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.

I Like the Low Profile
May 17, 2014
The assembly of this shed was pretty involved, but it was manageable. If you want to put a plywood floor in, you have to do that yourself (lumber isn’t included). I thought the door was a little flimsy, but the unit does stay dry inside and protects my tools, tiller, and wheelbarrow well. I have a six-foot fence, so I like this shed’s low profile—it can’t be seen from the street. I’d definitely buy this model again.

Would Buy It Again If Needed
March 26, 2014
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.

One-Man Job
March 10, 2014
Other than having some help when attaching the tool rack, I built this shed by myself. It took me 12 hours altogether, over a couple of days. The most important things to do are to make sure your working surface is completely level and make sure you keep the frame square. (I used concrete blocks.) If you don’t do those things, the holes won’t line up right. Also, make sure you place each panel correctly. I had to disassemble the sides and two back panels because I wasn’t paying attention to detail—wasted time! I’m very happy with my new shed!

Good Place to Store Stuff
January 25, 2014
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.

Posed Some Challenges to Assemble
December 14, 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.

Not For The Fainthearted
December 3, 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.

Just What I Wanted
October 7, 2013
This shed is great—it’s exactly what I wanted. Yes, the instructions were unclear and hard to follow sometimes. Sometimes they didn’t give enough details. I ended up installing a couple panels incorrectly but was able to work around that. But the overall quality of the shed is great!

Negatives and Positives
August 18, 2013
Negatives: Assembly directions are confusing. Some parts were missing, some were bent or scratched. Took three people over ten hours to put it together. Suggestion to manufacturer: Don’t lump all the screws and nuts together in one package! Separate them by type or size or something. Positives: Great shelves. Great tool hanger. Overall, a very nice shed now that it’s together!

Sturdy When Finished—Flooring Can Be a Problem
August 8, 2013
You might think the shed is going to be flimsy when you’re putting it together, but it’s surprisingly sturdy when it’s finished. Some key tips: (1) a flat surface is essential! (2) As you work be sure to keep the angles true (90 degrees—measure, don’t just estimate). (3) Square the top before you install the roof. If you decide to install a plywood floor, there are some very important things you should know. I installed a 5/8" plywood floor, which not only makes the interior look nicer but also adds strength and functionality. I drove the screws in from the top and filled the holes. (If I had it to do over again, though, I would turn the floor over and drive the screws from the bottom up.) When I finished, I used a flush-cut router bit to make the edge flush with the base. Now, I had some problems with the floor based on some things that the instructions don’t tell you. Look at step 6 on page 17 of the instructions. The two insets show how to cut the wood flooring edge, but where you see the wood is also where the door and jam bottoms go! After installing the floor I had an issue installing the door jams in step 14, but simply cutting the bottom of the jams solved the problem. Unfortunately, though, I didn’t realize the full impact of the problem until I started installing the doors, which is the last step. I was not about to disassemble two days of work to rebuild the floor, so I disassembled the doors and cut 5/8" off the bottom. Presto-chango it worked! All that to say, plan ahead if you’re going to install a floor! I did call the manufacturer’s help desk and asked what I did wrong. I was asked to call back when I do my next shed and get to step 6 (!). I wasn’t happy with this response—not very helpful. Overall, though, I am very pleased with the results of my work. I checked out a similar shed that costs much less and also pops together. But I decided to spend the extra cash and stick with the GS83 for my next shed. It’s sturdier, and the floor is much easier to install (except for the problems I mentioned above with interference with doors and jams).

The Not-So-Good and the Good
August 4, 2013
First, the not-so-good: It took my girlfriend and me ten hours to put together. (Maybe you could do it in eight if you’re Superman.) The instructions can be confusing, and you may find yourself backtracking a few times. You have to work hard and do some prying to get the roof holes to line up right. Second, the good: It’s inexpensive, but when you get it together it’s very sturdy. It’s plenty big and holds my lawn mower, weed eater, tiller, and other yard tools. I would definitely recommend this product to others, but you may want to pay someone else to put it together for you! :)

Good Quality

A Sturdy, Durable Product
June 19, 2013
My husband and I have been very pleased with our shed. Although it was a little difficult to assemble, it has proved its worth through the years. Weather and hard use have not phased it in the least. The color of the shed has not faded at all, and it has been very easy to keep clean with a garden hose. The building has remained water tight, and the sturdy floor has kept out the unwanted rodents common in our neighborhood. We have also been very happy with the size of the shed. It easily holds our lawn tractor, tiller, hoses, rakes, shovels, and lawn chairs. It even has room for shelves to store smaller items like flower pots and hand tools. We will definitely enjoy using this shed for many years in the future.

Meager Headroom but Great Overall Value
January 27, 2013
In total, setting up the shed was a two-day project. I poured a foundation one day and assembled the shed the next. My previous shed was plastic and lacking durability, so I am delighted with the value this shed provides. With plenty of space for storage, I now have the chance to arrange my tools methodically. The only shortcoming is that there is very little head clearance.

Instructions Are a Challenge to Interpret
December 4, 2012
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.

Exceeded My Expectations
November 12, 2012
We live in Arizona, and our homeowners’ associations can be quite picky regarding storage units/garden sheds. After a long, hard search, I was pleased that all my needs—including meeting HOA requirements as well as meeting my own outdoor storage needs—were met beyond my expectations with this model. Delivery was fast, construction was easy. We’ll definitely pass this information along to others in our subdivision. Thanks for the great experience!

Setup Needs Two People
September 25, 2012
Keep in mind that you will need another person’s help with this project. As we were finishing, we found that some of the holes in the shed’s rear wall were misaligned. As a solution, we drilled new holes in the rear wall.

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.

Lots of Pieces
April 12, 2012
Shed was delivered on time as described. However, you must have a flooring material ready, as there is none with the shed. We used 1" plywood. assembly took 2 people about 4-5 hours, which seemed pretty labor intensive. Materials and finish are decent.

Good at Keeping Things Tight and Dry
March 13, 2012
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.

Serves the Purpose
February 16, 2012
It took me about 12 hours to put this shed together. I spent four hours on it one day and eight the next. You’ll need two people to screw it all together. You have to be sure to keep it on a level surface so you can line up the holes correctly. You should be somewhat “handy” to assemble it. You may need an awl, and you’ll need to know the difference between a nut, a bolt, and a screw. I’m happy with this shed—it’s nice and does what I need it to do!

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

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

By Harry from san jose california on November 6, 2015
I would like this shed to fit under the rain gutter that is 68 inches from the ground. Is that possible?

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

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