Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bucky If this is your first day building, keep looking.
As others have stated the frame is very strong. That being said, it goes together very slowly. I did most of this project myself and found it is very time consuming. I did make a few mistakes due to the lack of written instructions. However they were all found within one or two steps so its not like I had to backtrack much to fix any issues. Overall, the building looks nice and has a very strong frame. The doors and hardware are a little cheap for my liking, but good for the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rudypalooza7700 Really tests your patience
I have mixed feelings about this shed. On one hand it has one of the strongest frames I've ever assembled. On the other hand alignment of the frame and the foundation and lining up the sheets of roof and wall panels with the holes pre-drilled on the frame caused some serious headaches.
I had to do a lot of bending and pushing and pulling to get the holes to line up. Don't even attempt to try putting this up yourself. You need at least one other person helping to hold things up while you screw them into place. They provide you with plenty of extra screws and nuts and bolts, which is good because they are so tiny you tend to drop and lose them a lot.
The side access door is pretty narrow and If I was wearing my tool belt I had to walk in sideways in order to fit. The roof has this spine that runs down the middle and it is really hard to install even if you have someone to help. I have to admit that once it is fully assembled it looks spot on like the picture in the brochure. The instructions are 99% pictures and 1% written instruction so be very certain you count every hole you see drawn and use a magnifying glass to verify if you are installing something the right side up.
If enjoy a challenge and you have a lot of patience this shed is well worth it.

Purchase came sooner than expected which was great, curb side delivery is good, just make sure you have few buff people to carry it to the location you will assemble it at. Building comes in 4 individual boxes, and each box is super heavy. Upon opening the boxes, we found few parts that were damaged, and it looked like they were packed damaged, because boxes were all in great condition, the damage was not huge, but nevertheless. Assembling took longer than we thought it would, there are many small pieces that need assembling, mostly for the frame, making building very strong, but difficult to put together. Instructions are not very clear, and on several occasions we noticed that the sides in the photos were inverse of what they should have been, because they give you the option to assemble the side door on either side of the building, but then don't clarify in each step if those are assembly steps for left side side door, or right side side door. Also, roof assembly is difficult as you have to put few panels together before placing the middle part on the top, making it super hard to reach, you are practically going to be standing on the top of the ladder and reaching over two panels and placing the screws in while balancing most of your body over already assembled panels hoping you don't lean on and bend them, or worse hoping you don't fall and break your neck- I was thinking it would have been great having a few NBA players on hand, just because of the distance. And, yes make sure your slab is perfect square because we did and we still had to adjust a bit so every piece would fit perfectly, it will make your job easier. Overall, it is good deal for the money.
