Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeting Great shed and great company
Where do I start. This shed kit is great and OLT has a wonderful product and great customer service. They let you know what to expect from shipping to recommendations for painting/staining and putting in a.solid base. The assembly video gives you a heads up on what's involved and the instructions are thorough. Each step is cross referenced to parts that are labeled. It took my husband and me about a day to put in the paver base and two half days to stain all the pieces. The assembly took a full day, but we were kinda taking it easy and not rushing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Badminton Best small shed ever!
Well-made, attractive shed. Easy to install - took 6-8hr for two men who have experience with tools. Instructions were easy to follow. Doors close nicely, and wood quality is very good. The Canadian company was also helpful when scheduling delivery. Arrived in 3x100lb boxes on a pallet. All parts were included. If you are going to stain, it would be convenient to do so before you put shed together, but let it thoroughly dry so it's not sticky! We used clear silicon to seal all seams. We also bought a thin, black rubber runner from Home Depot to place on the floor. One thing to consider is adding a piece of flashing to the front side installed under the shingles (make sure you have this piece before you attach shingles so you don't have to undo your work). The roof does not hang over the door very far, so during a rainstorm water will run off and hit the floor edge just below the bottom of the doors. The water is then absorbed by the floor boards back into the shed, thus staining is also a good idea to prevent long term rot. Overall we love this shed!

It's super-cute and I installed it in a day. Everyone loves it. A couple of notes:
1. You really don't need a nail gun, as some have suggested, unless you're in a terrible hurry.
2. The OLT people were great, calling ahead of time for questions, making sure I knew the installation hotline,
3. Directions are pretty good, though I did lose an hour or two because I had to build it against a wall (so had to build back first). I'd suggest a little clearer instructions for this possibility. It was tricky and I had to improvise.
4. As everyone else says, pay very close attention to keeping things square. You most likely won't be perfect, but getting the walls right saves a lot of time down the road. Take your time to save time, and read instructions carefully.

The shed is a great buy. We ended up putting it against our house so we stained all the back pieces before we started. Then we built the whole shed but did not install any trim pieces. We stained the shed and the trim pieces and then installed them. I would recommend to stain/seal the shed for extra protection and doing it before you put the trim pieces on is important as you might not be able to get your brush in the cracks. We used Behr Weatherproofing Transparent in Cedar Naturaltone and it turned out great!

Very good directions, great quality of wood, no missing parts. Just be sure you watch the You Tube video SEVERAL times and read and re-read the instructions. We made only a few minor errors in staining process (cedar has ROUGH side out] but it still went together very easily. Looks GREAT near my wife's flower garden.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dgangnes Great Looking, Easy to Assemble Cedar Shed
This shed is great! The hardest part and the thing that took the most time was constructing a level paver base, because the spot we wanted it in was not level. Once the base was complete, then assembly of the shed went fairly quickly. It took 3 of us about 4 hours to complete the basic structure, and then maybe another 2 hours to finish all of the trim work. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. All of the pieces are clearly labeled and easy to find. The finished product is very solid and looks fantastic.

We were looking to add some extra outdoor storage for our three kids' toys and gear. This shed fit the bill. It is compact and handsome and provides excellent storage. It was very easy to construct taking about 6 hours with my wife as a second set of hands for a few steps involving the walls and roof. We are very pleased with the final product and would recommend it to anyone looking to add some stylish outside storage. Also, the manufacturer, I believe it is Outdoor Living, was excellent with coordinating the delivery.
