Answer: 
It depends on where you live and what you want to do with your shed. If you want to grow vegetables all winter, face it south, where it will get the most sun. If you want to start plants early, but you are in a hot environment (like Arizona), you may want to orient it to the north, or east, where it will get light, but not as much direct sunlight. Too much heat is a bad thing, too. The best thing to do Read More

I advise using the tar paper under the shingles. You will also need 5 10 foot pieces of drip edge. Get the white as it matches the mullion strips.

No, but you wouldn't want it to include shingles because buying them on your own allows you to match the shingles with the ones on your home.

I'm no astronomer, but I think if the panels face south, you'll get maximum number of sun exposure.

Answer: 
Since "solar" in this case is not to produce power, facing east would be the best as plants do best in that direction..

Answer: 
The siding is nice and sturdy, it is not vinyl it is wood. It is primed and you will need to paint it within a month or two at most. It is precut to fit exactly including overlap as needed to cover framing. The kit also includes facia 1x4's that cover all the edges. Since everything is cut exactly I think it's wise to use the kit as is, and indeed it is very nice. The siding would be something like this Read More

I found this kit to be excellent. Note you do need to buy roof drip edging to cover all edges of roof especially the front on either side of the windows. It is wise to buy the edging white so it looks nicer. I used the metal but I should have used the vinyl http://www.homedepot.com/p/Amerimax-Home-Products-3-in-x-10-ft-White-Vinyl-Drip-Edge-Flashing-T0401/202091130
Also you need to supply your own roofing paper and shingles. I also reinforced the floor kit (if you ordered that) by adding 5 extra 2x4 pressure treated floor joists so the floor is stronger. Their floor kit is all pressure treated except the wafer board flooring sheets. You may be setting it on concrete and won't need the floor kit, but I found it to be good. Wish it had pressure treated 4x8 plywood flooring instead of the wafer board but it is okay. Read Less

How long does it takes from ordering online until delivery at local store. My location does not allow curbside delivery from large trucks. Road is too difficult for them to negotiate and turn around. I'm in the "outback". Will pickup with trailer at store.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. The greenhouse arrived with all parts complete and intact. Despite the fact that I had never undertaken a similar project before, I was able to assemble it with few problems. I am very happy with this purchase. October 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love it I couldn't be happier with this shed, which I am using as a winter sunroom in the Denver metropolitan area (Colorado USA). I have insulated it, and on a sunny 30 degree (-1 C) day, I can count on the shed to reach over 70 degrees (21 C) by the warmth of the sun alone. My kit arrived in excellent condition with no broken or missing pieces. I built the floor kit and attached it to three 4”x6” skids that rest on a level bed of gravel. The kit is compatible with a variety of foundation styles. I chose skids in case I ever want to move it. I had never built anything more complex than bookshelves, but I the instructions with this kit were easy to follow (except for the door installation -- that part was a little obscure). My husband helped with a couple steps where heavy things needed to be lifted and aligned. All the rest I did myself. It was so satisfying when all the windows slipped into their slots on the first try! Some of the required roofing materials have to be purchased separately -- shingles, drip-edge flashing, roofing paper and roofing nails. I don't know why they aren't in the kit, but this does allow you to choose your colors for the flashing and shingles. It took 3 bundles of 3-tab shingles and 50 feet of flashing. I used only a fraction of a roll of inexpensive roofing paper. You also need some caulk to go around the windows. This kit was a treat for me as a novice builder. I learned to do something new and saved money by building it myself, and now I have a warm, sunny room to use in the winter for reading and other projects. January 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great wood shed! Great Product. My Wife is making it her writing room and she loves it. Had to hire someone smarter than me at assembly, but totally worth it November 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product The solar greenhouse shed was easy to build. Some of the material was warped butI was able to make it all work with some minor modifications. It will take two people at times to erect the shed. My wife was able to help me set trusses hold one end of the sideing as I did the nailing. July 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It is a dandy little greenhouse! My husband and a professional carpenter built the greenhouse in our back yard. We have already begun to store our tropical plants (which are potted) inside it. My job is to paint the exterior and I will get to that after the holidays. We are now installing a portable heater with a thermostat on it, but in the spring we will hire an electrician to hook up a more permanent type heater if needed. The windows face the winter sun here and should give them all plenty of light and possibly a lot of warmth on sunny winter days. December 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice solar shed I assembled it myself in about six days but only two of those days were a full day of work. I didn't have a helper so I framed it first and then added the siding after the framed walls were up otherwise the walls are too heavy for one person to lift. As other comments say, buy or rent a framing nailer and whenever possible substitute screws for nails. Be careful of the dimensions and keep the walls and trusses square - it will save you a lot of effort when you install the windows. I made some minor alterations along the way such as adding additional trim and a larger window on the side. I will probably add another window on the tall wall. All the wood supplied was in good condition and straight. Make sure to buy everything you need ahead of time including shingles, roofing paper, roofing nails, and drip edge. Also, I suggest buying your own floor materials - it is cheaper and you can make it stronger. I used 2 x 8 pressure treated lumber and plywood. One minor issue, after the order was shipped it was lost (stolen) in transit. Home Depot immediately had another one shipped. Caused a two week delay but not a big deal. People at Home Depot were very nice. Driver on the delivery truck says this happens more often then people think. April 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by i like my solar shed This is our second Handy Home Products shed, so we were familiar with the quality and process, and so far it meets my expectations for the extra storage, and other uses. Will need to order the shades because it faces west and gets very hot in there during the day...I'm a novice to the greenhouse process so scorched a few houseplants due to the heat/sun being too harsh. Will be interesting to see how it works this fall/winter. Has been a fun project so far. Shipping experience was kind of a nightmare -- the first trucking company was unable to deliver it (too big and too heavy for liftgate they said). HD quickly rerouted but it took several more days, and the driver was pleasant, but we still had to unload it one piece at at time. June 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The whole neighborhood loves it! I bought this shed for 2 purposes - to serve as a playhouse for my daughter and to use to use as a mini greenhouse. It has far exceeded my expectations! My daughter and her friends from all over the neighborhood love to play in it and it's a great place to store little things like her trike. So far I haven't used it as a greenhouse yet because it has been so popular as a playhouse. We have a small, uneven backyard and getting a swingset or other playground type stuff didn't work but this little shed is perfect because it doesn't take up a lot of space so it was easy to make level. The large windows are great for letting plenty of light in so the kids can see even when it starts to get dark. We not only painted it to look like the house but we also put it close by the house so it almost looks like an addition. I think we added a lot of value to our property by getting it. Well worth the money! I am so glad that we got it! January 7, 2008
