Excellent product and simple assembly. Watertight for chicken feed and bedding storage. Add a fender washer to secure the lock hasp in place more securely.

Sturdy
It was easy to assemble, I’m a 72 year old woman and I did it by myself in 2 hours. It’s perfect for what I need it for, my yard tools. Great product! Had a nice young man at Home Depot load it into my car for me and I just cut the box open at home and unloaded piece by piece.

    Great little shed! Went together pretty easily, only took about half an hour. It’s the perfect size for my grill.

    Perfect for water softener
    I have an exterior water softener on my house. I got this to protect that from the sun and exposure. Since my water softener was already plumbed in and partially buried, I needed to cut the shed around it. It works well. The shed does feel a little flimsy (even before cutting). The side walls don't have a lot of support when the doors are open and the lid has to be pressed down to use the lock. It also has to be 2 inches from the wall for the lid to open.

      Yet another generator shed...
      Instructions weren't very clear, had to watch a You-Tube video for clarification on some points. After that it went together pretty easy. It's NOT a wood or metal shed, so don't expect it to be. It's sturdy enough for my use.

        Good Size, Lighter Material than Expected
        The size is about right for my push mower. It goes together very fast, it helps to have two people but can be done with one. Loss of one star because the material was lighter than I expected. I am just not sure how well it will hold up to use and weather. I will try to remember to update again when i have more history with it.

        Good for a place with no wind, rain or snow.
        I live in the Northeast and thisjunk didn't last two years. I built the proper platform, as per their instructions, and I kept the shed secured. The problem is that the plastic is not strong enough to hold the hinge screws. Overtime, each big storm loosened the front door hinges to that point that they blew off from the hinges. Eventually the top blew off and all panels are junk since the hinge screw holes are ripped in the plastic.

          Great generator shed
          I cannot speak to using this to store trash or garden supplies, but perfect size for portable generator. I am adding some noise and vibration support, as well as adding ventilation, so will also be adding a little extra support.

            Small Storage Shed by Suncast
            I just bought this resin horizontal shed to house my patio cushions. I thought that it was sturdy enough to keep them from getting rained on and for easy access. I still have additional room. My husband put the shed together and it was relatively easy. He says the only thing was a little frustrating were visualizing the actual diagrams. Suggestions would be a short video on assembly. I would recommend this shed for light stuff and not heavy bulky items.

                Great Generator Shed
                Protects and secures the generator from the elements and theft. With the gable vent, exhaust fan and exhaust hose allows the close the shed and substantially quiet the generator. To allow for a quiet night sleep.

                  The right size for my needs. A little tricky to connect the sides to the back (angling them) and the doors to the sides (hinges), but ultimately it took my son and me about 90 minutes. You definitely need two people. It would be nice if they attached some of the parts that you need to assemble in advance, but I understand that this is not the way they do things any more. All in all, the right item at the right price.

                    Unit arrived well packaged, the instructions were very clear, how to put it together. My only complaint was that I wasn't able to completely screw in the four larger screws that go into the door hinges. I'm happy with this shed, overall, it will serve it's purpose for us as a storage shed on the deck of our apartment.

                    This product is made so cheap. We’ve had it 3 months and it is falling apart. I purchased this because I had another one that lasted 17 years that was high quality and sturdy. Suncoast has really gone down in quality.

                      Good shed for the money
                      I bought this shed to store the cushions from my patio furniture. First off, have a sharp utility knife to trim the extra plastic from the molding process that is around any parts that connect together. This will help make assembly much easier. The two pieces that make up the back wall are only screwed to get her into the plastic, I drilled these all the way through and used a one inch bolt,washer and nut.to secure them. They are much more sturdy now. This shed is not difficult to assemble,just follow the instructions and don't read any of the one star reviews, I don't know what they bought , because this shed is not too bad.

                        I bought this to house my pool pump and equipment. Couldn't be happier! Easy set up, good instuctions. Took about 30 Minutes. Make sure to build it on some level patio block. We assembled in the sun on a warm day and didn't even need a mallet - just snapped together easily. Lid props up like a Car hood, nice feature. Love the hinge design on the doors - easily rotate the metal bracket to install over the posts - Read the directions! Metal Hinges and option to add a shelf (see picture) are also a plus which increased our storage capacity. I chose Suncast because I have had several of their storage benches that have weathered the heat of summer and cold of winter for years and they are still looking good and clean up easily.

                        Very nice shed. All the resin parts are sturdy. They could have done a little better job with the lid hinges and the lid lock. The lid lock part would only keep out a small child. None the less I recommend this shed. Best to build a flat treated base and attach it to the concrete and screw the shed floor to the wood frame.

                        We purchased a unit 6 years ago which is still in excellent condition. We use it to store lawn equipment and potting soil. Because of that positive experience, we purchased another one to store outdoor furniture cushions. Assembly is straight forward, with decent printed instructions. My husband build platforms of treated pine 2x4s to set the sheds on, bolted down for added sturdiness. Good product, good value.

