Wow, I’m impressed - very well designed and the instructions were great (a major improvement based on previous reviews). Assembled the complete shed by myself in a weekend. I’d built a pier & beam foundation in advance â€" two 8’x8’ sections, bolted together because I couldn’t haul 16’ lumber. Reasonably level, but not perfect. The pallet arrived Friday afternoon â€" the big 8x15 unit with 2 sets of doors. I hauled the 2 smaller boxes into the backyard as-is. I split up the 2 larger boxes, unpacking half the contents into the box top and hauling the half-full tops and bottoms separately. Spent a couple of hours Friday evening assembling the roof trusses and watching the how-to videos (They're very clear, helpful, and worth your time !). Sat AM I assembled the doors, one of the few areas where more detailed info would’ve helped. I made a few mistakes that took some time to undo and correct. (Tip â€"a little lithium grease helps slide those long metal edges over the door panels.) Once the floor was down the wind kicked up, knocking down walls fast as I got ‘em up until I used a pair of ladders (one inside, one outside) to hold ‘em in place. Then install those 1/4 circle shelves to brace the corners and the long shelf to brace the sides (a bit premature per the instruction sequence, but it worked for me). The ‘dueling ladders’ came in handy for the roof too - one inside and one outside. By end of day Saturday I had all the walls up, with the end doors installed, and roof panels on both ends. Sunday I installed the 2nd set of doors and the center roof sections with the dormer. Everything fit pretty well, although I did make liberal use of the rubber mallet. The doors hang straight and close easily. One set has a 1/2 inch vertical offset, but not enough to cause any problems and I didn’t want to risk other issues by shimming the floor. Let it sit for a week, then this past weekend I built a redwood step for the end doorway, and a wide ramp for the long side. Got some new shelving units inside waiting for assembly, and I’ll add some battery or solar lights as well as a ‘semi-permanent’ AC extension cord hookup. Now I’ve got plenty of room for the toys, tools, and gardening supplies too. Definitely a worthwhile investment!

I purchased this shed a few years ago. Before writing a review I wanted to see how well it held up. I'm sorry to say...not so well. I think the mid-entry doors are the weakest link. If the wind catches the door on you it'll bend and then will be a struggle to close. But even before that happened the roof over the doors began to sag and that made closing the doors extremely difficult. Now to close the doors I have to push up on the roof. If my wife wants to close the doors she simply cannot. Yes, there are a lot of screws and the way the sides lock to the floor seems lacking, but it does stay together and is relatively water resistant. If you do use a power tool to drive the screws set the clutch at the lowest setting. The metal bars that solidify the door opening lasted a year. I've had to modify and reinforce that area. The screws holding the metal bars simply don't have enough holding power. This wasn't well thought out at all. Be sure to use exterior paint on the floor before assembling the shed floor on it. After a couple of years of sun and freezing cold the screws in the floor lose their grip and the floor buckles. Now moisture can get in. Even if you use all treated lumber a coat of paint on the top surface can't hurt. My biggest complaint is the doors, both the design and the function. This is the weak point in this shed and would keep me from recommending it, let alone purchasing it again. Once you get past the doors and the compromised floor the remainder of the shed seems to hold up pretty well. It's withstood 80mph winds. It's just a royal pain every time you want in or out to struggle with the doors. Eventually I'll add some kind of header to keep the roof from sagging at that point. They'll still be difficult to open and close, but at least possible without pushing up on the roof.

Too many screws and pieces!

By Don C

from Creston, BC, Canada

Comments about Lifetime 15 x 8 ft. Outdoor Garden Shed:

I am a big fan of almost every LIFETIME product I own, just not this one! I'm a retired mechanic and it took 2 of us 14 hours to assemble. Instruction pictures are vague. Over 400 screws that must be installed by hand and many strip out far too easily even for plastic. 6 skylights that need 6 screws each and don't let much light in. Many of the parts could have been made to interlock without any screws. Worst of all it's not secure. The windows can be pushed in with very little force and should not have been made to open. In this day of computer aided design I think this was done with an abacus!

Good Shed

By Devin

from Bluffdale, UT, United States

Comments about Lifetime 15 x 8 ft. Outdoor Garden Shed:

I really like a lot about the shed. It is sturdy and attractive. I had the company install it so I don't know about assembly. I had a concrete pad poured because I heard that some people had trouble with the doors closing if things weren't perfectly square. Even though I had them assemble it and put it on concrete, after a few months the doors don't latch closed very well. I have to keep the lock on to keep the doors together and closed. Otherwise I don't have any complaints. I have had the shed for about a year.

