Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JonA Great kit but get help if you're not experienced in building sheds
The end result was awesome. Except for one 2x4 that was a bit warped it all went together as expected. The instructions were spot on and all pieces were cut to spec but I am glad I had some help or it would have taken me a week to build. We had to make some slight modifications because the shed is designed to fit on a 10x12 floor/slab and my 11x13 slab already existed. I was surprised also that no roofing materials were included- that was an additional $300- but I understand the reasoning. Even my friends that helped said that it was a great little shed and was easy to put together.

I admire the guy who could put this shed together in 2 days. I do remodeling for a living so I am not new to building things. We put 4x3 windows in 3 sides of the building. I changed the wall studs to 16" OC spacing and double plated the top with new 2x4's that ran full length and width. I ended up about 1 box short of 8D or 6D galvanized nails. Part of the instructions call for 7D galvanized nails and are not in the kit, I used 8D considering this a "typo".
I don't know if I misread the instruction or the order of assembly of the front opening trim is out of order. Place the 4" wide siding pieces on before installing the 1x4 trim on either side of the door. It was also unclear to me that the "Keystone" gets installed in the center of the doorway and the 1x4 curved trim butts to it. It was more clear the second time I read the instructions.
I don't know how well the supplied glue works on the gussets of the trusses. I used construction adhesive to get a better bond of the rough side of the OSB to the 2x4 cords. I placed the gussets under the 2x4's in the "jig" I made and used an air nailer to attach them. This way the excess of the nail goes into the opposite gusset.
In the floor kit there was not enough supplied nails. I used an air nailer to build the structure and used the 16D screw nails to make up for the lack of 8D galvanized to secure the 3/4 deck. I nailed every 12" along each joist.
The front doors on my shed had to have the hangers moved. If I would have known that, I would have mounted the support for the track 1/4" lower. Since I nailed the track support in place, I wasn't going to move it. If you do the recommended screw the support to the building, it would be easy to move.
Had 2 extra pieces of eave trim and 2 support 2x4 - 22-1/2 tapered in the kit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grayhair1 What this storage shed will look like when if constructed as is.
If you picture this building as it is really sold, and not as it is pictured, then picture it without light fixtures on the front, without windows, flooring or roofing shingles. It then becomes a basic storage building. The pocket door is very nice as is the quality materials provided. You can purchase the light fixtures, windows, floor system materials and the roofing materials for an additional $700-$800. Just be sure to add this amount on to the total cost of the building.

just finished this project up and turned out great. follow instructions and you won't have any problems. I left the 1x4 trim boards off because I had to vinyl side the shed to match our house (which really makes it look good) I add the octegon window which also dress' it up. shed was deliverd as promised to the curb with all needed parts and pieces.

This shed went up in two days total...my husband had no problem putting it together...and he did it alone. I like the way it looks, but we will probably side it in the spring to match the house. I love it though!
