We had a fabric and wood frame Shelter/Shed that we stored potting materials and such in, it died. This kit was terrific, small enough to do preassemble things inside the house and carry pieces out to assemble and the finished product is terrific. I bought several of the wall rack assemblies, the over head rack seems too small and too low to be useful. A person could easily add a window. I own a lot of Suncast Outdoor products, this is the biggest but they have all been great products, you can trust Suncast.

As others have noted - building the base takes longer and is more challenging than putting the shed up. Nothing hard really, but you'll want to make sure your measurements are right and it will need to be fairly level.
I worked with my brother in-law for about 5 hours on mine, we were moving at a relaxed pace and stopped for 45 minutes to grill some burgers too. So 4 - 5 hours should be plenty of time for 2 people for assembly. For the most part it's easy and all the pieces fit together pretty well. The roof is the most challenging bit but if you go slow and make sure everything is lined up right you will be fine.
Overall the shed looks great and thus far mine has withstood several heavy rainstorms and has stayed dry inside. It's a nice size, fits my push mower and a couple bikes with room to spare for the patio furniture later this Fall.
One last thing - the product description says it's 7 foot 3 inches by 7 foot 4.5 inches which isn't accurate. The base you build is 84" X 85 1/4" which is 7 foot by 7 foot 1 1/4 inches.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vfrdave Gravel foundation prepped in 2hrs, shed assembled in 4 hours with ladder & helper
Needed a place to store four bicycles, hitch rack carrier, garden tools, buckets, hoses & anything else that wouldn't fit in our trailer in northern Wisconsin...this waterproof unit fit our needs perfectly.
Instead of spending half a day building a wood platform, we used a one cubic yard composite mixture of sand and fine gravel, in a 25%/75% ratio, then tamped it down to flat, using a 3' level to check until flat. One yard of mixture works well because it allows for a four inch foundation layer plus about one foot apron beyond the shed base (see picture below).
Flooring is tight enough as assembled to keep out moisture without need for caulking, either between the two floor pieces or between floor and walls. However, to ensure the interior stayed dry, we made the following moisture abatement enhancements: 1) caulked the roof to wall, and wall to wall seams, using a 5.5 oz tube of clear DAP Kwik Seal kitchen & bath adhesive, and 2) installing door sweeps on door bottoms to prevent "bounce back" water from collecting under door edges during hard rains.
Small screened louvered vents on front & back headers provide just enough airflow to keep shed interior relatively dry without allowing rain/snow to enter.

Very easy to put together. The hardest thing about this was having a foundation for it. I recommend using a cordless drill for all the screws, but be careful and do not over tighten! This shed is the perfect size for my kids bikes, outside toys and sports equipment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dostradamus This shed looks really good
I just put this shed together and I really like it. It did take me all day with breaks but once I was done I was very pleased with the look. I read reviews before purchasing and putting it together. You definitely want to have a level surface to build the shed on. I used a wood foundation of 2x4s since I won't be parking a riding mower in there. Overall I'm pleased with it and now need to get accessories to hang up my weed eater and other gard n tools.
I definitely recommend this for those who don't need a massive shade and just want to clear their garage is some clutter.

Having stick built tool sheds before I decided to buy a pre fab this time to avoid the cost and labor of doing it again, especially at my age 67. I also chose to use patio block for the base in stead of a deck made from 2 x 6.
After preparing the ground, laying my patio block, my shed arrived, two huge boxes and a lot of pieces. I took an inventory and once satisfied I had all the pieces I started assembling my shed.
6 hours later, I was done. Except for some help with the roof panels that require someone pressing down from the outside while screws are put in from underneath in the inside, I assembled the entire thing on my own.
The directions were easy to follow and once the pre assembly was completed, everything just snapped into place quite easily.
I did some extra landscape around to finish it off nicely and I have to say, this was a fun project to do and cost wise, very affordable. This product is well designed and should last for years to come.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ash VERY GOOD SHED WITH ROOM FOR ENHANCEMENTS
Very Good quality shed, looks good in my yard. Some room for enhancements though:
1- Anchoring the shed kind of felt on my own. Staff at HD were not much of a help. Installed ground anchors and routed the anchoring wires through the metal frame supporting the roof. Wires push against the top of resin walls. Can not tighten wires much as it would destort wall. And as it is it Does not feel very sturdy. Design should be enhanced to allow good anchoring options.
2- The shed has double doors with left door having locks to the floor and ceiling from the inside. The right door locks to the left door on outside. This is not switchable. I wish it were since my installation site lends itself to better/frequent use of left door (Most of the time one would be using one door, right? and I have a small tree close to the front right corner that I did not want to cut down). Left-handed people would also have the ability to use left door easily with their left hand if the locks/hardware were switchable.
3- I got the newer model with side window. Very nice as it lets more daylight in. Window is on the right side and that is where I wanted it in my installation site. Not sure if it is switchable to the other side. Nothing in the instructions on that. I'd imagine some ppl may want to have it on the other side depending on where in your yard you install the shed. If it is not switchable, some may end up with the window hiden from sight on the far side by the yeard fence.
4- Some screws attaching the left side of the roof to the right side feel loose and do not tighten enough.
