I was only allowed to do metal, which is why I thought this was a good choice considering it's size, price, and appearance. I read the reviews and saw how poorly it seems to have been written, I figured maybe I know better. Started early with 3 adults and the first day alone took 12 hours. It is not only written poorly, but manufactured even worse! Going on day 2 now, frustrated and angry! The only things preventing me from taking this back to the store is that 1) the box cannot be salvaged, and 2) my father-in-law flew in from across the country and decided to help with this project. We've wasted half of his short visit trying to deal with this junk. :(
Nothing fits. More than half of the holes are more than a quarter inch off, even within the same support. Can't close the door,(Which was the last item to install) Space for door is over a 1/2 " different from top to bottom. Spent more than 30 hours assembling. Over lapping parts have no tolerance. I am an tool and die maker and an engineer. I have never seen anything so far off.

Please consider my background of being a Tool Engineer for 35 years. The engineering is so bad that it's hard to believe. Must have been a school kid that designed this shed. The directions are terrible and in many cases just don't make good since. I worked alone and it took me about 20 hours to build. I will say it does look very nice and is pretty sturdy. The company that builds them for sears was changing the instructions because of so many customer complaints. Maybe they will have the bugs out by the time you buy one. Otherwise be patient and plan on a lot of frustration and calls to the manufacturer.
I purchased the storage shed in the larger size, 10x7, plus the floor frame kit. It is a very nice and attractive building. I recommend that you read all the instructions in the box prior to starting the construction to inform you of what's ahead. It has anchoring and flooring instructions which you need to know before you begin. It's a good idea to make sure there is no rain in the forecast for the few days after you begin your project. We had to do a little at a time after the first day due to rain. I think this project would have been easier to assemble had we had some related experience. Having never done such a thing made it more difficult for us. However, we are very proud that we assembled a storage shed and are very pleased with its appearance. We could have finished quicker if we had had four people working on it. We basically had two plus me to hand the others screws and help hold pieces. We put ours on a cinderblock frame to prevent rising water from getting into it. I know our neighbors are happy to see an attractive new storage shed in our back yard.
