Terrible!
July 11, 2012
"Do NOT get this product. The metal is very cheap!! It bends and shapes its self and makes constructing this thing so much harder then it really should have. It is not a "easy-do-it-your-self". It took my girlfriend, my dad, my brother-in-law and myself to put build it. AND it took about a month to do so because the instructions and very unclear. Plus the cost of wood is kind of expensive and we ended up spending about $300 or $400 MORE then we thought. I very very!! strongly DO NOT recommend this product. Believe me when i say that it would so be much easier and way less stressful if you just buy a pre-made one. Also, it doesnt tell you how to build a bottom. They just assume that your going to put it on cement or grass. Well, we dont have grass, or a cement slab big enough for the size shed we built. My gf and I watch a lot of home improvement shows and the one thing that really sticks in my head is never put wood to earth. Its asking for so many problems. So we had to buy a bunch of cement bricks to go under the shed to its not touching the ground. Just, for the sake of your sanity, DO NOT BUY THIS!!! it will be such a disappointing, wasteful, and upsetting part of your life. And like a lot of people in America, I know for a fact thats something no body needs."

Fail Safe!!!
May 20, 2011
"These brackets are the best! I a 50 yr old woman and built a small shed with 1 kit by myself and it was so perfect that I ordered 3 more kits and built a 10x24 foot greenhouse. If you can reed a measuring tape and use a saw you can't make a mistake."

"This kit comes with easy to follow instructions and really makes building a shed easy. The parts are lettered and correspond to instructions. My daughter and I built a 10 X 22 ft shed for my husband in 3 weekends. I would definately recommend this product."

Best Item found
July 25, 2010
"This fast framer is the best item I've found yet. This is the easiest to follow and put up with only one other person to help putting up the longer boards. My son has even bought a kit to make a playhouse for his kids (they even helped)I would recommend this for anyone who wants a shed,shop, or playhouse etc."

Great Customer Service!
March 4, 2010
"Haven't put together yet, but they have
great customer service.
I was missing an angle and the instructions
I received had gotten torn during delivery.
One call and I receive the angle and instructions
the next day.
I look forward to building my shed and to purchasing additional kits.
I recommend this product to anyone who is
considering a shed or small building.

Framing kit
October 1, 2009
"I have used 3 of these kits together before to build a 10 x 22 shop, but it was the standard roof, not this gambrel roof kit.
The kit is easy to use, and makes a good shop, just remember to cut all your lumber EXACTLY to length. If you don't, it will never square up. And put the lumber in each framing piece exactly the same way. Making them all the same depth into each framing corner also makes the whole shed or shop turn out much better.
I built my shop by myself, and about the only help I needed was to place the long roof runners in place.
It is easy, so go build you own shop or shed.
