Answer: 
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.

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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Well if you put the seal/tape the right way, yes.
Also you might want to buy the floor foundation and maybe cut some plywood and lay on top off it to prevent things getting wet from the bottom up.

Dakota 10 ft. x 8 ft. Steel Shed is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arrow Dakota shed Very nice design and well detailed instructions. Definitely need two people for insulation.
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than paying storage fees After years of paying $100.00 per month to store items at the local self-storage facility I decided it would be more cost efficient to buy a shed and store on my property. The Dakota was the perfect solution. With ample storage and the gabled roof I have plenty of room. Installation is fairly straight forward provided you follow the instructions to the letter. As a matter of fact, I built 80% of it without the need for assistance until I got to the roof panels. Having someone inside to hold the nuts while adding the screws from above will be required. As an added and unexpected bonus, this kit comes with the floor braces. The only added cost was two 4x8 sheets of plywood for flooring. I would highly recommend this product to a friend.

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 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 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 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.
