Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by T2Much caution reading comprehension skill required
Great value for the money. Fits cozy in our fence corner where it is safe from wind. Easy to put together IF you have reading comprehension skills. MUST have 2 people to assemble. The engineering as assembled is strong enough. But, until it is completely assembled it is fragile. if any piece is bent or deformed at all it will be a problem. Inspect carefully on delivery. If there is ANY sign of damage send it back for a replacement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by butch1 good purchase
the shed was a little difficult to put together, but it is light weight and it will definitely do the job , where it is a tool shed wish it would have had shelves or hangers for the tools and somewhere to attach them. but over all it is a good shed and works wonderful where we wanted to put it

The Sidemate Vinyl shed is doing an excellent job in storing our overflow garage items. It does take 2 people to put it together. One reading the instructions and providing the appropriate pieces while the other person assembles the shed. The shed stability was a challenge until all hardware was attached. It is the perfect design for our small area. It blends well with our garage color and is waterproof. Inside, we added a wooden table for more storage capability. Very Satisfied with this Sidemate Shed!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MechEngr Big Disappointment
Holes in the plastic rarely ever lined up with the holes in the steel parts; fit-ups were very difficult and required much force.
Poor fit of blocks CCF into the corners of posts CCS meant that the screws S2 were far too short to reach the steel inner post.
Molded plastic blocks did not fit the shaped sections well at all.
Markings on the parts came off many pieces in early handling, were very difficult to see on many others. Poorly done!
The internal steel bracing strips are far too flexible to be able to add the needed stiffness to the wall panels. I was only able to complete the walls by adding additional wooden braces.
The "foundation kit" that is included is a joke. It is such light gage sheet metal that it would never support a floor load placed upon it. It might be useful as a jig for placing into a poured concrete base (which I did not do).
The instructions consist almost entirely of "wordless wonder" diagrams -- the sort where you say, "I wonder that that was supposed to mean?" Urgently needs supplemental notes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SR It's OK
The shed is OK. The instructions are pictures, which requires a bit more attention to detail to ensure parts are put together correctly. Many of the holes did not line up, making assembly rather difficult at times. Also, many of the part labels were difficult to read.
That being said, it provides sufficient storage for my yard tools.

Never, ever again. Next time I will build from scratch. This had an insane amount of pieces. Wont do it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bigyeags Very pleased, now that it is built.
Laughing hard at some of these reviews. No this shed is not really easy to put together. I did not have the problems some people had, though. I built a foundation out of pressure treated 2x4s and 3\4" pressure treated plywood and made sure it was level. I made sure my u-channel base was square and measured right. After that it was just a matter of assembling the hundred or so pieces using the several hundred fasteners. Take the time to really study the directions. Now that it is finished (4-5 hours), it seems really sturdy and should be very waterproof.
