For what it's worth these steel sheds are a huge pita to put together. It too me and two of my friends two full days to put together a 10x10 model. There are probably about 1,000 screws to install, most of which were not perfectly aligned. Do not even think about attempting to build one without someone to help and a pair of cordless drills.

Thanks for your comment! Yes, the reviewers say this is a great shed but a pain to assemble.

Also need absolutely perfect base...with the cost of concrete pad might be better off with a wood shed...would last much much longer too.

I had a similar experience, but bought mine from Menards. “Some assembly required” is an understatement. Assembly turned into a nightmare and these kits use the poorest quality screws that strip right out and thinnest sheet metal you could get by with.

In retrospect, I should’ve just made a wood shed and put together my own kit. You need a weekend to assemble these and you’re going to need a friend to help you.

I bought this same model shed last October. Paid $650 at the time. I thought assembly wasn't too bad but it does take time (and at least 2 people). I did the site prep and floor myself (3/4" plywood on top of treated 2x4" sitting on grade). Had a friend help me assemble the shed but did some of the pre-assembly and laying out the parts beforehand in the garage. This helped speed things up and there was less confusion. Once assembled it seems pretty strong. Just have to keep snow off it as it's not rated for much.

As the roof is metal, just heat the roof, when it snows, via 1-2 electric space heaters as needed (rig them so they hang from the ceiling & aim hot air directly at the ceiling).

Snow/ice *should* melt right off, dependent on whether you start the heaters early enough in regard to the age of the snow/ice storm.

Check your local building codes. For the places I am familiar with, a buidling permit is required for anything over 120 square feet.

LOL..or maybe too much beer and not enough construction experience? Smilie

It can be done. I put together a 10X10 last year I got a deal at Sears. Yes, a pain, but can still be done. I did mine solo and took a day and a half (the half day was just laying everything out and organizing the parts properly)

I would not recommend the galvanized steel if you live anywhere near the ocean. Bottom line, ocean views are fantastic (I have 180 degree ocean view on the Pacific..about 1/3 mile from the actual water). But NOTHING metal stands up to salt water spray .. period! Inside or out, if its metal and you have salt water spray/vapor around, it WILL RUST (the closer the water the faster it will rust..on the actual water, 6 months tops and ALL metal will be rusting). In those cases, you should spend the extra and go with a form of Poly (anything non-metal). It's more cost up front, but definitely cheaper in the long run.

My shed is only about a year+ old now and has not been abused in any manner, but the rust is already setting in on the corners and doors. It MAY last 3-4 years, then time to get another. Even at $500 a crack (which this one is a GOOD deal) every 3 or so years starts getting expensive and a hassle to change out.

I just altered my shed and can advise anyone to do this from the START. A little time and very little extra money can turn your regular shed into a very valuable extra space! I'm only 5'7" and hated walking into my shed and bumping my head on the CENTER beam! I made a simple 15" riser bottom wall from 2x4 framing. Now, my shed is a true WORKSPACE with a LOT more valuable uses! I attached some pics for those getting this shed to consider doing this on the initial build. It's DEFINITELY WORTH THE LITTLE EXTRA TIME AND VERY LITTLE EXTRA COST! Smilie

I install one of these 3 years ago in the back yard. Assembly wasn't too bad, took 2 people to assembly the whole thing. The sheet metal is thin (less than 0.04") and it will bent if it got hit. and you can't put any heavy item against it. But no issue or rust after 3 years. Only applied some silicone sealant to blockout leak from the roof screws. Back then it was $200+. for $499, You can get a plastic or wooden one.
