Handy Home Savannah 8' x 12' Storage Building Kit with Floor

Finished Savannah Storage Shed. What a beauty.
Our house does not have a garage and there is very little storage space as it is. So buying a shed was a no brainer. I needed a place where I could hang my power tools, shovels and Scag lawn mower. I have another shed but it is a small little rubber thing that is used for my kids bikes. I purchased this shed at Home Depot for under 700 dollars. The shed itself is 8' x 12'. It did not come with a door though. I was able to take measurements and find a steel door.
I love building things. I thought the shed was pretty easy to put together. I was able to build it all in about a weeks time. I built the shelf all by myself without any assistance. I used the basic nails and screws that came with the shed. Those were more than enough to keep the actual structure itself intact. The main part of the floor (the platform) was pretty simple however I did add my own foundation. I used four columns of vertical cement blocks to keep the shed raised off the ground. If I ever need to move it in the future this would allow for a much easier way.
Also when it came to the doors, I did have to do a little measuring and some power cutting. I also had to buy some hinges and steel siding to connect the door.
The shed does what it is supposed to do. I don't have any complaints about it. The pre-primed siding has kept the insects out and mildew from building up. I guess the only thing I wished that the shed had come with was skylights. I might invest in one eventually. I also plan on painting the plywood a light blue color. The durability of this shed is excellent. I would most certainly recommend this shed to people that like building things.
If you aren't really into building, I would go with something simpler. This specific shed will require that you craft your own door. The only thing left that I need to do with my shed is insert a ramp and paint it.Click Here to see the Full Handy Home RangeClick Here For More Handy Home Shed Reviews
