I ended up holding off this one. outside of my concerns of construction quality, it just did not meet our storage needs.
as far as mechanically inclined. I am very mechanically inclined. I would classify myself as a strong DIYer and occasional fabricator. if it was not for that, then I would not have considered buying one of these. I am deffinitely not one of those guys that goes on the neighborhood page asking for a vendor recommendation to come out and fix a spot of drywall or unclog an ac drain.
There are very few repair tasks that I consider outside of my skill set. there are certain ones that I know not to take on. Given that, I also only have so much time available as well so I am ok with an occasional large project but I dont want to spend every weekend re-engineering something that was never meant to live as long as it has.
