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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Badco Great value in a small shed
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.

Very happy with the shed overall. Price is reasonable, construction is good. However, the included hardware is garbage. We spent about $200 to purchase upgraded hardware (and shingles and flooring, but those aren't included in the kit anyway) and are very happy that we did. We hired a pair of contractors to assemble it. They said it was oddly constructed at first (pieces they thought were "junk" turned out to be necessary), but it did come together well. Seems very sturdy, it's the perfect size and I'm so happy we made the purchase. If they charged a little bit more and upgraded the hardware included, I would've given it 5 stars.

My husband and son went to purchase the wood shed. My husband paid cash. When the sales person was assisting with putting The wood shed on our truck they noticed the shed had dry rot. They had to take the shed off the. truck. Then went back Into the store. That was the last wood shed at the Folsom Home Depot. The sales person called the Carmichael Home Depor. They had 3. But the sales person said my husband had to go to Carmichael and pick it up. Our son had to go to his work and had to use the truck. Why didn't Home Depot send the shed to the Folsom store ? Why should we be inconvenienced when your product was not worthy of purchasing?

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.

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.

I feel this shed needs far to much reinforcement for the floors especially, but also the walls and roof. I think it might be fine for someone who will set it on a concrete pad in a fair climate location. I am in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and this shed would never make it through a winter without the major reinforcement I did.
