Conditional recommendation

" The kit was well packed and checking the parts list found only a couple of the longer bolts missing. Upon assembly, found some of the metal poles were mismarked and several were either not marked, or marked very lightly and hard to read. You have to be very careful to get the right part at the right time. Some of the diagrams were a bit confusing, but trial and error got the job done. Covering is not the normal 3 to 6 mil plastic, but commong opaque tarp material, and will not withstand continous windy conditions. Good tie-downs included, and parts fit well. Completed unit is solid, and easily lifted by one person if it has to be moved before staking down. It took me about 6 hours to assemble, and an hour could have been shaved from that time if the parts had been better labeled. Just a suggestion to Northern, make all the bolts the same length, this would simplify the process and save sorting - or package the bolts seperatly and include length measurment in the description - making checking the parts list much easier.

nice and cozy

" This green house kept my tomatoes and peppers nice and cozy during the recent freeze (19 degrees). I put a light in with them since it was going to be so cold and nothing was damaged from the freeze. Plenty of room for my big pots. Could be a little taller. "

SHELTERLOGIC GREENHOUSE IS MULTI-FUNCTIONAL

" I have nothing but praise for the Shelterlogic Grow-It Greenhouse - 6ft.L x 8ft.W x 6ft.6in.H, Model# 70602. In addition to being an extremely easy product to assemble, it has greatly reduced my winter workload. In just two easy and relaxed hours, I was able to completely assemble the greenhouse without any assistance. The instructions were extremely easy to read and easy to follow. But the real thrill was knowing that I didn't have to dig up and winterize my wife's 18' banana tree. I simply trimmed the tree and built the greenhouse around it. Now, with the use of an approved and safe electrical heater, I can use the greenhouse to maintain the proper temperature that allows the banana tree to stay safely planted in the ground yet not continue to grow until the spring. The greenhouse has a very neat and clean look and actually enhances the appearance of my yard. This is a superb product and I highly recommend its purchase and use. "

Well made little green house

" Nice little addition to the garden. Unit seems well made and I think it will hold up well. Looks darn good, too. Assembly did take a lot more than the two hours the instructions mentioned. That was mostly because the instructions are SO BAD! I did call customer support at one point and they were very helpful. I would recommend this product. "

Pleasantly surprised

By Norma
from Gillette, Wy
" I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of construction for the price. The frame was very easy to put together as all the parts were numbered. The cover was a little tricky but once we figured it out it went together very well. We ended up drilling bolts into the concrete to secure from the Wyoming winds. Will have to wait to see how the cover will hold up. "

" This Greenhouse allows me to start and keep plants safe in the early stages. As I live in Colorado I like to start seeds earlier but can't with the freeze off & on. With this product I as well use it most of the year long. Plants are a way to unload my day. "

Shelterlogic 6 X 8 X 6.5 Model 70602

from Easton, PA
" My wife and I assembled this shelter in about two hours. The directions are easy to follow and accurate. We found it easy to assemble in our garage and easy to transport out to our garden for anchoring during a cold and slightly windy day. The temperature during a sunny spring day has been 55F outside, 85F on the inside providing plenty of warmth for early plantings. Evening temperatures inside and outside eventually match but plants are protected from wind through the day and night and we look forward to successful early start on our planting season this year. "
