It comes with a floor, but I would suggest a level concrete base to set it on. That's what I did and it looks very nice!!

This shed has foundation requirements that effect it's warranty. Basically requires a wood or concrete foundation that follow the manufactures foundation instructions or the Warranty becomes voided.
Other sheds I've looked such as Keter allow you to install on level ground. I'm not certain of the reason, could be part of it's design requires a perfectly flat foundation. There was a youtube video where a person installed a plastic 8 x 10 shed onto a cement area next to a garage, the cement wasn't perfectly level with a slight slope for drainage purposes. The slight slope created all sorts of problems with the gaps in shed door, roof, floor, etc.
Installing on level ground potentially causes future problems if the ground ever sinks. If the ground doesn't sink then there would be no problem.
Some sheds may be more susceptible to being out of level than others because of their design. Read Less

Answer: 
The unit I bought required the skylights. You will have to contact the vendor to see is a roof is available without the skylights. I think they are well worth it. They provide adequate light & haven't leaked in heavy rain. I did use a small bead of caulk during the installation. I think the skylights add to the pleasant view of the shed.

The Suncast Tremont model BMS8700 (8 by 7) is in the gray color family that includes vanilla sides, stoney doors, and slate roof. The Suncast Brookland model BMS7720 (7 by 7), also selling at Home Depot, is in the brown color family that includes sand sides, chocolate doors, and a slate roof. These are almost the same size, too.

Normally the floor doesn't require to be anchored, especially if you have heavy permanent objects on the floor. The wind resistance is rated at up to 65 MPH, which is an estimate. I've read of plastic sheds where the walls have separated from the floor in more extreme high winds. Roofs potentially can become damaged in more extreme winds. In these situations anchoring only secures the floor mat and not the entire shed. You could possibly first anchor the floor mat and then install additional support where the walls are secured to the floor and where the roof is secured to the walls.
Anchoring is an additional precaution if there's not alot of weight kept on the floor pad.
Some people have added tie downs which are straps that fit over the roof and are anchored to the ground. I think most people won't have any problems unless winds in their exceed the estimated rating of 65 mph and the shed is mostly exposed and not near other buildings. Read Less

There are places indicated in the shed floor for attaching to the cement or wood platform, however, not all of the places molded into the floor may have to be used according to instructions I received from Suncast (They say only the four corners need to be attached to the wood platform).
ADDITIONAL ANCHORING may be required by local building codes, especially if you are using a wood platform. I found ground anchors available in lengths from 15-30" that are "screwed" into the ground and attached to the wood platform by various means. I believe these should be used to help secure the wood platform to the ground. Read Less

Manuals are available for review in the Info & Guides box next to Product Overview at the Home Depot site for this model. We encourage you to become familiar with the assembly and anchoring of the shed by the reviewing the manual.
For securing to a 4 inch thick concrete pad, you will need masonry fasteners and a masonry drill bit. To secure to a wood platform- construction plans of which are also included in the manual on pages 11 and 12- you will use ¼ inch by 2 inch long lag screws with washers. Your best bet would be to consult your local Home Depot retailer for help in determining the best anchoring method for your particular installation.
We appreciate your concerns, Ken, and thank you for your interest in Suncast products.

Tremont 7 ft. 1-3/4 in. x 8 ft. 4-1/2 in. Resin Storage Shed is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Satisfied Feel shed is fairly durable for material of product. Felt once I looked at it and read instructions that floors/ footing would have to be made stronger to Make it stronger. Feel the construction could be more solid showing less gaping for price of product. Product was very easy to install and instructions easy to follow. Foundation expense was more than expected, thought supplies for footing and stronger flooring should have been included in the price of shed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with shed. I'm 77 years old with a very bad shoulder and not too great a back. I assembled it by myself for the most part without any problems. Got some help with the roof. Parts went together good. Only suggestion is that bags of screws, nuts and bolts be labeled the same way that they are in the directions. Not impossible to find them, but it would be easier. The only reason that I gave it all 4's on ratings is that it hasn't experienced a Maine winter yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Really glad we purchased this shed. Looks great & makes the garage a lot less messy. As others have said, longest part of install is leveling ground and preparing a foundation. We used pea gravel, sand & concrete pavers for this purpose. Once that was done, it took my husband & two college-age sons around 3 hours to put up the actual shed. Lots of room inside & stays dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage Shed This shed provides a good deal of storage space and doesn't take up a lot of room. The shed is easy to put together with 2 people. The biggest time and effort is in getting a good foundation ready before you start. A bit pricey but when compared to many others this is a very good buy and the size is perfect for a backyard storage unit. Doesn't look cheap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Shed but could use refinement The shed is assembled and I am pleased with it. It did not get a 5 for three reasons: 1. The English instructions had major repition making me think I did not have all the pieces. I ended up using the Spanish instructions which matched the hardware I had. 2. The screws were to be tightened buy not over tightened. In some places the screws would lock in, but in others the screw spun lossely no matter how carefully you turned. 3. The screen vent cover was a simple, cheap screen door mesh. I would have preferred, and will attempt to install, an aluminum mesh or some other rigid material. Other than this, I expect the shed to last a good number of years. :)

I'm a 56 yr young female DIY'er. The directions indicate two people are needed to assemble but if you are mechanically inclined, one person can assemble. Just have to use a little ingenuity like two ladders when putting the roof together. Installed a pet door to the left door which bolts down to keep closed. Pet door depth a little deeper than door but used cardboard on inside to keep secure. Set up on a wood foundation on a patio. Accessories are limited though. Since it's only been up for a few days, no downside to it.

Although at some points tedious, it was relatively easy to put together. The instructions were well laid out. My uncle and I put it together in about 2 hours and 15 minutes, not including the foundation, which took longer. It IS resin, so there is some give in the walls, but that should be expected. It seems to be well made and after several days of constant rain and wind, the inside remains bone-dry. My wife also thinks it's "cute" compared to my neighbor's shed, and isn't that what matters?...
