Went through a factory that builds those "sheds". They are so efficient it only takes them few minutes to fit materials in jig and nail walls together. Materials cut in another part of factory and marked as to what and where they go. Delivered to jig area on cart.
By the time I was guided through the place they had built a complete shed and had it on carts to be taken to job site for erection. Oh forgot, it was also painted. Trim was painted and on cart also.
Doubt if it cost $100. labor to get it that far. Told it took 4 hours to finish on site. They did not say how many men were needed to do it.
Point is $6000? Somebody makes some darn nice profit on this one.
I just did a quick calculation on my home building software and that is under 800 dollars in materials,plus a 200 dollar door and window........I will put together as many of these as you want for almost 5000 dollars profit......3 day project at best ,thats 1500 labor for 2 guys at premium labor wages.....must have paid 3000 for shipping ?
Actually I bet shipping is not even included in that number or taxes......probably closer to 7000 when it`s all added up........what a rip off.
Where do these people get money to waste like that....I guess they want to keep thier friends up north in the money and let Americans go jobless........A traitor is what I would consider anyone who bought one of these in the tuff times people are having finding work here in America and feeding thier kids....to buy this thing is very unAmerican.
Sad sad sad stuff right there....what happened to pride of where one lives and your fellow man and this article promoting buying a over priced product from another country when people are trying to feed thier family and not go homeless.Sad times we are in,very sad.
This does not appear to be much of a deal to me.
I just put up a 12 x 16 home office for $3500.00
Completely finished, power all the things that were bragged about in he article.
Think it's a great idea, and wouldn't think of having any builder from this forum build it...those that are full of negativity and bad-mouthing.
We had a cottage put in our backyard, $26k. It's 120 square feet, with siding, heat, a/c, sun roof, porch and stairs, 2 paned armstrong windows and door with wood flooring, and it's beautiful.
So while you all are bad-mouthing, making jokes and comparing size, I'll be laughing when I'm able to sell my home for what I want, with the extra room out back.
You can get a tuff shed, the same size, for $2,200...and if you wanna spend that much you can get a 12x24 tuff shed. With the exception of the glass door i dont see much difference.
I especially liked Slide #5: "Keep it affordable"
Only $6000, suckers.
