Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit May 23, 2013 at 07:42 PM
Maybe I shouldn't post this until I pick mine up.. but I thought it was pretty decent deal:

12' x 8' shed - 6' height at the doors.

http://www.lowes.com/pd_437509-57...facetInfo=

Can combine it with the Lowes 10% off coupons (read the thread on them to get them free while they last).


$858.00 - 10% = $772.20 x tax 6%= $818.53
Depending on tax rate it will vary. Looks like a nice shed, made in the USA etc.

Some comments suggest adding a few pcs of wood.. but it works great.

Hmn... I was going to build a shed from scratch but this seems like it might be choice. Can you confirm everything is pre-cut and comes in Ikea-style boxes?

I'm going off the reviews. They seem decent and here's the one:

The style is beautiful and the finish on the panels is really nice. It just has to be painted now. It for a chicken coop for my seven chicks. Kind of overkill, but, hey, they are my pets. If you need a shed, honestly, you can't go wrong with this. I am amazed how they manage to design this and provide every piece that is precut and it actually fits. Buy one.
Pros

So I am going to go this weekend.. write down every piece of wood and try to factor the cost of building versus buying.

Sometimes these prepackaged sheds include everything except the shingles. I have no idea on this particular one.

To be honest I would be completely happy if it didn't come with shingles because we had just had our roof replaced on the house this past week. I might have to add some more windows on the other side though... As far as cost of this compared to building from scratch, it's very possible everything being precut would be worth it. Also, I find it nearly impossible to fix anything around the house without at least 3 trips to the hardware store... so if it has everything included, worth it in my book

Ooh good I have a few questions!
Did it come with shingles? What kind of foundation did you put it on? How thick is the flooring? I'm sure I have more...

It does not come with shingles. You have to buy them separate. It takes 5 bundles of shingles for the roof.

When we bought my buddies' we put these stone blocks(almost look like little pyramids) with slots and slid wood in between. I can't describe it but it's held up just fine for the last 3.5 years.

Here is what we used:

Just blocks, then ran wood through them to make a secure floor. Keeps it up off the ground so it doesn't get wet either.

I just bought this a few months ago ... sigh ... Could have saved some money. Great kit though. Everything went together perfect.

I just bought a pre-built shed, so I've got price lists from a bunch of different places. Since this uses 2x3, most places call it an econo-shed. This size shed prebuilt will run about $1400+ (in the Philly area, not including tax). So about 1/2 price. Sounds like a good deal, if you are handy.

Pier blocks AKA deck blocks or sometimes "deck piers" (not entirely correct)

Man, on the fence here. Good price, and I need some outdoor storage space. The 2x3 construction gives me pause, though, especially if I have to buy some extra boards and still roof and floor it in addition.

Reps anyway, OP. I'll have to think about it, and will probably miss this one.

I built an 8x12 shed last fall...finished this spring. I used 3/4 plywood floor, built my own trusses, used metal siding/roof for the exterior and roof...2x4 walls... i think i've got under a $1000 into it...but i bought almost everything on sale from menards... Good learning experience, but a lot of work, considering i did the whole thing by myself. If i did it over i would have built shorter walls, and went 10 wide or even 12 wide.

Great shed for the price. I built this shed around 2 years ago and it still seems like new. I probably put about another $250 into it with the shingles, paint, screws, etc. All pieces were well cut and were not warped in the kit that I received. I substituted screws instead of nails in most places.
