Quality and relatively ease of assembly!

The shed arrived as scheduled in one huge, heavy box delivered by three very professional & accommodating delivery men. Though the directions showed two individuals needed for assembly, I did it by myself (two would've made the job much easier). Everything fit together as it should, I liked the double walled construction and that it's made in the USA - amazing since so much is made in China these days. Upon completion it stands as a very handsome shed and compliments my backyard. I should mention it's extremely important that the shed be placed on a level surface otherwise there'll be **** to pay upon assembly as the parts will not align properly. Good job 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!

Love it..... sturdy and cute to boot!!


My brother said it was pretty easy to put together - we used 12" square patio stones for the foundation over a shale gravel base. I especially like the plastic raised shingle look of the roof. I have another shed (Keter brand) that has a roof that looks like tar paper so this was a big improvement. It's roomy and has some areas for storing taller lumber pieces which is nice. Doors work good and it seems pretty sturdy. I'd buy another one just like it if I needed one.

I recall that it was $100 cheaper to purchase it online compared to buying it at the store.

Nice Shed


Nice product. Went together very easily. I did most of it by myself in about 3 hours in windy conditions. I like how tall the shed is inside. The only place that I had screw alignment issues were on the window panels, other than that everything was very close.

Read Directions Carefully


I will only talk about the assembly, as that is all I have done since I was asked to do this review. You must be very careful as you assemble this product. Read the directions, then think about what is logical, then assemble. Some pieces are easy to get upside down, mixed up, or otherwise put together wrong causing a "take apart and redo." Missing parts can also cause problems. I was missing the 3 special screws and washers required to fasten the two roof pieces together. I called the company and they sent them out right away.
