Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCS Nice Shed!
I installed this shed in three nights after work. The quality of the lumber was phenomenal. All of my boards were straight and of good quality. I had to buy one replacement board due to an improper cut that I made. My only suggestion is to take your time with all of the trim pieces and read, then re-read the instructions. It's easy to mix up some of the trim boards (even though they are well labeled in batches). All of the trim is what really makes the final shed look great. This is a nice cedar shed and at 6x6 it's perfect for a smaller space. I was also really impressed with the company that fulfilled this order for HD. It was an easy delivery and fairly easy install. Note, you do need to purchase two bundles of shingles to finish off the shed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anon Well Worth the Effort (and Price)
Purchased this shed for my (small) back yard to compensate for a shortage of storage place in a recently purchased house. I chose this model because of it's small 6x6 footprint. The shed arrived with a one day delay in the proposed delivery date. Make sure to request a lift truck for delivery.
It took 3 people with some basic carpentry skills about 9.5 hours to put the shed up. Including installing the roof. We worked pretty much non stop the entire time. I would recommend that you level the foundation before build day. This took us a while to do, and if I did this again, I would have done it the day before. Make sure that you have plenty of charged batteries for your cordless drill or impact driver (sinks a screw much faster than a regular drill) as most of the construction is done with screws. There is some trim work that is done with brad nails and a hammer.
The instructions were excellent. I printed off a second copy on a color printer, which I found helpful. Having two sets of instructions allowed us to 'work ahead' on several steps while the others were also working (trim pieces, assembling doors).
Shingles are not included in the kit. I purchased two (2) packages of asphalt shingles at Home Depot, and that was exactly the amount that I needed to roof the shed. I ended up with a lot of extra roofing felt paper that I then donated to Habitat for Humanity.
The finished product is great. The shed is sturdy, water tight, and secure. The door hardware provided allows for a good sized padlock to be mounted. The shed is quite spacey on the inside. I ended up buying some brackets for a shelf to allow me to store tools and other bulky items up off the floor. I put everything that would not fit in my house (golf clubs, bike, camping gear, canopies and chairs, lots of home brewing gear) and have room to spare.
The cedar smells great, and looks great as well. I did not treat the outside of it, but it should wear well.
All in all I recommend the shed to anyone who wants to put the time in for the build. Looks great, is secure, and should last for years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matennis Great size for small yard
I have a very small yard, no garage and a small basement. This is a perfect size to hold my outdoor tools, outdoor accessories and other unfrequently used stuff.
I was even able to add some loft space inside. My handyman was able to put it up in a day (also building a small deck to set it on.)
This is my second outdoor living shed. The other was a mere 3 ft by 5.5 ft and didn't hold much.
It has cute style to boot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 10thumbs Perfect Customer Service Reps at OLT!
Assembly of anything is not easy for a person with ten thumbs who does not know which end of the hammer to use. The assembly manual was excellent, easy to follow, clear, and well illustrated. Perfect customer service reps at OLT - helpful, intelligent and pleasant to deal with.
