10 x 14 Value Shed with flooring

The kit is excellent value for what you pay. My one recommendation is that if you are in a humid or salty climate to upgrade certain components to PT

Great project

Little cottage co. provided all the material and instructions to make this build smooth. I enjoyed the project and now use my 10x20 as a home office. AC unit installed (made an additional window) and insulation coming soon!

Pros and Cons

Pros: * design of the shed was sturdy * wood was good quality - have seen reports of split or severely deformed lumber being provided but I did not have that problem at all * mostly complete - did not have any major missing pieces except for a 2x4 * some nice quality-of-life features like stamps on the runners showing the locations of joists. * accurate pre-made cuts * overall, for me, a fun learning experience doing a larger-scale construction project Cons: * Surprisingly expensive by the time you buy the base (I used a concrete pad), paint, roofing materials, and other non-included pieces. If you are doing this to save money, reconsider. * One major piece of siding was cut mirrored, so I had to run to Home Depot to buy a replacement which I couldn't fit in my car * They recommend you buy lots of extras of the bring-your-own materials so I wasted some money. * If you are not a professional roofer: it will be a miserable boring hard hot experience, and also, it will look bad when you finish * Hardware provided was a little off - I have pounds of the wall nails left (did I not use enough :| ) and ran out of roofing nails. Overall, the kit was a nice size and looks good enough. Anything that doesn't look good is due to my inaccuracy when building. Shipping wasn't too inconvenient and delivery was fairly fast after arrival.

SAL's Establishment 2024

My friend and I were looking for shed that would double as a work and relaxation space. We looked at all the big box stores and wasn't pleased. I did some research and found Little Cottage. We placed our order, and they were more than accommodating with our unusual request. Our order was delivered and it's being custom fitted to our expectations. Very pleased with the product.

Good shed with easy to follow instructions!

Overall- this is a great shed for the price with easy to follow instructions. My husband and I were able to put it together by ourselves (moderate handy level). It took us about a week and a half, but we were only able to work for a few hours at a time. The instructions were fairly easy to follow- but our shed was larger than the one in the instructions so a few details were missing for our specific shed. The only thing we weren’t happy with was some of our roof pieces were very warped. This left us with a gap in our roof so we ended up paying for extra materials to fix this issue. We realize we purchased the value shed- so I would hope this wouldn’t be an issue with their higher quality kits. We chalked it up to “you get what you pay for”- but it was still disappointing to have low quality pieces. Overall- it’s a good shed and I would recommend it if you are looking in this price point.

Wry easy to build

The only negative i can say is the instructions of the side panels and frame on mine could have been a little clearer. The markings on the wood were exact. I still double measured to verify. The nails that are shipped with this are junk though. Still, for the money this is a great shed. Ive done all I can do by myself and it took only about 9 total hours. I should have the rest done In 3 more. Use a nail gun. It makes the job so much faster.

Shocking quality of the floor joists

I unpacked the value workshop shed today and was shocked by the poor quality of the floor joists. Eleven of the twelve 93" lengths were either moldy, rotten, split and/or (in most cases) not the full width or depth due to the corners being missing on account of the board being cut from the edge of the tree. I have photographs I can provide. I would appreciate a quick reply because there is no way I can use the joists supplied.

Little Cottage Co logo

Hi Alan, we are sorry to hear about the poor quality of the floor joists in your value workshop shed. This is certainly not the level of quality we strive for and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We would like to make this right for you as soon as possible. Please contact our customer service team at support@cottagekits.com or 330-893-4212 and provide us with the photographs you mentioned. We will be happy to reimburse you for the damaged pieces and provide you with replacement joists. We look forward to resolving this for you and hope to regain your trust in our products.

Nice shed with a few caveats.

I found this shed to be well designed and engineered. All the parts fit. The instructions are excellent. Yes, there were a few boards that were either warped, or bowed, or twisted, or knotty, but in the main, the lumber was sound. I did have to buy additional lumber, but I knew that I would for two reasons: first, the bottom and top plates were not 12’ pieces (an 8’ and a 4’ due to packaging constraints) and second, Little Cottage designed the structure on 24” centers. I vastly prefer 16”. And finally, I would make a suggestion. I purchased a third window and I wish that I had thought to request no cutouts for the windows. Because I am moving the door to the left side neither window cutout works; thus I am forced to buy additional pieces of smartside. Otherwise, I have no complaints and would recommend the product.
