Keter Horizon Resin Shed, 7 x 3-ft
Buyer be aware
I bought this shed in March and half way in assembly I've realize that there is to parts missing and I cannot finish building it without them.
There is a note inside the box "IF THERE ARE MISSING OR BROKEN PARTS' DO NOT RETURN TO THE STORE" instead order the parts from their website - so I thought good because I'm half way done building it and I do not have a truck to get it back to the store.
I ordered parts online in March, about 10 days later I have receive ONE part, so I emailed them and the answer was they do not have the other part in stock and that I have to wait. It's now May and the Shed is still not finish and their respond to my emails (every two weeks) is to wait.

Handy shed for small spaces!
We purchased this size of shed as we had a small area to work with; it fits perfectly and looks really good! The only problem is that one of the slide posts on the fixed-side door broke through the plastic of the door, but it still goes into it's hole in the floor so does still function. Surprising the amount of 'stuff' this shed will hold! And it's stood up to very heavy winds - it stands in a corner with fence on both back and one side of it, so that may help.

Looks are deceiving.
I bought this product based on a picture the size that you see online. I tried to see it at the store and they showed me the same picture. Notice that there are no demo units on display at any store.
The reason for that is because this shed is extremely flimsy and built very poorly. EVERYTHING is cheap premolded thin plastic with ONE metal post holding the back wall up. Unbelievable!
The kicker here is that after you've bought, you hope that this thing stabilizes as you build but don't be fooled. It never does! And then when your done it's too late to return because it snaps together and a pain to dismantle. It definitely looks good from the outside and from pictures , you may even think there is some wood. Don't be fooled like I was.
I already own a Royal shed for $300 more and it has lasted 15 years without a hitch--even dismantled it and moved house with it. Now ketek is a different story - this shed has only lasted 6 months. I have just finished picking up the pieces after this junk shed flew apart in 30km/hr winds!! First the roof came off and then the shed just wobbled to pieces. I would expect a $600 shed to stand up to 30km/hr winds.
It was easy to put together because it's like stacking LEGO. I think LEGO would stand up better than this flimsy plastic shed.
Also the warranty specifically states that it does not cover wind damage - the company obviously knows how cheap their product is. Avoid this product. Don't make the mistake I made.

Built this myself, instructions are perfect and the shed went together exactly as indicated.
One person, a couple of hours and you're done!!!
Can't say enough about the quality, would recommend to anyone!!!

I am impressed
I bought this shed based on it's size, it is perfect for the space between my neighbours house and mine.
Assembles extremely easily. Instructions are laid out very well.
There is a misprint in the instructions, for the roof it lists a part #HTMA, however on page 21 of the instructions, it lists it as ITMA, took me a while to figure it out.
I really like how they have used essentially 10 parts to make this shed. For exampe, the doors are exactly the same, however depending on where you put the hinges and blanking plates one becomes the left, one becomes the right.
I put it together myself in about an 2 hours (3 beers!)
Everything fits nicely, and goes together fast. Nice product!
I built a base out of PT 2x4 and 5/8 PT Ply, should last me years.
Very smart the way they designed it, well done Keter.
