The interior dimensions of this storage shed is 39.5"Hx52.5"Wx25.5"D. The dimensions in the description are approximate external dimensions. Be careful, especially if you are storing a generator that is 27" deep...
This product is perfect for keeping my trash out of the paws of Rocky Raccoon and family. That's way I purchased it. The folks at Home Depot unpacked the box to get it into my SUV. That was really appreciated. Thank you Home Depot. The only problem I had was with the instructions from Rubbermaid. Being a handywoman, I assumed it would be a piece of cake to put it together. And it would have been if the instructions provided by Rubbermaid were more clear when it comes to putting the 2 back panels together. I even called the customer service number on the instruction sheet to help me. The rep gave me instructions which sounded good on the phone but didn't work either. The problem was "sliding the 2 back pieces together." The instruction diagram indicated to push the two pieces together. That wasn't working. I called my neighbor. He did it in minutes. It seemed you had to lay both pieces down on the ground (which I did) but, instead of sliding the pieces together horizontally so you would push the pieces together, you needed to slide one piece UP into the other so the groves catch.
Once together the shed works like a charm and looks good too. It is well constructed and so easy to use. Hope these instructions help the next purchaser.

I have owned this shed for over 10 years. The Eastern Hurricane just ripped it apart yesterday.
The tab that holds the pad lock has ripped off the door due to the wind. I have been very pleased with this product, I use it to store my push lawnmower, hose and gas trimmer in it at my summer home. I plan on buying a new one this weekend. Everything I store in it has stayed dry too.
I purchased the product as an "Condo Association allowable" outdoor storage unit for my beach house. It warps easily in the sun causing misalignment of the door panels and roof consequently the doors fall off. It does not provide adequate protection from the elements, insects or animals as a result of the engineering issues. In fact, I have had to reinforce the door assembly with steel rods to keep the unit in tact.
I have always felt Rubbermaid was a reliable product, this has certainly changed my opinion. Suncast makes a similar product but a bit more expensive; given the choice I would buy the Suncast.
Easy to Assemble
Appearance, poorly engineered
The product is great. It is incredibly easy to assemble and looks nice. It would be nice if the shelf holder would accommodate a larger shelf. You are limited to a shelf about 8" wide. You will probably want to take a razor along some of the edges to clean up some sharp spots left behind in the molding process.
4 stars because its kind of pricey for a small molded plastic shed. Its almost a third the cost of getting a full size shed. However it looks like it will hold up well and perform its job.
Simple to assemble,pieces are large but click into place. Assembly is easier with 3 people, two to hold pieces at the right spot and the other to apply pressure so it clicks into place. Shed is plastic and it is very sturdy.
When the instructions said it would only take a few minutes to assemble this unit, I doubted it. So I checked my watch and got started. It was true, and I'm no handyman. The only thing that slowed me down was an occasional sip of coffee. I needed to protect a few summer items from this winter's snow, ice and sleet, but wanted to maintain easy access. Now that the storms are here... mission accomplished. This was a great buy and solved my problem perfectly. I may place another one underneath my deck, too, as it's completely weather-proof.

Fantastic and good-looking outdoor storage shed. Sturdy (although it felt a bit iffy as we were putting it together) and seems to be waterproof. Plenty of interior room and I like the 2 front doors. Didn't give it 5 stars because the metal rod that's supposed to keep the top up doesn't work very well at all!
