Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by welove2go Undamaged, All Parts Present - Assembled by 75 year old man and 63 year old woman
We had the storage building shipped to Home Depot. We rented a pickup from Home Depot to bring it home. It comes in two large boxes that, when separated, will fit on the floor on one side of the garage.
We broke down our assembly of the storage building into two days, just because the weather was in the 90 degree range during the day. The first evening, we assembled the floor, drilled holes in the concrete (Tapcon 1/4" drill bit), and placed the concrete anchors (Tapcon 1/4" x 1-3/4"). Then we added some concrete blocks at the front of the slab and then some sand, pebbles, and powdered concrete (that we watered down to stabilize the sand and pebbles) in the space we left between the slab and the fence .
Early the next morning, we assembled all the walls, and attached/completed the doors and roof. That evening, we inserted the windows and installed the shelves and started moving items into the building. If the weather had not been so hot, it could have been done in a day.
We thought the pieces would be heavier than they were. I think the total shipping weight was 133 pounds. There were some extra screws of most of the types included. Most parts fit together very well. We were least satisfied with how the bottom part of the windows fit. It looks very nice now that it is completed. We hope that it will maintain its appearance and be sturdy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by givemetoystools Don't get much better than this Apex keter shed
Own 9 sheds -- Keter, Apex, Rubbermaid, Suncast & Thinking Outside. The most expensive were Rubbermaid, then Suncast, then Thinking Outside, then Keter & Apex. The ones that are holding up the best are Keter/Apex & Suncast. They do not leak. Their roofs did not significantly warp despite the freezing to frying temps. I have two of the Apex. They look exactly like the Keter and I believe them to be the same. Easy to set up on level surface. Hardware was easy for my mom's arthritic hands to manipulate. No rot. No repainting. No poisonous insecticides to prevent ants and termites. No rust. No splinters. No warping, No wood rot. GREAT SHED

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sinatra This product is too flimsy for the high price.
This product is very easy to install, given that you establish a good level base, by the way the floor is not sturdy enough to be sitting on dirt or sand base it needs a solid base, I used 4x4 pressure treated for the outer base and pressure treated 2x4 joists. I believe that the price is way to high for the quality of materials. The real test will be this winter I don't believe it can withstand the heavy snows of the Northeast winters. They should tell future customers what is the roofs lbs/sq foot weight capacity.
Buyer be ware.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TmAem Good appearance and right height.
This product has been sold several years ago under the name tag of a big tool maker. The current version is not as sturdy as the earlier version and is more difficult to assemble (because of looser build tolerances). However, the shed looks good. It has stand-up interior space while the exterior dimensions are not overly high, and the door latch, skylight, and windows are nice features. Might be 5 star quality if the floor was molded with thicker material.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by vacabobb Disappointed
Easy to assemble with 2 people, instructions were good......side panels and roof are flimsy and I worry about years to come if they will hold up.......skylight along ridgeline of roof, bad idea, anticipate leaking in future.....I recommend caulk everywhere and heavily...shipper was difficult to work with

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TxMimi2 Great Building
I bought this building to free up space in my garage and to store my yard tools and lawnmower. It's just great! A bit more than I wanted to spend on it, but great. I have room to store my Christmas decorations,too. It is a challenge for one person to put it together but overall, I highly recommend this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sheds Needed a new panel for skylight in just 4 years. It was shipped free, so that is good.
Product works. Keep all paperwork as the guarantee is good.It takes a long time to build a good base for this unit.
Also a lot of expense. When you are done, convince your neighbor he needs one, it will be a lot easier the second time.!
