Web description says 10-12 hours for two people - here -

I can't imagine it is that poorly designed - I would imagine maybe 4-6 hours for a person who is the least tool savvy, as it is predrilled. Comes with a DVD with step by step how-to, so your family should be able to assemble it as a family project - will make the kids appreciate it a LOT more if they help build it too.

Last time I helped a neighbor put one similar to this up instructions said 8 hours for 2 people - was done and in use inside of 1 hour with 2 people, albeit tool-handy and with all the right tools at hand.

I assume you dinged my response because I did not give cost ? Sorry - a Handyman Search the List) should run from about $20-25/hr at extreme low end in low-wage areas (or one just getting started) up to as much as $50-70/hr for one with contractors license or who used to be a fully qualified contractor but now is a handyman just to keep busy or as a semi-retirement or back out of retirement job.

I know several general contractors and carpenters who had successful companies who just gave up the business and sold out but did not want to retire, and went to doing very small jobs as a Handyman because they like doing the work, but not the paperwork and government forms and such, and they can work as much or as little a week as they feel like.
