It doesn't get much easier or more convenient than this Arrow Garden Shed 8 X 3 Storage Building. You can get the storage you need for all of your outdoor stuff, a package that won't take up your entire yard, and a price that is far, far less than many outdoor storage buildings. Sound interesting? Well, it absolutely is - here are some of the particulars of this unique garden building.

This shed is ideal for smaller spots with its relatively slim 8 ft. x 3 ft. footprint. That means you get plenty of storage space for all of your tools, toys, and equipment without crowding your yard or other outdoor site. To add to the convenience, there are four storage shelves, a tool hanger rack, plus a locking handle to keep all of the stuff you put on those shelves and hanger secure. The swing-open back doors make access easy, and the included steel floor frame is perfect if you decide you want to add a plywood floor finish at the time of installation or down the road.

Lots of function, lots of convenience, and lots of value in a space-saving package. It's difficult to imagine a more complete and cost-effective package out there for shelter shoppers, which is why so many of them opt for this Arrow Garden Shed 8 X 3 Storage Building for their garden storage needs.

* Please check local building codes and CC&Rs for any restrictions related to installing an outdoor structure or to see if a building permit is required.

Instructions Are a Challenge to Interpret
July 1, 2013
There is no way around it; the instructions for this shed are very poorly written and make the assembly of it a big chore. From containing pictures that are lacking in clarity to not giving enough detail about which fasteners are to be used for which section, this manual is very hard to follow. It is so bad that most of the time, I was unsure if I was properly assembling the pieces the right way. Currently, I am working by myself on this, but the job really requires an additional person.

Inexpensive Option to be Used In Desperation
June 27, 2013
I will advise you right off the bat that you steer clear of this product. The instructions most likely were translated into English from some Asiatic language. As a result, they generally do not say what they mean, and the diagrams do not make life any easier, and are generally inaccurate and misleading. So far, I have spent thirty hours on the assembly process and am nowhere close to being finished. The nut/bolt option when using the plastic inserts is a complete disaster. Even though I view myself as being good at building things, this shed requires an immense degree of intuition and should not be given a second thought by the novice. Let's face it; it is a metal shed that can do what you want it to do once you have constructed it, and it is the cheapest option out there on the market. Just get ready for poor instructions and lengthy assembly time.

Good Place to Store Stuff
June 27, 2013
This is a shed that is really nice. We would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a product that has lower pricing to other comparable products while maintaining a high level of quality. Prior to purchasing this shed, we would like to make two recommendations: first, setup is made much easier if you have in your possession a cordless power screwdriver, and second, you need at least two people in order to set this shed up. This aside, it is a great purchase. It is very easy to keep clean, and it remains dry most of the time. Despite needing to buy a board for the floor, the foundation that comes with this shed makes it very easy to set up and install. One note: it does take some time to install (it took us eight hours to get it assembled from start to finish). The big challenge with assembly is to keep your orientation where it needs to be, which due to the shed's complexity, this can be a bit of a challenge at times. These minor inconveniences aside, the pluses are quite numerous. Not only was it very easy to purchase online but also it came relatively quickly. Because we had just moved into a townhouse with a small yard and needed additional outdoor storage, this shed proved to be the answer to all of our needs. Best of all, it is fairly inconspicuous.

Time Consuming to Assemble
June 26, 2013
Get ready for the long haul when the time comes for you to assemble this product. It took us fourteen hours to assemble this product. The plastic variants of this product take only a few moments to assemble, but the downside is that they are two times as costly as the metal version.

Good Value
June 26, 2013
Granted, the instruction manual is quite challenging to read, (and I recommend taking a good chunk of time reading it before assembling.) Despite the assembly problem, this is a product that is good value for the money. The first one I needed two days, while the second one I needed just one.

Challenging to Assemble, but Good Value for the Money
June 26, 2013
While there are some negatives, overall, this is a good shed, and it is even better when you consider what you are getting for your money. It is quite sturdy once it has been assembled (much sturdier than it would initially appear to be). Unfortunately, the directions are overly ambitious in stating that it would only take a couple of hours to assemble (it took us between six to eight hours.) Of that time, close to two hours was spent simply trying to find each piece. One major issue is that there are some inconsistencies with the text and the diagrams, so be sure to double check your work or else you will be in trouble. One tip for anyone assembling this shed: if the holes do not line up, then the chances are you have probably chosen the wrong piece. One piece of advice: I strongly recommend building a frame to go underneath the shed. In my case, I used three eight foot 4 x 4's and they did the job quite effectively.

