Well it arrived today! At least in parts. Ha! Parts is not even the word for it. I think DH counted over 300 bolts alone and just sighed. Actually he is in pretty good humor. Why do men see parts of something as a great challenge? To me it is just plain scary. We had ordered only 10 ft poles as the bedroom I am putting it in would accommodate that ok but 12 ft will make it very tight. Guess what?? They sent 12 ft poles. DH is pondering over it and don't know if we will try and work with this or cut them down. We might try and keep them. Right now they are just laying on the floor with the thousand little bags of bolts, nuts and what ever that connects it all together. Thanks everyone again for all the advice pouring in. I need everything I can get. Keep it coming!!
