We ordered this bed about 3 weeks ago and received it yesterday. For both the bed itself and the trundle there are only 4-5 steps to construct it. It looked very simple. The bed is real wood but to put it together they give you screws that require an alan wrench. The alan wrench they give you is tiny while these screws (#5) are huge. We ended up stripping these screws because the fit was so tight and the alan wrench kept slipping. We then had to use a vice grip to get them out. I then went to Home Depot and purchased real screws and put the bed portion together. The trundle was just as easy but once again we ran into two issues. The first and most annoying occurred while attaching the side boards. Each side board has 2 holes for the screws. The 1 side boards holes when pre-drilled were not lined up properly in manufacturing so we could only get 1 of the screws in. The second issue was that the pre-drilled holes for 1 of the wheels was off as well. We did finally get the bed all together and it is beautiful. Our daughter loves it and it is very sturdy and solid but we are extremely annoyed at the sloppy manufacturing of this product. First off GET RID OF THE ALAN WRENCH! Real wood = real screws - flat head or phillips head does not matter! Second an inspection/quality control review during manufacturing wouldn't be a bad idea either.
