It took me about four days of moderate effort to build the 11 X 13.5 Lifetime Storage Shed. It is the third Lifetime shed I now have in my yard. They provide all the hardware and directions required to easily assemble the shed and when complete, it's waterproof and requires no maintenance. The only drawback was the delivery process. The shed comes in 4 large boxes, each over 250 lbs. They were delivered in a truck without a lift gate and had to be manhandled into the garage by hand dolly. The delivery company would not deliver them to the yard where the building was to be assembled. Overall, I would recommend this shed to anyone who has the skills and tools to assemble it. You can preview the assembly instructions at the Lifetime website.
Assembly is time consuming and definitely requires more than one person for most of it unlike the exaggerated reviews of some buyers. Especially if you don't do this often which I would imagine most people don't. When built it is sturdy but when storing thus before assembling, be careful, the plastic bends easily. Also keep in mind the additional cost for lumbar or concrete for the foundation.
