Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gardner Nice idea but hard to build
Nice idea but very hard to build. The parts are suppose to snap together but very hard to try and make them work properly. In the end, with 3 people working on it, each section had one tab snap into place but the others would not. We bought a can of expanding foam to seal all the gaps from the inside. it seems to be holding.
Also the doors are difficult to close properly. since they are tall and only have a backing at the very top and bottom.
Instructions do not demand a solid poured base but it would probably help with the assembly. Yes we used soap on the tabs and ended up with a board and hammer to provide the "tap into place". The rubber mallet just bounced off the plastic walls..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SueinMN Another Good roduct from Rubbermaid
After reading the specs on line & on the box, we were surprised by the actual dimensions required - while the shed is 3.5' X 7' (or 42"X84") we found we actually needed 46" X 87" with base and overhang on roof. We also chose to install a base of 1/2" exterior plywood over 4"X6" framing under the floor - makes ir really solid. The brackets for installing shelves and hangers are great - managed to install a bar with hooks for lawn tools & a pegboard for smaller items as well as a free-standing shelf set..
This is an up-size from and earlier 2' X 4' Rubeermaid shed, and I expect to get the same service from it. It went together quite easily, with only a bit of fiddling to get the roof panels snapped on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Very functional and useful shed
Picked up unit at store. Had help loading it but had to unload it in my driveway by myself. Packaging was slightly damaged and small blemish on one panel. It was too heavy for me to carry box to place of installation so I opened the box and carried it piece by piece to back yard.
Assembly was straight forward and I followed directions to the letter. I did it by myself but two would have been better. No problems. Looks great!
I cut plywood for attic shelving using dimensions in manual. Should have been at least 1/2" longer for safety.
I wish the store carried more accessories for hanging items and wall shelving in stock.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wrsr1 As Expected!
Received as expected, took about 3 hours to lay foundation and put together. Just make sure to follow the directions. Overall I am pleased with the outcome! With some of the negative reviews I was a little leery but had no issues and did it all by myself too so am not sure if those people read the directions correctly or tried to cut corners.
I fell this will hold up very well for what I am using it for (I do have a smaller cabinet from rubbermaid that I have had for over 15 years and that is still holding up well.
For the price of this unit I fell it is well worth the money!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jason Fitment of pieces leaves much to be desired.
I picked two of these storage sheds at my local Home Depot.
As most reviewers have already mentioned, make sure you assemble this on a concrete surface.
Trying to assemble this on dirt or gravel will make the job immeasurably more difficult. Have at least 2 people, a rubber mallet, and a small stool or ladder for the assembly.
The side and front walls snap into the base. The back walls do not. Overall, the fitment of the plastic is fair-poor, and the pieces do not interlock with eachother sufficiently to make a sturdy storage. Furthermore, the doors can be pulled straight out of the frame with little effort. This can be remedied with a power drill and some screws, but I felt that the Rubbermaid shed leaves much to be desired, especially when considering that these things are $500 each.
I kept both my units to avoid the hassle of disassembling, reloading, and returning to HD, but if I were to shop again for a storage shed, I would want a product with better finish.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Not worth taking home
To start, the surface MUST be perfectly level. Concrete or possibly sand but not gravel or other such surfaces. If not, it is nearly impossible to get the panels to inter-lock properly. Then, it is vital to have access to all four sides for construction purposes. Finally, the doors are a joke. Even if everything lines up perfectly, the doors provide NO security. A child could take both doors off in seconds, locked or not. We have nothing good to say about this unit. If however, we were placing it on concrete and the doors were made secure, we could be persuaded to take another look. However, we put it together and took it back apart, ready to return. Half a day wasted. Oh, buy the way, we have home building and remodeling experience of years and give this item a 1 because there was nothing lower.

Other than the roof it was very easy to assemble. The roof just takes patience. I did make a foundation using treated two by fours and filled wiith gravel. The unit, 7x3.5 easily holds a lawn mower, push type edger, several rakes, shovels, pretty much all the yard supplies. As a bonus the color of the building is nearly a perfect match to the color of our house.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nas415 Good value
I bought this shed to hold our extra patio furniture and pool supplies. The installation instructions seemed simple however I ran into a few snags. The rear wall panels would not lock into the floor panel because the wall tabs were half the size of the floor slots. Luckily I was putting mine against the side of my garage so the side panels will keep it all together. The roof panels were also quite difficult to install and would not lineup correctly to completely lock in place. Overall, it's a decent storage shed for the price.
