Rated 4 out of 5 Metal shed
The shed isn't the easiest to put together it seems like a lot of the holes don't match up. The instructions may as well be in Chinese as not the best but I made a lot of it up as I went. All in all though a decent shed for the price

Rated 2 out of 5 Difficult shed
The literature said that assembly time was 6 hours. In fact it took 19 manhours. I was disappointed with the height of the doorway. Anyone over 5feet 6 inches have to stoop to get in and the internal height at the edges is poor. There were 3 roof leaks which I have yet to sort out and there are numerous points along the bottom where water comes under the frame. A fork fell against the door and dented the thin metal badly with the result that I have some trouble in closing the door.No doubt that I will eventually solve the problems but how I wish that I had gone for a wooden or concrete structure.

Phew - it's completed. It does look very good. It keeps out the rain and provides a good amount of storage. It has a 12 year guarantee and the metal does seem well protected. So it does most of what you want in a shed. Yardmaster helpfully note that you should not sleep in it though!
At a minimum lay down a level slab base before you start. Arrange for some good weather - you will be spending a lot of time outside building it. I have built it in a wet November and it wasn't a peak experience. Some of the structural metal seems flimsy but actually when it is all put together is feels quite sturdy. You will be putting in a lot of self tappers and I found a ratchet screwdriver the best weapon. You have to be careful not of overtighten the screws as you are turning them into thin metal. If you think you will want to insulate it, to cut down condensation, then tackle the roof first before fitting it in place - extruded polystyrene worked well.
Gripes: doorway is quite low (about 5 foot 9) - I am over 6 foot and managed to crack my head on it a few times: the doors and the slide mechanism are pretty primitive, and I intend to mod these to make them easier to move: no shelves: a tricky manual and complex parts numbering system
