Product Review (submitted on December 4, 2014):
I compared this to the Rubbermaid Big Max which was about $120 less but flimsier and not as attractive. The shed arrived within 10 days of order and the trucking company employee was great about using the dolly to move the boxes all the way to the back yard. That's where the easy stuff ended. I'm 55 and I worked alone. I had a handyman build a nice level wood foundation on cement blocks and gravel. This size shed doesn't need a concrete foundation although the company's mantra is to use concrete. Ok, so it me 18.5 hours over 3 days from the time I opened the first of two boxes until the time I finished the last page of the step by step instructions. Package was missing a cotter pin and included 2 left shelf hangers instead of a right and a left but still able to connect to the shelf. One of the main problems I had was that the instructions did not specify the order of attaching the rear gable so I just kept putting the roof on but the gable did not fit, so I took the last 2 roof pieces off and attached them to the 2 gable pieces and THEN put them on which finally worked. The roof/gable pieces are attached by unique but difficult little plastic connectors which gave me some real headaches. A word of caution, go light on the torque with your drill or you'll be stripped out. Door lock/latch is adequate although if someone wanted in, it would take 5 seconds with a crowbar. Once together, it looks great and is sturdy and secure enough for the average homeowner stuff.
