Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JGJG Good value and quality
I had been looking at shed options for my wife's gardening tools, and when this shed went on sale I took a chance. Wasn't sure about a plastic shed, but it is sturdy enough for light duty storage. Plan on several hours to assemble the shed (not counting site and foundation prep), and as with other posts I would recommend making sure you have all the parts before starting. The actual shed assembly floor, walls and roof all go together pretty quickly if your base is square, level and you follow the instructions. Overall I am very pleased with the finished product, and not having to paint or stain it. Plenty of room for the mower, wheel barrow etc... it Looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1945Mouton A great shed and a fabulous value!
I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this shed. At $549, it also represents one of the best shed values. The shed came in two large boxes, delivered by my local Home Depot branch in excellent condition. There were some pre-assembly sections to be completed, all of which were pretty simple and easy. Some folks have complained that they couldn't keep the door windows' weather stripping in place. The trick is to make sure you don't stretch the weather stripping when you push them into the grooves. The quality and fit of the various panels were excellent. I did not encounter a single fit problem. The panels pretty much snapped into place from the base. The instructions were clear and extra hardware were provided. A tip on the hardware and screws - keep them in the bags that they came in, do not open them all and pour them into a big bowl. Each bag is numbered and when you are not sure which screw or bolt is called for, refer to the bag number and you'll know for sure you are using the right part. An impact driver will also speed up the job a lot. Just be sure to pulse drive the screws so as not to strip the holes.
I worked by myself for the first 3 hours, then helped by my wife during the last 2. The only time an extra person is really needed (although easier with 2) is during the roof panel installation. And BTW, you will only really need the second person to help install the last of 4 roof panels, as the first 3 can be done entirely form the inside since part of roof will still be open.
The door were the final pieces to be installed. And I have to say that the door latch and handles were metal and quite sturdy. The finished shed looked great and sturdy. This is indeed one of the best sheds around for the money. And by chance, a large thunderstorm system came through two nights after the shed was installed. The next morning, the interior of the shed was dry as a bone.

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"

Did much research online reading reviews of sheds. Decided on this one. Really surprised at how easy it was to put together. The instructions flowed very well and I put it together by myself and about three hours. The hardest part by far was creating the foundation I spent at least a full day doing that. As you can see by my photo I built mine on the hill I poured concrete footers and then use concrete blocks to level the wooden foundation. I recommend the shed so far it seems really well made. by the way it has rained terribly for three days now with no leaks.

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.

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.
