My wife and I spent most of the Fourth of July putting this gazebo up in our back yard. We were armed with the written instructions AND a how-to video. However, it turned out that the instructions were written in indecipherable ancient alien hieroglyphics, and the video was not actually intended to show you how to assemble the gazebo but was rather a state media propaganda piece designed to lie about the ease of putting it together. Crucial steps appeared in almost subliminal cuts.
But in the end, we prevailed.
