Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DogMama Nice looking, roomy, sturdy
We got this shed for the local dog park. We liked the combination of wooden sides for nice appearance with resin base and top for resistance to weathering, This meant a large, very heavy box and a significant assembly and staining time (5+ hours) even with two experienced handymen, but it was worth it - the shed looks really good and we think it will last a long time.
If you can, use a drill rather than a screwdriver to put in the screws to save a lot of time. Don't try to assemble this without at least two people.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mickey Cheap quality wood
We bought the shed and had it delivered. Immediately upon opening I could tell the wood was of poor quality. It feels very similar to balsa wood, not something you would want to use on an outdoor shed. While assembling I found many pieces not cut evenly and some already broken. Applying light pressure can break the wood. At some point through the assembly one of the corners pieces snapped and all the screws holding it together ripped through the wood. These screws were not the ones we put in but the ones pre installed. That was the last straw, we packed it up and returned it. For the price it is not worth all of the work of assembly, fixing poorly done cuts, and unmatched pieces. Then having to stain the entire thing. You are basically just paying for a pile of cheap precut wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shawnwoodkins Cedar and Resin Vertical Shed, So Nice Moved It Inside!
This shed was more then I expected from the very start. Once I open the box and looked at the door hardware I realized that this makes those other plastic shed look cheap. with room for two shelves inside this is more than enough space for any garden projects that need to be done. With the hybrid plastic bottom and top there should be no leaks or fear of the wood panels ever wroughting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cyclegirl This product was exactly what we were looking for for our Florida pool deck.
Both products were fairly easy to put together by myself and my partner. Shed took about 3 hrs and deck box took about 1 hr. We used a clear urethane finish to show off the cedar wood and are very happy with the results

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TCga easy to assembly fast and Free shipping !!!
Went together very easy about an hour with screw gun (lots of screws) looks much better than the plastic ones they sell in store. Just hope it holds up like the resin ones do. Should include shelves thats the only down side so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jrch Aesthetics / Strength Trade-off...
So far, so good, with this shed.
It took my wife and I about 3 hours to put it together with a power drill. It is entirely cedar planks except for the roof, floor, and hardware. It smells nice, and I believe it will age well. It will take a stain and/or weather seal too - something we're debating.
The wood is quite soft, so you certainly want to use a low setting on your drill or you will split the planks. You need to be very careful during assembly for the individual pieces are fragile relative to the usual 3/4" pine usually used in unassembled furniture. One slip of your foot and you'll break something.
I've fit my (larger than most) Honda lawn mower into it, so far. I plan to put in some hooks for other lawn equipment and tools. Also, a shelf to get unsightly jugs of weed killers and bug sprays out of my garage.
One more benefit of wood is that I plan to reinforce the walls with additional lumber to install custom shelves, racks, etc. You cannot easily do this with resin.
All in all, this item is a good trade-off between the strength of resin alternatives for the benefit of a much more pleasing, natural wood style. This will age well, while a resin container will only look worse with time.
A five star review would command a bit more strength; with thicker planks and metal reinforcements. However, at this price point, I think it's an excellent value for the do-it-yourself backyard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MakoMagic 42 Page Instruction manual - a bit of challenge
The assembled product is beautiful. I applied 2 coats of a weather-resistant urethane since this will be located on my porch and will be exposed to afternoon sun.
Two people are necessary at certain points of the assembly process. We took on the 1st 20 pages the first day, and finished the next day with few problems. I would encourage those involved in the assembly to mark all the pieces with associated letters assigned to them in the manual before starting the assembly process. Two electric screwdrivers will speed the process along quickly.
This cedar shed is a good value, looks good and will last
if properly maintained for the environment it is used in.
