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.

I constructed the 8'x14' shed - made from two kits. The instructions are fairly easy to follow even for a beginner like me. The most important advice is:- DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOVE ANY A-FRAME SECTION WITHOUT AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE BECAUSE IT WILL BEND! Once built the frame is very strong, I put plywood on the roof and walked on it. I like the size and it makes putting 4'x8' plywood sheets very easy to attach. I used left over wood from a remodeling project on the house. Check out my photos.

Storage Shed Framing Kit
Easy to use. It contains hardware which can be used to build roof trusses and wall frames for small storage buildings.
The product could best be used by a person with an understanding of how a small building is constructed from the ground up...BUT...with a little reading and minimum manual skills, almost anyone can use this product to good advantage, and come out with a great storage shed or small work area.
Actually, this kit is a great way to learn-as-you-build for anyone who would like to explore the possibilities of simple carpentry.
The framing kit does require that you have the physical strength to cut, handle and fasten the required 2x4 lumber and assemblies.
