BIG MAX ULTRA

Rubbermaid BIG MAX ULTRA next to smaller Rubbermaid shed
I have been a fan of RUBBERMAID Products for as long as I can remember. From household storage containers, trash cans to sheds. So it was no surprise that when it came time to buy a large outdoor storage shed I chose the Rubbermaid Big Max Ultra.
I wanted a shed with plenty of room and the Big Max Ultra delivered. Inside its roomy 7'w x 10' 6"d x 7' 11" h are my family's Christmas storage containers (Rubbermaid, of course), 3 bikes and most of my yard and garden tools. I bought my shed about 3 years ago at my local Home Depot for around $600.00. The good folks at Home Depot helped me load the boxes onto my truck and my neighbor's son help me unload it at home. The Big Max Ultra was easy to assemble. It came with a complete set of step-by-step visual and written instructions.
Before assembling it, I did my homework and had cleared the space in my backyard and built a subfloor made of compressed 2x 4's. Once the subfloor was level the assembly began. With the help of my neighbor’s son we had it up in approximately 2.5 hours. The only tools that I needed included my screwdriver drill set, a rubber mallet, a couple of step-ladders, a circular saw and tape measure. I used the saw to cut the 2- 2 x 6 roof supporting beams.
The fact that the majority of the panels lock into each other is a thing of beauty. The panels fit snug and I have not experienced any leaks. And believe me, we get some good thunderstorms in Dallas! We also get plenty of sun and my Big Max Ultra has weathered that too.
This shed is very durable. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a functional, well built outdoor storage shed.More Rubbermaid Outdoor Storage Shed Reviews
