Pros: not too expensive, reasonably sturdy, one person can set it up with only a little mechanical ability, lots of headroom Cons: sheet metal is quite thin (though comparable with anything else out there), building instructions are sometimes annoyingly vague, some parts missing, sliding doors too short and not very durable (the sliding parts are all plastic). This was my first shed. I looked at wood, plastic and painted metal but settled on vinyl coated. More expensive than painted metal but much cheaper than plastic or wood. With metal, you don't have to worry about insect infestation or warping/sun damage (for the most part). I had a concrete slab already set up from a previous shed so preparing the base for me was easy. Everything comes packed in a 300 lbs 6' X 4' box, strapped to a pallet. It's packed pretty close to the order in which you assemble it (though there are some annoying exceptions). It took me a total of 24 hrs to put the whole thing up. They say to do steps 6 to the end all at once but you can get away with 6 - 9, 10 -14, 16 - 18 at separate times ****IF THERE'S NOT TOO MUCH WIND FORECAST****. If there's going to be anything more than a 5-6 mph wind, you'll want to do the roof (11 - 16) all at once. They say don't build at all if the wind is blowing and this is especially true if you're putting it together yourself. Even a slight breeze can really complicate putting the wall panels and roof gables on. Stuff blows over or can bend. Steps 1-5 according to the instructions, are prep work and can be done before starting to erect the building. I would add to that the portion of step 11 where you assemble the roof gables and the door assembly part of step 17. Knock all of that out before you begin to erect the shed and it will save you time. If you're doing it by yourself, you'll need a pair of vice-grips or something similar for the bolts. Sometimes you can hold the nut and tighten the bolt with two hands but a lot of the time you can't reach both. Speaking of which, when attaching the wall or roof panels, use the minimum number of screws to attach the panel to the frame (like one if you can get away with it). Then secure all of the bolts. The reason for this is that the nuts for many of the bolts are between the cross braces and the panels and are a HUGE pain to get to if the panel is securely fastened to the braces. If you have help, it's not so bad but by yourself, you'll have to resort to taping bolts through the holes and then using fingertips to try and get the nut on. They also suggest using an electric screwdriver to save time. I tried and wasn't too happy with it. Even with the clutch dialed all the way back, it regularly stripped the holes. Not only that but it had a tendency to skip out of the screw head and scratch the vinyl coating. I would recommend a decent ratcheting screwdriver. Yes, your hands and forearms get sore but it's only a few turns to seat the screws and bolts and much easier to handle. Another note, though the matching holes are reasonably forgiving, you really need to make sure the building base is square. The method they suggest of measuring the diagonals worked fine for me. If they are within a half inch you should be good to go. That being said there are still a few places where you're attaching 4 pieces together and getting all the holes to align is agony. The worst for me was the final panels of the roof. You have to attach two panels and two pieces of roof trim to the cross braces. I finally used a nail to angle through and get the holes to reasonably align. Finally, for sealing, they supply what looked to me like plain old duct tape. At least, I hope that's what it was because they didn't give me enough and I finished it with duct tape. Not too sure how well that's going to hold up, time will tell. I'm also going to seal the base to the concrete with Lexal before anchoring it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the result. It's a good looking building and seems as sturdy as anything built out of 1/16" sheet metal can be. There's a ton of room inside (at least for me) and the extra headroom is nice too. Their quality control leaves something to be desired. I had extra braces but too few washers and acorn nuts. You can email them and they'll send replacements but I'll probably go to the hardware store instead. As for longevity, only time will tellRead More
Better set aside WAY more time than the 6 hrs the manual suggests and THAT is with at least one extra pair of hands. It seemed as if there were thousands of tiny screws and bolts to attach the pieces to one another and in a very particular way and sequence. When finished, it turned out just fine. Thankfully the product comes with a great many extra screws, nuts, bolts, etc. since you are bound to lose some and/or need a few extras to keep things tight.Read More
A very nice shed, especially for the price. Overstock was about $50 less than our local home improvement stores. My husband and I managed to put this together, without ending up in an argument. It's a tedious process, so don't under-estimate the time necessary to complete the project. You'll need at least 8 to 10 hours. If you live in Florida, be sure to purchase the tie-down system too; your Building Department is going to require it, before they'll sign off on your permit. Mine didn't mention that when the permit was issued. But all in all, it's nice getting the riding mower and all of the lawn stuff out of the garage.Read More
