Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cav Great little shed, but definitely not 8x6 ft.
This is a great little shed for the amount we paid for it, but I was disappointed that it was definitely not the dimensions that were advertised. It came out to 7'11' x 5'3". Now, 7'11" I can handle, that's pretty close. But 5'3"? That's nearly a foot shorter on one end than it was supposed to be. If my spouse and I hadn't spend 12 hours putting it together already, I'd probably take it back. Really frustrating, and some of the things we were going to put in it aren't going to fit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki Great little shed!
This is a great little shed for the money! Very easy to put together. I put it together by myself. My ground was far from level so I had to get a little creative with concrete blocks. The directions were very simple with pictures and 'parts needed' for each section clearly stated. All parts are numbered. Lots of extra screws, nuts, bolts & washers too. There are some nice grooves inside the wall for you to run the cable to anchor it and building the floor was also pretty easy. The frame is included.
My shed has been up for some months now and been thru some windy, wet & snowy weather with no problems at all. I highly recommend it for anyone that needs that little bit of extra space.

Terrible product. Impossible to construct by one person. Flimsy. Some of the panels were not numbered so took a guess. I got suckered by the price figuring I only need a small storage shed. To keep cost down they give you screws when hex heads as vastly superior. But hey, it was only $210. Never again. Maybe the Resin units are easier to construct. This one has been utterly awful to construct and figure out. I'm still not done with it.

Foranyone getting this shed make sure you readthe instructions Most of it can be done by one person you will need 2 people for the roofthe inside braces and doors it is simple to put togeathertogeather. If you are not mechanicly inclined then to avoid frustration get someone to put this togeather for you. I would recommend this shed it is a good price and the floor parts area bonus for thisshed elsewhere you would pay more without the floor foundation.

It's like a paper box - you have to be very careful when you install it
Steel plates thickness are Very very thin -the screw can't hold it
Leeks from every where with a heavy rain
A 4 years old kid can kick the door and smash it
Keep it out of reach of children.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gman arrow Newport 8ft x 6ft steel shed
received all parts needed. instructions were 97% good. employees helped load my purchase in my truck and didn't notice the pallet strap came off behind my truck allowing me to back over the metal fastener puncturing the tire and wrapping the banding around my axle and brake line. Discount Tire repaired my flat with no charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DudeAbiding365 Don't let the 1-star reviews fool you...
So we needed a shed. We have a concrete slab patio, 360 sq. ft. We have a little area near the back, that measures 8'6" x 6'4". This shed would fit perfectly. Not to mention the cost. A cost which could not be beat. Literally, we tried. So we thought we found our shed. A wise thing to do when purchasing on line is to always look at some reviews, especially bad reviews.
The common theme amongst the bad reviews was the difficulty that ensues when one attempts to install this shed. That the directions are poor. That the holes don't line up. That the wind can rip 'er right in half! I read every one- and two-star review, and I was not deterred. This shed would be the one.
A warning, this b is heavy! You will need 2+ people and/or a large dolly/crane to get it from your vehicle to your place of assembly.
I spent the next day doing an inventory of the million screws, bolts, nuts, and other parts this shed comes with. I wanted to know her intimately, so to know what I was getting myself into. I also read all of the instructions, to get a sense of what was in store.
I spent a Wednesday building the base. By myself, this took a couple hours. I work slow and am diligent, so you could probably be done in less time. I also drink beer. Thursday was dedicated to the walls. My brother came by, and a second set of hands is invaluable. There are times when you are on one side of a panel and you just need someone holding your nuts while you tighten your bolts into them. Frame and walls took me 6 hours. Friday got the roof constructed, and I was able to do that almost all on my own (my wife had to help hold my nuts a couple of times). This was probably 2 or 3 hours. Saturday was the door, which took no time at all (less than an hour).
Now, keep in mind that I build this shed within the dimensions which it lives. This gave me less than 6" along the side walls and rear of the shed. 90% of construction I completed on my own, with no power tools (although I did have to buy a stubby phillips head). If you have 2+ people and are able to construct this little s.o.b. with at least a foot of clearance on the walls, you will be just fine.
Oh, right, one thing that was irksome. One part did not assemble as the instructions said it would. After each step, the instructions say what the dimensions of your constructed piece should be. One bar was 3" longer than it should've been, so I made it the length the instructions said it should be. When it came time to install that piece on the shed, the holes didn't line up (but the piece was the right length, which makes me think the instructions were off). I reconciled this by grabbing my drill and just drilling a small hole where there was none. It worked like a hot dam(n).
In summation, if you want a cheap shed that is 8' x 6' and you want to spend a very little amount of money, then you should buy this one. You need a little DIY skills and the ability to read and comprehend basic instructions. Be warned that while it is a "steel shed" the steel is of the poorest quality and you will be able to bend components of the frame by sneezing on them. But if all you need is protection from the elements, then this shed is the one for you! Unless the aforementioned elements are snow. Then don't buy this shed. It would likely collapse after a heavy snowfall, possibly killing every man, woman, and child inside.
