I a floor incuded?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, there is a basic floor kit included. (You still have to buy pressure treated plywood) You can buy additional floor supports (comes in a kit) if you're going to be putting really heavy items like a riding lawn mower inside, but for just general storage the included floor frame with additional plywood is sufficient.

How flat and level does the ground have to be?

If I measure from corner to corner, my site is level but the ground is a little bumpy in between so not all parts of the base would be supported. I've got some landscaping fabric over this site and I'd rather not cut it out just to move dirt around if I don't have to.
Asked by: DeathValleyCarl
If the frames are not fully supported I it could cause you problems when you put weight on the floor. You could maybe try leveling with pea gravel.

Dakota 10 ft. x 8 ft. Steel Shed is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shed for the money I needed a shed to store hay and feed for horses that was compact. This shed definitely fit the bill. Installation wasn't too bad. The instructions are very well written and easy to follow. Luckily they give you lots of extra screws and bolts because a lot of them were unusable and ended up causing some frustration in the beginning but we realized that some of the tips had broken off either in manufacturing or transport and if there wasn't a tip it wouldn't screw into the hole. In the end it houses about 14 bales of hay with room for feed and supplements in the front. And since it's metal I bought a simple magnetic LED lamp that helps with feeding in the dark.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from Great Shed for an experienced builder Overall, I'm very happy with this shed. It is a large well made building for an affordable price. The directions were a little hard to read, but I didn't have any trouble putting it together because I just love putting things together in general. My main complaint about the instructions is that several steps that aren't specifically mentioned in the directions (like going back and putting a screw in every hole, the only screws mentioned on the instructions are the ones on the corners and the main anchor screws, yes common sense tells you to screw the rest in, but its not in the instructions.) It also took my husband and I two full days (probably 12-15 hours total) to put it together, which is longer than I was anticipating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent shed if done right It is a nice shed when done right for the price paid. We built it on an entirely leveled 5" thick concrete base and had no major problems with hole alignments. We are no pros, just your average homeowners with hundreds of do it yourself projects behind us over the years. Don't worry about someone here saying that the instructions weren't accurate. We had no problems at all with that, just go step by step and do exactly as shown on the pictures. I used a standard hand screwdriver for the entire thing, no electrical fancy drills. It took both people about a week, but we worked on and off and only in our free time between real work and such. After completion, if you have problems with the doors sliding difficultly, that means the building, especially the front needs to be shifted a little one way or the other, this is why it is not recommended to bolt the building down until you've completed building it. Once correct they slide like on butter. As for weatherproofing, we used the tape, then also there will be a lot of areas near the top and bottom of the wall panels where bugs could enter, we used an entire bottle of great stuff foam around all those large holes, from the inside of course, then trimmed excess if it expanded too much. We also filled all the gabled roof parts between the beams with the foam. Caulk was also used throughout the shed. All that did wonders. We are really thrilled with the end result, a very functional and good looking shed to loosen up the overfilled garage. Although, as to how the thin panels will take snow and such will remain to be seen. I may end up doing stuff to the roof panels to add extra support if necessary later on. Take care all and good luck with yours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Saving a few bucks is just not worth it. I needed multiple sheds and since one was for storage I decided to try out the Arrow Dakota based on price and the fact that for storage, a metal shed would be fine. Upon opening the one box that was extremely heavy we found all of the parts fairly clearly labeled. The one thing I appreciated most about this product was they gave you more than enough screws bolts nuts and washers so that as you were building in case you lost dropped whatever into the dirt one of these items you had plenty of backups. However, on the downside the instructions were overly complicated. The part labeling for all panels was on the exterior of the shed which kind a looks tacky to the Mrs. Now for the roof. If I can give you one piece of advice should you choose to buy this product… Assemble the entire roof on the ground. I REPEAT. Assemble the entire roof on the ground. Unless your arms or 3 to 4 feet long... you will save your self plenty of headaches by assembling the roof on the ground and then having a few friends help you lift

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Know prints Bought the Dakota shed and was told it would take about a day and a half to build. It took me and my 11 year old son 15 hours on a Saturday. The directions did not say to leave out certain rows of bolts for the ridge/wind caps to be installed later. This set us back a couple of hours and was particularly tough to go back and redo as you have to lean over the entire building to reach the screws - fortunately, I am 6'3' but it was still tough. That is the reason for the 3 star rating. Must be very meticulus in applying the weather stripping which we were. Used calk the next day on all joints and the building has not leaked once. Building is only as good as the time you put in it and in our case we love it. In BOLD LETTERS - prints should say to leave out the bolts mentioned before. Would have made a world of difference.
