We have lived in the house we are at currently for a long time. As a result, we have put a lot of work into our yard. This requires a lawn mower, leaf blower, trimmer, and anything else you can think of. We ran out of room in our garage, and needed a place to put our lawn tools. We quickly ran to the store and found this, so we bought it. Assembly was prompt, although it cause a little bit of tension. It was pretty easy to put our stuff inside of it, and it was pretty roomy too. I'd say at least 2 normal sized people could comfortably stand it this while it is closed. There is a place to put a lock, which is handy since there is SO MUCH that we keep in it. It even fits/blends into our yard quit nicely. The only thing I've noticed that is wrong with this is that over the years, it has gotten a little... well... old. Its starting to bend and stick open, but that doesn't distract from how helpful it is. We have had it for a little over 10 years, so that is understandable. I would have to say this is a very good short term storage device.
