separator After moving from a large house with plenty of storage to a small house with very little, I needed a shed for all of my garden tools and machines. I purchased this 6' x 12' shed with some assembly required. It arrived very quickly and came in 2 boxes, one large, containing the walls, roofing panels, and floor, and one smaller, containing the metal pieces and screws. I found the instruction booklet, and my friend and I proceeded to assemble it.
Step 1: Set aside two to three days of no rain and build a very flat and large platform onto which to mount your shed. I laid a foundation of concrete block and mounted 2x10s of treated lumber as a floor.
Step 2: Organize all parts onto a large, flat area by sorting according to each kind of part. Note: most parts have numbers that are very important. Some numbers are pressed into the metal, some are printed in totally faded paper labels, and the plastic panels have numbers that are huge, but very hard to read.
Step 3: Follow the sequence carefully. Not everything is intuitive, and not everything is included in the steps you need to take, so THINK at all times.
Step 4: Get a series of containers into which you separate all the screws. And DON"T lose any!
Step 5: As instructed, do the floor first, then the walls, and don't totally tighten the bolts just yet. Continue the assembly as per instructions, realizing that you may run out or screws. That's when you have to go to the hardware store or your saved stash of many screws and improvise.
Step 6: Since I assembled the shed next to the back of my garage at only 1-inch from the wall, I had to do some innovation regarding the insertion of the roof panels. A. The panels toward the garage wall can be inserted from the top, but you must attach the ribs at the same time. The first one was a trial, but after that one, the rest were more or less routine, though they required two people to do the insertion. B. Remember, you have the left rib attached to the roof panel as you slide the other side into the other rib. Aligning the rib with the bolt, while adjusting the panel was at first a bit tricky, but we got the flow of it.
Step 7: Everything is very floppy, but once it is all together, it becomes a bit less so.
Step 8: The two roof trusses are supposed to be attached to the roof ridge with a longer bolt. that will not be possible due to the fact that the nuts of the ribs where the trusses go protrude, not allowing the truss to be flush with the roof. Just slide the roof trusses up as high as you can and leave it as is. They should have provided two extra-long bolts for those trusses.
Step 9: Finally, assemble the doors. By now you will have run out of the proper screws. (Imagine if you ordered new ones and had to wait for them to arrive!) So, you "get" screws that are similar and go on. The door instructions are not very clear, but with patience, you will get it.
Step 10: Hanging the door to the frame of the building is easy enough, though one of the doors may not close very well. You may have to redrill the hinge holes and move the hinge over by about 0.2" to allow the door to close.
Step 11: Once all is "finished," you will notice that the floor panes will rise up at the seams, creating a stumbling opportunity. I put roofing nails into the floor along the seams at every 4" with perfect results.

All in all, give yourself plenty of time, find a GOOD friend, and keep your spirits up. The shed is ok for my needs, though the three other shed I purchased some 20 years ago were by far a better material and construction (honeycombed double walls and roof) and by far easier to assemble (two hours vs. 20 hours), but the prices have gone through the roof, and they are no longer affordable in the size I need. They have doubled in price!

Would I have bought it had I known the enormity of the project? Probably not, but now that it is done, I am happy it is there, and it does serve a much need purpose.
