Solid Build is one of the most popular builders of beautifully designed wooden sheds in all of Europe. These kits are now available in the United States, and we're proud to be among the first to offer them.
The Optima 8X8 Wooden Shed is a prime example of the craftsmanship the carpenters at Solid Build display. It's made of all natural Norway Spruce solid wood for enhanced durability. The kit is designed to be easy to assemble and can be put together in a weekend depending on how much help you have.
The wood comes unpainted, though many customers prefer this natural look actually and just put on a coat of sealant. For the Optima, the floors, foundation, and roof shingles are not included. This has been done purposely to make the shed more affordable, and all plywood or natural wood boards of your choosing are available at your local home improvement center.
The shed is usually shipped within a few business days after ordering, but please check with us to find the latest availability and delivery schedule. The Optima can become an outdoor getaway, home office, art studio, workshop, playhouse, or simply a beautiful storage shed for all of your garden equipment or extra belongings. It's a welcome addition to your home that your family will enjoy for years to come.

Solid Build Inc. is based in Willowbrook, IL. Therefore the shipping time to certain western and eastern states is a bit longer than to the midwestern part of the United States.
This structure will ship via LTL freight directly from the warehouse in Illinois. We will email you tracking information as soon as it is available. When your order arrives at the shipping terminal closest to your home, the dispatcher there will call you to set up the delivery appointment, usually for the next day or whenever is convenient for you.
Liftgate delivery is not available for this particular structure as the packaging is too big. This means that the pallet will need to be opened on the back of the truck for removal by hand, piece by piece. This process takes a bit longer than if the liftgate were available, but it is not too time-consuming or difficult.
Two people are required to be present by the shipper to receive delivery in order to expedite the offloading process. No single piece is particularly heavy, but some pieces are bulky or unwieldy and require two people to move. The entire process should take around 30-45 minutes or less to manually offload your order from the delivery truck.
