This is a very nice looking refuse can storage shed. It would be better as a general storage shed. Only one of my 3 refuse containers would fit- the smallest one. The other two containers, recycling and green waste were too tall. I had to modify the shed to add 2 inches in height in order for it to work. The shed's wood is very light balsa-like and damages easily.. Hardware was standard could be better. Instruction were usable but could be better. I had to use a water proof stain on the wood to make sure it wouldn't soak up water. I strongly recommend, if you do purchase this that you use a waterproof stain. Overall, a nice looking shed with good design but the quality of the materials is lacking.
I did not put this together myself , my gardenere did it for me. But it is pretty flimsy. A good last minute fix for what i needed, but im going to have to stabilize it and most likely stain it to keep it from getting damaged too soon. Looks good though!
The design is thoughtful, top opening for bringing your waste from the house to the outside can, and front opening for moving the cans to the curb on garbage day. Size is adequate for both the garbage and the recycle cans. It assembled in a few hours, and looks great! We put a couple of metal fish on the front to honor the local salmon. Get lots of compliments!
We set up the shed next to the house, and even added 2x4's in the base to help support the sides. One gust of wind picked it up and smashed it. The sides were cracked and it could not be put back together. I considered buying sheets of plywood to reinforce the whole structure, but the sides were too split and the whole thing would have to be rebuilt. I contacted Overstock. They gave me to warranty information and the contact information to Leisure Solutions. I found that Leisure Solutions does not deal with the public, only retailers. Finally, I was able to ship it back to Overstock who refunded my money. I can not recommend this product to be used outdoors. It is a nice idea; poorly executed! If you have a use for it inside, it might work for you. Otherwise, save yourself the brain damage.
