Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NWEtta Exactly what we were looking for!
We were looking for a good resin shed (because we don't want to have to paint or reseal every year) that came in a kit and that two people could assemble. It is attractive enough and isn't an eyesore in our yard. It went up fairly quickly with two people--about 5 hours. BUT that does not include preparing the slab or foundation prior to assembly. Plan time for that separately and follow the guidance--it must be level for the shed to be installed properly. The guys who put this up for us discovered they had a pocket of air (even after they did all sorts of leveling and tamping with a machine) and had to quickly add more rock to ensure the floor wouldn't crack or cave in. Once they got past that it was smooth sailing with only a few exceptions: 1) There is a small but important part (sky light plug) that goes in the roof to keep water out and you want to make sure you put it on when it tells you to--that almost got missed and would've been a pain to disassemble to install; 2) The guys had a rock foundation that had a piece of treated wood that actually blocked the doors from opening (ugh!)--so they had to trim it back and reseal that piece of wood. Avoid that in advance by just making sure your base is level AND not recessed too far. They also said they should've read the instructions an extra time and inventoried & set out the parts ahead of time so they'd know what they were looking for and it would've saved time. We've had high winds and plenty of rain since assembling and so far so good. We haven't had leakage and it is providing the storage flexibility we were looking for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chris402 good shed for the $$$
Have an exacto knife handy the molds need to be trimmed. Instructions are easy to read. Open the boxes and do a good inventory. I did this my myself and only has part was building a level surface for the shed to sit on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wecandothis So, the shed is up...
My great neighbor and I tackled the shed-building today and took 5 hours total, of which 45 minutes was drinking water during breaks in the 90 degree weather. Good thing I did not try this on my own. Would have been nearly impossible. Our advice: Read the instructions well; we both didn't see the wall supports and had to take off 4 roof panels to get them in afterward. Roof panels were no problem however, so not too bad of an install. Of course, we did have a nice concrete, level foundation to work on. Will see how this lasts in the California high desert.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by iana so far so good
We just put it together today, looks good. It was two of us and it took us about 5 hours with building a wood base. Instruction is very clear. We got extra help with finishing the roof, i would recommend an extra person, its kind of tricky to snap the roof panels to the sky light. Going to add couple anchors to the floor. We live in new orleans, so weather get pretty bad here. So will see. So far pleased with this shed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robin Sturdier and More Durable than expected
The shed was easily assembled in most parts by two people, with four people working to install the roof. We installed the shed on a level portion of an asphalt driveway, and did not anchor the base to the ground. That night we experienced 60-80 mph winds with no damage or adverse effect to the still empty shed. We are pleased and more than a little surprised.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Linekin Very decent storage shed
We put this together in an afternoon. It requires a nice big place for staging. We created a foundation using pavers. Mostly flat - required shimming to square things up. Some of the picture instructions were confusing, but we figured it out. Very happy with the capacity of the shed. Seems to be tight enough to keep the weather out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Do not buy if you live where it snows
I live in the NorthEast and bought this from Home Depot. The very first winter I had it the roof caved in. I went to HD and they said I had to contact the manufacturer. I contacted US Leisure and they told me they don't cover issues from snow... Really? I live where it snows. You shouldn't sell them here. They did say I could purchase the replacements parts. No thank you. It will just happen again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handywoman Nice shed!
We wanted to be able to hold "garage sales", but we don't have a garage. I needed something that will protect our sale items from the elements, while being easy to open up for daily business and close down again at night. I am an experienced carpenter and I could have built a shed from scratch; but I'm also a single mom of four and didn't have to time to build from scratch. So I searched for a reasonably priced shed kit that would be easy to put together.
This shed fit the bill perfectly. I spent about half a day leveling a spot for it, and building a basic wood deck for it to go on. The next day, three of my kids, ages 7 to 15, helped me put the shed itself together. It went like clockwork, and we had it done in less than 5 hours! The instructions were easy to follow. The shed pieces are lightweight, and easy for even kids to handle. The kids would hold the panels in place, while I screwed them together. The kids could even help with putting on the roof panels.
There were a few very minor issues, such as having to cut out bits of plastic that was covering some of the openings for screws, etc. But that was simple to remedy. We also came up one short on the smaller screws and had an extra of the longest screws---but I just went and got a replacement screw for a few cents.
The shed looks awesome in our yard. We love the skylight and the windows that open to let air thru. It has rained heavily, and there are NO leaks at all (just shut the windows to keep rain from blowing in if it's windy). The 8x10 size is adequate for our needs. In future we can use it for storage if we want to (instead of for garage sales). My son thinks it would be fun to set it up as his own private hang-out.
