      Answer This Question

      A:  If properly installed according to the assembly manual, it should not leak. Staining and sealing as well as caulking will further ensure that the unit is sealed. The manufacturer will happily discuss once we contact you before we ship.

          Exactly as I Expected
          Some things to note. This item ships in two boxes. We elected ship to store and took advantage of curbside pickup. When we got home, we realized the box was “2 of 2”. A quick couple of conversations with CS and they confirmed box “1 of 2” was on its way. Picked it up a couple of days later and the box was a mess. I unpacked and labeled every item to make sure all pieces were accounted for. Then I took the advice of one reviewer and treated all 6 sides of every board—I used linseed. My husband and I assembled over a two-day period so the staining process took about five hours and the assembly took another eight, but we really were in no rush. Really pleased with the finished product. Drilling a million pilot holes as the instructions recommended is a must. As are power tools—used a drill and cordless screwdriver. We found the instructions to be relatively easy to follow with ample nails/screws provided. So happy with how it turned out!

            Let me start by saying, the finished product is really great. That said, the shed comes in two boxes and I want to say 4962 individual pieces. I'm not averse to some assembly, but for the price they could have ponied up a bit more packing material and done some of the assembly at point of manufacture (prime example, they assembled the roof about 40%, all outside shingles and trim need to be attached "to avoid damage during shipping"). They also have a page that defines each individual piece's dimensions, instead of taking the the extra effort of labeling any of them - so find the 2.5 x .5 x 36 piece, not be confused with the 2.5 x .5 x 35 piece or any of the several angled 2.5 x .5 x 36.25 pieces??!! Aside from that frustration, you need to be very careful with some of the smaller pieces - be sure you drill pilot holes and don't be tempted to just let the screws do the work, as splitting WILL happen. As a mea culpa, I will concede that I did this project solo. Not sure how well this will age, but this was during the "social distancing" of 2020, so didn't want to put myself or anyone else at risk to hold things while drilled and so forth - for best results; have a helper. If you like the attached picture, I used Olympic WaterGuard 1 gal. Harvest Gold Transparent Wood Stain and Sealer to get that color.

              Just the right size for small backyard
              Good quality kit. Fairly easy to build if you are handy. Obviously not very big, but good for a small townhouse backyard. Fits a small electric 14" lawnmower and many garden tools.

              Well made kit - took about 6 hours labor (diyourselfer). Take your time and test fit / read directions. Quality components provided plus extra screws and nails. Of course, interior dimensions not 4x2 but adequate - would have liked to have one slightly larger in same shape. Price is fair - look for it on sale!

              Perfect Garden Shed <3
              Overall: Great, sturdy Product, I am totally happy! Fast S&H & nothing was damaged. Assembly: You do need someone who is "handyman-ish". Although the step by step instructions are very helpful, it's somewhat vague on aligning the seams on the base. It does requires drilling, hammering, sealant & a helper. Advice: Make sure you use ALL the trim & sealant as instructed. Don't be tempted to skip! This will ensure no leaks when it rains & reinforces the overall structure. Issues: There is enough lead-way to adjust the front doors with the flange if it's not exact. But follow the instructions & pictures to align sides/roof. The interior shelves were about 1/4" too short & would fall through. We had to use another piece of wood for additional support. Total assembly time: 3 hrs

              Good storage customizable.
              My husband assembled over weekend and recommends directions are read first and seal outside surfaces before assembly. We customized with kitchen cart for lower shelves and work space, used wire shelf for light items, and attached original shelves on doors with screw hooks for hanging tools. Looks good and unobtrusive in back yard.

                Don't be intimidated . . .
                When the two flat-pack arrived, I was somewhat intimidated. Before assembly, I went and also bought a 8amp Milwaukee torque screwdriver and cordless power drill. I am good at directions, but wasn't sure about fitting all the pieces together. The instructions said 4-6 hours. I was careful and precise, and had the entire shed built in barely 3 hours. It looks great, and even though it's just a simple-looking garden shed, it has gotten many compliments. It is far better looking than a plastic shed, and since it is in a visible spot near my garden, attractiveness was important. I'm very pleased with the look, the finish, and the convenience of the shed. And I'm just a bit smug in telling others that I "built it myself." A perfect quality product for display and storage.

                Home Depot is ripping you off....
                This shed is 20% cheaper if you buy direct from manufacturer. Just saying. I found it to be of reasonable quality, with poor instructions for assembly and for some odd reason, rough sawn cedar only on the sides. Well worth the $900 charged on company website, but not the $1100 HD is charging.

                  This storage shed is excellent. Just buy it. I considered buying it for over a year, finally pulled the trigger, and I have no regrets. We have a small outdoor storage space where we are constrained in width, and this small shed fits just right. I am happily replacing an old plastic cabinet with this attractive cedar shed. It arrived in two boxes, and it was well packaged and contained all the correct materials. We built a foundation using four pavers, one for each foot, and some large gravel. We leveled the pavers on the gravel and confirmed it was level again after we built the floor of the shed. Then we proceeded to build the rest of the shed, which took two people who are handy (but not carpenters) to put it together in about 8 hours over two days. We downloaded instructions from the website and watched the instructional video to learn how to put it together. Some of the instructions were a little difficult to follow, but we muddled through. The project went quickly until the roof, which was not entirely shingled. We had to attach about 30% of the shingles ourselves, and this was a new skill to us, so it took a long time to do it right. The only other problem arose toward the end when we were putting the final decorative boards on the front door and the sides. Several of these were not cut precisely, so we had to shave down the edges ourselves. If you have a table saw, this could be done easily, but we do not. We used a planer, which worked fine, but it slowed us down. Now the pieces fit together like a puzzle. The hardware is really nice and the color contrast looks good against the cedar. The entire piece is very attractive, smells good, and appears to be made of good quality cedar. We plan to seal it with Thomson's water seal as suggested by some of the other reviewers because it will be exposed to rain and snow. We are really delighted with this shed because it looks good, has useful shelves and a tall space for shovels and rakes, and it is just the right size for our outdoor storage space. It is positioned next to our garden, and I think it adds a rustic, nice-looking element to the space.
