Do it yourself Sheds

Has anyone had experience putting together a do it yourself shed from a home store? I just bought an Arrow Newport 10x8 from Home Depot. If you have had experience, how long did it take you? Is there anything that you did that you would have done differently?

I actually had a hell of a time with my kit. Some parts fell out in the back of my truck and I was searching high and low for about an hour. After that it all went together rather easily. I'd say a few hours total. If I were you I'd read the directions 1st, then lay everything out, then build it.

Good Luck

Red face Shed

Hey, I have build about 5 shed's and ahve learned the best base s crushed rock... I compress the rock I used... placed the deck blocks on 4 foot apart ... used pressure treated 4X6's and placed them on/in the deck blocks. used pressure treated 2X4 base then 3/4 plywood flooring and then made the shed free hand or used a kit bepend on that I was working with. I strong base makes all hte differance in the world... specailly when the rainy season comes and the 45mph guests start blowing.
