Home Depot Storage Shed Size 8'-12'

I'd probably say this Home Depot Storage shed is best for it's value and accessibility.


The shed was pretty much straight forward and easy to put together as the instructions were very clear. In terms of any parts missing, I did have to buy some bolts which were not included in the shed assembly kit. I had some help putting together the shed but I was able to have it prepped and finished in approximately 8 hours done over a two day span.

I used pressure treated 2 by 4's, piers of concrete, a hammer, nails, a tape measure and saw to build the shed. They were not supplied by the assembly kit. The only problem which I came across were the missing parts, but after informing Home Depot, I was given the said parts for free.

I use this shed for mostly tools and some dry foods. I found the shed to be more than satisfactory and it hasn't sprung a leak just yet (although I've only had it for approximately a year now).

The asphalt roof is extremely durable and the wood itself is of good quality. I haven't had any problems with the shed just yet and I would definitely recommend it to others.

shed walls
by: John

Hi Pete,
From my knowledge and a bit of research I would not expect the walls to be pressure treated. From my experience the floor timbers would be pressure treated as these are the only bit that is in contact with the ground. Pressure treatment gives the wood resistance to fungal and insect attack. The floor itself and all timber above is assumed to be dry and so therefore not vulnerable to fungal attack (fungus only grows in wood at higher moisture content).

So, the solution to your problem may be to build your own shed or choose a shed made from metal, plastic or resin.

Check out some of the other reviews on this page and also the Arrow and Rubbermaid review pages.

Cheers

John

Pressure treated lumber-Walls?
by: Pete

Hello,
Are the walls made out of pressure treated lumber? We have termites and Carpenter ants and I need something resistant to these.
Thanks,
Pete