Not For The Fainthearted
June 26, 2013
After taking close to twelve hours to assemble, it goes without saying that it would have been much easier to assemble this shed if the manual were better written (the diagrams were not well laid out at all.) This shed is a big challenge to assemble, and if things are slightly off in their alignment, then be ready to drill quite a few holes to compensate for the problem. Much of this assembly can be done with one person, while there are specific instances where two people will be required. In my package, the two front corners of the shed were dented (the box did not show any external damage. Overlapping parts are not necessarily cut to fit, thereby adding another level of difficulty to the assembly process.

Very Convenient for Use
June 26, 2013
If you have unused area in your yard, then put this shed in that part of your property. Currently, I have two sheds on the side of my yard, and I plan to purchase three more once I have completed by big backyard remodeling job (all of which will go behind a planned art studio.) Overall, they are easy to build; just be sure to read the directions carefully prior to assembling.

Would Buy It Again If Needed
June 26, 2013
If I needed to buy a shed again, then I would definitely choose this one! Even though it took us close to eight hours to assemble, the finished product is one with which we are very happy. There were some minor problems along the way, such as difficult to interpret instructions and parts that were not well marked. One nice feature of this product is that there is an 800 number that you can call when you get stuck. We did, they were very helpful.

Posed Some Challenges to Assemble
June 26, 2013
There are some potential design flaws that contributed to the difficulty in assembling this shed. For starters, the roof and the floor both come in several pieces, when it would be much easier for the assembly process if they both came in one eight foot piece. Get ready to be overwhelmed with bolts and screws, because the design requires quite a few. Personally, I feel it would have been easier to pick up a few 2 x 4 x 8s, 1 x 4 x 8s, and siding, and then build my own shed, since it took two people one entire Saturday to do the job.

Good at Keeping Things Tight and Dry
June 26, 2013
Even though putting this shed together will require you to enlist some extra help, it is definitely worth it. Several years ago, I found myself in need of putting up a shed and discovered that this was my only feasible option (my housing association specified that outside buildings could not extend any higher than my wall, which would be six feet.) It did take a good day and a half to assemble, but once put up, you can move it quite easily. Thanks to this shed, I was able to get some of the stuff out of my garage.

Good Place to Store Outdoor Equipment
June 26, 2013
The process of assembling this shed will take a day, but this is easliy rendered moot because these sheds are designed to last for a very long time. This is a great buy and is ideal for anyone that finds themselves living in a master planned community, such as those in the southwestern United States. It can easily fit under a six foot standard block fence and is ideal when it comes to store any of your lawncare or other outdoor equipment.

Sturdy with Plenty of Space

This is an extremely complicated shed that took way too much time to assemble. In addition, the directions were extremely challenging to decipher, adding to the difficulty. Overall, it is a spacious product that is quite sturdy.

All Around Exemplary Quality
June 26, 2013
When it comes to price and quality, this shed offers a one two punch that is very difficult for competitors to match. From the extra bag of miscellaneous parts to the largest parts of the superstructure, everything emanated quality. The base needed to be both square and level, but once accomplished, it is very easy to assemble. The installation manual is very easy to read (must have been written by a native English speaker). Granted, putting all of the nuts and bolts in place was time consuming, but the measurements made it quite easy to accomplish.

Two Person Project

Although the shed is not difficult to assemble, it is certainly a two person project. The selling point for me was the good storage capacity and the affordable price.

Setup Process is Lengthy
June 25, 2013
This affordable shed accomplishes its purpose. However, you will want to consider the amount of time involved in constructing it, as it may take 8-12 hours with the high number of screws and bolts included.

Setup Needs Two People
June 25, 2013
Keep in mind that you will need another personís help with this project. As we were finishing, we found that some of the holes in the shedís rear wall were misaligned. As a solution, we drilled new holes in the rear wall.

Happy with this Shed
June 25, 2013
I could not be happier with the superb quality of this shed. The doors open and close smoothly and without a hitch, making access to storage quick and simple. Also impressive is the water-resistance of this shed, as it has been through some powerful rainstorms. This is a great product!

Great Fit for a Small Space
June 25, 2013
The compactness of this unit makes it a superb fit when space is limited. Keep in mind that the doors do swing open. You will also want to assemble the shed on a cool day, as we constructed on a 105 degree day.

Is this a metal building or a snap together plastic type?
By Magan on February 7, 2013

Answer:
This is a metal stoage shed. For assembly specs, please view this manual.

By Pat from Monrovia, MD on March 21, 2013
Can the roof be reversed so the slope is towards the front?

By Magan on March 21, 2013

Answer:
It cannot because all walls are constructed to fit the slope of the roof.
