Hi. I'm Kevin Nadeau, and I work in product development at L.L.Bean. I'm here to help you set up your Woodlands Screen House.
1. Unpack your screen house. Select a clear site and unpack your screen house. Inside the storage sack, you'll find the screen house body and two smaller bags containing poles, stakes and guy lines. You'll also find waterproof instructions sewn right inside the storage sack, so they're always there when you need them.
2. Assemble your screen house. Unroll the screen house and spread out the body with the tan roof facing up. Assemble all of the poles. Slide one of the long, straight ridge poles through one of the mesh pole sleeves on the roof of the screen house. Repeat this step with the second ridgepole. Take one of the four corner poles and slide the elbow over the end of one of the ridge poles until it is fully seated. Next, take the opposite end of the corner pole, and insert its tip into the grommet of the screen house's corner stakeout loop. Repeat these steps with the opposite end of the ridgepole and the second set of corner poles. The screen house should now be standing. Attach the clips on the corners of the Screen House body to the corner poles. Stake the house using the four corner stakeout loops and the side stakeout beckets.
3. Install the optional floor (sold separately). Unfold the floor and locate the corner swivel clips, then place the floor inside the screen house and line up the clips to the O-rings, located at the corners of the screen house. Attach the clips to the O-rings.
4. Install the optional rain fly (sold separately). Unfold the rain fly and locate the L.L.Bean logo on the side panels. Rotate the fly so the logo corresponds with the side panels of the screen house. Drape the fly over the front of the house and pull it over. Once the fly is positioned correctly, reach under the fly at the corners and fasten the loops to the corner poles. Then attach the fly's corner swivel clips to the D-rings on the screen house's web stakeout loops. Adjust the tension as necessary.
5. Attach the optional high-wind guylines. If you're setting up camp in extremely windy conditions, we recommend you guy out your screen house. You'll find guy lines, with preattached tensioners, in the stake bag. Tie the end of the guy line without the slider to the loop of the fly. Next, pull the loop from the tensioner and insert the stake in the loop, then slide the tensioner along until it's tight.
Now you're ready to enjoy the outdoors in your Woodlands Screen House. This roomy screen house is designed to keep bugs at bay, so you can enjoy being outside all summer long.
