Yardmaster Shiplap Sliding Door Apex Shed 10 x 12 x
worst shed ever
They clearly mis-spelt Shiplap on this shed there seems to be a p where there should be a t.
New base laid perfectly flat, frame perfectly square, still roof did not line-up, eventually roof was pulled into some kind of alignment, using the pre-drilled holes as per woefully inadequate instructions (which then pulled walls and corners out of line).
Do not over-tighten screws as the self tappers are going into such flimsy tin sheeting they will shred the hole, resulting in leaks.
The doors are so flimsy if you push hard enough they will pop out of the runners, so don,t bother with padlock.
Anyone with cordless driver could remove in minutes enough panels to walk in, if it doesn't fall down first.

Lets get one thing out of the way, the instructions:-
I've read varying disparaging statements about the quality and clarity of the manual. I found the instruction manual really simple and straight forward to follow. If, when you was a kid, have ever played with Mechano, Lego and the like, you will have no problems in assembling this building. It is largely a pictorial manual giving clear step by step instruction - providing good details in the diagrams e.g. what size of screw to use where and whether or not to use a washer.
The instructions state that it will take eight hours for two people to build the shed. This is probably accurate - I took about ten hours largely on my own to build it. I only have a rudimentary education and found no troubles in erecting this shed, so anyone else should be fine.
Overall the shed is excellent. A level and flat (or very slightly pitched toward the rear) base is an absolute must, also checking your base frame is absolutely square. It won't cost anything to occasionally check for square and plumb throughout your build.
Initially the shed IS flimsy but when all of the struts, beams and panels are in place it becomes quite rigid. The shed is secured to the concrete floor with six brackets, coach screws and plugs - this is the supplied 'anchor kit'.
The only down sides that I found was that there were barely enough 'long' screws to go around, and the screws and bolts are quite soft. A few of the screws and bolts suffered from cam out. If you get a screw that is just spinning in its designated hole - replace it for a fresh one. You will usually find that part of the thread has been stripped away. Also the roof washers are not rubber, they're kind of a hard white plastic? But seemingly watertight none the less.
All in all I would not hesitate to buy another one of these sheds - because it's a good product but more importantly, when you're building it, it makes you feel like a kid again!
