Fast Framer Universal Storage Shed Framing Kit - Universal Roof
I think it was a good product. We are not builders of any sort and it was not hard to use. We used 5 kits to make our building. My only suggestion would be to make the pieces a little stiffer or heavier. We wrecked one and ended up buying a whole other kit for the one piece we needed. Plus the edges are sharp so may want to wear gloves. Over all was easy to use and went together fast. Would use again.

Worked well, except the brackets bend very easily when you are turning the arches over to put the brackets on the other side.

Fast framing kit
The instructions were easy to read and follow. The framing kit speeded up the building process! I've already told some of my friends about this product!

nice framing kit
It is easy to use -and the directions are fairly simple to follow. I would recommend pressure treated plywood for roof with shingles - or go with metal roof for long lasting structure

WORST PRODUCT MADE
I am not a beginner handy-woman. I build many things and work with tools daily.
This product is difficult to use, directions are sparse (hope you don't need reading glasses to see the illustrations because one paragraph to explain how to assemble isn't quite enough) The fittings for the ridge aren't wide enough, with having to really hammer the ridges in, tears and gouging of the wood occur.
All of the metal plates are thin and bend with little pressure. So unless you are 8 feet tall and can hold the joints while you raise the frame/gables into place they will bend EVERYTIME.
Don't waste your money on this product. You will be dissatisfied.

Fast Framer Universal Storage Shed Framing Kit
After pricing sheds, decided I wanted to build a shed to store garden and lawn equipment in, instead of in garage. Had previous seen these framers in store so went online and it said in was store. it was not, so ordered online. Gives you several plans for specific sheds, but I modified them and made a 10 X 14 shed. I did all the work myself, although it would have been better to have a helper. Rafters/trusses are flimsy until you get then totally installed. I am a big guy and I sat on roof and it was solid as a rock. recommend these as an easy way to build rafters/trusses

Purchased and built this kit 4 years ago. We had to take the first kit back due to wrong parts in the kit, but NT replaced without a problem. The great thing is the no angle cuts. Makes the shed go together quick. Instructions were easy to follow as well.

Shed Kit build
Over all a good kit idea but needs a little improvement. The brackets are a little too thin in the metal department and one has to go on each side of the wood. This would be better if to brackets were made into one piece and wood just slid into each end. This would take up more space in packaging but would be easier for customer. Also, more accurate cutting measurements from instructions would be awesome. Then you could really do all pre cuts for between the brackets.This would make them true no brainers and move the building process along and make it much quicker for customer.

Nothing fast about it
i bought this kit thinking it would build a high quality shed for do it yourself er was i wrong this kit took 2 times amount of time it should have taken to build this shed. The brackets are flimsy and stand them up they get all bent out of shape. Took 4 guys to assemble the shed only think it save is on making cuts but would be better money spend on buying compound miter saw and make cuts yourself.
