Rubbermaid Vertical Storage Shed 3746-AT-OLVSS
front of shed with hole
I own the Rubbermaid® Vertical Storage Shed (3746-AT-OLVSS). I purchased this handy shed about 5 years ago from a local hardware store for about $250 and it was money well spent. The shed has a 60 foot storage capacity. The outside dimensions are 4’7” W x 3’1” D x 6’ H. The interior dimensions are 4’1” W x 2’ 7” D x 5’7”H. It was very easy to assemble and no tools were necessary; it all just snapped together. You do need more than one person to put it together because it does get a little burdensome trying to snap in the next part if somebody is not holding it still.
The instructions were easy to follow but I do not think I even used them. It just makes sense putting it together because it is well designed.
I have the shed on top of my deck and it comes in handy for storage of patio cushions, and my outdoor BBQ serving platters and utensils and whatever other junk I have laying around outside. It is very convenient to use and the size does not take up too much space on my deck.
I do have a few criticisms about the shed. It does get brittle especially in the winter and it has developed a hole in the front from trying to close it. The way the shed closes is a bit of a pain and I have since installed a slide latch to the top because I found that in high winds (I live by the ocean) it would pop open unless I put a padlock on it. Because I am notorious for losing keys to these type of locks I found it more easy to add the latch.
The other criticism I have about the shed is that it has small holes on the back for the purpose of putting in shelves. I do not use the second set of shelves because the patio cushions I store in there are piled very high in the shed and would not fit if I had the shelf in there. As a result, I get wasp nests in there as you can see in the picture. I have tried to block these holes on numerous occasions but they always get in.
The shed is lightweight so I am able to move it around to clean around it. It power washes very easily to clean any dirt that builds-up on it, making it look as good as new.
Overall I am very satisfied with this shed and I would recommend it to others.More Rubbermaid Outdoor Storage Shed Reviews
