Overall this was a good purchase. When the shed is not fully assembled the walls seem flimsy. However once they are all together it is very sturdy. Sturdy enough for two grown men to be on the roof while nailing down the shingles. Note that you have to buy a lot of extra stuff (shingles, tar paper, drip edge, paint, nails, etc.) to actually build the shed. For me after painting the total cost was over $1,100. Note also that it is framed with 2x3s instead of 2x4s. Easy enough to add shelving. The hardest part of the entire project was ensuring the shed was on level ground. I assembled the four walls in half a day and it took myself and another guy a full 12 hours to create a level foundation and put it up (including shingles, not including paint & shelves).
One last thing, I needed to rent a truck to get it to my house, It is 4 x 8 x 2 and its solid lumber. Either get it delivered or rent a flatbed for $20.

The design of this shed is very well thought out. All of the pre-cut parts were packed into a 2x4x8 foot pallet. Everything was there. It took about 25 hours of my time to put the shed together. The hardest part was getting a level surface for the flooring. I would strongly recommend the added floor joists if you plan to store a lawn tractor. I used 3/4 inch treated plywood for the decking. Again, because of how I plan to use it. Also, get your own 2.5 & 3 inch screws. The provided screws tended to break if you were not careful.
The instructions were detailed and very helpful to me. But, READ them carefully! There were some nominal variances in the wood, so measure everything and make sure all of the walls are square and plumb.
Use a high quality exterior primer for all the exposed bare wood. It will save you down the road.
Because I liked this shed layout, I am putting up a second one. But, due to city rules, it will be on a slab.

About 30% of the wood was either broken, warped or cracked. I read in several comments that they would replace this for you, however when you are in the middle of assembling shed it does not make sense to stop and wait for new pieces to be delivered. The screws they included are cheap Chinese made because the heads broke when tightening. Also when they packaged this together they should have placed all of the wood needed to start on top instead of pieces in the middle and on bottom. I did not have the space to unpack, layout and inspect. It did assemble very well with just one person, only needed a second person to hold the walls in place while I screwed them down to the foundation. Used all deck screws instead of nails.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NotHappy Poor Quality Wood and Not Good Design
Materials included were not good. Some wood was split as you often find at Home Depot. I am a fairly good carpenter and could not get the floor square, which threw off the walls and roof. The instructions are setup for you to fail, so that you pay highly for the pro installation. If you do decide to purchase and install on your own, I would recommend you build the floor frame, but not nail in the flooring (which you also have to buy separately). Once floor frame is built, build the walls and attach to floor frame and you can better square the building, then lay the floor panels last. Good luck with this kit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JRM a total waste of money
This is very poorly designed and you are given very low quality wood; cheap chip board, 2x3's rather than 2x4's and a couple of the 2x3's were severely bowed. Once I unpacked all of the wood and read the assembly directions I wanted to return it because I knew it was very low quality. I had to buy a lot of extra wood to strengthen their poorly thought out design. Once I purchased the extra wood, wood for the floor, roofing felt and shingles, paint and the additional nails that I would need I had spent more money than if I would have purchased an already assembled shed and just had it delivered. This was a total waste of money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CoreyKohler Very, very happy with this product!
Do your homework on this as the kit does not include shingles, felt paper, nails/screws, caulk or the OSB boards for the floor. The building is very sturdy once built except for the doorway wall. I added a couple 2 x 4s around the door to strengthen the doorway and built a shelf in the back which really made the entire building more sturdy. I have about $1300 wrapped up into it and built it myself with the help of a couple of friends. There were no missing parts in the kit and it came with directions. This was about half the price of anything else I looked at. Good purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AHankins great shed!!
We've enjoyed building our shed as a family, it's been a fun experience! Wish the reviews online would have mentioned ALL the items needed to build it! So here is the list: 2 boxes of 3" nails, 4 boxes of 2" nails,5 bundles of 3 slab roofing, at least 2lbs of galvanized roofing nails (1 to 1 1/4 inch), wood glue, 4 full sheets of flooring wood. The next few items are recommended but not essential: about 50 feet of drip edge, roofing felt (enough to cover 112 square feet), a quart of trim paint, 2 gallons paint for siding. As always, read instructions CAREFULLY, and do inventory on ALL items to ensure all pieces came in your kit. We LOVE this shed and have already recommended it to many others!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Okay, but had issues
My biggest problem with his kit was the quality of the lumber included. I continuously ran into warp boards that I had to figure out how to straighten or compensate for. It became very frustrating. I would make a little progress and then run into another bad board. The quality of the screws included was poor. I had to pre drill the hole before putting in the screw to keep from rounding out the head of the screw. I finally just went out and bought higher quality screws. Problem solved. Overall there was not a problem that could not be solved and once the building was up it looked pretty good. Being this building will be a large chicken coop when it is finished I added support to the walls to support the roosts. I would only recommend this product to someone that had the expertise to overcome the problems presented by the poor quality lumber.
