Purchased on sale. Needed a place for outdoor storage during winter. The screws are not labeled well and you pretty much have to guess which ones are which, but if you're savvy you'll get it.
Panels all go together well, you may have to just twist, bend or push on a few to get them to match up. A rubber mallet is very useful. However don't bang too hard as the plastic will start to bend.
On the last roof panel we got 2 ladders on each side and had 2 people hold a 2x4 and press downward on the final roof peak. This allowed the last panels' clip to be slid into place.
We used 4 pallets as a base and screwed the floor onto the pallets. It is overall quite sturdy!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Motorcyclist Easy installation. No leaks. Great for my motorcycle!
The shed went up easily with the help of my wife and brother. We built it on a flat brick patio. Bag of screws was labeled incorrectly as others have noticed. But, the rest of the parts were labeled nicely. The hardest part for me was constructing the roof trellis support because some of the screw holes did not line up correctly without some tweaking and you had to use a vice grip or another person with a wrench to hold the other side's bolt in place so that you could screw everything in tightly.

Bought this product to use as a well shed. Had to cut a couple sections out of the floor panels to fit them around the wellhead, but otherwise assembled as described in the instructions. Very easy to put together in 3-4 hours with two people. Instructions are clear, and interlocking design of the parts is very clever and effective. Ground/foundation preparation is important, spend a little extra time building a foundation frame or pouring a pad for best results, but we were able to level the bare ground with a shovel & rake good enough to work in about 30-min. Absolutely great product for basic storage or protection from the elements. A little flimsy, but not beyond what you'd expect for a plastic shed. Long-term durability yet to be seen, but initial impressions are very good.

bought it online and picked it up at the store in less than 45 minutes. 2 employees loaded it for me. Both boxes fit in my mid-sized Dakota. I spent about an hour doing the pre-assembly stuff by myself in the basement with just a screwdriver, pliers, and a 7/16 rachet. Easy instructions to follow. Next day I leveled the stones in my driveway where it was going to sit and i placed the floor(3 pieces) and screwed them together. Next I did the walls by myself and the wall pieces went up and screwed together in about 45 minutes. Next came the trusses(pre-assembled the night before) and they fell into place with ease and screwed into place. The next day came the roof panels(6 pieces). Still by myself, they came into place with ease until the final panel. You really need 2 people for this last panel for easy install, but I wanted it done then so i found a way to do it. It was going to rain the next day so it had to get done. Everything fit as it should and it is weather tight. No water the next day after 2" of rain and 45 mph wind gust. Again, the whole assebly was by myself with 4 everyday tools and total time from pre-assembly to lock on the doors took about 5 hours. Very pleased so far and would recommend.

Sierra Suncast 6x8 shed went together in about 3 hours with two men doing the work. Instructions are like 40 pages long, huh, just look at picture and use common sense most directions are "snap in place tap with mallet run in 4 screws". Not complicated.When using the dodad tool included install the big plastic screws from top to bottom not the other way round per instructions. The bigger head screws for starting in plastic and the smaller head screws for starting in metal, forget the MM, NN nonesense made me crazy too. Definitly rain tight we just had a monsoon rain with typhoon winds bending 3 feet diameter trees in half with no water in the shed.

I bought this shed after reading the reviews. Our instruction book was missing from package but we downloaded and printed it out.
With instructions and proper tools we still had difficulties putting up the roof. Overall everything went well just did not anticipate spending more time on the roof. Some of our roof panels were warped possibly that is why was harder for us but we managed.
Shed is nice to have just need a good sturdy platform, good tools to balance flooring and walls. Instructions were easy to follow but the screw bags were mislabeled. You do need two people to help out especially with the roof.
Shed is recommended.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by regularguywhowantsashed All good except........ROOF PERSISTENTLY LEAKS
Shed was overall simple.to put.together, and directions easy to follow. You will need two people to erect at least to hold panels together while inserting screws/fasteners. Design seems good, however, had major issues with the roof leaking. Called suncast, who were very courteous. They sent another entire placement roof, which took a week to receive. I then had to remove the whole original roof and replace with all new roof panels, and STILL have leak issue w/ new roof. Suncast still being cooperative with trying to resolve....final resolution yet to be found. Been a month since shed erected/leak observed, w/o being able to utilize.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ruzzbo Quick shed to buy & set up!!
Everything went together easy except for the last 2 panels of the roof, I needed help for them. I built the wooden base, preassembled everything I could and installed the shed myself except for the last 2 roof panels. My wife had to climb onto the roof and hold the top down for the final fasteners. 4 hours to assemble not counting preassembly or building the base.
Good price and a reasonable unit.
The instructions are good, the screws were marked incorrectly for some locations, no big deal!!
When we looked online for this unit at Home Depot, it said this unit was not available, we called our locale store and they had 3 units available!! They need to do this better !!
