Building a Shed-from scratch or kit?

I am planning on having a Shed put in this spring.
I was thinking about builing it myself and was wondering about the do it yourself kits that you can have shipped to you in some pre-constrcuted sections etc..

Are these systems easy to use?
Any concerns over structure?
Who would you recommend?

I did a do-it-yourself kit from Home Depot about 3 years ago...

For the price it is not a great deal at all...

It was for a 10x10 shed. From what I could remember it cam with about
12 2x3x8's
8 2x4's for the roof..
Paneling for the exterior walls
and the doors...

Rough estimate I would say the lumber wouldnt have been more then a few hundred dollars.. For a kit that cost about 600 or more...

On top of that the kit did not include any sort of floor.... Nor the plywood for the roof...

If you have the carpentry skills to put together the kits, then you would have the skills to buy the lumber from a yard, and a book on building sheds... The only difference would be the lumber wouldnt be all precut...

Or you can buy one..