                        Great storage unit for my cottage generator. Opening the doors and lid allow plenty of ventilation for the generator to run. The locking mechanism is not adequate. Secured the generator with a heavy duty chain and lock. Very satisfied so far! Protecting my costly investment.

                        Having bought this product one would have expected easy assembly in an hour. Five hours later and some modification after having to beat the living daylights out of the thing to get the sides to stay in place and some modification to the molded hinges, door latch and roof, I finally finished a project that I started at 9 A.M. around 5 O'clock in the afternoon. Think I'm making this up, after getting the sides to finally stay in place using the rubber mallet on just about all the sliding joints I was finally able to put in place the plastic screws to hold the panels in place. Okay you think we would have made some good progress here as the sides were all standing, should finish up soon. Then came time to hang the doors on their hinges. ALL FOUR OF THE DOOR HINGES WERE NOT PROPERLY CUT CLEAR AFTER THE MOLDING PROCESS. Now for a $250 product made in the USA that should have cleared some kind of inspection before being packaged and sold, I almost wish I had bought one made in China. The door hinges were never cut clear all the way around after coming out of the mold. I wound up having to take the doors to the shop and use a Dremel tool with a cutting blade to free up all four hinges to clean them out all the way around so the hinges hang and properly and swing like a normal door. After all this isn't rocket science. This took up the better part of an other hour getting things together for what should have been a simple project that shows assembly using ONE SCREWDRIVER on the outside of the box. Another piece of work on this plastic junk box is the slide in door latch on the right side door panel. What a Gem this thing is. Instructions show it sliding right in and snapping in place.... NOT !!! I was sitting outside fighting with the thing for another 1/2 hour having to whittle the door latch down with a buck knife to make it fit into the door latch housing before it would go into place. How cool is that ? Oh and before you're all done, expect to have some fun with the roof, the Half Hinges are a real blast playing with those. Then they give you this nice long 47" ich hunk of metal to attach on the inside of the roof with no reason as to why it goes there and a poor picture as to exactly as to where it should be mounted or how exactly it goes on the roof panel. That said after playing with it for another 1/2 hour or more taking it on and off and flipping it around several more times. I came to the conclusion that this hunk of metal as it's called LOWER SUPPORT BRACKET "J" is there to weigh the roof down so it likely doesn't blow away should the wind catch to top is my best guess. To top it off I just down loaded the latest version of the assembly manual and they don't even show this 47" inch piece of metal lower support bracket "J" on the Roof Assembly anymore. So apparently I'm not the only one to have a few choice words about the Door Hinges, Lower Support Bracket "J" , the Door Latch or the overall manufacturing of this plastic junk box. I have no idea what is going on with this company but I would never buy another thing made by Suncast Corporation of Batavia Illinois even if they sold it to me for 1/2 the retail price. Don't get me wrong here, I love Home Depot and I'm not blaming the Home Depot for these problems either. Everything I've said here is absolutely the truth and if I could post more pictures I would. Now that it's assembled I like the way it looks but I would highly recommend you're looking around at other companies to buy from before buying any plastic molded product made by Suncast. At this point it's assembled and even if the company were to send me $100 back for my purchase for the time I had to spend on assembly, I still don't think I'd be happy with them. If I could give Suncast a negative star -1 I would have posted it. Word to the wise just "STAY AWAY."

                          I bought this shed 2 weeks ago to house my Carrier whole House 15KW generator. The original generator housing has been repaired so many times in the past 12 years, I needed something large enough to enclose it. This shed fits like a glove. I made 6 cutouts and installed return air grille covers to allow air ventilation and the exhaust heat to escape. I have installed 3 16"x16" and 3 6"x10" grilles and bent the exhaust vent grills on the generator straight out vs directing heat down.

                          Easy to put together - instructions recommend two people but I did it myself in about an hour. Almost idiot proof; there is one stage where you can make a mistake. Just read the instructions first and you will be fine. As for tools, on screwdriver is all you really need. I did not need a mallet, hand pressure was fine. Once completed, the shed is surprisingly strong and rugged. Really impressed. It is being used as a garbage bin in front of my house. We'll see how it weathers in the sun.

                          I previously purchased a similar shed for half the price. It was harder to assemble and took much longer to assemble. Also the other shed was not as sturdy. This shed was a joy to put together and the instructions were clear to understand. It is sturdy and the pieces went together easily. From now on I will look to Suncast for my outdoor needs.

                          Have bought Suncast products many time in the past. Easy to assemble, weather resistant and last a long time. A little pricey for plastic however Resin strong built to last. Wash it down with pressure washer yearly. Great products... Although designed for trash cans I use mine as a enclosure for my portable grill.
