"I’m a 45-year-old female and we just received delivery of our new bed. After reading some of the reviews and one gentleman’s account of assembly, I thought I’d try and give my husband a little hand and start things off whilst he was at work; I didn’t think it was fair that he had to come home from work to spend the evening assembling our bed. I began with step one at 10:30am and at 1:45pm, our bed was totally assembled and made! It was so precise with the step by step instructions and I moved through it quite easily. I think maybe David should’ve taken the kids out himself and let his wife assemble the bed :). Seriously, an electric screwdriver is not a necessity and the job is easily done by just one person. I had no problems with the nuts and bolts or putting together slats. If that sort of stuff is a genuine concern, I’d recommend just paying for assembly. I can’t wait to see my husband’s face when he comes home and our bed is ready for him! Job well done and the bed looks amazing! All parts included and I even had a bag labelled spare parts, in case they were needed. "
