Solid Gazebo Design
Purchased in mid-May and delivered as promised May 19. I assembled/erected the product almost single handed, with some support from my wife which I completed in 3/4 days. Instructions were reasonable, only graphic with no written text, but proved to be somewhat challenging when installing the roof panels. Key challenge was to incorporate the small spacer wedges required under each roof panel (64 total) due to the requirement to align the overlapping panels, the spacer and then install the bolt from the top of the roof and through the support bars to the nut underneath. Also it was better to loose assemble some of the roof parts so that there was was some wiggle room required when lining up the roof hold down bolts.This is where some wrtten text wold have been beneficial. Also would have benfitted from two persons for all of the roof assembly. Finished installation is solid and firm as per the design. Improved assembly would be to have the spacer wedges already attached to the appropriate key parts.
The delivery was in two boxes with the roof panels in the second package. A disturbing aspect for me was that during the 3 day assembly I developed a severe allergy which must have come from the materials of the gazebo (all parts) and/or the packaging. This has never happened to me before. Not clear from what; material coatings or the possibility of the dead bugs in the packageing. Quite worrying!
We had solid curtains delivered seperately and the net curtains were included. Final install looks good and fit for purpose. Consider this to be good value as final cost was within our budget including the extra curtains.

Quality is very good
It arrived in six days and comes in two boxes. The roof is in one box which makes it easy to transport. It took about six hours to assemble with about half an hour help from my wife. If you use a square when you assemble the top edge everything lines up well. I loved that they give you extra nuts, bolts and rollers for the screens. The inside size is closer to 7 x7 ft . The instructions for assembly are very easy to follow.

Well built structure
We finally broke down and replaced our canvas gazebo (after replacing the canvas several times) and wish we had done so a long time ago.
We spend most of our time outside and this provides nice dry shelter. We bought the winter cover and are now enjoying sitting outside in the colder weather - not in the sun, but at least out of the wind.

Gazebo Over Hot Tub
Nice metal gazebo
We recently had this built for over our hot tub and when I went to open the hot tub cover it hit the roof and so I had to do a little maneuvering to get to open so it’s a little shorter than I would have liked. Also it came with bug netting which I was unaware of when I bought it.
