Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homeimprovementguy Great Shed and fairly easy to assemble
There are a lot of reviews of this product that indicated it was extremely hard to assemble. I did the first few steps (set up of metal roof supports) alone and then had a friend help with the assembly of the sides and connection of the roof. I had a great sale when I bought this, but it would have been great at full price too. I relocated the openable window from the back to the side based on location of my shed and my fence. This worked perfect, but I had to place both long shelves on the same side (did not realize this issue until it was too late) but not a big problem. It was delivered in boxes that were 10 feet long.. so you need to be prepared for that as well. I did have to measure some parts to determine which piece they were discussing as the individual parts are not labeled, which was annoyeing

Took about an hour to build a 2x4 framed base then 8 hours to assemble the shed. Nice looking and sturdier than I imagined.

I'm happy with the shed and with the simple instructions to put it together. The problem is it was damaged when I received it and I was never contacted from home Depot or the delivery company (not home depot) regarding the issue

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sparky Should have stick built a shed.
This was my first "plastic" shed so I can't say how it would rate among plastic sheds. Our first choice was an Amish (already built, drop it on your spot) Shed. If it could have fit between the trees that is what we would have. I could have stick built it, but feeling a little lazy I went along with the plastic shed decision. Big mistake. If you own a circular saw and a few basic tools you can build a shed. There are lots of youtube videos. The Lifetime shed comes with directions and youtube videos. We spent the day building a floor, and putting stuff together. Everything has to be put together first before you start the actual build. I only had scheduled help for day one and had to call in favors to help with the walls, and then several days later when someone else was available, part of the roof. Until the roof was complete a 6 year old could have knocked everything down. I was able to finish it off by myself, 15 days after starting it. I could have built two wooden sheds in that time. We'll see if this shed lasts as long as the metal shed it is replacing, 30 years. I doubt it. I would not recommend this to a friend nor would I do it again.

I was so excited about the shed until we got the floor done and the sides and trusses going up great then came the doors. Left one great, right one NOPE! Had two left floor panels so the right door wouldn't go in. At a stand still.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Good shed for the money
My wife researched this deeply before buying. It came out to be a good purchase for the price, and compares well to others in the category (plastic shed), of which I have owned several. I like the design of the roofline parallel to the entry, and the peaked roof on the entry. I'm 6 ft 3, and I can walk right in with no dicking even at the side walls.
Instructions were frustrating, because it takes you step by step through each painstaking screw, and then just skips some stuff. (for instance, it didn't tell you to put on the back roof panels- you just had to look at the picture and see it was done in the next step). Still trying to get it leveled up so the doors close, and I put it on a concrete pad. The walls are a bit thin. I had hoped to put my riding mower in there, but I fear that if I touch a wall, it might take it out. I'll do it anyway, but with great fear, and carefulness. I noted the skylights look like they will disappear in the first hailstorm that central Texas is famous for. Will have to make covers for them in that case.
Otherwise, it looks quite nice, and seems like it will last a long time. Especially like the steel roof gable supports to shore up the plastic. That will help for longevity, I think. Also, the plastic shelves are supported by steel- that will keep them from bowing in the heat like the plastic ones on my last shed. I wanted to leave the shelves out, but it looks like they add support to the structural integrity, so I installed them. I noted that their screws look like they might pull out on the ends if you put weight close to them. So, I will probably find some way of adding a steel plate to them to support on that point. Would have ben nice if they had included one with the kit.
Good for keeping things out of the wind and rain, but I don't know why anybody would put a lock on this shed. It just keeps honest people honest, I guess. A real thief would just cut down a wall with a box cutter or drywall saw. Don't plan to put anything valuable in it.
