Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tomslick It looks good and pretty easy for me to put togeter, but the metal gauage is pretty thin
The store in my town does not stock it so I had to drive 35 plus miles one way to pick it up at another store because my store does not transfer this item to there store I was told there and it was high shipping to my house like $150.That being said I put this up over the week-end and it looks real nice and it went tighter pretty well by myself. The worst thing about this shed is it is made of thin metal that is about like a soda can thickness. If I lived where there was hale storms or snow I don't think it would last long. I don't know why the gauge is not list in there ad for it, my sister-in-law has one that is older , but the same size and brand , but heaver gauge. If I were going to recommend this it would not be for places were snow and servere weather.

We did not have this shed for 1 year! It was VERY hard to put together, and didn't make it through 1 winter with not much snow. We reinforced the roof, with still no results. When I called the company with my complaint, I was told that they would send another at the cost to us of well over $100.00 for shipping. Why on earth would we spend more on such a inferior product?! No thank you!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FederalMike Good value, one altered instruction
* Looks great assembled.
* Good price.
* When finished, it is very sturdy. (I didn't use the floor frame kit provided, so I did some jig-sawing and beefed up the ceiling with some of those unused pieces.)
* Lots of extra screws, bolts, washers and nuts - MUCH appreciated!
* Use an awl to line up holes or even punch your own holes occasionally. (I don't recommend punching holes except in those cases where you absolutely, positively cannot get all the holes lined up. It would throw off the remainder of the holes.)
* Step 6 should say to complete one corner at a time instead of leaving three corners dangling while you work on the fourth. We (my girlfriend helped me with this project!) couldn't get the individual corners to stay erect in the slight Colorado breezes - we didn't even want to let go of it for fear it would be bent out of shape - so we added on front and rear wall panels one corner at a time for bracing.
* I assembled all the pieces indoors on a flat floor - much easier than out in the yard. I did this as time allowed over the work-week, and everything was ready to assemble by Saturday morning.
* The base MUST be level and flat - I took extra care here and it was worth it.
* If you read the directions very carefully and follow them as written (except as noted above in my case with step 6), you should have no trouble assembling this shed in two days.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYKid Build a wood shed instead!
The sales guy I spoke to in the Garden Dept. was very honest. He said "don't do it" and showed me all of the shed kits returned by people who gave up and just returned the silly thing. I should have listened. I bought the $398 shed because I could not do a free pick up on the $318 8 x 10 shed I really wanted (not sure why?) and the more expensive model came with a free bonus floor kit. Floor kit turned out to be useless unless you want to build the shed directly on the ground (No thanks!). Ended up spending $100 more on materials and 2 days building an elevated wood floor. Once the floor was up, squared and leveled, the shed went up in 2-3 days mostly because of time spent figuring out the directions which were often tricky since the illustrations were poor at best. Sides went up quickly but roof was a bear! Holes often did not line up and very sketchy thin tape that tore and tangled easily was provided to weather-proof. Although when finished the shed appears to be quite sturdy, the shell itself is quite thin and easily dents if you lean on it too hard and has poorly fitting gable panels. In addition, it has lots of gaps that will no doubt allow rodents, insects and weather to get in. Not a particularly wise purchase. Find a good set of DIY blueprints for a wood shed and follow these--cost should be about the same but the finished product should be MUCH better protection for your property and an much better value.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vinny worst quality metal
To begin, I have to say I am an experienced contractor. It took myself and another guy 14 hours of labor to put the shed together. I had ground as level as can be, and parts of the shed still did not align. Not only were the instruction booklet and pictures horrible, it made the assembly of the shed. much more complicated. They also numbered the panels of shed on the outside, so now numbers are visible. The gauge of the metal of this shed was so thin, that drill bit punctured the walls of this shed. Unfortunately, after purchasing and assembling this shed, I found the exact model at Lowes for $80.00 less.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PrezMax Decent little shed for price
Took myself and my wife a day plus a few hours to setup. Unlike others, we had no issues w/ screws not lining up w/ holes, you just have to build it on a flat area - I did it in the garage and then got a hand moving it to it's base. My base wasn't perfectly square and that was a mistake.
We have two of these sheds... one came w/ a rental property we bought and the other we built. Both lasted at least 5 years until the same storm brought a tree down on one and 3 1/2 feet of snow crushed the other one.
We had zero rust at any time.
The only real complaint I have is that the doors don't slide well even if you clean the track regularly. When the doors pop off the track after a full day or yard work, it's frustrating.
I'm going out to buy replacements and will be buying the same shed again. The tree would have smashed nearly any shed, and leaving 3 1/2 feet of snow was my fault.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hamski hokey hokey hokey!!!
wow, this thing is unbelievable. the sheet metal is barely the thickness of an aluminum can. building it takes an ungodly amount of time. it began rusting after the first rain. i took it completely apart and built a wood shed from scratch in less time than it took me to build this. junk.
