Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Young a good shed
It is pretty. It took a few days after work to install it. It is really heavy. The whole thing is over 1000 pounds. You'd better have at least two people to get the work done.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dude71 Looks good and well designed with a few issues during consruction.
The shed arrived in a large crate. The driver did not have a forklift so we opened the crate and removed each of the boxes. It took about 18 hrs by myself to construct. The base took a few hours. The instructions tell you to make an 8x8 base. Don't. Make the base the same size as the shed's dimensions. I had to bend some flashing to cover the several inches of the platform's plywood. Like a lot of reviews, I had warped studs. The worst were in the front around the doors. The siding was in real good shape with only a few knots here and there. I thought the fasteners were pretty good with a lot of stainless screws. To make the doors jambs plum, I had to make gussets out of plywood and attach them at the base of the sidewall and door jambs. The doors finally went in straight and plum. The hardware for the doors were in good condition. The metal piece on the door's edge hit the top of the jamb. I cut a quarter inch off and re-painted it. The door then closed perfectly. The first set of roof panels went in perfectly. The second set that came over the top seemed warped. They did not over lap the other roof panels on the other side very well. The heat of the sun has seemed to help. I put door weather stripping in between the panels at the ridge and there are no leaks. The trim seemed to be short and cut at the wrong angles. I bought new cedar, cut, and installed them. The joints are now tight. Over all it was a good product. I have gotten a lot of compliments about the shed. I bought it at 55% off and had to purchase more materials approx. $150.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by costalpilot beautiful shed
true the interior frame wood was warped. a builder friend thought it was due to shipping from a dry warehouse to our wet locale, the oregon coast. but it all went together as instructed by the well diagrammed instructions. the cedar exterior wood is beautiful, well cut for assembly, went on easily and the finished shed is really cute. the resin components are well made, blend nicely to make the picture attractive, and are easily installed. the assembly required a person with competent carpentry knowledge...only used 4 stars as its pricey for its size and interior boards werent best quality, but the end product is well worth the cost and effort if attractiveness matters to you. we got our own screws rather than used the provided screws and suggest you do the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crafty Not just a shed
We purchased this shed for an art stuido. It was easy to build and I can't believe the outcome of this product. The instructions were having you go back and forth and the hardware was not the best quailty, but it didn't bother us going to the Home Depot to get what we needed. I am extremely happy with the product and for this being our first shed to build and purchase it was a great experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by D200 Overall a great looking shed
Shed was delivered on an over-sized pallet and it was packaged very well with no damage at all. The components are stacked in such a way as to follow the steps in the assembly manual. Some of the items weren't accurately marked per the instructions but I was able to sort things out by visually comparing the component and/or by measuring it. As with any natural wood product there were some pieces of wood that weren't exactly straight but none that weren't entirely unusable. For example, a couple of the rafter pieces were not true but I w as still able to nail them together and in the end the roof did fit together. As for the cedar siding boards, I found that only a couple of boards weren't exactly straight but I was able to adjust for this when siding the walls. I found that the trickiest part was at step no. 67 of the assembly manual as the holes in the roof lathe did not exactly line up with the indents on the underside of the roof panel so I simply had to screw into the roof underside at a slight offset. It took me and my wife approximately 24 hours to build the shed which we worked on over a couple of weekends as we did not entirely devote our free time to it. Overall I am satisfied with the quality at this specific price point. For reference, the cost to build the wood flooring with pressure treated lumber and the concrete piers alone cost me approximately $450.00. You could purchase a larger shed at a lower price point but if you want the look of cedar and easy assembly, then I believe this is a great value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RobT Good Customer Service, things aren't the best fit
This is my first pre-fab wood project/shed. I was able to get it built but it took a bit of effort and not everything was perfectly sized. Customer service was great though, they replaced parts that were cracked or warped. It did take a long time for them to ship the parts but it was all free (under warranty). So if you have a warped part make sure to call cust service and have them replace it. Overall the shed is nice looking and if I had to do it all over again I'd probably just get a book on building sheds and cut all the pieces myself. The roof and doors are super sturdy, not cheap flimsy plastic. Those would be the only things I could not do myself that and the cedar siding. Overall it's a decent buy when it was on sale. I have no other pre-fab projects to compare it to however and I'm not a carpenter so take that into consideration when reading this review.

Very glad we bought this shed, matches our fence, yard and house beautifully! Have received quite a few very nice comments from neighbors and passers going by. Home Depot is the greatest!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by besh looks very nice
The framing wood was warped, therefore had to make adjustments to assemble the shed. The finished shed looked very nice. We had to paint the shed the same as our house because of the of our HOA.
