Ease of Assembly
Product Review (submitted on 20 September 2017):
I was wondering how hard it was going to be to assemble - there were mixed reviews about ease of assembly. However, I found the instructions to be the best I have encountered, with comprehensive illustrations and tips, and only a little 'Chinglish'.
I was able to assemble this completely by myself in spite of the instructions stating that two people were required - probably this statement was more applicable to larger sheds.
The shed came in a narrow pack of loose panels. Each side wall and the roof was assembled out of a number of smaller panels and edge channels. The shed would have represented greater value for money and quicker assembly if the side walls and roof were prefabricated, or at least available as an option for the less talented or those for whom time is an issue.
The assembly was straight forward, with little to no issues with alignment of the screw holes provided a little care was taken. I found that a pair of G-clamps was invaluable to hold channels firmly in alignment while fastening. A small rectangle of metal to stop the channel getting crushed by the G-clamp was helpful too. The only assembly issue that I found was that the support strut bracket on the lid had holes that were slightly too large for the pop rivets supplied. One day I'll get around to replacing the rivets and using some washers on the new rivets to properly clamp the strut bracket. There was no shortage of screws in the pack, unlike some cheap sheds with low quality fasteners and where you only get one spare!
In summary, this shed was a lot more refined that lower cost ones that I have built. You get what you pay for!
