separator This shed is exactly what we needed to replace our two smaller rotting sheds. The soil where this went in our yard has a high clay/silt content which makes it pretty moist, so it was important for us to go with a plastic shed so that it couldn't rot like a wooden shed. For this same reason we also opted for a concrete pad versus a wooden platform to align with the durability of the shed. We built the pad out of 4" thick solid foundation cap stones as a sort of 'paver patio' as it was more cost effective and DIY friendly for us than pouring a concrete pad. Given the 20' span of this shed, we spent as much time trying to get the pad as level as possible as many people said that it had to be completely level, however we were able to put the shed together without much issue even though our pad was not completely level. When you're putting it together it kind of naturally forces things into alignment. You will however notice when you put it together how poor the instructions are. There are places where the words from other languages are in the English section, some part identifiers are mislabeled, the directions are not very clear, or not well thought out. I don't think whoever wrote the directions actually used them to put the shed together. For example, when putting together the door, they instruct to put the handle on and then flip the door over to put in the window panels on a door that will now not sit flat. Additionally the instructions for the snow load kit are at the very end after the shed has been put together, but realistically they should be integrated for this shed since it comes as part of the kit. If you don't read ahead, you'll actually have to kind of disassemble the roof truss/roof to put the short truss brace in. Save yourself the headache and put the short truss in position (not screwed) before assembling the roof and get the gussets partially screwed into the long truss brace so you'll spend less effort drilling in all the self tapping screws up in the air with your drill right up against the roof panels. I also found it easier to insert the skylight panels into the connectors before putting the short roof panels into the connector as the panels were just too bendy to be able to slide them over the roof panels and into the connector by myself. The directions say that this shed can be put together in 4-6 hours by a few people but they must have had the factory employees put this together because I put this shed together largely by myself except one day with help from my partner and spent several full weekends and evenings after work putting it together and I feel the poor directions directly contributed to that. Bottom line is this is a good shed, but if you need clear instructions you might want to skip this and save yourself the headache.
