We ordered it and waited for delivery, which was a pretty reasonable time, since it is direct from the manufacturer. Took about 7 days to get here from the order date. When it arrived it was on a rollback truck and one guy unloaded it. It comes in 4 boxes (instructions are in box 1 of 4). The boxes took up about 1/4 of my one car garage. So make room somewhere.
1) Decide which type of sub-floor you are going to do: concrete, wood, gravel. We did wood (4 x 6 joists every 12 " ), on cinder blocks, with a plywood base. REALLY STRONG!!!
2) Lay out all the peices in all the boxes, organize them in to piles of like peices together. Then just follow the instruction book, it is VERY well explained. We varied a little (didn't assemble the roof frames till we actually needed them)but pretty much stuck to the plain. It is broken down into sections, so you can go little by little if needed. I loved how it told you all the parts, screws, and tools you would need to do the next section. Assembly took two people (my husband & I) about 3 hours. But we work really well together, so don't get upset if it takes you longer LOL :)
3) Two weeks after assembly and it is holding up very well. We have it all organized inside, using the shelves that come with it (plus a workbench my husband made)and wired (he's an electrician) with outlets and ceiling lights. We had a strong storm the other day, and not a drop got inside.
Well, that's about all I can say, except it really is the BEST SHED I EVER OWNED !!!!
It has been a year since we bought and put together this shed. It has held up remarkably well. I am surprised at how dry it has remained inside.My husband keeps all his power tools in it and never have any of them been damaged. We are located in Southern Louisiana, so it's hot & moist. The exterior has not faded (which is amazing, considering the sun) or molded (which is even more amazing, considering the humidity down here). We have had several storms with high winds (enough to knock over our magnolia tree), but the shed had not moved an inch off the foundation. I think that has to do with how well we screwed it down to the solid wood platform we opted for.
To sum up, a year later, and it is still THE BEST SHED I HAVE EVER OWNED !!! :)
I wanted to post some helpful hints that aren't included in the directions, but should be.
1. First, the directions were likely written by a man who knew exactly what was supposed to be done and didn't feel it necessary to explain it to anyone else. Don't feel too badly if you don't get the instructions. It's not you! Also they are about 80 some pages held together by a single staple,which doesn't help, so if you have the time, a three ring binder would be a vast improvement
2. Sub Floor. I used the directions in the manual. I did the wooden subfloor. You do have to put the boards every foot. I tried to take a shortcut and do every two feet, but it didn't work. Every foot or you will have an extremely weak subfloor. Get it as level as possible. It will never be perfectly level since it's not concrete, but you can get pretty close.
3. The "Interlocking" floor boards. Two person job, only because with the 15x8 shed the floor panels are really long. If you can't get a few to interlock completely don't panic. It will work itself out. The best thing to do is move on and stay calm.
4. The Wall. This can be done with one person, if you are like me and prefer to work on your own. If you do better in a group than you may want another person. Here's how it works. Stick the wall in the tab and shove it as far as you can to the left. Then grab your hammer or mallet and using the wooden block that comes in the hardware box, place the wood block along the side of your wall panel toward the bottom of the panel. Pound the living daylights out of it until it won't slide any farther to the left. It's easy, but the directions don't tell you to do that. Before I figured this out I had assembled and taken apart the walls 4 times. It was not fun and admittedly it had me in tears. Hammer and wood block and lots of pounding worked magic and my walls lined up and there was no need to reassemble them! lastly, the corner pieces are hard to put in. There was one I could not get to click in completely, but just as with the floor boards, move on and don't stress. It will work itself out.
5. Trusses. This was relaxing! I got to sit down and move very little. This was one part where the instructions seemed pretty good. Just be sure you are using the right pieces. There will be two trusses with no notches, two with one notch and one that will be a little different and is meant to support the gable.
6. Truss installation. These just slide into place. No screws, which I found odd. if you can't get them to fit into the notch use your hammer to pound them into place. I would suggest tying the notched ones into place with some string so they don't fall. You'll see what I mean once you get to that part. Don't install the middle truss until you need it, which won't be until you are ready to install the gable.
7. Door assembly. Watch the youtube instructional video. The directions don't tell you much here. I still don't know if I did it right. They look even to me, but I can get them to close completely at the top. I'm thinking that it is an alignment issue somewhere. I'll post an update if I figure out what is wrong. like with the roof trusses with notches, I used some string to hold them in place until I was ready to put the gable on. They won't stand by themselves without the gable, but you need them up to install the gable. It's not the greatest design I think, but it apparently works for other people.
8. Roof Panels. There is nothing difficult to understand here, but two people are necessary. you need someone to push on the outside to line the holes up so you can put the screws into place. If you're doing all that and they are still not lining up, look at your truss. If the edge is sticking out, pound it in until it's even with the outside of the wall and try again. The holes should line up now.
9. Top Roof Panels. These are smaller and they just screw into place. We had problems with the middle one, but my husband was able to line it up so now it's okay.
10. Skylights. By the time you get to the skylights your neck is so sore from looking up and your arms are tired from constantly pushing on things, but don't give up you're almost done! These also just screw into place. Since we had trouble with the middle top roof panel we also had trouble getting the middle skylight to snap into place. What I did was use a longer screw than the one they gave me. about an inch and a quarter. The extra length made it easier to get it into the hole and then it lined up without a problem.
11. Shutters. Don't drill holes in your shed. Why they don't have pre drilled holes already is anyone's guess. I tried this with one, but just being off by a teeny tiny bit made it not work at all. So instead I went and got some outdoor glue and I'm going to see if that will work. You can also just leave them off.
Other notes... The parts labeling makes no sense. they label the bags that the hardware is in and then the parts have mythical made up names that don't correlate with what is inside the bag. Just look at the picture and do the best you can. Once you get to the roof they don't really tell you what screws to use, but it is the same as the ones you used on the walls.
It is leakproof! Just had a huge rainstorm and I stood inside of it and no leaking! Even with the alignment issues we had with the roof.
Very please and very happy. :)
