I would recommend this item to a friend.
Good quality kit, well done, follow the directions!
Two people who have the skills and tools could get the frame up and roof up over a long three-day weekend if the base was ready to go. The 10x12 foot shed is spacious and the lofts are incredibly useful for storage. Overall the kit was well put together, with clean and clear quality construction materials in the studs and OSB, and good instructions. The shipment arrived by lift gate truck to our driveway and arrived undamaged. Materials were tightly packed and protected by heavy-duty cardboard on oversized pallets. My only comments on the directions were occasional lapses such as showing you how to make one assembly and not mentioning you will need two, which was obvious. The other criticism was that the directions were written for the specific barn we ordered but the material kit had pieces in it for two models which share a lot of the same parts, but have model-specific stuff as well.
- High-quality lumber, with good studs. Quality OSB, plenty of screws, and nails. The directions were good.
- Building the gable ends on the ground out to the siding and trim was a good idea but those things are heavy (about 100 pounds) and the directions just said to just "lift them onto the top plates". For the lift, you will need at least two strong people.
