Answer: 
Technically, yes, it's possible. Is it practical? No way. The pieces are quite large and when putting together the roof, you need one person holding on end in place while the other aligns/screws in the other side. You will likely also need a second person to push or put some weigh onto a part while you attach or screw something in, as some of them don't align very well without a little nudging.

One person could probably pull it off but I wouldn't recommend it. The floor and walls are pretty straightforward; the challenge comes when you start working on the roof and that is when the second set of hands comes in very handy.

Answer: 
My husband built a wooden "deck" for our shed but we didn't have one for our smaller one which is 7'x3.5' in dimension. Its best to have a level surface to keep it on...plus we have ours up against our house. While I don't believe you have to have it, especially if your grassy area is flat, the floor will be sturdier (to hold all of the lawnmowers, tillers, etc.) if it is on something level and solid.

Allowing a couple of inches for some cardboard packing around them, that would make the package approximately 87.5 x 45 inches; stack all the panels and parts up and it was about 20 inches thick.. Weighing in at 351 pounds, it took the two delivery guys and a hand truck to muscle it off the truck and onto my driveway. Once it was lying flat, I unpacked it and took it to the backyard piece-by-piece, where I stored it under a tarp until I got some help to put it together. All this is my recall from over a year ago and is still an approximation (except for the weight). Hope that helps. Read Less

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 346 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great shed...should have bought thia a long time ago! With all the garage clutter I had, I should have bought this a long time ago. After putting down a nice level floor of pressure treated plywood, this shed went together in a day, and I did most of it by myself! It holds tons of winter items perfectly, including all my patio furniture...cushions, etc. I love it! August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by motorcycle parking I read several reviews of these size sheds and already have a smaller one for bicycles. I definitely agree with people recommending using a magnetic screwdriver, there are several times you are putting screws through big holes into smaller holes and if you drop them, they will be trapped in the metal rail piece unless you unscrew it and tip the screws out the ends. Pre-drilling the spots where you need to do this does help a lot with not dropping any screws. You do need to assemble the windows and don't forget the rubber seals. The instructions are pictures, not many words. The center ceiling is a little tricky, you slide these metal pieces in the length of the roof and twist them to pull down the top, then screw the other end into the metal beam on each side. The pictures really didn't help me figure this step out. Look for holes as they all seem to be there for a purpose. Our only issue was there were 2 screws missing at the end and I went to Home Depot to pick them up for $1.26. My 12 yr old son and I built this over the course of 4.5 hrs after having already unloaded the box, carried all the pieces to the outside area and verified all the pieces were accounted for. We built it on the driveway. This box would have been $99 to deliver, it took 2 workers and 2 forklifts to get it in my truck but it did fit in our 2009 Honda Pilot with the tailgate tied down over the last few inches. The box was about 45"W by 90"L and 24" high. August 3, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of storage without eyesore First non metal storage shed. So far I'm liking. Twice the storage space than the old metal 6'x8' building this replaced, it was only 5 ' tall. Got all the contents of replaced building plus a lot of stuff that had been stored in shop and I still have room. The square footage the same but the 6' walls and 8'+ peak just doubles the volume. Seams easier to get around inside to retrieve items. I have a 24" x 5' x6' tall shelve on left as you enter, 2)18"x36x6' tall shelves across the back with space between to utilize the peak space for pruning poles/ 7' ladder. On the right is 12"x30"x6' 7 shelf unit, with 2 upper shelves tying it to rear unit. Allows rolling welder & cart back. I used included hooks to mount some pegboard. All the shelves units are connected together. The amount of storage is simply amazing. Overall I like the building, time will tell as far as far as longevity. Construction pretty simple. I had made arrangements to have help installing the roof, seams where most have problems but it was up and installed without much issue. I can only say I took extra effort to keep panels stored flat and out of the sun until needed. Other than that maybe just luck. Tied off panels until I got some screws started. Rear corner was only place didn't want to set flat, but again, just attached string to pull down until screwed. Tips, poke the thin flashing covering screws holes. Especially on wall to roof panels. It allows to 'see' the dimple where screw is supposed to go into. Helps aligning. Second is leave rear window out until done, keeps temps down allowing air to move while constructing, plus I found really useful for reaching thru while working on it. Magnet to retrieve screws. Torque on the screws- gently, especial roof panels in sun. very soft. Ladder. The Floor MUST be flat. I am caulking the walls to sheds floor and the floor to plywood flashing. I do not appreciate the thru holes in shed floor that allows water to reach sub floor. This shed would be ideal on FLAT concrete pad. No inside handles on doors?, cant close behind you say if its raining? I added some straps to grab. Rear window holes did not match frame, Rubbermaid sent new one-it didn't fit either so ended up ob-longing the holes. But the main day to day issue for me is the doors. Cant use just one as they overlap and must be closed in unison, short of whacking into place. No adjustment. Likely down the road Ill be addressing, either external hinges (allowing to plug the 'pin' holes a plus) or possibly convert to trolley/slider. They seem to be weather tight but just to close together for ease of use. I'm in & out all day. Other than that, as mine went together easily, (I watched and read several efforts so was expecting a lot more grief) a helping hand would simplify but not required. Overall the building nice, though I'm more stoked with the added storage, everyone thinks its 'cute'. Does look nice. Bottom line if you need a shed-for the price this one works. Looks good setting in the yard. Storage space for the 7'x7' footprint amazing. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice and easy I put this shed together with the help of one other guy. Only took a couple hours. A good solid base is really needed. We made one out of pretreated wood. Very happy. June 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice looking good value for price Three of us put it together. The directions were not clear in certain steps. Needed a magnetic screw driver to put some of the screws in. That could have been designed better. Took us 7 hours to put together including building a foundation. It is a great shed and was actually fun to put together. Can't say I would do it again. June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Easy to assemble, great instructions. I was able to build it by myself with the exception of installing the peak section of the roof as this needs someone outside holding it down while it is screwed down inside. Easy to keep clean, plenty of space. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Size Make sure you build a base for the shed to sit on for best use. Works perfectly. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my shed! :-) Pros: Nice quality shed when finished. I am really happy with my end product, the purchase online was great, the delivery was excellent. Cons are not terrible: Nothing is preassembled, you have to put EVERYTHING TOGETHER down to the windows, etc. The directions for the roof are not that clear so watch one of the videos online first. The H bar has these screws that go through one opening to be attached in a smaller hole so if you don't have a magnetic screw driver you will lose a bunch of them. Make sure you also punch through the spots marked for screws before putting up, it will save you a ton of time. It took two of us 7 hours to complete beginning to end. I wouldn't advise not having a second person, you really need another person to get the roof on properly. End result is worth the work. Thanks Home Depot! April 27, 2016
