Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rando Great looking shed
Great looking shed. I paid a buddy a few hundred buks to help me put this together and it took us a week, well, we cud only work half days cuz it was 106 degrees here in Central California. I used 4/4 pressure treated lumber for foundation and 3/4" plywood flooring.I also used steel panel roofing to match my patio.
And a nice 2/2' window.I also ordered extra lumber for shelving. I thought it was really cheesy the way they used 2/3 studs and spaced so far apart, but once screwed together it is very strong. I used to be a finish carpenter and it was fun to put the nail bags back on and build this shed, just happy I'm not doing it to make a living anymore. I alsogot a gallon of white primer and will whitewash the interior.
It was a 100 buks cheaper when I bought it last month and with all the extras and labor it cost about $1,200 I think I'll use it as my work shop and man cave.

This Princeton 10' x 10' storage shed was easy to assemble and a great investment.
I needed a place to both store and practice with my drums. I had a contractor pour a concrete slab to mount the shed on. Assembly was a breeze after that. I also installed sheet rock and insulated the side walls and ceiling and installed a 22" x 22" sliding glass window on the back wall. A neighbor wired it and it now features air conditioning and overhead lighting... all purchased from Home Depot too.
I highly recommend this shed to anyone who is in the market for a storage shed. The two wide doors make loading and unloading my equipment a breeze.We have a lot of strong winds here in West Texas and that hasn't caused a problem. Everyone who has seen it, raves about it.
I gave it 5 Stars on both Quality and value.

I am a back-yard non pro builder and have built 25 x 50 garagew/ radiant floor heat. I usually overbuild because I am in maintenece.The design on this shed confused me at first --,it seemed short cut. My wife and I built this on a pre-existing slab, which really made construction easy. I live in a very windy area, and wanted something solid. This shed is everything and more in what I expected.The shed is SOLID! Tall inside dementions. I have had it for 9 months now and it has survived 60 mile per hour winds -3 foot of snow.and still stands like a boulder! It took my wife and I 4 days -after work hrs.( approx. 20 hrs.) to erect the shed. It took me 3 days (4 hrs./day) to caulk and paint and shingle the shed.The only edition I made were vents in the gable.I trust this shed design and it looks great. I plan on buying 2 more because to build these sheds myself (not this kit) will cost me 30% more. I did the math.Don't be set off buy the negitive reviews you read here, because if you pay REAL CLOSE attention to the instructions( read them 4 times-really)you will get excellent results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Overall a great little shed. Instructions were clear and simple. I'm fairly handy, but this was the largest constuction project I've ever done, and it was a lot easier than anticipated.
Laying/leveling the foundation was probably the hardest part, I used pre-cast pier blocks, 4x4 skids would have been easier. Get yourself a framing nailer and it will go together really quickly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kat927 NO!!!
I can't think of a single positive thing about this shed except for it's size. The quality of the wood is sub standard. Every piece of 2x3 that came out was warped and twisted, the wall panels were warped and the panels themselves are thin! If I had known what poor quality this was BEFORE I purchased it, I would have just priced out individual pieces myself and built one from scratch!

The wood was warped, directions were difficult to follow, and we had to buy so much additional wood that it was not worth the cost. I will not make the same mistake again!

Product was a great buy. I have had a similar 8X8 shed for the past 16 years on my old property recently sold and it is still in great shape. Wanted to upsize at the new house and the wooden kit was the way to go.

For the price we are pleased with the end product. However there are some items to be mindful of. First off, plan on about another $200 in supplies (nails, plywood for flooring, shingles, caulk, wood glue, etc.)
Also know that the kit is very heavy. We did not want to pay the exorbitant delivery fee so we picked it up and had them load it on our trailer at the store. However when we got home we had no way to get it off the trailer (as we don't have a forklift). So we had to take it off the trailer one piece at time.
Regarding the construction of the shed, it's pretty convuluted and very time consuming as there are a "million pieces". We had 3 or 4 people working on it at a time and it took us about a total of 20 hours to put together.
Lastly I would recommend installing the extra supports in the floor frame if you are going to store anything heavy (snowblower, lawn tractor, etc.).
