My husband and I put this together for our fur babies in 15-20 minutes. We left the cylinder tunnel off and to the side because the baby of the 4 loves to roll around in it.

It's very durable. We have adult 3 cats ranging from 12-14 lbs and 1 young adult cat that's 8 lbs. All 4 of them are on it at the same time frequently and it hasn't broken or tipped over. The heaviest fell off while rolling in catnip and it withheld him freaking out and hanging on for his life, so I don't think it'll fall anytime soon. The little bowl that hangs out on the side holds the heaviest cat with ease as well.

My only complaint is that the hammock falls off easily, but it's to be expected with the hooks it comes with.

If I remember, I will follow up in 3 months to add how it's handled my crazy fur babies.

*UPDATE*

So, I remembered! About 1.5 months into excessive use, the top tier became too lose and no amount of screwing it in would make it stay. We even tried some glue, but it was too wobbly. I ended up using the wood Gorilla Glue to keep it together and it holds up well without a screw. My littlest cat loves the bowl and has torn up the rope. He managed to unbraid it. My eldest cat would only scratch the front post and he scratched it into oblivion, so I turned over the tower and switched it with another poll to let him keep scratching. Last, we ended up switching the hammock because they love to play through the hole in the middle tier.

Overall, I still say I definitely got my money's worth. It's used daily by 4 cats and to be completely honest, I didn't expect to last this long.

**December 2016 Update**

Besides everything I've mentioned, I wanted to share how I revamped the tower. I'm in the process of replacing all the rope posts with some rope I bought off here. Despite being in the middle of a DIY project, I wanted to share how it looks and my cats are in love with it.

The only reason why I'm putting so much effort into keeping this tower is that my husband's baby is in love with the bowl, so I can't take it away from him. Lol

Oh yeah. I bought a bed to go on the top since the perch was long gone. Turns out that it was a good idea. :)

I hope my extensive review helped and gave ideas to all those who've read!

Here's the rope that I bought to redo the scratching posts:

T.W . Evans Cordage 23-410 3/8-Inch by 100-Feet Twisted Sisal Rope https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DKA3OGO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_BTdvyb4Z4Y984

I just used a hot glue gun and did 2 rows glue, 2 rows wrapped tight without glue, then just kept alternating. You'll need to buy 2 if you're wanting to completely redo the bottom.
