GG's 8 x 8 Garden Shed

I purchased this garden shed about 8 years ago from Home Depot for about $800. I think the model number is 18276-1. It is 8X8 and is attached to the cement pad below. I couldn't find my original paperwork, so I'm using my best guess on this.

My son, my brother and I put it together. It was pretty easy with clear instructions and pictures. Everything was included. We used screwdrivers, hammers and a robo-wrench. It took us about 5 hours total excluding the cement pad, which my brother laid about 10 days before.

I use it for my gardening supplies and outdoor holiday decorations. I have been very happy with the shed - it has held up well. I want to add some kind of lighting and I want to change the shelving units I have, but I haven't gotten around to that yet. Right now I only have one shelf unit along the back wall. I would like to put shelves around all three walls with baskets or bins to hold small items. That would help with organization since I tend to lose things.

The only issue I have is that the color of the doors has weathered differently than the body of the shed. I’m not sure why. So, my next project is to embellish the doors somehow. I was just going to paint the centers, maybe white, but now I think I might stencil them. I have two options I am considering – I love roosters, so maybe I can find some stencils with large roosters, otherwise I might do some kind of quilt squares, a different one on each door.

I would recommend this shed if you have a small yard and need some extra space. It’s compact and it looks cute in the landscape.
