Rated 4 out of 5Â by JulieB Good Product--Company Needs an Overhaul
This shed is sturdy and will no doubt stand up to the copious amounts of rain we get in the Northwest. !!!It would by no means stand up to snow!!! I was expecting missing parts when I got the shipment because of the reviews (thank you!). However, it was still disappointing to wait the five extra days before being able to put the shed together. The Shelter Logic Company was plenty accommodating in sending out the missing parts. They are obviously way too familiar with the situation. Imagine the money they could save if they had someone, say, count the pieces before they boxed them up and shipped them out!
Anyway, it was easy enough to assemble, though time-consuming, and except for a few minor design flaws--there are bolts sticking our where the fabric can run over them and tear, and the fabric is not much thicker than a tarp--I can't complain about the shed itself. It should last 5-10 years on the bed of gravel I put it on.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Donnie This shelter is what I ordered and I recieved what I wanted.
My wife and I put up this shelter in about 3 and a half hours. It was as complicated as you would expect. There were about a hundred poles that had to be bolted together and then the tarps over them. It helps to know how the ratcheting straps work before you start. And don't tighten the bolts too much or it will bend the poles. You will need a ladder, patience, and a second person to help hold the frame while you bolt everything together. The most important step is to remember to have a nice cold beer for when this project is completed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by njcurveball You need a friend or two or three before you start!
I read the instructions and assembled as directed. Reviewing the parts and the roof took about an hour. You can do that yourself. After that you need some help, two or three friends would be preferred.
A few of the pieces had the holes drilled in the wrong place. Shelterlogic sent out replacements quickly. The frame is the easy part. The 2 doors are going to take some work to get them right. The webbing will rip through them if done wrong. Or in my case if the pocket is not glued properly. Shelterlogic is sending a replacement.
To do the roof part correctly a broom would be helpful. That is my friends trick. You can even it out well with one. Expect to spend at least 3 hours on this and that is if you can get the augers in quickly. Each auger may take 10 minutes or more. Make sure you have the shed lined up well, but then you need to move the frame to do the augers.
Putting the pole through the bottom after you have assembled the frame is a royal pain. You need to undo each screw, put it through and redo. Then line it all up once again. The brackets fall and a perfect line to start will need to be redone over and over. Add another 30 minutes to do this right.
You also need to get the 30 inch augers. The 15 inch ones simply will not do the job. I would say 3 carpenters may be able to do this whole job in 2 hours. 3 normal people will take 3 to 4 hours, probably closer to 4.
The augers also can be secured with electrical ties for an extra tight fit.
2 weeks in and my unit has not moved with pretty decent winds so far. I am hoping it weathers the winter just as well.
You probably are not going to find a better shed for this price. The frame may outlast the other parts, it seems very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KenS Great additional storage
Received the storage shed much faster than they estimated. Shelter went up quickly I've built one before so I knew not to tighten all bolts until done. Very happy with unit. Started to fill it within two hours of starting assembly. Highly recommended for a quick shelter solution

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JonandS Great shed for the price
We have had this shed for a week now and we really enjoy it. It is perfect for storing our yard tools such as lawn mowers and wheel barrels. It has gone through one rain storm and everything was still nice and dry. So far, so good!
