Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MattDinOC nice compact shed
I chose this shed because it is pretty compact, yet it has space for shelves for storage above the floor. I store 2 folding tables, 8 folding chairs, a small metal firepit, 2 beach chairs, and other miscellaneous items in it.
Since I didn't want to place it on my patio, I built a wooden platform per the instructions in the manual. If you want to get a head start on this, you can download the instructions from the Suncast website ahead of time and get started before your shed actually arrives at your house. Building the platform and getting it level and stable actually took longer than building the shed.
Building the shed was straightforward, but I agree with others that the instructions on how to attach the hinges to the walls was not explained well. The bolt should be preinstalled in the hinge since it's easier to put it on if you do that first. Then you snap the hinge onto the designated spot on the edge of the wall, and tighten the bolt until it grabs tight to the plastic wall. If it's not grabbing it tight, then you did it wrong. :/ Attaching the bolts that secure the front edge of the roof was a bit of a guessing game also, but we got it figured out.
The plastic assembly bolts and tool provided in the package work just fine as long as you don't overtighten them. They don't need to be cranked down tight! I had my son helping me. It's much easier if you have an assistant to hold the first wall piece in place while you manipulate the second one etc.
Installing a shelf actually improves the structural rigidity of the walls a bit, but I still would not lean anything very heavy against them. If you need a shed that can handle decent forces pushing against the inside of the walls, you probably want to build something out of wood instead of hollow plastic. That said, I did go off-book and add two additional screws to my shelf to secure it to the back wall. That ought to help prevent the back wall from bowing outward, helping to better support the shelf and helping maintain the shape of the shed.
This shed is not very theft-deterrent, even with a lock. If securing the contents from theft is a primary concern, again, you should be getting something more substantial than hollow plastic.
Overall, the shed went together pretty easily, and I'm happy with its construction. I expect to get several good years of service from it.

This was a very easy assembly and a very practical size for all my garden tools. i have a larger shed for my large items, like my mower, so this was the perfect solution for storing all those misc. rakes, shovels and spades. My only disappointment was that there are no accessories for this shed to hang tools, but I went to Home Depot and purchased a couple of tool hanging bars and they worked great.

Nice sized storage shed for my yard. It was relatively easy to put together, my wife and I did it in about 2.5 hrs. Slight trouble with the hinges, getting them right and tightening the screws enough to make sure the stayed on with opening and closing. Moved all or our yard equipment to the shed from our garage and still have plenty of room to store other items. Will explore the use of brackets and shelving for the storage shed at a later date. Should at least include brackets and shelving material for at least one shelf. The shed has gone through two torrential rainstorms and did not leak anywhere. We set it up on cement blocks 12" x12" and level. I would recommend this shed to anyone seeking storage of a small nature without spending for a large shed.

We had a very bad experience. We drove a total of 140 miles had to return the shed. We had the shed half together getting ready to put right side on and noticed we did not have a right side we had two left sides. Had to disassemble and put back in box and return NOT HAPPY!!!!
