Don't even consider purchasing this shed! It requires more than two people to erect, not as the instructions state that one person could erect it. It requires much more than two days, even in ideal conditions, to complete. I'm a retired Mechanical Engineer and these instructions are very difficult to follow and understand; virtually no predrilled hole aligns with another hole; whoever it was who designed and drew up these instruction, it they had worked for me I would have fired them. I secured this shed to a concrete patio base with the recommended anchoring kit and not two months after erecting the shed it was blown down, a total loss, in a 30 to 40 mph gust of wind. Don't waste your time or money on this inadequately designed structure, or any metal shed for that matter; invest in a wood one. You'll have something to show for your efforts and investment.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rex Not what it is advertised as
The galvanized shed is not a whole heck of a lot of galvanization, I would have expected to have a better dipping of the products framing and walls. I am going to have to paint the interior and exterior of the shed so that I do not have rust in the very near future. It came with some scratches inside the boxes. Although it seemed to go together well, I will admit I was a 1/16th of an inch out of square, so the doors latch hard and I have to wait for the next storm to find a small leak in the roof. I bought it instead of going from scratch to save time and what I thought was going to be money. It was neither. Now I also will admit that I am not a professional builder, but I have over my lifetime have remodeled over 2o houses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul pretty solid when constructed properly
A lot of work to construct but good instructions and all parts are marked. Does take two people for a lot of it. There are hundreds of screws that you must put plastic washers on, would save a lot of time if they came with the washers on, but probably a cost savings issue. There are no locking washers for the bolts, also would save hours in the construction but again probably a cost savings measure. The shed must be secured to the foundation properly and recommend a level cement slab. If constructed properly overall end product seems pretty solid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Modeler85 Great shed for the value.
This is a nice utility shed. The key is to have a very good, level, solid surface to mount the shed onto. I built a 10x12 wood base using 2x6's and OSB plywood sheeting. It was supported by concrete pillars on the corners and supported by concrete pads in various locations in the center. It comes in two boxes, one being the framing and the other the siding and roof. I sorted all the bolts, washers, etc. Preassembled most of what I could into sub assemblies. Read and follow the instructions carefully. Most holes did line up nicely. Some that didn't I just redrilled myself, very easy. Assembling the framing and roof requires two people. If your not mechanically inclined get some help. I spent about a 3-5 hrs over a 5 day period building the shed.
