    I have one sitting on my back porch I bought and haven't used. Mine is a 7'x8' frame kit. You buy 2 kits to make a 8'x14' building.

    I bought one! As others have said the box is HEAVY. [​IMG] I have been reading and reading the instructions. I think I can do this! The husband said he will NOT help me. The directions are very simple and straight forward. I am planning on making the 7 x 8 foot size. The kit covers 7x8, 8x14, and 10x22 sizes. When I get the nerve to start I will put pictures on the forum. [​IMG]

    Oh I do want to see how hard this is to assemble. Sooooo...when are you starting it? What kind of wood do you have to buy?

    it tells you all the wood you need...1 1x4x8 and 1 1x4x12 and 19 2x4x8 and 7 2x4x8(pressure treated) etc. It tells you how long to cut the wood and a letter code to mark it and that size nails and where to put them. I'm telling you, I think a kid could do this if they were allowed to use a skil-saw!
  9. What exactly is in the box? I thought it's just a bunch of brackets?

    So how much added cost do you figure it will be over and above the cost of the kit?
