I like many was on the fence about purchasing the last shed deal the 15x8 for 1599 and by the time I had decided it sold out. If you search Sam's clubs website it says sold out but when you click on the product and go to the individual page I was able to purchase it.

Mine is. Brought in by truck and slid off rails like a large construction dumpster.
Basically like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC_sKUjQyMo

You're going to need to find that locally. UPS isn't delivering it. Lol. I'm in north Jersey and there's easily half a dozen companies here that do it. I had a 10x16 Amish built shed delivered fully intact. Amazing quality.

Opinion on someone that used to have a shed similar to this:

If you cant afford a nice wooden shed then this is better than metal, especially if you live in states like Florida where there's a lot of salt in the air. Just be warned that you REALLY need to level that ground and put gravel down or put it on a slab - DO NOT skip this step or you will deeply regret it. Your foundation is everything.

Outside of that, I think its a great deal! I lov e the two doors too.. you can lock one up and never use it or use both, its a whatever you want situation. You can also use the area between the two doors as a wall if you wanted so you get a sort of two sheds in one thing.. one for gardening power tools, one for gardening tools/pots/soil.

I've driven through Amish land in PA and never really considered those prefabs. I'm in north Jersey. How much did that cost you?

I got the smaller stand up unit last year and was not impressed with it. https://www.lifetime.com/lifetime...orage-shed

Parts did not line up well - e.g. predrilled holes did not line up - or where not predrilled. Also had one part that had a manufacturing defect and ordered a replacement part that did not arrive for months. (machined a replacement instead)

I got mine at the local club on clearance sale - so didnt return it. But it was close call. Would not buy any of their products ever again.

It still doesnt close very well.

Quote from Dr. J :
Well when it's claimed that permits are needed, but then there are ZERO inspections whatsoever, or they're walkthroughs - yeah it's a cash grab.

I also had to apply for a permit from our local health dept. Why you ask? Well I have septic, and the health dept is the one that certifies dwellings for use and controls all septic aspects (e.g. new construction or major additions). During the other permitting processes, I had to give (on an as-built) an accurate representation of the shed location and size (keep in mind this was a pre-built, as in, it's literally dropped off a flat bed just like a towed car would be) - keeping in mind setbacks from wells, septic systems, property lines, wetlands, etc etc. So, its location was already determined to be in accordance with regulations.

There is no water or sewer to the shed. There are no fixtures. There was no power. It was a shed for lawn equipment, pure and simple. So tell me why I had to pay the health dept ~ $60 for the privilege of putting up a shed that the other building dept had confirmed was nowhere near a septic or well, and there is no water or other means of effluent? Oh yeah, and THEY didn't inspect either (you know, to make sure it was put where I said it would be, or even the nature of the shed, that it was the size I said it would be).

That project was nearly $500 in many different permits and fees - for an ~ $8500 shed.

I'm not an anomaly - everyone I've spoken to in CT/RI that's had to do permits for one project or another has the same feedback - even though these are ostensibly for *safety*, there are no inspections, or they are just walkthroughs enough for the town to claim they are doing their jobs.

When I finished my basement I applied for permits (the proper thing to do). In the 3 walkthroughs did any inspector bother to even pull back insulation, look at the sil stud (to verify it's PT), make sure the wiring I was using was rated, or whip out a simple outlet ground tester? Nope. When I installed a wood fireplace insert and got a permit, did the town even come out to verify it was installed correctly, that a SS flue liner was put in and a proper cap installed? Nope, they didn't even come out *at all*, just took their $60 and said have a nice day.

Yeah, permits are cash grabs plain and simple, and some wonder why many don't bother to go through such processes.
I don't know where you live, but I am not buying the electrical inspection part. I have been a developer for 15+ years and what you are saying just does not add up. Also unless you are certified they wouldn't allow you to rough-in your own electrical. Some of the stuff you are ranting about I agree with but some of the stuff does not really add up.

I would put a return address label on this shed, so when it blows into the next county during the spring storms you might get it back.
Is that a real problem? Nothing said about wind speed ratings at the link, but the website says their sheds have a wind speed rating of 70 mph. For an additional $300 you can by their extreme weather kits for a wind speed rating of up to 118 mph.

My 10x16 was $3300 but I went with a mid-tier model and had a few upgrades. I know it's just a shed, but I've had a few friends/neighbors compliment me on it.

I got it from Amish Mike in Mount Olive.

I have the 8X10 shed and love it. Only issue is the doors were kinda hard to get just right. But aside from that I have no issues w/ leaking or anything. Only real maintenance is cleaning. I live in Michigan so we do get all 4 seasons too.

Well it's the truth. "Final inspection" not even one of those 3-light outlet testers that's like $6 @ HF [harborfreight.com] (and I know because I bought one *just to be sure* they all checked out - even though I did the wiring myself and overbuilt). I also took photos of the entire space at stages in the process.

"Wouldn't allow you to do rough in" - this is a basement finish - as in, concrete walls and floor to a finished living space. Perhaps you are talking about an entire house? I literally brought it from bare concrete to finished sheetrock, drop ceiling; did all the electrical and low voltage myself (lots of RG6, CAT5 and speaker wiring) (including a sub panel), did some minor HVAC (vents) and of course all the carpentry, flooring, tile, etc etc.

Trust me, this all happened. "Inspection" amounted to him coming out 3 times and just walking around for a couple minutes, that's it. A coworker who finished his bonus room (lives in RI, I live in CT) said the same happened to him - "inspector" comes out, looks around a bit, didn't even use the simplest of testers. And I got a visit maybe a year later because apparently in their books they didn't mark it as completed (really, tax visit).

I'll concur. Don't buy metal even if you don't live where it's salty. Metal SUCKS.

I'll also concur on foundation. It needs to be flat and level. If not flat, you'll notice pieces not lining up properly and it's really going to put a lot of stress where you make those connections and the shed is going to fail prematurely.

FWIW - Mine was rated for 65 mph winds. I live in MO. We had 65 mph straight line winds (yes very strong) but ripped the roof right. Not a common place but neither should be buying a shed. I'm going traditional construction next time.

Quote from CrimsonSummer2007 :
Yep. Kinda like all those troublesome electrical grid regulations, and floodplain building restrictions that Texas is too smart to participate in! The free market knows best, and regulations cost money without providing any benefit; Right?? Plus why bother spending any money on those things when you can just get the Federal Government to bail you out again and again and again when it turns out that the "Free Market" got it wrong when they were too busy maximizing profits and passing the buck down the line??
Way to over-read into a response based on current events.
