Rated 5 out of 5Â by Midnightchicken For the price you can't beat this product
I bought this shed and the lumber to build a platform on an uneven back yard. I personally found the instructions very easy to follow and was able to assemble by myself in just under 7 hours on a Saturday afternoon. I did read most of the reviews before purchasing and I did plan on using my whole weekend to complete the project and in a way I was bummed it took only a day as my wife put me to work cleaning on the other day ;). I did manage to almost cut a finger off but that was due to an unsteady ladder. It has rained a few times over the last week that it has been standing and no leaks.
So to all the people that gave this a bad review you should have paid more attention to the instructions or not hire shady "contractors" to assemble it for you. :)

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Al900 buy lots of caulking
Pros: inexpensive, attractive, interior 6ft high at the middle
Cons: my roof leaks
I assembled my shed using the supplied washers on all fasteners. The shed comes with weather stripping tape to seal the roof beam. I probably didn't seal the seam well enough as that part of the build comes towards the end of many long hours of work and I was tired and working stretched out on a ladder. I just sprayed my roof with a hose and the main seam leaks like crazy. I would strongly recommend using a good amount of caulking along the top of the roof seam instead of the tape. I found it difficult to reach far enough in to install and seal the last roof panel (and I'm 6' tall). I suggest using a 2x4 to temporarily brace under the beam to the ground if you need to lean out onto the roof.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tre11 What a deal!!
I must say that I am surprised to see so many people state that it was difficult to assemble, cheap, etc etc. I'm not sure what is expected for the price, but trust me when I say, I am completely satisfied. Is it a as sturdy as a fully framed house? Come on now don't set your expectations so high. However, if you are the least bit handy with tools, and can read/comprehend at a 5th grade level, you should be able to put this together with relative ease. There were a couple more difficult screws to get in as the holes weren't exactly lined up, but not enough to complain. There were some marks on the a few of the pieces that occurred during shipping, but again, come on, for the price what do you expect. They weren't bad enough to complain or even worry about. In regards to the pieces being "easily bent", um yeah, its thin aluminum not 2 inch steel tubing and 1/2 inch galvanized steel plates. Don't go all Shrek or Hacksaw Jim Duggan on it and you'll be fine. Overall, I am very pleased with what I got. It met my expectations, does exactly what I need it to do, and looks pretty nice (see the pictures for yourself and note that no photoshop was used in the production of these photos). The doors are not the smoothest sliding doors, but again, please leave the planet of Melmac (google Alf if you need some help understanding), bring your expectations back down to reality and you'll smile every time you open them. Please, don't let the negative reviews scare you away. On the other hand, if you have high expectations, be afraid, be very afraid and go hire a contractor to build you a mini version of Fort Know and spend more than just a couple hundred bucks! In addition to the shed I spent about $20 in sand and $40 for plywood flooring. I used the flooring kit that is included and guess what, I have a floor. A solid one at that!! So, under $300 bucks for a decent sized shed that works as a shed with all the features of a shed and will last for, well who knows how long anything will actually last, I think its absolutely worth it. Good luck and happy storage.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JPNES Very cheap material, but for the price it makes sense.
It was really hard to assemble it. You have to do this with help of another person. Takes 5-7 hours so be ready, i did my best to hurry and still took for ever. Actually divided my time into two days. All the parts are so easy to bend so you have to always be careful. Almost none of the holes aligned right and had to use force, you can tell these parts are machine made by bulk, which is why they are not all straight. But in the end it came out great and instead of anchoring it down to the concrete I placed 3/4" plywood as the floor and believe me that shed is not going anywhere lol.i used power drills and pliers to do this job.

For the price you're not going to find anything close to the value. I feel you need to modify a few things when they don't come together as well as it should. This is a project. If you have built a ikea dresser you will be able to figure this out. I added clear coat of paint to help with rust in the future and added. I just hate that brown color so quick paint job make a big difference. I would probably buy another if I need one in the future. I used the base to sturdy up the walls as seen in the pic. It really helped make the walls really sturdy.
