Great Shed at a Great Price. A question I had when looking was who made it? Answer is Suncast, I was glad to learn this when I opened the boxes. Suncast stands up to our intense Florida Summer heat year after year. Plan on a day to do this .. the foundation needs to be level so all of the pieces will fit properly. With Termites a problem here for us and NOT wanting to pour a concrete slab I went with large prepoured flat concrete 24" squares available at the local home improvement store. I set these on a base of recycled concrete stones to minimize shifting of the stones and to get them all level under the floor of the shed. The assembly was simple very easy to understand directions and the well made pieces. not a single part needed trimmed or "worked in" a concern from other sheds I looked at. When it was done we had two days of pouring rain it was bone dry inside. I would highly recommend this after the last 3 months of heavy use it both looks and works Great
I love this shed and would love to give 5 stars. Up till now the product has performed to my full expectations. I purchased two of these; 8 X 4 X 8.5 sizes almost two years ago. I have used them more than any item except for my mower. However, they both have developed long penetrating cracks through the right front corners of the corner panels. This makes them susceptible to rain, snow, and dust...and possible will cause complete destruction if the cracks continue the entire length. Not even two years old, and this occurs. Unsatisfactory.
The design and locking system is easy to assemble. It does come with a floor but cannot be put on hard ground, mostly as a moisture barrier. will need a floor/foundation, recommended 4" concrete.
VERY, VERY disappointed no installation services within 500 miles... of Tampa, FL. I'm not rural and no installation services for something in TWO boxes weighing 700 pounds, plus the extensions... 2000 Pounds, no installation, cannot be pout on ground. BUT... shed itself is totally awesome with easy connectors. I cannot recommend it without delivery and installation due to weight, even the box are big, almost 9 feet tall.
The plans in the kit provide site specifications to help you with having a firm foundation. Allow yourself a few extra days to get the site prep done. Otherwise, with a site already prepped .. it takes two persons ABOUT 6 hours to assemble or one person could do it with a high degree of DIY know how but it will be difficult and take longer.
