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.
