Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by twinkiejan The Best Shed EVER!
My husband and I researched before buying this shed but it was a great buy! The shed is sturdy and EASY to put together. We assembled it together in 4 hours and managed to stay friends! All parts are clearly marked and the instructions are easy to follow. There is a YouTube video on how to assemble which we watched before putting it together. Highly recommend this shed and we are happy with the 10 year warranty!

PROs: I like the look of the shed and the directions were clear.
CONs: Three parts arrived damaged. Pictures attached
• One of the window panels was not wrapped correctly and it is scratched and cloudy.
• One of the panels was cracked and chipped. We ended up using contractors adhesive to put it back together.
• The inside of one of the roof panels looks to be melted in two places.
The original shipment took longer than anticipated. Because we could not wait to get replacement parts (2+ weeks) we made due with what was sent. I expected a better product considering the price and the manufacturer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bronco18 Looks great, sturdy, good size.
Easy to assemble and plenty sturdy when all together.
Drove 12" spikes down through floor for added stability.
Screws will strip out if not careful, but plenty of them and you can reposition or add more if not satisfied.

There were a few dents in the composite plastic, but I hid them well. It feels solid, and looks great. 3-4 hours to put it together alone. Did not need help. The platform took more time. We live around 9000 feet elevation in the Rockies, so we'll see how well it holds up in the winter with a a few feet of snow.

