My townhouse lacks storage. I am considering having someone build me a shed. Can this shed be used to store home items not lawn items and tools.

Answer: 
Shed stays dry, however, humidity, rodents and other outdoor pests... shed does not protect against these. You should consider climate control for upholstered and any valuable furnishings or paperwork. Great for lawn furniture!

Answer: 
ABSOLUTELY! The directions clearly provide three options for a foundation. FLAT AND LEVEL is a must for an easy assembly. I chose a wood frame platform and all parts fit perfectly.
A copy of the directions are available online if you want to see them before purchasing the shed.

Answer: 
A level foundation is required in order for all of the parts of the shed to snap together correctly and for the doors to open and close correctly. Also, the polyethylene flooring that comes with the kit is quite thin and without the proper foundation beneath it, it would dent. We recommend a foundation of concrete or a wooden platform.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Shed! It went together pretty smoothly, took about 9 hours with me alone. On day one, I did all the pre-assembly in 3 hours while I watched a long movie, then assembled the shed the following day in 6 hours. This does not include the time I spent on a couple previous days building a concrete block foundation on top of a bed of pea gravel. I wanted a firm foundation that would drain well. I really like the shelves and peg board strips that come with it. The only negative would be with the instructions. It can be confusing because parts are referred to by both part numbers AND combination of letters. There is a sheet that they added that helps to decipher it, but it is a pain to have to find that sheet when you need it. The videos that you can refer to online are very helpful. Overall, a great looking shed with great features. May 29, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lot of nice features Couple of mistakes in the instructions (one spot it referred to wrong part number and one spot it failed to mention how the center peak roof piece needs to go in only one way - instructions just said all three should overlap) but very detailed and it went together pretty easy. Lots of extra parts. Still not 100% sure on how strong it is or how it will handle heavy winds as being composite material I don't have total confidence in the screws holding to plastic holes. If I saw one in the store I might have went with another design. But looks nice and plenty of room. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! I'm a single mom with intermediate DIY skills. That being said, with the help if the instruction manual AND the YouTube videos, I put the shed together all by myself. It took me a couple of days (got frustrated a few times and had to take a break), BUT, I did it. Would have been fast and easy if I had a helper who was taller than me (I'm 5'5"). Since I've assembled it, there have been a few episodes of very heavy rain and....no leaks! The only reason I marked the value as "good" and not "excellent" is because I still think that all sheds are overpriced. But, I purchased this when it was on sale, so it wasn't too painful to my wallet. I am very pleased with my purchase. December 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect fit, looks good, and no paint/rust. Description was accurate, very strudy. It took two guys six hours to put-up, not including cement slab. The only problems were in the directions: not very clear and the illustration of the long shelf was wrong. I highly recommend this product. May 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is great and well put together. I am very excited for this shed for my home. It's great for storing things and it looks great. I'm glad I got this. :) Instructions were a little hard to decipher, but I got it put together pretty quickly. Put it all together myself, but I recommend at least 2 people. It took some maneuvering. :) July 3, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great shed It went together well and has been through some rainstorms and snow storms with no leakage. Is defiantly a two person job and took us about six hours to put together. Directions are pictures so a little confusing sometimes. All in all a great value. We got on sale. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent shed. VERY GOOD fit and finish. Built it by myself in under 4 hours with the exception of 1/2 hour assistance with the roof. December 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aweasome shed The shed was not too difficult to assemble, but it is definitely a two to three man’s job. The instruction can be a bit confusing; however, you can scan the bar code with your smart phone to view a video of how to put every part together. Make sure you lube all the panel walls bottom while “snapping” it to the base. It will make it go a lot easier. (Trust me on this). Overall, this is a really nice shed. I’m very happy with it.
