“Super nice shed. Well-built and looks very classy and the delivery guy could thread a needle with his truck, so if you got a hard spot to reach when your shed is delivered don’t worry, he can hit it. I am very HAPPY!!!!!”

“I ordered my shed to specific guidelines. And I was concerned that there wasn’t more contact from them. But it was finished ahead of schedule and it was built exactly as ordered! My next concerned. Was that I also wanted it placed in a very specific spot… tucked back in the trees and I live off a County Rd that might make it difficult for delivery. I was concerned that it just wouldn’t be possible. Brian delivered right on schedule and placed it EXACTLY where I wanted it! Even maneuvered around a little tree I wanted to keep! I couldn’t be happier! Truly professionals with attention to detail and made the whole process effortless!”