GREAT SHED!

By Lunker

from Kissimmee, FL

Comments about Lifetime 15 x 8 ft. Outdoor Garden Shed:

I purchased this and installed it two years ago now. I do not remember the manual to be all that great but I am pretty handy and got this built without too much problem. On thing you need to do is install this on a level base otherwise the roof and trusses will not fit well and the doors will bind or not close well. Remember this, I was 58 when I did this and I did it all ALONE with no help. I used many spring loaded hand clamps to be my second hand to hold parts in place while I worked on other parts. Follow the instructions and do not try to do things out of order. I dug out the sod, laid down substrate, packed that firm, installed over fifty, 24 by 24", concrete pavers, leveled everything, then installed the shed on top. I also installed heavy duty wind screws into the grounds on the four corners so I can install heavy duty cross straps over the roof to secure the shed if we get high winds or a hurricane. I even ran electric under the shed and up through a small hole I made in the floor to have outlets and lights inside the shed. I am in Central Florida so I have a large fan inside with a small cube refrigerator for cool beverages when mowing the lawn or other chores. The walls will only support so much weight so I built a free standing heavy wooden work bench for projects and I built into that supports for my trimmer and accessories as well as backpack blower and sprayers. I am very happy with the shed and it still looks new. I would buy this shed again.

Maintenance free.

By Roger the electrician

from Eastern Canada

Comments about Lifetime 15 x 8 ft. Outdoor Garden Shed:

Assembled on a concrete slab,summer of 2014. It has never leaked. This is the first winter of use and I am having difficulty with closing the double door due to the top frame having dropped slightly. Probably due to about 2" of snow and ice. I will have to construct an extra metal reinforcement truss for above the door to resolve this problem. The plastic roof panels are also slightly rounded downwards between the trusses. Assembly was a bit time consuming,but that should be expected. I strongly recommend 2 people to assemble.On the inside I have added fluorescent lights and a receptacle and outside I also have a receptacle and a small yard floodlight over the door. This is quite an attractive looking medium size storage shed.

Assembled my shed in about 20 hours, by myself, using clamps and braces for a second pair of hands. Two main parts were damaged at the factory, called Lifetime and they sent replacement parts.

I was really looking forward getting it but :-(

By Jack

from Fresno, CA, United States

Comments about Lifetime 15 x 8 ft. Outdoor Garden Shed:

  After about 12 hours it is up. All I have to say cheep and poorly designed. I am a car mechanic, I take a transmission rebuilt any time over this job. As for the quality it's way too expansive for the quality. I do not recommend this product. You can not use power tool because some screws hard too hard to put in some are so easy to over torque so again because of the quality you must put all 400 +++ screws by had  FYI I got the 15x8. After spending all this time putting it together I don't want to take it apart to return it. If it was easy job and I had the box, I would but I'm stuck with it.    So you do what you like ! This is as real as it gets I don't know about other brand but I am very disappointed getting this shed.

Nice Shed but very poor instructions

By BBrown

from Ogden, Quebec, Canada

Comments about Lifetime 15 x 8 ft. Outdoor Garden Shed:

I just bought this shed and took my wife and I, 2 weekends to assemble. I also built a plywood base very level. The instruction booklet is the worst ,needs to be improved. I like the shed, very spacious, but leaks over door hinge, other reviewers have called customer support and they send them a fix. I will do this. Doors also don't close with the overlap together.

Best Money Ever Spent

By Happy in New Hampshire

from No name, New Hampshire

Comments about Lifetime 15 x 8 ft. Outdoor Garden Shed:

This is some of the best money we have ever spent. We live in Northern New England, and needed more storage space, but wanted it to look attractive in our yard and match our home. After reading all the reviews I could find, we ordered this model. One review I had read (too late to pay attention to) did recommend not placing it on patio stone or brick foundation. That is the one thing I have to agree with. We had already put in our foundation so did it anyway but wished we hadn't as it wasn't level enough for the floor, which is very flexible. Our solution was to build a one-inch high wooden platform INSIDE to give the stability and level floor we needed. We find it doesn't get too cold in winter and nothing has ever melted inside on the hottest days of summer. The peak venting works great. Just to be safe, we did go around the inside of the floor connection and around the windows (since we weren't going to open them anyway) with silicone, and after two winters so far, there has never been a leak of any kind. It works great and with the shelving provides LOTS of storage space. We repeatedly congratulate ourselves for buying this shed as nothing could work better in every way to provide what we needed. The construction is simple and solid, although it does take a little time to put together. I would recommend two people working together. Well worth any effort, though!
