Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tburg128 Very nice shed
This was a fun project to build. I was missing a few parts but the local Home Depot took care of ordering the parts for me. Instructions call for 4x4 skids if you build it that way but I decided to use 4x6's. I didn't really like the metal corners so I ripped some trim boards to use on the corners. The only problem I had with the shed was that the two back wall pieces of siding weren't the same thickness. One piece was about a 1/32 to 1/16 thicker than the other one but it's in the back and doesn't show.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harry Perfect for what we wanted...
The perfect "garden shed"...with additional storage in the loft above and under the work bench on the back wall. (We also mounted an outside work bench for messier potting on the left side wall.) Relatively easy to assemble - but not in one day, as your video tutorial says.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ShedOwner Just a tip
A number of other reviews commented on warped boards. I took the time to drive to the 4 Home Depots in my area until I found a store that stored them in an overhead covered area and away from prevailing winds. Even though the shed is wrapped in plastic, the plastic gets damaged via handling. With no chance of rain or snow accumulation on the shed while it sat waiting to be purchased, mine had only a single board that showed any significant warping. I recommended this shed but only if you have realistic expectations about the quality of the materials. The door in particular seems like it is going to be particularly susceptible to water damage over time. I didn't change the color much from the primer color so ended up overbuying a gallon of paint based on the directions. Boxes of screws were not included in the kit despite the directions.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BJ Majestic is a "Cluster" and not what a true carpenter would build!
I realize that it was built on the cheap...so we wouldn't have to pay more for it. The floor and side walls (except for the use of 4'+8' boards instead of 12' for the horizontals) seemed steady; the lack of full frames for the front and rear were ridiculous! The whole thing relied on the inner shelves and "loft" to hold it together. The building steps and recommendations lacked forethought...not recommending the use of caulk on ALL the wall seams when the wallboards are not finished on the edges is negligent...WE sealed them anyway! The "batten" strips are not sealed on the edges. When using cms for measurements as well as inches WOULD have worked, if written correctly...it is "1'point'3" (1.3) NOT "1'comma'3" (1,3). It was extremely difficult to put the roof up while the loft boards were in place. It would have been easier with the frame only!
The recommendations for what to buy in addition to the items shipped...NEVER mentioned the 12' treated 4x4s.
I don't know HOW the pros do it when people pay to have Home Dept build it instead of relying on my husband's carpentry skills.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Papajohn2140 Great value
The storage shed was easy to assemble parts fiit the way they should, the only draw back was the roof rafters were a little warped. Overall a great value and I am completely satisfied.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CJOUTBACK Love this shed.
The finished product is awesome. There was only one warped board we couldn't use. I did buy 2 12 ft 2x4 treated boards for the bottom side walls. I bought extra screws to attach the siding. I special ordered the red metal roof materials. Everything was in the kit, including the nails and screws. I hired 2 guys to build it. The finished product with all the extras and the labor came to apx. $1800.00

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by woody1 You get what you pay for
It's cheap and the quality of the 2x3 wood shows. If you like twisted wood, you will LOVE this shed. The 2x3's are horrendous. They are stamped select or premium, well my definition of select and premium must vary dramatically from the manufacturer. On more than one occasion we had to use a pipe wrench to twist the 2x3 while screwing it together. Using nails would be comical, this shed needs to be screwed together, nails are completely useless as the twisted wood will pull the nails out within a few days.
Just understand what you are in for, if you own a paint brush and a hammer this shed is NOT for YOU. You must be able to adapt and fix all the small nonsense that pops up. Using split seams on the frame is a JOKE

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trom Majestic 8 ft. x 12 ft. Wood Storage Shed
The only real minus was when I got the flooring. On the plastic wrapping was a list of items I needed to purchase. One was flooring that was T&G. Problem was with 3 sheets of T&G you get a length of 142 1/2 inches instead of the required 144 inches. It was workable but a pain adding 1 1/2 inches of the same thickness. Instructions were excellent.
