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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Very Nicely Designed Shed
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.

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.

PAY ATTENTION to FINE prints, There are parts that you have to buy to complete this project. Shingles, nails and screw are not included. If this wasn't heavy and did not have to rent a truck to return it. I will returned it. What is the point of easy install if you still have to go and purchase the parts.

When they say on the outside extra materials not included that should be what it means not wait till you open the package and find the instructions inside telling you something different. Always make sure you know your rights as a consumer and take pictures of what the package tells you.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by REDREX DECENT FOR THE PRICE
The shed is of decent enough quality . However I would highly recommend buying 10' pressure treated 2x4's for framing the floor. Also I would build the floor on 16 inch centers instead 24" centers which requires buying a couple of additional p.t 2x4"s and defiantly go with 3/4" plywood for the floor decking . Easy enough to assemble if you have some const. experience or if you are really handy. Instructions are fairly straight forward.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LoveLove Shoddy warmped parts, missing parts. BUYER BEWARE
We have had to go back and forth to Home Depot because not only was it missing everything from fascia board to screws, but it the cut parts are not shaped right, there are boards that are completely warped and cannot be used logically, the corners are unAmerican designed, that is missing wood to frame it, the inside perimeter will not fit right and they do not include nailers to secure the openings of the perimeter (floor area), the upper roof part is misshaped and the directions do not tell you that the roof sector will not be plumb and you will have to use a notching tool to force it to be plumb, they do not include the wood boards to nail the door to, that is they expect you to build a cardboard-like two barn door area; whereas, with one wind will blow and fall right off. Typical American building structures have solid boards that will hold doors--this shed does not, although they will show a tiny image in directions pamphlet that shows a board. These door boards were not included with shed. There were not enough screws, which it said it came with, so thus far I have had to use extra box of screws that should have been included. The original shed pieces are about 1/2" or more cut off, that is not cut exactly to the dimensions it is supposed to be. Unless you have someone with great skill and knowledge, beware.... it won't work if you get a shed order as we did and unprofessionals won't know exactly what to do. It has cost us more in time running back & forth to Home Depot with photo images and our needs, waiting in customer service lines, and so forth which is really disturbing. This is just a little fair warning to anyone who really needs a shed manufacturer they can trust! What would be more worthwhile, is to have the shed built from scratch by a professional with American store bought items that are not "cheap splitting wood pieces" as this shed came with, and unprofessional missing portions. Don't even buy a kit if you can help it from these people, because from my experience they cannot be trusted and it most likely is not designed in America with solid standards and they try to rip you off by not including needed parts. It would have been worth it to just make and design one from scratch and going to a lumbar yard to get good wood and parts and have it built by a trusted builder instead. At least I would know it would not end up like a hut made in the poorest sections of Africa or an unworthy construction made in the worst part of Indonesia.
Unless you want to contend with missing parts, splitting wood, warped beams, missing parts that state they are included in kit, with strange building construction, and maybe more issues, take my word! I'm doing you a favor by taking the time to relay these facts and truth to you! Don't buy any shed kit from this company!

At first I was second guessing if I should buy this shed because of the bad reviews but thought I give it a shot. I spent extra $500 for materials if you want it sturdy. It took about two weekends because of a bad weather to build it. Overall the shed turn out to be great as an addition to our house. I would recommend this shed.
