Reviewer: Bill K from    5 Stars

We are very happy with the quality of the shed and how easy the assembly went. We had no trouble following the assembly instructions (new and improved), and all the parts bags were labelled correctly. It took three adults 4-1/2 hours to assemble on a wood frame base set on patio blocks. The base took about eight hours to build. We made every effort to make sure it was level, and it paid off in the end. All the panels and doors lined up perfectly with no gaps between wall panels or where the roof panels attach to the walls. The other brands we compared were flimsy and had gaps large enough to let in small birds. We've had rain a few times since building the shed and the inside has stayed dry each time. I would highly recommend this shed.

Reviewer: Doug from Engineers   4 Stars

Assembly was simple! About eight hours from opening the box to closing the doors. We had three people - two working and one reading the instructions. The key to this kit is to build a base that's perfectly flat and rigid. We built a platform of 2 x 6's on 12 inch centres with a half inch plywood top. This whole deck sat on concrete deck blocks that were on gravel. We poured concrete around the blocks prior to building the deck. The foundation and deck construction took about 16 hours. As usual, the prep work made the job so much easier. You'll need pry bars to aid in putting the walls into the base. Other than that - just follow the instructions.

Reviewer: Harley from    5 Stars

I am using the product to store my gang box, generator, extension cord, ladders and misc. parts as I am an electrician and need a place to put materials that I will need on job sites. The only real problem that we ran into was the seal for the skylight the paper did not want to come off of the material. We put the shed on a slab and had no problems with assembly. It took about five hours to assemble with three people working, two working and one reading the instructions. We went step by step and it worked out fine. I would rather have had the sky lights in the middle of the shed instead of the front but that is a small issue.

Reviewer: Jege from    4 Stars

My wife and I put the shed up yesterday in about 8 hours. We had read reviews and knew it might take about this long. Assembly went well for the most part, other than the fact that it was raining half the time! Only hiccups are that 1. the doors aren't lined up - the right one is too high and the left one is too low making it difficult to close, we've tried shims and there doesn't appear to be a way of getting it just right, the foundation and shed are level too which make it frustrating. It's like the doors need to just be able to move up and down and I don't see a way to do that. And 2. There are bars that run front to back and support the roof that were supposed to be part of one of the middle steps, I think it could have been marked more clearly. It wasn't a big deal we did have to back and undo about 16 screws and wedge the bars in. Otherwise the shed looks great and here's hoping it lasts!

Reviewer: Biam from    5 Stars

Great Product! I was able to set this up by myself! Took a little longer 'bout 6 hrs. Don't pick a windy day to set up! Might want to pre-tap the 10-24 window screw hole, acrylic looked as though it might crack. Definitely use cardboard under your ladder to avoid caving the floor in. I am very pleased with this purchase overall.

Reviewer: VeryKool from    5 Stars

I bought this shed several weeks ago and recently completed the build by myself. The instructions were easy to follow and accurate. Takes a while to assemble but everything matched and went together like a glove. It looks beautiful and is first quality and sturdy. I was very impressed with the product and would buy other Lifetime products in the future. The only suggestion I would have would be another window for cross ventilation. The design is impressive.

Reviewer: Juls from    4 Stars

I love having a shed but installation wasn't always smooth sailing. The illustration weren't always clearly drawn. It was difficult to tell what the directions were trying to tell us. We lost one of the bolts in the grass and there weren't any extra of that type so I now have duct tape holding it for now. I loved how the part went together with screws and bolts but after two days had certainly had enough! Overall, We are pleased with the product and enjoy having a place to put our outdoor stuff.

Reviewer: BIGJ from No Location Supplied   4 Stars

Very Good Design. Form And Function I put this shed together myself in one days time with no one else helping me. The only thing I did not like about the assembly was how tough it was to get the wall tabs into the floor slots. I ended up using a cut 2x6 and my 5 lb hammer to pound the walls in from the top.. This took me the longest time. Everything else was a pleasure to assemble..plenty of hardware to boot. It was installed on a level concrete surface however I did end up having to shim the left front and right rear just slightly. ((hopefully it holds up over time))

Reviewer: Anonymous from    4 Stars

It took two of us 4 hours. You do not have to be very skilled to build this shed. The corner walls are a little tricky but that is about it. Very nice product, I would recommend it. The only bad part was the instructions were very poor.

Reviewer: Anonymous from    4 Stars

Great Product. I purchased this shed last week, and had it assembled in about 4 myself. It was an easy assembly and the instructions were pretty well detailed. A few of the details were a bit sketchy. The product seems very durable.

Reviewer: Peter from PiratePete   5 Stars

Love it. I would recommend this to a friend. It's a breeze to put up. Took 3 of us 4 hours... Floor is good but could be a bit more sturdy. Great interior light from the windows and skylight.

Reviewer: Kimmer from    5 Stars

Beautiful Storage. I had bought this shed for a quad storage. I really like the ease of entry, the height of the curved doors as I am a tall guy, and the rafters for storage of long items.

Reviewer: Shed Man from    5 Stars

Excellent Shed...Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. Very sturdy and durable. Definitely get a friend to help put it up. Plenty of space inside. Little maintenance needed. Very, very happy with this shed!

Reviewer: Jaci from    5 Stars
