  • Assembles in under 4 hours, Sturdy once assembled, Looks great!
  • August 15, 2016

I needed a new shed to store my blower, mowers and outdoor tools. I didn't want to spend an entire weekend assembling it. This shed by Palram fits my needs and is surprisingly sturdy given it's construction method. The crate arrives and you'll take out all the aluminum bars, hardware and plastic panels. It feels really lightweight and the panels feel flimsy to start with. It doesn't seem like this is going to be sturdy at first, but that will soon change. No special tools are needed, just screwdrivers and a drill/driver. Assembly: Assembly starts with the floor made from thin flexible plastic and is in three pieces. It's strong, but thin. You'll start to screw the walls and uprights to this floor and as you do so it will feel very flimsy for the first four or so panels. Everything will be leaning to and fro. As you add more panels and aluminum uprights the walls begin to stiffen up on their own and the shed takes shape. By the time you start assembling the top rim of the walls and the doorway the shed has firmed up very nicely and doesn't feel so wobbly. After the walls comes the roof, which is made of the same poly panels and aluminum runners. The roof can be attached without a ladder, but it does help. The doors go on last and are each framed in aluminum and they do provide a latch that can be locked. I assembled this entire shed by myself in 3.5 hours. Skylight Feature: I really like the skylight style roof. It's black on the outside, but the panels allow the sun through so that the entire shed is bright inside, as if it had no roof. It's a really cool idea and works well. Sturdiness: During assembly the shed feels very wobbly and shaky. I was turned off big time because it felt cheap when I started. My attitude changed once completed. The aluminum frame stiffens up and the shed doesn't wobble or feel flimsy at all once assembled. Each panel is held in place by the runners and nothing comes loose and there are no gaps. We has a storm come through with 50mph winds the week after assembly and even with heavy rain the shed suffered no damage at all. It also showed no leaks from the rain. Storage Space: Storage inside is massive, you have 48 sq ft of floor space and so far I've managed to get three mowers, four lawn chairs, a 10hp snowblower a leaf blower and still have room to walk in. It's quite sufficient for storage. It would easily fit a riding lawn mower as well. Overall I was a bit frustrated in the beginning because this shed felt weak and sloppy, but that quickly faded as it was assembled and it became sturdy and attractive. I have plenty of space to store my stuff and the shed doesn't budge even in 50mph winds. It looks great and I'd recommend it.

Pros Durable, Easy to Assemble, Functional, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Sturdy, Vibrant Color

The shed showed up at our home on time for our weekend project. My wife and I were surprised to see two small boxes turn into a 6ft x12ft shed. The shed went together with minimal effort and a little patience. Upon finishing our project and filling with tools it snowed that evening. The shed delivered to our expectations with no leaks from the roof or floor. I was impressed with the strength and flexibility of the siding. The skylight roof has been great. I have plenty of light during the daylight hours to find my tools. I would recommend this shed to anyone looking for a storage space at their home.

I spent a great deal of time researching plastic sheds and am overall happy with this one. Here's my review of it: Pros -It can be assembled with ease on a level surface due to how light it is. Two people can finish putting it together in about 2-4 hours. -It is flexible and rigid, respectively because the shed is made out of thin vinyl but reinforced with metal bars. Once anchored, the shed won't move. I've subjected this to some heavy winds and rain and no issues yet. -This shed can surprisingly hold a lot of storage. I've got a push lawnmower, portable generator, snow shovels, rock salt, seat cushions, a swing awning, etc. I know that I can squeeze more into it. For those looking for motorcycle storage, this is definitely big enough. Cons -Since the vinyl walls in this shed are so thin, some folks may find that it's not secure enough to prevent theft, i.e. a thief cutting into the siding for entry. I counter this by saying that unless a thief knows your shed is built with thin vinyl, he/she would probably get into it using bolt cutters anyways. If you're really concerned, you could attach chicken wire or hardware cloth along the interior walls to make it harder to cut into your shed's walls. My opinion, this is not the kind of shed you'd put high-dollar items in. Expensive tools and equipment should be in a garage or workshop in your house. Tips -Plan out the area where you plan to put this shed and make sure it's level and is on some type of a platform, i.e. wood, gravel, etc. -Make sure this shed is put somewhere that doesn't break any local ordinances, i.e. size limitation of shed, placement of shed, and rodent infestation mitigation. -Put hardware cloth few feet in the ground around the shed. If you put the shed on a wooden platform over concrete, put hardware cloth between the platform and ground. This is crucial to prevent any rodents from making your shed their new home. -Anchor, anchor, and anchor! Since my floor mats curled up some, I went ahead and screwed this shed into its wooden platform more than the instructions called for. However, this shed is extremely light and it's absolutely imperative that you anchor the shed, or at least put heavy objects in it until you have the appropriate anchorage in it.

