Can anyone recommend a quality storage shed kit?
Looking for something around 9ftx16ft.
I don't want to build from scratch because I think it would take too long t
o make all the cuts and get all the parts. I wouldn't mind putting togethe
r a kit , but have read some horror stories on reviews of kits delivered wi
th significant damage, missing parts, badly warped wood, etc.
All advice appreciated.

I've got a resin shed and it's held together good except from one freak
microburst that disassembled it. I put it back together with some
sturdier fasteners at key points.
I also have one of the sheet metal variety in Arizona that's held up for
close to thirty years. If you get one of those, have a helper on hand
and pick a still day. They're rugged enough when they are assembled. I
put mine together on New Years day. My friend had a major hangover and
the wind picks up after sunrise in Arizona. Wasn't fun. A power
screwdriver would be good too.

Be careful how you build.
Where I live, if sheds have footings and a concrete floor, the square footage is calculated and the structure is taxed at the same rate as a house. OTOH, build a pressure-treated floating deck and then build a shed on top of that and you'll avoid
additional property taxes
I've moved both of my garden sheds 8 x 8 9 x 12 board & batten
all by myself - jack & roll easy as pie.
And hardly a mark in the lawn.
When I built them, I just copied what was on display at the local

Yeah, the problem is tho with sheds they arent very often
sited with the full wall height of space beside each wall.
Hardly anyone mixes concrete with a mixer
anymore, even for stuff like a driveway.
Yeah and ICF would work well in places with cold
winters and here with stinking hot summers. We
can get 10 days in a row over 100F and this
summer had 3 of those. Not much fun in a shed
that isnt well insulated on days like that,
