Answer: 
This is correct. The homeowner purchases shingles locally. This allows you to match the style of your home. Also paint is sold separately. Because you are responsible for framing the walls prior to applying siding you can frame in any window type you desire. Home Depot has a large selection to choose from.

The description says that it does not include a floor. Does that mean it does not have the plywood flooring, or does it mean there is no floor framing wood included at all?

Answer: 
There is no flooring at all. This allows you to place on a cement slab or build your own system per your needs. If you want a floor please see model # newcastle_1612df

Answer: 
Hello Weya and thank you for your question.
You may be able to add some supports to create a “loft space” for overhead storage; however, these components would not be included in the shed kit. It would be best to contact the manufacturer at 1-800-245-1577 to determine what, if any, modifications are needed to adapt the space to create a storage loft.
Best wishes on your project.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really nice looking shed, Excellent materials, well thought out design After my 50 year old shed had been swamped with water the last couple years due a neighbors landscaping and garage being built I was on the hunt online for a well built, good size replacement shed. I looked at the steel and plastic sheds but I knew I wanted something more substantial. It had to be under 200 square feet to stay within code and this shed fit the bill. After careful research and reading many reviews from this and other manufacturers sheds I determined this to be the best one for the size, design, and product craftsmanship. After ripping down the old shed, re-leveling the backyard with 17 yards of dirt, installing new sod and having a contractor pour a 15'9" x 12' concrete pad I was ready to build this shed. All of the wood except for the T11 siding is cut and shipped from Sweden (this wood was really nice, top grade, and not a warped piece in the bunch.) Unfortunately I had to build 9 trusses (they don't come prebuilt)--if I can do it, you can too! I first had to build one of my 12' sidewalls on the cement pad so that I could build a form on top of it in order to construct all of my trusses to the exact same dimensions. I then built all of the other walls. The shed is designed for studs at 24" on center but I built the shed with the studs 16" oc to give it even more strength to withstand some of the bad weather we sometimes get here in Michigan, but I was told that was not necessary because the shed is built to withstand bad weather conditions. Going 16" oc did cause more work, planning and little bit more money. Was it worth it? It's debatable. I had two other people help me erect and connect the walls with screws and nails--be very meticulous at this point to make sure everything fits accordingly. Be meticulous through the whole process, read the directions thoroughly during each step, including all of the helpful sidebars and call the support line when you get stuck, they're available 7 days a week, and Richard and Bill are very helpful. I primed all of my trim boards (there's a lot of them) inside the house due to cold weather, let dry, and then nailed them on in the order the instructions told me to. To make life easier my brother loaned me his scaffolding which made installing the trusses and roof a lot easier but it can still be done with a few step ladders and 3 people. The roof took me a couple of days with the sheathing, drip edge, and shingles--it's been about 30 years since I "helped" install the roof on my home--thank goodness for my brother and Youtube to help make the process go somewhat smoothly. The roof sheathing comes precut and is designed to leave a 1" gap at the top of the roof on each side so that a ridge vent can be installed--which is great for ventilation. I then installed the doors, and I do recommend having another person help in this process (they are heavy), and just tack the trim up until your doors are in their final position (I used a finish nailer for all of the trim, but I hand nailed everything else and used my drill for screwing when needed.) The doors are exceptional and very well built--i'm really glad those were prebuilt. It was Christmas Eve day and the snow started to come down when I was finishing with the last door and setting the final trim piece in place--it was official, I beat the snow!--we got eight inches in the next 24 hours. I stood back and looked at my shed with a sigh of relief for almost 30 minutes. I now have a physical testament that I can actually build something, I even think Bob Villa would be pleased with my work. Overall I am impressed with this product, however, it took a bit more time than I had planned on to complete this project. Also, I had to purchase moisture barrier to go between the cement floor and walls (sill plates), cement wall anchors, paint, primer, 5 lbs roofing nails, shingles, tar paper, staples, ridge vent, door latch (the one supplied was too easy for a thief to unscrew), and a door lock. I didn't buy any windows right now due to budget constraints but I do plan on putting in a vinyl window in the front with a work bench behind it inside the shed. The inside is really big and spacious. I wish spring was already here so I could paint it, and plant a couple of spruce trees and other landscaping on the sides of it. It's going to look really nice, i'm happy and i'm sure the neighbors will be too. January 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great shed It went together quite easily. We didn't recurve all of the correct sized nails. But other than that it was perfect. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice Shed This shed is very nice. Delivered quickly in two different packages by two different carriers (Home Depot for local items, and another carrier for the rest). I ended up purchasing other studs to raise the building up by 12" as the assembled building is only ~ 6 feet. I did find the customer support exceptional, as I did call them about raising the building and making the floor 12' X 16'. Directions call for 12' X 15' 9" floor. Richard was extremely helpful and was able to answer any question I had about the shed. Do check your local building codes before purchase, as I had to have a foundation and meet several requirements to build. I asked after I purchased, so somethings had to be modified to meet my local city code. (Foundation for shed, Wall Stud centers 16", Hangers for Trusses). I am very satisified with the shed.
