Rated 4 out of 5Â by Deanna Good Storage Shed Slightly Difficult to Assemble
Though we purchased the shed a few months ago, finally had a window of time to put it together this past weekend. The quality, once built, is very nice considering that this is a plastic resin structure and not a custom wooden one; it is worth the price paid and should do well for storing all of my garden and yard tools and supplies.
That being said, the only negative thing I can say about the shed is that some phases of assembly did not go as smoothly as they should have. The first instance came during pre-assembly when we had to install the "windows" in the door panels; attempting to hold the gasket, window sheet and window frame in place from one side while screwing it onto the door panel from the other was somewhat frustrating. Frankly, if I were to have designed this section, a snap together feature would have been preferred. Also, the predrilled holes were misaligned in the window sheets, leaving us wondering if we could get it put together without breaking the windows. Another feature of the shed that proved annoying was the plastic pins that fasten the panels to each other; one had to be very careful when pushing them into place because they would sometimes lose the "head" of the pin if forced into their right position. Lastly, the roof was was the biggest installation challenge. The panels had both a slide up and a slide down arrow (neither of which were helpful) and the way that the shed roof was designed did not make it easy at all to slide into place as instructions indicated. We finally gave up and snapped the roof into place by wiggling the panels just enough to force the tabs into the proper spots on the panel.
The assembly was absolutely a two-person job, and frankly, at times could have been three or four people. But again, the product does seem to be worth it on price and quality; I'm very pleased with it at this point and will hopefully continue to be as I use it (Frankly, I would hate to have to assemble another one any time soon!)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Spatter Great solution for making room in the garage!
The shed fits perfectly where I needed it to and made it possible to clear some of the clutter out of my garage such as the lawn mower and other yard tools. As with most purchases that require assembly, you need to be able to work through inconsistencies in the product design. For example, two of the cross bars didn't line up with the manufacturers wholes for the screws. No problem, the shed is plastic so I just screwed it in where it belonged. The only confusing part of the instructions was installing the roof panels. It looks like they slide and lock in place when they actually have to snap in place by pulling down on them. As far as storage hooks inside, it was easy to position hooks where I needed them. The base the instructions recommend to build uses 2x6 boards which is higher than I wanted so I used 4x4's. I can definitely see buying a bigger one in the future for storing a lot of the seasonal stuff that we have in bins.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by VirtualValerie Review update after 3 1/2 years outside
The shed remained relatively watertight. We did add some fluffy insulation caulk around the top of the walls. The doorknobs are the weakest link on the entire shed. After 3 years they are terribly faded and two have broken. This is in Florida sun however. The roof buckled ever so slightly, but not unsightly. We are moving now, and just got done disassembling 3 of them. It takes about 1 hour to disassemble each shed, and the beauty is the windows will already be done when we go to our next house. I am still very pleased with my purchase and would recommend. Would have given 5 stars if the door handles hadn't broken.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ginger Turned out great- a nice addition to the yard.
It was harder to set up than expected, but when it was done it looked great. I saw the 7' x 10' version at CostCo but that was too big for our space so this was a good alternative. It holds an electric mower, lots of tools, and some feed bins with room to spare.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Docjunk Nice Looking, Durable, Manageable Assembly
Compared to other sheds, this Suncast seemed more durable with its double-wall construction. Seamless delivery from Home Depot, although box was in pretty rough condition when it arrived. I took the time to build a pressure-treated wood base to keep it a few inches off the concrete patio on our side yard. Assembly was manageable for one person (although two would have made it easier), with the trickiest part for me being the window assembly on the doors.
The shed looks great and there is good head clearance. It's held up good through its first few rain storms. Have not installed the accessories (purchased separately) yet, but found that an old free-standing. light gauge steel, 5-shelf unit I had fit perfectly against one of the side walls. The only thing I am troubled with is the doors - the second door (with upper and lower bolts) is difficult to close and the upper bolt doesn't clear the door frame without some force. The other door is OK but the front latch rubs with the hardware on the other door when closing. I'll try adjusting it again when it warms up around here a bit more.
