This sounds like the double wall constructed sheds we bought years ago that both Lowe's and HD sold, that we put together panel by panel, on a base channel that was provided, rather than a floor, which we put on a cement slab. The panels slid easily into each other; and they had steel doors; and the key to putting on the doors easily is adjusting the opposite corners of the sheds (it's in the instructions) - which most people skip over this aspect, but it's there about the doors. If the inside of the panels look like a honey comb; this shed holds up very well. Ours were made by a Company named "Royal" and were made in Canada at the time; and you were able to get an additional add on piece if you wanted to extend the shed.

I have an area that has a slightly slanted cement slab (probably for drainage purpose). I am thinking about putting up a shed like this on that concrete surface but not sure if the slope would create problems during installation and also if the shed would be able to stand up straight and sturdy afterward. Any thought or suggestions since you have done it once? Thanks.

Apparently this shed comes with a floor, ours did not, but it should come with rails in which the panels fit into as well as the floor; so if that is the case; if the slant is not that far off, I wouldn't think it would be that much of a problem. Since ours had no floor we had to have perfectly flat concrete to line up the rails and square them; that was really key in putting this together; as well as with the doors; and aligning them; with squaring up opposite corners to get the doors hung properly.

Thank you, Piccaboo!
I placed an order for in-store pickup. See if I rent a truck from lowes to get it home.

I just installed this today with my brother in law and I came to SD to see if any accessories are were available and stumbled upon this thread. I just wanted to provide some feedback for those that have or are thinking about buying this.

As Piccaboo pointed out, this is indeed a double wall construction. It does come with the floor and the walls "snap" into the floor.
Installation was logical and very easy to follow. One person can probably build this themselves but I'd recommend having 2 people. 1 person on the inside installing the screws and the other person on the outside holding the roof panels down. It took us about 3 hours to build. I will try to post some pics of the finished product when I get a chance.
The box is pretty big and heavy. The delivery slip indicated that it weighed over 500 lbs. and they used a pallet jack to transport it. Just something to keep in mind if you plan to pick it up yourself.

Overall, I am very happy with it so far. The true test will come once the rain and snow start falling.

Did you have to pour a concrete pad for the shed? If so, did you anchor the floor to the concrete pad?

We didn't anchor the floor because we built it on the existing cement in my back yard.
The floor of the shed has 8 locations where you can secure anchors if you are not building it on existing concrete.

Is your existing cement pad leveled (or slanted)? Would the shed itself be heavy enough to stand the wind without being anchored?

My backyard is level although I would think you can build it if its slightly slanted. I would just worry about drainage nearby though as base is not very high and water could potentially seep in.
In terms of withstanding strong wind, I feel that its pretty sturdy and would be pretty heavy once I start putting junk in there. I don't live in a place that has hurricane force winds so I don't think I will have to worry about that.

Ideally it would bring better piece of mind if you can install it with the anchors but it also depends on where and what material you are building it on top of.