My 13 year old son and I put this shed together. It came with a few damaged pieces due to the shipping, but the design of the shed was very forgiving. We built a base of 2x4's and 3/4" plywood - filled in with gravel. I am very pleased with the shed so far. It rained the other day and no water entered the shed. I wasn't so sure because of a few damaged wall parts, including a part that was broken on an angle. You need to break the front panels in half and one broke unevenly. But the design allows for some miscues. We could not get all the screws into the center skylight due to some leveling issues, but so far no leaks. Sometimes the composite seemed to turn into powder when screwing into it, but so far it is okay. The video was helpful and overall I like the results. I suggest following the directions, but not tightening things all the way until you are at the end in case you need to adjust. We put up pegboard, on top of 1x1's - screw into walls as directed. Used a 4x4 sheet and a 2x4 sheet on each wall. Pretty much filled the wall and no cutting needed Shed looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by timtsb High quality, easy assembly
This shed is well made, looks great, and assembly is a breeze.
Assembly: Keter does an amazing job prepping the shed for assembly. The instructions are thorough, the parts are clearly labeled, and there’s even an online video that shows two people assembling the shed from start to finish so you can see exactly what needs to be done should you get confused. The most difficult part for most people will be leveling the ground before assembly. It is a necessary step, so don’t skip it! I once made the mistake of placing a plastic shed straight on top of grass and within a year the door was near impossible to open. Fortunately for this shed I already had a concrete pad where it was going so I didn’t need to bother leveling ground. I assembled it with my father-in-law over the course of two days. We took our time carefully following the directions and it probably took us a total of about 5-6 hours.
Finished product: I love the shed! It looks sharp and is definitely high quality. The wood composite material is a lot nicer than just plain plastic. I love that it is drillable so shelves and tool racks can be easily installed anywhere you want. The shed also gets plenty of light inside with the translucent roof peak, door windows, and wall windows you can position on any of the three sides of the shed.
This shed is worth every penny! Highly recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TNB7 Great product. More solid than other plastic type sheds.
Very easy to install. Be very careful when drilling the screws into the boards. I had a few screws make bigger holes and I had to improvise. My only complaint is the walls aren't thick enough to put in anchors when adding shelving. I put in my own shelving and actually drilled one whole all the way through to the outside. I then attempted to put in a wall anchor to help the walls hold weight but I couldn't find and anchor small enough to fit. I ended up using some metal drywall anchors and trimming off the tips so they would work. Other than that it is a strong shed and very easy to put together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hpiguy Gorgeous High End Appearance. Outstanding Engineering. Easy Assembly. Flawless Directions.
Keter knocks it out of the park with their Fusion 757 DIY assembly shed.
Do you want extra storage, and want something that looks high end and custom built? Sick of the garage being taken over by lawn tools, power equipment and anything else that clutters up the space where the car should be going? Get yourself this new shed by Keter. You will never second guess your decision.
It's made of wood-plastic composite material. It feels and looks like wood panels, it even smells like wood, but since it's mixed with plastic, it will not rot and it will last for a very long time. It's extremely similar, if not the same as the wood composite decking that is very popular. Durable in the elements, yet it works like wood and accepts wood screws with ease. People will think you stick built this shed from 2x4s and siding.
From the minute the enormous pallet arrives at home to the last screw going in the door frame, you'll find the entire process a pleasure. Make room for that pallet by the way. It's about 7.5 feet long, four feet wide and 18 inches tall.
Everything is packed perfectly and boxed in perfect order for unpacking at home. Take all the parts out and organize them, and double check that you have everything. It took about 30 minutes to unpack and count everything up. Numerous parts, and not one was missing. All parts are clearly labeled either with stick on labels, or the part number is molded into the part. All hardware is included, and the hardware bags have the part names and pictures of the part in the bag.
The directions are second to none. First rate. They are absolutely fantastic. Each step tells you exactly what parts you need and how many screws you'll need. the screw bags are labeled, making it confusion free. The illustrations are large and have a lot of zoomed in pictures to make sure you orient everything the right way the first time. These are some of the best assembly directions I've ever seen. My crate had two manuals in it so I could leave one with the shed and one in the garage with the parts to double check as I grabbed parts.
Tools needed will be a power screwdriver with phillips bit, an adjustable wrench and a rubber mallet. You'll also want a regular size step ladder for the roof process.
ASSEMBLY is straight forward and goes smoothly. We ran into no delays or areas that needed any rework at all. You place the floor halves on your leveled solid area and start stacking the wood-plastic panels on top of each other and bolting them to the corners. The design of the shed and how the panels interlock and join with the metal corners means it squares itself up as you build. Everything lines up the first time. Holes are pre-drilled for most steps and extra screws are included if you butterfingers a few.
You can even decide which of the three solid walls you want your window on. A great option that allows the window to be placed in the best area for light or security purposes. It's a long thin window. Even if someone breaks it out, they cannot fit through it to steal anything.
The roof goes on in four large sections, it locks into itself and all screws go in from the inside, assuring a leak free and solid assembly. They have designed a great skylight that forms the roof. peak. Between the skylight, the one big window and the door windows the shed is plenty bright inside.
Both doors go together fast and just about square themselves into the frame. When completed you square them off with one screw. Fast and easy. They have a metal locking bracket that can be padlocked to keep curious people out and your tools right where you left them.
I did almost all of the assembly myself. I'd say 90%. I had a helper for the roof panels and squaring the doors. Total assembly time was 5 1/2 hours. If you have little experience with DIY projects, give it a full day. You can easily finish this in 8 hours. If need be, if you just can't find a helper, you could do this all alone, there are steps like the roof and squaring the doors that will be much more difficult alone, but still doable.
I cannot find enough compliments for this new shed by Keter. They thought of everything and didn't miss even one step. They even have trim for the corners that just taps on with a rubber mallet. At no point during assembly did I get frustrated or upset that directions were wrong or that parts didn't line up. It all just worked. It's one of those projects that just kind of falls together. Kudos to the company that makes this.
Once all together it's big enough to drive a lawn tractor right in, and still have room for a push mower or snowblower plus many other items and tools.
This is a superlative shed from box to finished product. It looks custom built on site and it's so incredibly sturdy. The exterior look is perfect. We built this right next to the neighbor's fence and they complimented how fast it was going together and how great it looked. In other words, they won't complain about the toy looking plastic box on the fence line.
We couldn't be happier with our new storage building. I plan on telling everyone to get this model of shed when they need one.
