I must say I am very pleased with both the actual purchasing of this shed and its construction . . . the shipping was about 5 times faster than quoted- mere days from order placement! . . . there's lots of pieces and mostly all are well labeled, but do keep the construction manual handy justm in case . . . took about 2 hours to check the inventory and group the pieces prior to construction; a MUST-DO if you are to have a frustration-free and smooth construction . . . all told, it took about 8 hours, not counting the two prep hours, to completely finish construction including the shelves inside . . . this was over two days time as we lost the light on the first day . . . my 11yr old daughter and I laid the floor down easily-the sections interlock like flooring . . . by the time we finished the floor and got it as square to the foundation as possible, my 22 & 19 yrold sons were awake (finally!!) and joined us in the yard . . . the next step was to install the wall panels starting from the left of the door opening and continuing around until you reach the righthand side of the door opening. . . each panel has tabs on the bottom that correspond to openings along the floor perimeter and these tabs snap into said openings; at first it was a bit difficult to do , but by the 4-5th panel you should get the technique down and from then on you're only limited by how fast you can get wall panels to the worksite! . . . also, the panels overlap each other and are secured by 5 screws top to bottom, so even without the roof in place, the structure at that point ( once all panels are in place) is very sturdy . . . regarding the foundation and concerns about it being level, I hafta say that unless yours is so far outta level that you can see it from a short distance, minor unevenness can be overcome with little effort and no compromise to the structure . . . we used a modified slab style; an outer perimeter of concrete 2 feet wide, 18 inches deep, with a central 'spine' also 2 feet wide, running lengthwise . . . the voids were then filled with half-inch gravel . . . in hindsight I coulda used a bit more as the floor flexed a bit too much for my liking . . . I covered the floor, made of plastic, with half-inch plywood sheathing to combat the flex and to protect the surface as lawn/snow equipment is being stored in the shed . . . if you go with a solid slab you should not have any issue . . . roof construction went off without a hitch and proved to be very well executed as we've had some very hard, wind-driven rainfalls and nary a drop of water made it inside!! . . . the only 'problem' area here is when you are securing the roof peak sections, it was sometime hard to get the screw to 'catch', so make sure whoever is helping you with the rook peak is a) tall enough to reach em (yes we used a sladder but still!), b) have good arm/upper body strentgh as they hafta push down on the sections as you are driving the screws from underneath . . . in fact, I need to get a longer scre for one side of a peak sectionas I just couldnt get the supplied screw to reach thru and grab it; even without that screw- no water!! . . . the 'skylights' are merely somehat thinner pieces of plastic that, in comparison to the wall and roof sections, do let in a bit of 'light', but even on a full-sun day, you ain't readin' no books in there! . . . nice touch but I wonder if they can be improved/redesigned a bit too allow a useful amount of light in; plexi would be too brittle should a branch fall on it and Lexan may be too costly . . . the kit comes with shims to place under the floor should the doors not align to each other properly, but they are made of wood, not resin, so there may be a durabilty issue later on; strange they didnt make some solid plastic ones . . . . . I lucked out and did not need to use them; my doors are just a wee bit off but they swing free and you can't notice from a distance that the right is ever so slightlky higher than the left . . . all in all, fom order placement to delivery to construction, I give this a 5 star rating all the way; if you buy this, take the time to prep your site properly, inventory your parts, read thru the directions BEFORE you start . . . you'll have no problem and you'll have a great shed at at great price . . . remember - TAKE YOUR TIME and FOLLOW THE ORDER OF CONSTRUCTION . . . one last thing- this comes in 4 boxes of equal length strapped to a wooden pallett so make sure you have a place to drop them ready before the truck gets to your house . . .
I purchased this shed a few years ago. Before writing a review I wanted to see how well it held up. I'm sorry to say...not so well. I think the mid-entry doors are the weakest link. If the wind catches the door on you it'll bend and then will be a struggle to close. But even before that happened the roof over the doors began to sag and that made closing the doors extremely difficult. Now to close the doors I have to push up on the roof. If my wife wants to close the doors she simply cannot. Yes, there are a lot of screws and the way the sides lock to the floor seems lacking, but it does stay together and is relatively water resistant. If you do use a power tool to drive the screws set the clutch at the lowest setting. The metal bars that solidify the door opening lasted a year. I've had to modify and reinforce that area. The screws holding the metal bars simply don't have enough holding power. This wasn't well thought out at all. Be sure to use exterior paint on the floor before assembling the shed floor on it. After a couple of years of sun and freezing cold the screws in the floor lose their grip and the floor buckles. Now moisture can get in. Even if you use all treated lumber a coat of paint on the top surface can't hurt. My biggest complaint is the doors, both the design and the function. This is the weak point in this shed and would keep me from recommending it, let alone purchasing it again. Once you get past the doors and the compromised floor the remainder of the shed seems to hold up pretty well. It's withstood 80mph winds. It's just a royal pain every time you want in or out to struggle with the doors. Eventually I'll add some kind of header to keep the roof from sagging at that point. They'll still be difficult to open and close, but at least possible without pushing up on the roof.
First off, you NEED/MUST have a platform for this. DO NOT unpack your boxes until you have read pages 1-10. (Instructions are IN one of the boxes on top) Make sure your platform is perfectly square and level. Then after checking that all your parts are there, continue.. When putting floor down, make sure the holes for hinges are in the right spot before you do anything else.(see page 34 and 61). When putting in very 1st panel. Make sure that a hinge hole is visible.. There are hinge holes on both sides of floor boards (universal if you will) MAKE SURE they are in place. The door will be in the middle front. You have to decide what the front is before locking floor panels together and securing them with the provided screws. It is a 3 person job, but my husband and I did it ourselves. Took 2 days,(not including the platform).To make the platform in the manual. you will need FRAME 2- 2"x4"x178" & 13-2"x4"90 1/2" & 52-16d 3" nails / FLOOR -Plywood 3 -48"x93 1/2"x3/4" & 1-34"x93 1/2"x3/4" 72- 8d 1 1/2" nails. Get pressure treated wood. Having these materials on hand is a big time saver. Not unless you plan on a cement slab (there are directions for a cement slab also). The directions seem vague, but if we could figure them out, anyone can. DO NOT BUILD THIS WITH SOMEONE SHORT ON PATIENCE. It's easy to put together, but we made some mistakes and had to re-do some steps. be sure to follow directions exactly how they say.That is why I put these instructions in for platform and hinge holes. we got all of the wall panels up and had to take almost all of them down to switch (turn) one floor board. The shed is VERY VERY nice, I am hard to impress and I am impressed. Make sure you put the shed where it will be forever LOL. I put mine too close to the house (I thought it would look like it was part of the house), now I have to hire a forklift to move it. It is khaki and dark brown. Looks gray in the bright sun. We are happy to have this shed.
I got this Snow Joe 21 IN Universal Single Stage Snow Blower Protective Cover for my Snow Joe iON 40-Volt Single Stage Brushless Cordless + Electric Hybrid Snow Blower. The cover is thin, lightweight and easy to use and covers my entire snow blower. I wasn't really sure if it was going to work as intended but I was pleasantly surprised. I have just bought it recently so Ican't tell you how long it will last but most likely a few seasons. I would purchase again if given a choice.
