These sheds fit together if and only if you have a perfectly flat "foundation" for them. Plywood on uneven ground is not good enough. Use a level. We first tried without any plywood -- epic failure. We then spent days getting our backyard level and had to rebuild the shed several times in the process. However, once we had a very level surface for it, it snaps together just fine. Put the time into prep work on the site up front and you'll more than get it back during the assembly phase. Otherwise with an uneven base, the roof won't snap on, the doors won't stay closed, all manner of woes await. This shed is great for someone who doesn't want to build it him- or herself, perhaps from not owning all the woodshop tools or from being smart enough not to want to heft trusses around on top of a ladder. It is attractive and functional. This shed is *not* good for retirees who think they can be done in 20 minutes on their own. The site prep is crucial, and it takes two people at least one of whom has some upper body strength to move the roof panels around while on a ladder. Expect to spend at least a weekend. Once built, it's a great shed. It is more attractive than most, and the perfect size to hold the lawn mower, string trimmer, and oodles of gardening gear. Not having to walk over the lawn mower to get to the laundry in the garage sure is nice, and no more potting soil bags tucked under the eves. After going on a year now, the shed stood up to multiple high wind advisories, serious rain, and hot (90+ F) weather without any trouble at all. It does exactly what we bought it to do, and I am pleased with the purchase. I feel it was money well spent. I just wish there were more wall hooks and hanging systems designed for it. I keep checking back in hope that Rubbermaid will realize I'd keep giving them more money. :-)
PURCASED A BIG MAX 7 X 7 SHED IN MAY LOOKED GREAT THE FIRST HOT DAY OVER 80 ALL THE WALLS BOWED OUTWARDS AND NOW THE SHED IS COMPLETLY DEFORMED ALL AROUND TOTAL JUNK
I have had this shed for almost 10 years. It has held up well to the varying temperatures and storms in eastern Kansas. Highly recommend.
I bought the Big Max for a interstate move. Price point was the determing factor. Within one year the top pin holding the left door to the roof broke (the door blew back against the front wall). The pin didn't completely break off (hanging on by a thread) but occasionally pulls out of the hole. Because the pin was not reinforced it broke so now I have to get a replacement left door if possible. I need to replace the WHOLE DOOR because the pin broke. Very Disappointing ! I don't think that I would recommend this shed unless the person is strapped for cash and needs something fast. IS THIS COVERED BY THE WARRANTY ? If it is that changes my mind about recommending this shed (but I still have to remove/loosen the roof to reinstall the replacement door!)
I bought my shed about 3 years ago and one of the handles broke. Other than that, it has been great.
The product was well packaged and well described for assembly, and took a few hours to put together. and it is waterproof and critters don't seem to like chewing on it. all this is good.. however, there was a winter storm or two, and somewhere in the wind and rain, one door broke at the hinges, and when it fell out, it broke the other door hinges. no darn good if the racoons can come right in through the door! so, for now I would say this is not a product worthy of purchase or use.
