This year we wanted to move our chickens into a more permanent structure so decided to build one ourselves. Like I said, I consider myself to be average when it comes to most work but I had never put a shed together. It was the roof part that always looked difficult with the angle cuts. I came across this kit and was pleased to see that there was no angle cuts to be make. Just cut 2x4 to length and put together.
One kit allows for a 7x8ft sized building which was perfect for our requirements. The kit is basically 12 triangle shaped pieces for attaching the vertical studs to the floor and 24 pieces for attaching the studs to the rafters. It also states `full' instructions .. however, I do not consider 2 pages to be `full' instructions. There is enough however to get an idea of steps needed.
I will not go into details on the build process, but detail a couple of things..
The 24 pieces used to connect the studs to the rafters are thin and will bend when you are trying to move the attached pieces from one side to the other and then when you are raising to a vertical position. You certainly need 2, if not 3 people to support it.
I found it difficult to get exacting squares. When building a shed using normal methods, you effectively put 4 squares (sides) together and you need some bad luck to be completely out of shape if you test your diagonals.Read more ›
Going into this purchase I knew that I was paying for my own lack of experience and I was okay with that. I work in engineering so I know how to read and create Assembly and detail drawings. That is all I do all day long. I would be fired in an instant if I sent out something like the useless instructions that came with this.
I would send it back but the shipping weight would put me way over what the product already cost me. I spent over $50 getting the kit here and I am not about to spend more just to get rid of it. I am going to have to try to make the best of it and come up with my own instructions.
Northern Tool is great and they don't make the product, they just sell it. They are a good seller. This is a bad product.
I precut all my wood and my measurements were as close as anyone could get, yet there was no way myself or anyone else that looked at this kit, could get their sill plates to line up at all. I ended up having to cut new boards to make the dimensions work.
The brackets were a pain in the rear to install. They were flimsy and the companies recomendations of putting together one section and raising into place were impossible to do without twisting and bending the brackets.
I ended up having to raise each individual stud and then attach the brackets. I also toenailed into the sill plate other wise the studs would have just toppled over backwards.
The amount of time I wasted playing with the base and then wasted with the brackets I would have had the walls completely up and had the sheathing and roof in place if not shingled! As it was, I was able to get the base, 10 studs in place, one ridge board, and all the stud brackets in 9 hours!!!
I was very dissapointed with this product and would never purchase it again. I will learn how to cut the angles neccesary for the roof and get the job done in a quarter of the time it took me to use this kit.

Was worried about the strength of the brackets because of negative reviews, but was suprised at their strength once mounted.
