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.

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.

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.

This shed is not easy to construct. There were a lot of warped boards. Floor boards are not included. Roofing material is not included. Screws provided were poor quality. Nails were not included. I don't think that these things were mentioned when I purchased it. It was more difficult to put together then we thought. Once done it is a nice sturdy shed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ATSJ9963 Horrible "kit"
DO NOT purchase this "Kit" if you have any construction knowledge at all. First of all, you can build better, for about the same money (by the time you add up what is not included) Second the need to package this shed into a 4ft X 8ft box eliminates the possibility of solid 10 ft lumber. You will be splicing a lot of pieces together to make the 10ft. The building methods are insane, they follow no normal procedure or standard practices for construction.This forces you to constantly refer to the instructions. 3 the instructions refer to pieces via part number, I found less than 10% of the parts were actually labeled; thank goodness you are provided the dimensions. On a positive note; IF you have no building skills and are trying to DIY, The shed does assemble well enough. The instructions are vague but can be figured out easily enough.You will need help, repeat you WILL need help.
Personally I will never do this again, it cost more than expected and took longer than it should have.

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.

Many of the wood components were warped and hard to align and the directions were incorrect and hard to understand in several places.

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.
