Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joel Very Good Shed for the Money
Shed for the money is very good. The base is a little flimsy so you really need to have it on a slab or on wood. I built mine on 4x4's with a 3/4" plywood deck and it is plenty strong enough. You really need to take the time and do the base right though and make sure it is level. If your base isn't level your doors are not going to close right. Instructions were not bad but from time to time you have to look at the parts list to make sure you have the right part. With two people it took around 4 hours to build the shed after the base was done. It would be difficult to do the job alone. Overall I am very happy with the purchase.

We bought our Sutton Shed one evening, I built the base the next morning and my wife and I erected it that afternoon. She was more of the brains behind the project simply because she actually reads the directions! If you follow the instructions step by step, it is really pretty easy. It was very windy that day which was somewhat of a hinderance but that was really our only obstacle and nothing to do with the shed. The shed is very sturdy and attractive. We live in North Texas and have experienced some really strong storms with high winds this spring. We have had no water leaks and the shed has weathered the strong winds with no problem. We are very satisfied with our new shed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by richie259 Well designed, easy to build, looks pretty great!
I have to say, I was a little hesitant to buy this shed given the amount of prep work and site construction you need to do first. But after a little bit of work (and some additional lumber and hardware costs), I'm proud to say I installed this great looking shed and I'm not disappointed!
Make sure you really plan out the project and do some research. You can get the instructions on Home Depot's website before you ever buy it, and that will definitely help you. It took me a few weekends to plan it out and build the foundation, but I put the actual shed together in about 4 hours (with a second person).
The instructions are very good, and you will have leftover hardware. The hardest part was getting the roof on, but even that didn't take too long. I highly recommend this shed. I wish I had gotten it when it was on sale earlier this summer, especially with the extra cost I wasn't expecting for the foundation, but it was still worth it to solve a much needed storage problem in our yard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Good quality and easy assembly
Very happy with this product it exceeded my expectations. I am 6ft tall and can enter without ducking. The assembly and instructions were pretty good some of the parts were not identified but the pictures and description helped identify them. My assembly time was around 5 hours. I did need help to hold the sides in the assembly process as the directions mentioned. All parts are interlocking and the bracing is just where needed. I am a mechanical engineer and have found this shed well designed and executed.

I was worried about the size of this project and being able to assemble the shed on my own. It turned out to be a fun project with help needed only when putting the walls up. The quality is great and the instructions were easy to follow. Wallah! Backyard shed in a jiffy. I'm pretty sure I should have my own "How to Assemble a Shed Reality Show"

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ShedMan Great Shed!
This shed is sturdy and holds a good amount of storage. I ended up laying a concrete foundation as opposed to a wood foundation. The concrete work took a full day and then several days to cure, but I think in the long run will pay off. The only reason I gave 4 stars as opposed to 5 is because the instructions were pretty confusing at times and referenced bag #'s that didn't even exist. I had to guess on screws/bolts a few times. Other than that, this shed is a quality product and I would highly recommend. Home Depot was awesome! They were a big help in loading the truck, both with concrete (36 80lb bags) and the shed itself.

I can count on one hand the number of online product reviews I've made in my lifetime. Every so often, however, one stumbles upon a product worthy of praise. In this case, I am happy to unconditionally recommend this Suncast backyard shed. If this particular model is indicative of all Suncast offerings, then I highly commend the company for offering a well-designed, well-manufactured, well-packaged and well-priced 'Made in the USA' product.
This shed was a joy to assemble. Each and every component lined up perfectly, in respect to measurements and pre-drilled holes. Seriously, someone actually put committed thought into this design. The finished product is extremely heavy duty, far-superior to other brands' vinyl or metal offerings and is as rock solid as any stick-built structure I've encountered. Also, I can appreciate the attention to detail incorporated into this product -- for example, quality hardware such as neatly-packaged aluminum (i.e., rust-proof) handles and some stainless steel fasteners (again, corrosion-resistant) speaks volumes about Suncast.
In our case, we've employed our Suncast shed into a perfect "undercover" chicken coop to house the wife's and children's newly-gentrified "pets." While I posit our cost of eggs to exceed $40/dozen, I can honestly say that the Suncast shed is a great purchase and a testament to the re-invigoration of American manufacturing.

Amazing precision in this kit. Every screw hole lined up without a fight. My wife and I could have set it up in one day, we're into not overdoing it. No sharp edges on any metallic components, good tight fit on all plastic components. The instructions are clear, or easily figured out, in all cases. The finished shed seems to be very robust. Would really be good to get more information on what can, or can't, be done with hanging stuff on the walls, etc. It was our first shed build, and now I'd like to do it again.
