"I bought the carport for my mom and the wife and I drove up to Alabama to put it up. We took our time and put it up in about 6.5 hrs, but it could be done faster if the directions were a bit better. It is actually very well made, all the parts were in the boxes, with some screws and sealer tape left over. It turned out really nice, my mom was delighted and cooked us some pork chops smothered in gravy! I highly recommend this carport, it is well made, you should have two people to put it up, makes it a lot easier. And maybe you will get some pork chops for your effort!" - Chuck
