Customer Questions & Answers

Does this kit include the roof shingles

Asked by: Anonymous
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 would be to talk to gardeners in your area, or try the professionals at garden shops in your area, and see what they think.

Should the solar panels face a particular direction?

Should the solar panels face a particular direction (east vs. west) for maximum sunlight? I'm trying to figure out which side i should have the door installed.
Asked by: Lola
I'm no astronomer, but I think if the panels face south, you'll get maximum number of sun exposure.

what is the exterior siding? Is it a cheap looking vinyl surface? If so, can one substitute real wood?

Asked by: carpenter
The Phoenix siding is all wood based

Shipping time

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.
Asked by: AllstarPT
Yes, this can be picked up at a local Home Depot.

Phoenix 10 ft. x 8 ft. Solar Storage Building is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shed I purchased this green house shed several weeks ago. It took about two weeks to arrive and 2 days for someone we hired to build it. Had some trouble with the door fitting in the frame due to the board that was in per the instructions. I really wish it was offered in a 10x10. 8x10 is pretty small. I purchased this for my cats that have bathroom issues in the house so this is a great cat house. Putting in a cat door this week.i was able to put a resin love seat, 2 chairs and round coffee table as well as 2 tall cat trees so they have places to sleep. I have a portable heater in there that heats the shed up nicely. A little worried about the heat in the summer but I will purchase the Shades for the windows. I've insulated the walls and put plastic ove the insulation for now. Will drywall soon. You are basically purchasing a shell. You need to spend additional for: Roof shingles and other necessities you'll need for the roof Insulation and drywall if you choose I purchased a 9x12 one sheet lenoleum floor and cut to fit. Looks great and easy to fit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hired a contractor to put the kit together. ... I hired a contractor to put the kit together. There were a couple of warped 2x4 we had to replace. Other than that, the kit was complete. It took four full days from start to finish, one full day to build and level the foundation. We used screws instead of nails. Quite pleased overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shed/greenhouse! I just finished putting together this shed/greenhouse this weekend and I'm very impressed. It's solid, very roomy, and goes together easily. One nice feature is that the rafters all have a 1/2" hole in their gussets for you to run a copper or plastic pipe through to hang plants (the pipe isn't included.) You can't really add this after it's built, so pick up eight feet of 1/2" pipe with the kit. I only ran into a couple of small problems: The 2x6 short wall header was 1/2 inch shorter then it was suppose to be and one of the joist spacers was cut crooked. Luckily I had some spare wood pieces laying around to fix that. Also, the description doesn't mention that you need to order your own drip edges - you need 60 feet worth (6 pcs.) You need to install the drip edges before installing the windows so don't put off buying the drip edges until you get the rest of the roofing material like I did - order them along with the kit. Some other tips: The end walls (the 10' sides) have their footer plates split in two pieces (page 11 of the instructions.) The join of these two pieces doesn't meet on a stud and thus are pretty flimsy until you get the wall nailed to the sill plate. Use a scrap piece of 1x4 or 2x4 to bridge the footer to help stiffen it up. The instructions mention that glue is optional on the rafter gussets - in my option it should be mandatory. It will easily double the strength of those trusses. One tube of liquid nails or an 8 oz bottle of wood glue is all you need. If you want to glue all of the paneling to the studs for additional strength like I did, plan on getting a total of 5 tubes of liquid nail adhesive. The roof trusses are only tied to the tall wall with two screws. If you live in a high wind area pick up three rafter ties (search for "H2.5 Hurricane Tie") for 30 cents each for extra piece of mind. Grab an extra 2 pieces per 4' extension you buy as well. Lastly, do your elbow a favor and rent a nail gun and air compressor. Hammering close to 800 nails by hand is very tiring. A box of 500 2" galvanized ring shank nails, and 500 galvanized 3 1/2" nails is what you'll need. This kit is delivered in a 4' x 8' x 2' bundle on a skid and weighs about 1000 lbs. I also ordered the 4' windowed extension with it and they strapped it to the top of the main kit. That added 4' x 8' x 6" of height and weighed about 200 lbs more. Hope all this information helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quite satisfied with product I needed additional storage in my yard. I quickly filled up my 8'x6' garden shed and needed something extra. I decided I wanted a greenhouse but it wasn't practical for all my needs. The solar shed met both my need for storage and my desire for a greenhouse. I hired someone to build it and was told the directions were clear and concise. I'm quite pleased overall with the quality of the shed, my only dilemma is what color to paint it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This room was generally O.K. the big problem we encountered was that only two of our rafters were cut properly we have to modify and rig it to get them to work. When adding on the optional extension pieces you need to reinforce the walls toe nailing together isn't enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used a professional carpenter to put this shed up. He insulated and sheetrocked it, making it sound and moisure proof. I had a professional carpenter build this shed for me. After alot of caulking, he insulated it and sheetrocked it to make it sound and moisure proof. I love It.!! He also put a foundation under with pier blocks. We also switched out the door, since the one that comes with the kit was a bit flimsy. This shed is a great deal if you want a nice looking shed, but you need to know what you are doing, the instructions are not always complete. But it looks great in my backyard, is the right size and very attractive and comfy. It arrived on time, all materials there except for three boards that were damaged. Customer Service called and had me send in the receipts for the replacements. Again, I am very happy! I ordered it online, asked for a 'promo code' and got 10% off. Used the savings to buy the blinds that go with it. Delivery to my door was free! I did alot of research before buying it and this was the best for price, look, and assembly.
