I just finished building mine. It took me between 2 and 3 hours, with a cheap soldering iron and no soldering done since middle school (~15 years ago).
I was quite afraid I would mess up the soldering at least on one switch, and was happily suprised it didn't happen, so I wanted to tell newbies in soldering who, like me, might stress a little bit before building their ergodox that by following the build guide, everything goes smoothly :)
Other than that, I'm very happy with the keyboard, I did a little typing test, and I think I'll spend my morning tomorrow playing with the online configurator to tweak the default layout to my liking. This keyboard was definitely worth the wait!

...yeah, I have thought so, when I thought it is the only option to buy an Ergodox kit, but honestly - in that time and hassle it took, I would source the components myself and built the damned thing three times over. And additionally, there are kit alternatives -very fast and efficient to deal with.
EDIT: ...and I think that this will do, as for me venting off my frustration w/ Massflop... eerm, Massdrop.
