Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYCalHeights Nice shed, rotten packaging.
Flimsy packaging of large assemblies lead to dire circumstances and many days of delay. But after all was said and done, the shed was built almost a month after purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HuckleberryHound666 Great looking shed
Considering this is a "blow-molded" plastic structure, it looks great and will perform as needed. Follow the instructions; pay attention to seating each panel into their respective slots, this will ensure alignment throughout the project - especially when it comes time to hang your doors. Some of the door issues I've seen on here - likely - stem from improper panel indexing. A quarter inch lost here or there will cause a struggle later on. To save yourself some "pain" when installing the window splines, just apply a light bead of silicone into the grooves prior to gasket/spline placement. If you construct your platform correctly, both level and square, you know that everything sitting on top will follow. Don't worry about how long it [does, or does not] take, it will be done when you're finished. I assembled the shed solo, and was fine doing so but that's just me - I enjoy working solo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Nice addition to house, holds lots of stuff.
It took several days to set up, most of the time preparing the ground first. I found the pins were very easy to set without breakage by placing a pliers flat against the head and tapping the pliers with a hammer. Did not break off any tabs that way! It did take longer to put up alone, but I was able to do it without any other help. For example, to get the header in place, you just have to clamp two 2x4's to the frame on each side and guide the header in. I did have to do a little grinding on the plastic C's that hold the roof on to get them to fit. Instead of buying tool hangers, I made my own with 4" diameter plastic irrigation pipe cut at a 30 degree angle into 3" pieces, with a 1.5" strip cut out of one side. Using 2 screws to attach to the wall about 4' up holds them up nicely, with the yard tool suspended from the top. (The angle has to be up and out or the tool falls to the floor.)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sinnedk doors will not function properly
I wish the company would require the designer of this building to have to assemble one themselves. maybe then they would get the pattern for the screw holes correct. very hard to assemble, especially the windows.
the biggest complaint i have is the front doors will not align properly. there is no way to square the front at all. plastic attached to plastic with a 1/2 inch screw will never hold. i plan on installing a metal plate in each front upper corner to try to get it squared so the doors will shut.
the only good thing about this building is it looks pretty good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kzanard Overall a good looking shed for the money, but have a helper!
The finished product is a very good looking shed for the money. If my zoning allowed, I would have went bigger but there is a lot of room if you can utilize the height (it is a tall shed!). Assembly was fine until it came to roof. Definitely have to take your time and would have been impossible without my 2nd helper. I had built the full , pressure treated base and made sure it was level. The structure still required some muscling into square (specifically in the upper corners) to get the roof panels on. Also, even though the 2 panels for left roof (and same goes for the 2 panels for the right) are labeled identical, they are NOT. They differ ever so slightly at the bottom where they mate with the top of the walls. We had to saw off 1 tab on top of both side walls to get roof panels to fit snug and slide locking clamps into place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dunk Looks great in the yard
My mother-in-law said it looked so cute she wanted to move- in and put curtains up!!! I put the building together myself but you do need two people to put the roof on and together, it's too hard to do by yourself unless you have a gigantic arm span??? Got my new cub cadet parked inside 42". I wouldn't try too much bigger of a lawn mower maybe 46". I had a concrete pad installed 8'x8' to put the building feels sturdy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MMMMMG More cons than pros Alpine
Only one pro...it looks good. Windows are hard to assemble...if you tape the rubber in place they assemble pretty good. Lay it on a table to put them in. The shed walls are tight and square on the 4 bottom corners because of the fit in the floor tabs. The top 4 corners are not square at all, there is nothing to keep them in place. The doors will not close and I am guessing it is because of this flaw in the design. The left door handle hangs over the edge of the door so you can not close the right door as it hits the latch. The D ring in the inside of the left door at the top is not mounted in the right spot or the D ring is not the correct size. You have to take it off or it will hit the top of the door frame so the door will not close. We have to lift both doors and close them at the same time, pushing and slamming them to get them closed. The whole shed moves so we figure it will fall apart soon. The tabs will snap and screws will come loose. Our base is level and square all the way around. Suncast tried to blame us for not having a good base. When you ask for help they want pictures sent to them but I have not received their email with the address to send them to. Save yourself time and money and put up a wood one and side it if you want maintenance free. We spent all this money on this shed that will fall down and then have to buy a wood one.
