Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lifes2eze Excellent Shed!
We bought our Sutton Shed one evening, I built the base the next morning and my wife and I erected it that afternoon. She was more of the brains behind the project simply because she actually reads the directions! If you follow the instructions step by step, it is really pretty easy. It was very windy that day which was somewhat of a hinderance but that was really our only obstacle and nothing to do with the shed. The shed is very sturdy and attractive. We live in North Texas and have experienced some really strong storms with high winds this spring. We have had no water leaks and the shed has weathered the strong winds with no problem. We are very satisfied with our new shed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Robert Good quality and easy assembly
Very happy with this product it exceeded my expectations. I am 6ft tall and can enter without ducking. The assembly and instructions were pretty good some of the parts were not identified but the pictures and description helped identify them. My assembly time was around 5 hours. I did need help to hold the sides in the assembly process as the directions mentioned. All parts are interlocking and the bracing is just where needed. I am a mechanical engineer and have found this shed well designed and executed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 14DMTNS Highly impressed
I can count on one hand the number of online product reviews I've made in my lifetime. Every so often, however, one stumbles upon a product worthy of praise. In this case, I am happy to unconditionally recommend this Suncast backyard shed. If this particular model is indicative of all Suncast offerings, then I highly commend the company for offering a well-designed, well-manufactured, well-packaged and well-priced 'Made in the USA' product.
This shed was a joy to assemble. Each and every component lined up perfectly, in respect to measurements and pre-drilled holes. Seriously, someone actually put committed thought into this design. The finished product is extremely heavy duty, far-superior to other brands' vinyl or metal offerings and is as rock solid as any stick-built structure I've encountered. Also, I can appreciate the attention to detail incorporated into this product -- for example, quality hardware such as neatly-packaged aluminum (i.e., rust-proof) handles and some stainless steel fasteners (again, corrosion-resistant) speaks volumes about Suncast.
In our case, we've employed our Suncast shed into a perfect "undercover" chicken coop to house the wife's and children's newly-gentrified "pets." While I posit our cost of eggs to exceed $40/dozen, I can honestly say that the Suncast shed is a great purchase and a testament to the re-invigoration of American manufacturing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ShedMan Great Shed!
This shed is sturdy and holds a good amount of storage. I ended up laying a concrete foundation as opposed to a wood foundation. The concrete work took a full day and then several days to cure, but I think in the long run will pay off. The only reason I gave 4 stars as opposed to 5 is because the instructions were pretty confusing at times and referenced bag #'s that didn't even exist. I had to guess on screws/bolts a few times. Other than that, this shed is a quality product and I would highly recommend. Home Depot was awesome! They were a big help in loading the truck, both with concrete (36 80lb bags) and the shed itself.

When buying this shed I read ALL the reviews on this site and there are more good ones than bad ones so we went for it. I am glad we did, we love this shed.
We had the shed delivered to our driveway, was so much easier than trying to get it in a truck and drive home. It comes in two big boxes.
We first had to build a base, in which we went with the wood base the manual that came with the shed suggested. This is the only thing we would change in the instruction manual. It says to use 2x6s but we could easily have used 2x4s with no issues. Just make sure you do use treated wood. All the wood did costs us $150, so when you do buy this shed keep in mind you will have extra costs.... even if you do another type base like cement or pavers, you will have more costs than just the shed.
MAKE SURE THE BASE IS LEVEL... no matter what type of base you use, the base has to be level or you will screw up the whole thing. We added some sand and gravel under our base to help with drainage.
Putting the shed together was easy. In fact my husband did it all by himself in a few hours. The shed Floor does attach to the base you build. You will have to buy the lag nuts to bolt it down and if you do a cement base you will have to buy the proper ones for cement. But there are spots in the floor to screw the flooring down. The walls then just slide into place. It took probably 30 mins to get the walls up and attached to each other. He said the roof was a bit tricky to do by himself, I wasn't home to help him, but he got the panels into place. The Doors were just as easy. He did do a bit of prep the day before, like putting the doors together, putting the roof support together, anything that had to be put together before hand he did. He had no problem with the instructions.
We love it. Its perfect size for what we need, out door storage- lawnmower, weed eater, bicycles, etc.
Our shed came with all the parts, nothing was missing and there was nothing extra. The doors open and close fine- due to us having a very level base. No water leaking in and is standing strong- we have had some wicked storms come thru the last few weeks and the shed has withstand them.
