Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SHEDBUILDER This shed is true to picture and very easy to assemble. It took us about two evenings to assemble with two people. Everything is labeled so that you know which pieces go together and the instruction booklet is equipped with pictures. Immediately after installation, there was a big storm with torrential downpours and strong winds. The shed remained sturdy and in place and I have faith that we will have this shed for many, many years with minimal upkeep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Willow My husband and I put it up in 2 days after we made a 2x4 and plywood base. It fit together really easy. The one issue was me being afraid of heights up on the ladders. We could have used more of the AA screws as when you're trying to put them in the upper braces it's real easy to loose them in the metal braces. We ended up 8 short but was able to finish the bracing up of the floor with some different ones my husband had in the garage. The doors fit perfectly. It looks just like the picture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KMS16 Very Simple to Build & a wise investment
Excellent product with plenty of room. The only problem for me was finding a vehicle that could fit the box the shed came in. the box was roughly 8'x 4.5'

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MD Well built
The Rubbermaid big max shed seems to be very sturdy and good quality. Easy directions. I recommend a sturdy level base either wood or concrete. I put this up in a few hours and only needed help with the roof.. Building the wood base took me the longest. I used pressure treated 3/4 plywood and 4x4 pressure treated frame

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeeDee it's big and roomy for outside storage shed
I read many reviews before I bought this shed. I have to admit I was going to just set it up just like it shows w/o a foundation or concrete floor. After taking it out of box, I then realized, yes like it states in some reviews, it needs to be on a solid foundation footing of some sort. So, off to the store and spent another 125.00 for framing the flooring and level the ground where it was going to be placed. Once that was done, off to put it together, like a puzzle piece. Because of building the floor 1st; putting this shed together took 2 days... long breaks in between because of the sun and heat. I was able to put all the stuff I had in our ripped up garden shed, and the best happy dance I liked was that all the unused dog kennel panels fit nicely in this shed for storing those too. Awesome. And I still have space for using for storing more stuff. Only quality rating I gave was because there is some slight warping, but overall it is solid shed. Rubbermaid customer support was super replacing a cracked window piece and quickly arrived within 2 days. Awesome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cheech 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!

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MAB 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.
