The directions could use some help, in many cases you really have to figure out what they are saying and which screws to use. I suggest you keep all your little bags of screws that come in the bigger bags together and do not mix them up, this will help you along the way. If you are building this aginest a wall it can be hard to set the corner wall panels as well as adding the decorative corner's at the end of building it. Where ever you place your floor is pretty much where your shed is going to stand, after you get a few walls up it is not easy to slide it around. The looks of the shed are cool, much better than the old metal arrow sheds. It looks very sturdy, I have not had any bad winds or rain to comment on yet. The first two roof panels were a bit tuff to get on but after that it was cool. I dont know where people are saying two guys can do this in 6 or 8 hours because i surly cant see that. It took 4 hours just to break down the two boxes to make sure you have all your parts. You need to stack them in different piles and reference your manual and check for damage. Also you have a bunch of pre-assembly so plan on your first several hours of building roof truss's and things b-4 you start the walls. It takes pretty much everything you have to get your boxes in the yard unless you have a fork lift. Delivery is curb side only. You get two boxes and each box is about 300lbs and they are about 6' X 2' X 15" , very hard to move so be ready for that. The two delivery guys could barely get it on my driveway with a forklift jack. So a few issues but nothing major, i would plan on a two 1/2 day job at least counting pre-assembly. When i say it is hard to assemble, thats not the whole shed, most of it is a snap and well done. I will say the doors are a chore to get aligned if at all. the directions are not clear on door install and offer very little help, this has to be the worst part of the shed building experence, i still cant get mine to work properly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ralphy Reasonable shed- not like a stick built but, fast to install and reasonably priced.
Assemble was okay- written directions are like most written directions, they don't seem to be written for that group of beings commonly referred to as "human."
However, watch the Youtube video posted by Lifetime, that was helpful. The video is 8 minutes in length and probably saves a couple hours during assembly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck product is very attractive. definitly takes two to put together.
Shed is very functional and attractive. There should be more information with the instruction package on what additonal items are available for purchase that can be installed inside or outside. Also would have liked info on roof load strenght since we get a lot of snow. Also info on sealing the unit from water. I did sealed the bottom after I was sure I had completed installation.

Images do not do this shed justice. This is by far the best looking plastic shed I've seen. It feels much larger than the 8x10 metal shed I was replacing. The trusses and roof are high so there is more storage room than expected.
Assembly was a bit difficult as the instruction only have images. I am fine with no directions if I am building a small piece of furniture, but this is a large shed with a lot of parts. Anyway, my neighbor and I got this together in a little over 6 hours and I have no regrets with the finished product.
I know I paid a bit more for this shed but with the features like the opening window, windows in the doors and the nice floor, it was worth it. Also, the 10 year warranty sold me on this model.
I would definitely recommend this product since I've received nothing but compliments from my family and friends. I am also happy that it will not rust like my old shed. Just be prepared for a full day of assembly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick I like the way the shed looks and the functionality of it. However, the instructions were difficult to follow at times.
I picked up at the shipping office because they couldn't deliver it when I needed it. Customer service was friendly.

I decided to buy this shed after reading all the other reviews. The only issue that we had with the shed with with the doors. There had to be some adjustments made to ensure the doors would shut properly to keep out the rain.
