15% Discount ~ $100 savings ~ 10 year Warranty

I had been debating buying or building a shed this summer. Beyond the price point and warranty - the height on this (103 inches) sold me on it versus other models with comparable size footprints. > OOS for shipping

Solid deal, coupled with a Home Depot 10% coupon (paired with their credit-card). Unsure if add'l contractor/project discounts would apply.

What storage/hanging hooks, boards are included in this, I wonder...

Ideally, I was seeking a 7'x8' offering (I had noted some with skylights/etc.

FWIW — a similar offering is showing $499 in the Northeast/NY area...

I don't believe that it comes with any accessories (shelving or hooks).

I did see that other brands came with sunroofs or larger side windows, but this model only features a single small window on the top of the back wall near the apex of the roof.

By using the HD credit card there is an additional 10% off?

I'm seeing $549 right away....but OOS for all forms of purchase (35226). HD can be such a mystery sometimes.

I paid this price 4 years ago.... great purchase... still going strong. We had a tornado come through a few weeks ago and it took it like a champ... lots of room inside for tools, lawnmower, snowblower, etc.

My wife and I put it together ourselves and while we aren't certified handymen we got the job done.

A few months back i went in and asked about the difference between the instore version (what you linked) and this online version that included the accessory kit, [homedepot.com] its been $549 for months (Link)
The HD Manager price matched it and threw in the accessories. Not sure others could get the deal, but worth noting that there is a second listing on the HD site with more at this price for some time.

It's been this price for couple of months now. The only caveat is only available via store pickup or scheduled delivery, which you will need a truck or another $79.

So for those who are looking at sheds, be mindful that yes this shed can work for you. I purchased the rubbermaid 7 x 7 3 years ago.

I attempted to assemble it 3 times. A slightly uneven surface stopped me from getting the roof on the first time, light winds knocked it down the second time. Because it's all plastic, the third time most of the plastic holes had become so loose the fastener screws fall out.

Then, neighbor kid was burning leaves in the yard that got a little away from them. Leaf fire + this shed and the plastic polycarb catches pretty fast. It's hard to put out. Because of how fast it goes with a little errant flame, i'm not going to ever do another polycarb shed, it's just too risky.

At the end of the day I wish I had purchased a metal kit, prefab wood one, or just gotten a concrete / wood pallet foundation first.

If you do get this, make sure the foundation is FLAT, check it with a level across the entire base. DO NOT build with any wind over 3 MPH.

FWIW plastic sheds aren't really designed to hang shit on the walls. MAYBE an extension cord or something, but certainly not a shelf. Hang anything heavy an expect the wall panel to distort.

I have a prefab 14x20 shed that is my shed meaning it has all the lawn equipment. It cost over $8k and another $3-4k in site prep. Then we have the kids shed which has toys, bikes, etc. That's a Keter plastic shed I put up maybe 3-4 years ago. Previously I had a metal shed - came with the house. OMG I wouldn't wish that piece of crap (or anything like it) on my worst enemy. It was sturdy enough, but the door would bind all the time and fall off (often in the middle of winter). The roof caved in under some snow, and I had to build a truss system to push it back up and support it (along with an auto jack). Then it leaked so I spent a few seasons with a giant tarp over it. It was pure joy cutting that farker up for the junkyard!

Before buying the prefab shed (as in, it's built elsewhere and dropped off on a flatbed - that size is the biggest they can legally transport on the roads without special permitting) I had considered building a shed myself - I am an advanced DIYer but didn't want to spend a whole summer getting a shed together. I looked at the Lowes/HD kits (where all the pieces basically come precut), and they are very competitive on pure lumber cost, but you still have to make the base/plinth. Actually, the pre-fab sheds are very cost competitive too - certainly not cheaper than DIY but as I said, I didn't want to spend all my free time putting a shed together, so there's value in that.

But yes you are correct, ESPECIALLY with these plastic sheds, you need a stable, level, flat surface to build them on otherwise you'll be cursing yourself when all the fastener holes are just a bit off. When I put the Keter shed in, I didn't want to spend a ton of time leveling ground, so I just built a plinth out of treated wood and leveled that on blocks at the 4 corners. Sure it took some time building it but man it was nice just plopping it down and building the plastic shed on top. Plus, being wood, it gives an easy base to screw the shed down to. I'm actually considering moving it to enable a larger play area, and being on the plinth means it should be straightforward to move, although heavy.
