It took us just that long to put together a small desk for our new addition. The space was smaller than the desk we had and so we purchased this piece and tackled it as a family. Trey came over at about the 1 hour mark and helped us with steps 14-24. I was the reader. Sheridan collected parts. Erin organized the screws, hinges and other small parts. Lauren and Ryan...kept up with the tools and volunteered to go get pizza. It was a bonding experience with no tv and lots of laughter. It was the kind of long night that ends up with more than a nice desk for our computer but memories of family time.
