Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MVdiyNovus This is a GREAT shed.....
This shed exceeded my expectations. The fit and finish is fantastic. The instructions were extremely accurate and easy to follow. The fact of the matter is if you follow the instructions to the letter, this shed goes up perfectly. I am impressed ! Additionally, the recommendations for parts not included (shingles, foundations, etc.) were spot on. Purchase the amounts recommended. Including painting the shed took about 2 1/2 days to assemble. I put together all of the walls, etc. and painted everything by myself in a day and a half. I had a friend come over and help me assemble the shed including putting shingles on the roof and it took us 6 hours.
Some advice.... Take the time to inventory and label all of the pieces. Some are marked better than others. Paint the trim and side panels before assembling the unit. This will save a lot of time and once the shed is built. Once the shed was up, I simply touched up the trim and nail marks. Print out the PDF version of the instruction found on the Home Depot website. Having an 8.5 X 11 version vs. the "pamphlet" that comes with the unit was handy.
Enjoy ! This is a great shed !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrSoundman7 More than adequate as an outdoor shed
Product packaging was sufficient and the kit was complete. A couple of the 2x3's were slightly warped, but still usable. Directions were clear and included illustrations that facilitated assembly greatly.Took about 7 hours to perform assembly, mostly done alone, but with help erecting walls and roofing. Doors were a little tricky, but came out OK. Primed surface is just that... primed. Painting definitely required. I don't expect any problems with this shed as it seems durable. Would have liked kit to have included some method of shelving, but I can take care of that later. Shipped on a flatbed and forklift carried to my assembly site.

I had a large pallet dropped off at my curb.
After having to disassemble the pallet to move the contents to my back yard, where I need to assemble the shed.
I discovered in the contents of boards and plywood that I played over a $1000.00 for that there were no numbers or letters to identify the pieces of 2x3s.
I am handy enough with a saw and tape measure to have made it myself. None of the pieces are numbered nothing is marked. Now I have a $1000.00 pile of sticks and pressboard in my backyard. It is up to me to measure each piece individually and put this shed together. If I have to figure out where each piece go, I could have bout the lumber and a better grade of plywood and had it done in a day.

No missing parts. Assembly of components is straight forward except the gable. Following the limited instructions the gables were not the same causing a sagging roof. Large gaps between the back walls and the roof panels. Wall studs are flimsly and hard to nail to the floor. The door hung with ease. Overall very poor construction. It seems the pros at Home Depo had the same issues with their display model. Same gaps ect. Home depot was veryhlpfull in obtaining this product. They went the extra mile.

The shed came in very promptly, earlier than advised which was a plus. Very easy to put together and received everything as promised. No damaged parts were received. We were able to put it together in 1 1/2 days. Would recommend this to anyone else. You don't have to be a carpenter to put it together

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MP Very nice shed!
My family and I put this shed up in 1 1/2 days. The directions were very clear and the structure is very strong and solid. We received alot of compliments! I recommend it to anyone.
It also provides alot of space. We put our two lawn mowers and will put our outdoor furniture in the shed too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyPappy Cumberland 10 Ft. X 8 Ft. Storage Building Kit
The shed was delivered on one (1) 700 lb. pallet that was about 8 ft. long, which made it very awkward for the delivery company to unload at a residence even with a pallet jack and a lift-gate on a 20 ft. delivery truck. At some point between the time it was palletized and the time it was delivered to my house, someone must have tried to lift one end with a standard 4 ft. forklift blade thus making it tip and forcing a forklift blade through the middle of the 4' x 8' plywood roof sheathing, which was the first part stacked on the pallet. Just above this hole in the sheathing was one of the 2" x 3" studs, which was also cracked. Rather than file a claim with the freight carrier or delivery service for unforeseen damages, I simply patched the sheathing with some sheet metal and ripped another 2x3 out of a spare 2 x 4 stud that I had.
I am an experienced framing contractor and felt extremely confident that I could assemble this fairly small storage shed by myself in a reasonable period of time, particularly after reading on the website that it could be assembled in as little as 2-1/2 hours. Installation took me about 16 hours counting the floor I constructed of treated 2x4's and 3/4" plywood. This also includes the time it took me to make sure I had all the parts checked-in, sorted and numbered, tar paper and drip caps installed. I still haven't installed the doors, shingles or painted the shed yet. But that will be done this next weekend.
If you have a crew of about 6 men experienced in constructing this brand of shed, I would agree that they may be able to assemble in 2-1/2 to 3 hours what I have done in 16 hrs.
Besides the inconvenience of the forklift damage and a couple of minor errors in the installation instructions I found everything to fit perfectly and I'm very satisfied with my investment.
Had I built a shed this size from scratch I would have spend a lot more of my time and money. So overall I would recommend this product to anyone in need of a fast, convenient, well built shed kit.
