    Looking for reviews/input from anyone who has used one of these. Are they cost effective vs. building from scratch or buying a complete shed kit? How about durability/sturdiness? Thanks, any info is appreciated.

    Also would be awesome if someone who had used these could supply the materials list, just trying to get an idea of the complete cost...

    It's not that hard to learn to cut a few angles, or drive a few more nails.
    I'd not spend $50 for the kit

    and you can get those 'connectors' pretty cheaply at lowes/home depot..less than 50 for 12 of them..

    My husband used them building my run, and they weren't that expensive at Lowes/HD..

    Thanks for the input, I've never tried building anything this size so was looking for anything to make it simpler. I read one reviewer on Amazon with a similar lack of experience saying that after using the kit he realized he didn't really need it.
