I purchased this shelter last fall as a way to store some hay bales and feed for my chickens.I had tons of space and it was much higher than I expected allowing to stack more bales than anticipated. It took approx 6 hours to assemble with 2 people. Very impressed with the heavy quality of the panels and the tarp. Used it this past winter with only minor snow build up requiring manual cleaning, otherwise it help up nicely to the snowloads where I live. Had a few issues assembling that weren't really a big deal but added to the time it took to complete. One was that the rope supplied wasn't on a spool and became very tangled as you were trying to use it to secure the tarp. Second was that there were alot of burs at the welded seams that I hand filed away to ensure they did not rub on the tarp. And finally, I ran out of tape to wrap the bolt joints across the peak, so I ended up using my own duck tape. Anyways, so far so good, love that it is so rugged and it still looks as new as the day I assembled it.
