"Nice little store.only problem was that many of the sections came warped or looking as if they had been lying around a workshop floor for a while....instructions easy to read, had it built in under three hours....t breaks included."

Review 2 for Forest Overlap Maxi Pent Store 1.8 x 0.8 x 1.5m
"Bought this as it was one of the cheaper sheds that had suitable size. For a cheap shed it is quite good.
The assembly instructions are poor, just three sides of A4 paper with several big diagrams and they apply to three different sheds. They omit a lot of detail. All the pictures and words I read before purchase show the shed against a wall but assembly needs to be done away from a wall and then the assembled shed moved to be against the wall. For the assembly you need sufficient space all around the shed for hammering nails.
Construction of the floor walls and door seemed straightforward but something was distorted and the roof panel showed the tops of the walls were not square, by almost 2cm. Pushing the corners to try and remedy this means the doors do not fit evenly, even after removing all the screws holding walls to base. Having nailed the roof into place I realised that fitting the corner boards was not described and they should have been fitted earlier. I had to modify one corner to get them to fit.
The picture shows a thin board on the short side of the roof. The boards provided were warped, the centre of one board being almost 2cm away from a straight line between the ends. These boards are not described in the instructions. The roof timber is some sort of chipboard, about 8mm thick, with 35x35mm battens on its long sides. So could not see how to securely nail down the felt and fit these side boards.
Assembling the shed took me about eight hours, excluding the time to prepare the base.
Having completed the shed I am happy with it, but would have liked better instructions."

Review 3 for Forest Overlap Maxi Pent Store 1.8 x 0.8 x 1.5m
"I wish that I had paid more attention to the other reviews before purchasing this shed.
As another review stated, many of the pieces arrived warped. After now looking at reviews for other sheds on the Screwfix website, many customers complain about warped pieces provided. My advice would be to purchase your shed from somewhere else, Screwfix seems to have poor quality control.
The shed took over seven hours to construct due to poor instructions and poor quality wood provided. If it didn't take so long to construct, I'd take it down and return it. One of the doors is so warped that it is extremely hard to close it and lock the shed.
The picture on the website looks good but the shed in my garden looks cheap and many of the pieces do not sit flush against each other.
Would strongly recommend you do not purchase this shed."
