Excellent shed -- easy to assemble -- get the base right

I benefited tremendously from others' reviews in deciding to buy and build this shed, so I wanted to offer a few small points from my own experience to help others. 1. In getting the foundation right, the directions tell you to put this on a wood platform on a gravel base. Well, they don't specify the kind of gravel. The only kind of gravel available at most big box home improvement stores is too small to use--I tried. It says it's good for drainage, etc, but its so small that it slips around and doesn't form a solid enough foundation. You need to make sure that if you are putting this on a gravel base that you use large, angular gravel to get a firm foundation -- so check with local suppliers to find the right stone. Alternatively, I think a cheaper solution would have been the Featherlight HandiBlocks or Dek-Blocks, but it would have raised the foundation up higher than I wanted, but if that works for you, I think would be the quickest, easiest way to get the foundation right. 2. The directions specify that you need two pieces of 48 x 48-1/4 x 3/4" plywood for the top of the wooden base. That extra 1/4" of width would require buying a second sheet of plywood, and treated 3/4" thick plywood is almost $50/sheet in my area. I used a single 48x96" sheet of plywood, and the shed fit just fine. The one thing I didn't do (but should have) is to reduce the dimensions of the 2x6 frame by that same 1/4" to make the base and plywood line up perfectly. Not crucial, but it would have helped. The 4x8 sheet of plywood easily fits the entire structure. 3. Buy a rubber mallet -- I used a small sledge and a block of wood, but a rubber mallet would have been easier and made the project faster, and is a good tool to have around, and they are incredibly cheap. That's it -- putting together the shed itself is a snap. Took two of us 2.5 hours of assembly after the base was complete. Very intuitive and seems sturdy. Well worth the cost, and grateful for an American made and well constructed shed. Thanks Sears!

Seemed great until it started to fall apart.

This shed went together okay, all the parts were included and it seemed like a great deal at first. Ours came with a 1 year warranty. The shed is 2 years old now and falling apart! The sky lights have cracked open along with the windows and walls leaking when it rains. However the most disappointing part of the shed is the corners of the outer walls are splitting open where the plastic mold seams are. Even if we attempt to plug the skylights, reseal the windows and walls, the outer shell of the thing is just splitting open! We have a Rubbermaid Big Max shed that is 7 years older than this one and it does not leak nor split open. We live on the Central Coast of California, so extreme weather is not something we experience. This product shouldn't wear the Craftsman name! Don't waste your money!
