Please avoid at all costs
I was recently contracted by a school to install one of these.
At 2pm on the 2nd day of battling with it myself & labourer cut our loses & packed it back up.
We are both experienced tradesmen with every requisite tool for the job.
We got to the point where we would have needed to make our own mods as the pre-drilled holes were way out & various panels & struts were warped. We decided not to mod it as the mods would not have been galvanised & would have ultimately rusted.
Really tested our patience & ruined a weekend.
Don't even entertain the idea.

Mmmm, difficult shed
We purchased this shed, as we had had a small one in the past which was great. Well, it took 3 days to build, nearly caused a divorce, and came with the most frustrating instructions ever. It was extremely difficult to put together. We built it in pieces, as advised, and then carried them to the final shed area. Beware, the roof is extremely heavy. Not all the screw holes match up, the screws are small and fiddly, we rebuilt the roof twice so it all fitted. The finished product is great, however the doors are of poor sliding quality, and catch the screws on the inside of the shed, and the plastic security handle can easily be broken to release any lock!! We went out and purchased hasp locks for extra security.

You get what you pay for
This is a decent enough shed and will keep the worst of the rain off and I dare say if you build the base carefully enough and are generous with the spray foam you could make it fairly dry. It went together reasonably easily, though if you are or can borrow a perfectionist that will make construction easier.
Unfortunately, it being up less than 3 months, we lost an entire side to the weather, scattering pieces across the surrounding area in a rather dangerous manner. Now I accept that extreme weather is going to test any shed, but the highest recorded gust overnight was 72mph, and the shed is in a comparatively sheltered area. A real storm would have demolished it completely. I really expected it to be a bit more robust.

The shed is a bit of a pain to build but once done it's great, no water leaks and holds everything I need it too and more

Is concrete bas required?
Can this shed be put straight onto slabs as long as they are flat?
Concrete makes an ideal base, however the shed can also be anchored onto level slabs provided that the location is reasonably sheltered from wind.
If laying a base then it's a good idea to also lay polythene sheeting beneath the base to prevent moisture rising into the shed later.
