Questions & Answers


do any of the windows open?

Asked by shelly June 25, 2015

Yes they all do

Can this be built on a concrete slab, without using the plywood floor?

Asked by Goatlady August 19, 2017

The sides are supposed to screw down to the floor, so you might compromise sturdiness a little.

Is there a roof vent? I am concerned about it getting too hot in the summer. Also is the poly roof durable?

Asked by Jule7511 September 30, 2017

There is no roof vent but all 6 of the windows open and let air flow through. The polycarbonate roof panels appear to be the same quality that are on my a greenhouse which has been up since 2005 with little deterioration.

Are the flower boxes included?

Asked by JSuds April 8, 2017

Yes, they are included.

Are there any windows on the opposite side of the shed?

Asked by broozersnooze September 4, 2015

Hi, The windows are on the front and side of the shed. There are no windows on the back wall.

Does Home Depot have an Installation option?

Asked by Darla May 30, 2016

Hi Darla, No installation option from Home Depot. Finding someone willing to tackle this project was the hard part for me. I hired a helper and did it myself. I am a woman with no building experience but the instructions are clear and easy to follow. My helper drills as I lay out the next step to do. We are a great team and it is fun to do.

Can we purchase this already put together?

Asked by sheppster007 June 25, 2015

Hi, It comes in pieces and the company or Home Depot does not install the product.

Does the shed come with the materials for the inside shelves around sides?

Asked by Gabrielle June 21, 2018

Yes, it does. They're sturdy, though there are gaps in the planks. You can choose the height if you run the legs to the frame rather than the floor.

What is the thickness of the walls, the boards themselves? Also would items stored in the shed be...

Asked by Lisa March 9, 2018

Siding is about 3/8" thick. The plastic portion of the roof could be broken in but could be replaced by 1/2" plywood if the snow load was low.

May I have a new question to you ?

Asked by Jane January 11, 2016

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot, Jane. We do not carry a Sunshed in that size. You will need to speak to a specialist in your local Home Depot store to see what special order options are available. We We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

We had a great experience! The design is great and very neatly put together, and the package came with all of the pieces, clearly labelled, and decent instructions. The shed now feels solid and is very handsome to look at. We put it up just under a month ago, and have been enjoying it since. The delivery was a little more problematic, though we were in a pretty tricky place to deliver to. We had a bit of trouble putting together the roof panels without anywhere flat to lay everything out, but this was the trickiest part. It took us quite a while longer than the indicated time to put together, even with friends coming to help one day--3 days at least, plus a bit of fiddling afterward with the trim and bench. I would also say that the shed would really benefit from some good caulking. Caulk for the seams is not included, only for the windows, and we have a little water seeping in where we didn't caulk enough under the trim, but that should be easy to fix. It's common to have problems with the instructions and with having all the pieces with these kinds of kit, but we had no problems with either this time. There are assembly videos on YouTube from Outdoor Living Today and we benefited from sitting and watching those before we began, though it was a little nerdy of us to do so. Overall we are really pleased with it! The cedar is of course beautiful, and even in midwinter it can get warm in there with the abundant windows. We like all of the fittings and the windowboxes and are glad we chose this shed.

Cute cedar shed
Customer review from logo
Unfortunately the driver couldn't get the palette out of the truck. This did mean hand unloading which I don't recommend as parts can be mislaid and the package is no longer weatherproof. OLT do provide good customer service but getting replacement pieces is a lengthy process. The construction was better than average but the quality of some of the framing is questionable - warps and multiple ratty edges which makes it a challenge to get a straight wall or flat floor. No single ridge support - uses mending plates for packing reasons so I'll be interested to see if it sags. Go and buy a ton of silicone sealer - you'll need it because of the warps and the 8 windows. The shelves and window boxes are a nice touch. I think its essential to seal it with ? oil based sealer as mine is beginning to wear after a few weeks of West Coast weather.

Delivery was in a compact palette. Construction took around 3 days but was fairly straightforward.

Arrived in excellent condition. Instructions are easy to follow… all 100 steps. It helps to make a copy, especially it you have a helper (which you need for the sides and the roof). Most of the product is made of cedar and the “deck” preservative I am putting on the shed looks top notch. The people I communicated with at the company in British Columbia were friendly are very helpful.

I'm not an advanced builder and the final product looks very good.. My husband and I took 3-4 afternoons to put together. It was great having all the measurements and cuts done. The directions were a little lacking here and there and not all the parts came labeled. But very pleased so far.

The shed is darling in appearance, but the construction is questionable; irregularities are planned for by covering with “plates”, and I have little confidence in its longevity given among other things fascia is nailed to the side of plywood. It took days to complete, not 8 hours!

Overall I’m quite pleased with the shed. Some parts did not fit properly and were difficult to put together, but was able to work around for a good result.
