These sturdy utility building kits are the ideal solution for both residential homeowners as well as business owners who require storage space for vehicles or equipment.
Easy to build and made of a galvanized steel construction that, unlike typical wooden sheds, will not fade, rot, or mildew; you can rest assured that your Duramax Utility Building will provide lasting protection for many years to come. Bird Boyz Builders offers Duramax Utility Building Kits at great prices plus FREE SHIPPING to locations in the continental USA.
One thing to keep in mind when planning where to put your shed is that the 12-by-10 size also includes the edge of the roof around the shed, so although it will fit in a 12-by-10 area you won't get that amount of storage space (the base will be smaller because of this). The pieces of the shed feel weak overall and can be damaged with a relatively light impact. After more than 15 years of use (I got it in January of 1995) I would say that I'd get it again if I had it to do over. While the shed did its job exactly as we needed it to (and is very rugged after being hooked on a concrete pad), I would only rate it mediocre because of some problems we had during assembly. If you are looking for an ultra-sturdy shed that will withstand banging things into the walls, setting things against the walls, this shed probably isn't for you.
Large, sturdy, and attractive looking, the Duramax Utility Building Kit is one of the most popular metal utility buildings available on the market today, and Bird Boyz Builders is proud to be able to offer Duramax products at affordable, competitive prices. Additional construction features such as sliding doors, access entry ramps, and reinforced metal inserted columns for adding shelving are just some of the other items that set Duramax Utility Building Kits apart from others. Fortunately, this Arrow Concrete Anchor Kit makes it easy to provide your storage building with the structural reinforcement it needs. Check to make sure that holes are drilled correctly and have a cordless drill ready to fix any that are not. Reading through the manual several times would definitely be recommended before you start construction.
The directions can be kind of hard to understand as they aren't very specific, and the illustrations need to be better.
I wasted some time looking for parts that the manual said that I needed, but it turned out that the manual is for this style of shed but different sizes, so that could have been clearer. It should really have something better that shows you how to do it instead of just telling you what to do with unclear pictures.
It was extremely windy (85mph) about a week after I bought it, and it was so damaged it had to be taken down. It has stayed strong through many storms (where it has served as a passing place to sleep), and it was a great experience putting it together. The only problem I had was some rust on the roof panels, but I already plan on buying new ones and putting them on the body of the old shed. Ten hours was all we needed with a couple people working on it, but we found it easier with two cordless drills.
The parts could be thicker as the metal feels very flimsy, and it might have been easier building a wood shed.


Also, check to make sure that you have all the parts and screws for the project beforehand as I didn't have some of the nuts, bolts, etc. Definitely have two people working on it (although one person can do it if they have handyman skills) as things will be much easier with an extra set of hands. I would keep several weekends free to make sure you have time to build it and it helps if you are handy with a simple tools and power tools.
Some of the pictures seemed to contradict each other, so the instructions definitely need some improvement. This shed has lasted me a long time and the only reason that it needed to be replaced was because a small tornado pushed a seventy five foot tree down on top of it. I built it without any help (I would recommend getting help) and it took four days to do so. My suggestion would be to get a professional to put it together (even though I put it together myself). The rust happened 16 years after I bought it so I just missed the 15 year rust-through protection warranty that came with the building. I came with everything we needed, but the door to the shed was damaged while being shipped so we had to get a new one (they sent it no problem in four days or so).
Three people would probably be best if your looking to get things done fast, but you could probably do it with two. My neighbor insisted I could have built a much bigger building for the same price using wood, but I don't know.
Fortunately, this Arrow Sheds Auger Anchor Kit makes this crucial installation step extremely easy. The screw holes may not line up perfectly and some parts seem a little flimsy, but I definitely think this shed is a great deal and works well. Without the sealer that it comes with the building would definitely not be weather-proof, but the sealer does its job.
Don't do this alone (I recommend three people) or else you will find it impossible to build it.
The build was okay when you make sure to follow the manual and don't try to do things too quickly, although I would probably put out the money for another type of building. It was exactly what I was looking for to store all my garden tools and to house my fishing gear (my Fisherman's Nook is my nickname for it). The only negative things were that the instructions were for any sized shed of this model and so were somewhat unclear with certain parts of the door assembly. The biggest problem we had with the shed assembly was with the roof trusses (we think they packed trusses for the wrong model in the shipment we received). There is no hassle, everything comes packaged together, just follow the instructions and you're done. When you actually start assembling the shed keep in mind that the panels are thin so windy weather is something you should try to avoid when you pick a day for assembly.


Check the parts beforehand to make sure you have all the little pieces, but a local store should have it if you run out.
Not only that, but after all gear and tools there was still plenty of room for items from the house.
Also, we eventually had to put the damaged door out on the road to be picked up even though customer service said two times that they would get a truck out as quickly as possible.
After we checked to make sure all the siding was lining up exactly along the side of the building and made sure that we hadn't incorrectly laid out the railing on the floor, we noticed that there was about 1 ? inches too much of material on the end.
I built a couple of other metal storage sheds, so by the time I was ready to build this one, I knew what to do and it went really quick. If you have free shipping make sure you talk with the store you order it from (they might not have it down).
The order for a new unit came straight to my house within days of me placing the order at Home Depot. Thankfully we had a band saw to cut the trusses down to length quickly and easily, but had we not had them at work it probably would have been a bigger deal. Using some redneck engineering, I was able to assemble it myself, even when installing the truss. I didn't even expect this to be such an excellent investment, so I just got the most inexpensive building I could find to store my stuff in.
We also ended up having to re-drill some of the holes that the panels were suppose to mount too. Other than that the manual was a little hard to understand (sometimes we needed to go back and change something we had put in the wrong place), but it wasn't usually anything serious and with some proper formatting and better illustrations it would be much easier to read.
I have it anchored to a concrete slab and use it for storing my lawn tractor, snow blower and garden tools. I am putting the shed on the same base as the last building (concrete slab), and expect this one to last just as long.
I can definitely say that this is one of the happiest purchases I have made in a long time and would recommend this building to others.
I expected the vinyl-coated steel to feel much heavier and durable than other steel sheds, but it seemed about the same.
