I bought 2 of these Arrow 8' x 6' metal sheds, and they are very nice! Be aware that they are not simple assembly, and I got some excellent assemblers from the Pro Referral service at Home Depot.
I also had the assemblers build a wooden frame for the bottom, to sit above the ground. When completely built, I had the same folks seal every small opening from the inside, and now its tightly seal all around.
The purchase price for each metal shed, delivered to my home, about $350 each. The extra cost for assembly, building wooden frame, sealing unit, add about $550, so total cost's, about $1000 per shed.
What I like about these sheds, they metal roof sits at basically the same level as the fence around my yard. You can't even see them from the street. Also the brown color blends into the backyard wooden fence, you almost can't see them!
I liked the final results so much, that I bought 2 more to place on the other side of my back yard! They are now assembled, and they look and work great!
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the goods and services provided by Home Depot. That's my story, and hopefully it's helpful to you!

I'm in my 60's, got a bad hip, walk with a limp, sometimes with a cane, and I had no trouble building this shed.
The instructions are fine. You can download them before buying the shed and see for yourself.
Tools I recommend:
10 pc. Standard Combination Ignition Wrench Set, $14.99
11 pc. 6 pt. Standard 1/4 in.Socket Wrench Set, $14.99
I bought a powered screwdriver on the advice of this web site.
It was useful in tearing down the old shed, but not for installing the new one.
I used my variable-speed drill for the screws on the roof.
Despite bad weather, poor health, and working by myself, I finished in 18 man-hours, over 12 days.
It looks terrific. Worth all the effort.
The item was shipped on time and in perfect condition. One small hole in box. Now the fun part......

1. I opened up the box along dotted lines as recommended and removed and studied instructions.
2. I identified all parts and hardware, then laid them out in my garage in according to the steps of the instructions.
From there the real fun begun. I assembled the structure with the aid of my wife. It took about 10 hours. We spent 8 hours on a Saturday doing everything except the doors. Then assembled and hung the doors the next day, and also added some clear sealant and weather stripping on the inside to prevent water leakage.
***Pay attention to the angles and holes on instructions if your doubting which way to attach a part.
I went with 54 square feet of 12" x 12" pave stone foundation over paver sand for the 8' x 6' Shed.
