatively removed one leg, tilted it, and slid the channel through the sliding screen door). It is definitely a two-person job for some steps. But we've spent some pleasant evenings on the deck the last 2 chilly weeks, and look forward to more pleasant temperatures.