I was a little skeptical at first because the panels were thin but am very satisfied with the end result. You can not build this solely from the inside, you must give yourself workspace around the shed. I was able to build this with a friend and move it to where I needed. It has endured a few rain storms with no leaks and fit perfectly for my confined space. It has a lot of space to hold a ton of stuff.

I bought this product because it is polycarbonate, one of the toughest polymers on the market. It is also very light weight, and has the translucent roof. The roof has proven to be an excellent feature. Some of the angles were a little off at the roof line, but that may have been the result of distortion caused by the banding on the outside. I have had it up for a few weeks now, and it has stood through some torrential rains. Not a drop of water got in. I was impressed. Overall, this is a good product for getting a bunch of little clutter out of the garage.

  • Surprisingly well made little shed
  • November 16, 2015

We were looking for a plastic shed to go on the side of our house that was only 3 feet deep and around 7 feet tall, so we ordered the Palram 6x3 Skylight shed from the HD website. We were shocked when it arrived in only one large but skinny box and after opening it, we realized that polycarbonate is very thin and nothing like the walls of a typical plastic shed. We were skeptical of the quality but went ahead and put it together. The instructions recommend two people for assembly, but my husband put it together by himself in a few hours. The shed is very light weight but surprisingly durable once it is put together and the "skylight" roof is a nice feature. We had some high winds recently; the slits in the vents allowed for small leaves and dirt to blow in, but the shed held up well otherwise. So far we are happy with our purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a small shed.

I do recommend this 6ft. x 3ft. storage shed! Easily assembled by 2 of us. Instructions are thorough but must be followed exactly. Doors align but you might have to readjust the leveling to make them do so. Fits nicely near my backyard garden in sun-baked San Jose, California. Will buy the same brand again if the opportunity arises. My daughter says it looks adorable. PROS: Strong + thin walls give more useable interior space. Good ventilation. SkyLight has a pleasing translucency. CONS: If you plan to add a Palram brand matching wall shelf like I did, plan to install it before you attach the ceiling. Some of the attachment parts need to slide into the shed aluminum supports which cannot be easily accessed if the ceiling is already fastened.

  • Great shed
  • September 21, 2015

Shed shipped cross country without issues and was on time. When I saw the small box, I thought something had to be missing. The main reason I picked this shed over others was the size, and the amount of steel reinforcement. I have seen plastic sheds in hot climates with bowed distorted roofs over time. The panels are pretty thin, but the steel, and how everything is engineered fitting tight, makes its firm up nice. The fasteners are good quality. Country of origin is Israel, so no Chinese head stripping screws. The instructions are all pictures with great detail. I was able to assemble it by myself in shorts and flip flops in just over four hours. Should work out well to house the Harleys for the winter.

Pros Easy to Assemble, Great Instructions, Looks Great, Nice Design

  • Good final result - difficult assembly
  • August 07, 2015
  • Recommended Product

I like this shed - primarily because it is the exact size I needed, but assembly is not the easiest. Just finished assembly which took 4 evenings - about 1 1/2 hours each. Instructions are purely visual - no narrative. It pays to study each step before proceeding - as well as look ahead to see what each step is leading to. You also need to count out all the screws to identify them properly - suggestion to manufacturer is to package screws separately with part numbers on the bags. I found three manufacturing errors - not that uncommon in this type of DIY project. 1. #7699 floor part was not cut properly to fit into place - you will need a utility knife to cut away the plastic that does not allow it to fit into 7698. 2. #7959 is missing a pre-drilled hole - you will need a high speed drill bit to do this before attaching the #7965 roof bar in the middle. 3. Either the #7965 roof bars or the #7982 roof panels are manufactured wrong since sliding the panels into the bars proved to be the most difficult operation of the entire build. The were very tight and I had to use excessive force to get them in place - along with a rubber mallet. Once completed the shed looks good, seems a bit flimsy, but looks like it will hold up OK. Time will tell.

  • Good Looks, Ease of Assembly
  • August 18, 2016

I needed to put this shed in a space constricted location, there are very few on the market that fit. I organized the parts in cups to make identification easy. Assembly went well, definitely needed two people during the initial wall setup until two corners and partial side walls were up. Getting the roof panels installed took a little time too, mostly alignment or out of square issues with framework. With some work though I got it. No leaks and we have had some serious summer storms. The frame is stout but the panels are extremely thin and will not hold up to any normal abuse or impacts from jostling tools, the lawn mower. Frankly I am very surprised at the purchase price of the shed considering the fragile, flimsy walls. Because of how the roof is assembled I built this shed in the driveway. Four of us carried it to the final location. It is so light that two can easily carry, four were required because the design is flimsy until screwed down to a strong base.

Pros Easy to Assemble, Great Instructions, Looks Great Cons flimsy panels high cost
