Great small storage shed/tent
I needed more room to store some of my yard equipment in and purchased this one due to the other reviews. It went up easy after a few alterations from the instructions.
PROS: 1. Strong material that should hold up well from our winter weather.
2. Just big enough for a few pieces of yard equipment. I’m storing my trailer and lawn sweeper in there, along with my wheel barrel in the trailer.
3. Should keep animals out as the tent material sets right down to the ground.
4. Follow page 5 #3. Assemble Legs & Roof Frame, A….. as it states. Don’t try to install corner leg bend last.
CONS: 1. It was missing all the nuts for the 10115 bolts, but I always use nylon locking nuts anyway.
2. One of the tubes was flattened on the end and I had to straighten it to get it to slide in the others.
ALTERATIONS MADE: 1. I pop-riveted all the frame tubing (one pop-rivet per connection) to hold the frame tight, but any of the tubes the tent material had to go through I did after the building was completed.
POP-RIVET FIRST: 800176 to 800177 (3x), 800075 to 800071 (2x), 800076 to 800071 (2x),
800077 to 800071 (4x), 800361 to 800374 (4x)
POP-RIVET SECOND (after cover is installed): 800075 to 800177 (2x), 800076 to 800176 (2x), 800077 to 800176 (1x), 800077 to 800177 (1x)
2. I installed a 1” thin-wall pipe in the door bottom hem. It is easier to roll up and it rolls up tighter than without it.

shed in a box
I needed an inexpensive shed to store bikes and the size and price were right so I bough the shed in a box and I am very pleased. It was easy to put together and can also be easily moved if I decide to use it somewhere else. The instructions were easy to follow. I would recommend this shed.

I received my shipment today! 6/22/11
After receiving it, I did a complete inventory.
Everything was here, however, I did have one suggestion for them.
With my shipment, 4 pipes were unreadable. I got it figured out, after doing some easy measuring on the 4 unidentifiable pipes.
In a few months, I will be constructing this, to park my new riding lawn mower in. John Deere Model D110

I use this portable shed to store my snow blower and my lawn mower. It was easy to erect and has withstood 70 mile an hour winds, blowing snow and rain. It is a very good product.

Super Value Shed
I bought this shed a couple of years ago and it is still going strong. So strong that even a 10" diameter tree falling on it did not completely ruin the shed. I was able to chain saw the tree away, bend a couple of the support tubes and return the shed to become fully serviceable. The cover is extremely durable and the door openings make for convenient in and out movement of my lawn tractor and cart. A great product.

Good little shed
Easy to put together. Light enough, once together, to move around. So far this shed has held up very well through the winter. I have it next to a fence so the wind has not been much of an issue for the shed but it has kept the rain off. I bought it for my atv which just fits. There is some room left on each side for other items. The only complaints I have is the zippers on the door flap do not have zipper stops so when you unzip it and push the flap aside or flip it onto the top of the shed it will unzip completely and fall on the ground. Not a huge issue since it does not take much effort to zip it back together. Made my own zipper stops with a couple of safety pins. Some kind of tie sewn into the seams to hold the door open and out of the way would have been handy. The curved tube pieces on the bottom of each corner are supposed to be turned in and I would have to drive my atv over them. Fixed this by turning them a different way. All in all it is a good little shed.

Awesome little shed
This is a great little shed for storing those miscellaneous extras. My shed was cluttered with a lawn mower, air conditioners, garden tools, etc. All of this found a new home in the shed in a box!! It was fairly easy to assemble, it is easier if you have someone to help hold things together. I built a 6x6 platform out of 4x4's and 3/4" plywood with the frame bolted directly to the wood, so it is extremely sturdy! Snow slides right off of the roof too which is nice. I am putting up another one this summer to store pellets in. This is a really good buy for the money if you need extra storage space!!

Shed in a Box
I needed a cover for a couple of motorscooters. This filled the bill easily and inexpensively. It took an hour to assemble and was pretty easy. The result is sturdy enough for the summer, though I would be concerned about a heavy snow load.

Great Storage Solution
I purchased this to store large camping gear in the off season, and when not in use. I didn't have the money to purchase one of those $500 vinyl storage units at the home store, so I took a gamble on this unit, and have not been disappointed. Assembly was simple and straightforward and took 2-3 hours by myself on a very windy day. If you have a helper, and it is not windy, an hour will do. The shed has held up well to 6" snow loads and wet snow just slides off the roof thanks to it's steep pitch. My only gripe about the product, and a small one at that, is the anchors that are supplied with it. The ground in my area is very sandy and they just didn't hold down very well. I made my own out of some angle iron for $15 and have not had any problems. If you have normal dirt or clay ground in your area the anchors should do you fine.
