Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BradtheMan Great quality, value, and ease of setup - Great Product!
Unfortunately the prior owners of my house left a 'death pit' on the side of the house with no use I could think of. Decided a shed would do the trick, and after a lot of research decided this shed would fit the area and be of great use. Took 3 guys a little over 4 hours to complete the whole install including caulking around all the bottom edges. Add a couple hours to build the frame. Can't say enough how happy I am with this shed, and how much more sturdy is than I originally thought. Definitely would recommend this anyone.

I ended up assembling this shed by all by myself in about 12 hours over two days on a concrete slab. And amazingly everything fit and worked flawlessly. The doors were a little tricky to install by myself, but a few clamps fixed this for a third hand. Way better than the two metal sheds I have put up before (with two people). Highly recommended.

As we assembled the shed, we thought it felt a little weak. As we finished it proved to be extremely sturdy and very well made. It's been through two major rains and no leaks! A+!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jhaton All in all a good buy
A good sturdy shed that you won't have to paint every few years. It was fairly easy to set up. I had 2 friends help me and we completed it in about 6 hours. I highly recommend having 3 people working on it. One will stand around occasionally, but for parts you really need 3. The directions are adequate, but because it is only pictures and no words, you can miss a step, or put something on backwards, but it doesn't take long to figure out your mistake. A good shed and looks nice, but it could use to have some more accessories, like wall mounts for hanging tools. Make sure you have a good solid base built for it to set it up on.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FrankH Unique idea with questionable design
I purchased the "LIFETIME" 8'x15 ft building. It Shipped on 3 "Heavy" pallets. Each pallet was marked with "LOTS" of factory numbers, to confuse some efforts. The assembly manual was finally found in box #2. Lets cut to the "quick" -- I would highly suggest that you only build this product on a "PERFECTLY FLAT" substrate (full concrete pad or a full "wood deck"). REASON: The parameter of the snap together "Floor" is the "only" bottom support and alignment for the building's walls. Putting it another way--The walls snap into the slots of the snap together floor's parameter!!!! If you have any slight ripple in the substrate, that the snap together floor sets upon, you may find that the bottom of wall panels will not reliably snap & connect or even stay connected to the snap together floor!
Then there is the case of how the building is anchored to the ground! The manual recommends four 3/8" anchors; one in each corner of the snap together floor. If the wall panels are not fully snapped into the snap together floor, then what is there to keep the structure from falling apart like a straw building? I intend to modify the recommended building tie down method via adding cable tie-downs at each of the 4 upper roof line corners of the building and then using earth anchors for the cables.
The good news is that the fit of the plastic panels is excellent! Only a few very minor gaps needed some small dabs of caulk to eliminate bug access. You'll want to add a entry threshold at the door to further seal the building. This building is very watertight--several heavy rains have shown no signs of water entering the building.
ALSO: To be sure you get it right; assemble the snap together floor on a flat surface and measure the overall dimensions of the snap together floor--it will assure that the substrate you'll build the snap together floor and the building upon, will be properly sized. Don't trust the snap together floor dimensions listed in the manual or on the boxes!!! GOOD LUCK!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by babool Really nice, sturdy building, just what I needed.
First off I replaced an old metal building I had on a concrete pad. I loved how this building put together except for one thing, attaching the wall sections to the floor. I finally used a grab bar to lift up the floor section to snap in, corners could be difficult. Beyond this the rest was a snap, a two man job if you have your parts out, separated and open bags only for the next task outlined. I put both windows on one side since it was installed next to the house. This beat, hands down, placing a building or building one yourself, cost wise and time wise. You'll get a sturdy, no rust, no paint building that should last for years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rick looks good. great value
put my shed on a wood platform w/concrete blocks for a foundation. make sure it's all level. i did all the construction alone except for the walls. i used a pry bar to snap the walls to the floor. the shims just didn't cut it. stick pry bar under floor at the cut out, use your foot to push pry bar down and pull down on the top of the wall. you'll need help with the doors and the peaks. did the roof alone. directions suck so think things through and read ahead. you'll need 4 bolts w/washers for the floor. not included. it's at the end of directions. just remember to be level or the doors won't line up. oh! don't go crazy if the top of the walls don't line up perfectly. it won't matter.
took me 2 full days doing it with my wife's help on walls, doors & peaks.
