|My Phoenix Tuff Shed
|The following information will illustrate the condition of my Tall Barn Tuff Shed upon 'Completion'
|I provided a concrete slab 12' wide for the 10' wide shed.
This leaves at least 24 inches of workspace on all sides of
the shed as reqeuested in the contract.
When the workers arrived they said they needed 36" of
workspace unless I told them they would not be held
responsible for broken glass. Of course I didn't want them
to break my windows, so now one side of the shed sits on a
few stacks of bricks instead of the slab I provided.
|I was told that this is a 6 hour job. 10 days later, my shed
was still not completed.
Each Corner of the Tuff Shed is cut poorly and is missing
|Each hinge is missing 3 srews. This resulted in bent hinges
and doors that wouldn't close.
I had to remove and re-hang the doors myself.
I made sure to put in all 8 screws for each hinge.
I don't know what the story is with all those nails around the
|When they tried to install the doors they realized the
doorway was too small. When they came back a couple days
later they brought a reciprocating saw and went to work.
The doorway was too short and it wasn't wide enough. The
little 6 inch cracked piece of wood you see used to be a full
length stud. When they cut the new doorway they made it
too big by 3 inches. Whoops! Then they put a 2x4 on the left
side as you can see to fill in part of the gap. It helps if you
have studs directly under the top of the doorway to support
everything above the doorway.
|For some reason they left the right side of the doorway
without a stud to support the 2x6 header. I put one in
|I also paid extra for a 7' x 10' loft, but it's only 7' x 9'. The
plywood you see should extend all the way to the frame
on the right side.
Watch your step!
|The first time they hung the
doors they put the hinges on the
wrong side. I guess when they
removed the hinges and put
them on the other side it took
some paint off.
|This is the part where there is
supposed to be some door
handles and a latch so you can
close it and lock it up.
They obviously didn't install them
or leave them for me to install. I
purchased what I needed at Ace
Hardware and finished it up
If you have any questions or want

|This Tuff Shed was scheduled to be installed (completely) on July 16th 2007 in Tempe AZ. No one showed up until 2pm on July 18th. 10 Days later
I told them I had enough. I told them not to come back, that I would finish it myself. I was told by J.R. that I did not owe them the other half of the
bill and he apologized for the service I received.
|Update: An email was sent to the poster of these pictures. When asked what the outcome was he stated
Tuff Shed now wanted the full purchase price. When he told them what J.R had said he was told that he
could not prove it so PAY UP.
