The answer of the guy from Dayton states what should ideally be done (prepared concrete or wood foundation), but yes, it can be placed without concrete or wood foundation. I have built two of these sheds on the sandy soil in back of our house. It is ESSENTIAL that any sand or gravel be very very level. It affects how the walls connect to the floor, other wall panels when you are assembling. My first building was in 2008 and there is no problem with it being directly on sand. I keep a heavy hydraulic wood splitter and lawn tractor in it. Yes, there are small depressions in the plastic floor where the wheels are, but they are very shallow and not noticeable unless you really are looking for them. No cracks or seam problems in the flooring anywhere, and that is since 2008. This is a really nice looking, solid shed. Note the picture of my second shed foundation prep: the boards you see on the ground were only for marking the location. THey were removed when laying the floor and are not any part of the shed.

Yes, the floor is included. The most important part of the foundation is that it is flat and level. If it isn't the doors won't hang or function properly.

The left door locks with top and bottom bolts that slide up into the frame and down into the floor. The right door has a metal tab that meets a metal tab on the left door when both are closed. Place a padlock shank through holes in the two taps to secure the right door.

Answer: 
The doors come with a latch fixture through which you can place a standard combination or key lock, such as a masterlock. However, the windows and window catches are flimsy enough that if a thief really wanted something inside the lock probably would not be an obstacle.

I have a stack of lumber, lawn tractor, log splitter in mine, so it has never left the ground. However, last year I added "screw in" type anchors outside the shed and connected them with cable through the plastic wall to the metal frame, just to be sure. My shed is set on a sand base, so I do not know what you might want to do to anchor it to a concrete base. Maybe drill though the floor into the concrete using something like Tapcon masonry screws . I'm sure you won't need me to figure out how to do it if you think it is necessary. Read Less

No, it does not need to be. It is an option, and there are instructions included (in the very end of the manual, which if you don't read through ahead of time is too late). No hardware is included in the kit in order to fasten it down. My guess is the weight is sufficient to keep it in place against all but extreme wind loads.

Hi Terry,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
There is usually no need to fasten this shed down to it's foundation. The solid floor and roof design will withstand high winds, and when you load the building with lawn equipment and tools, the weight increases significantly.

Securing the building can be done with anchors and bolts through the floor, but will require making holes through the floor, which would void your warranty.

I have two of these sheds, both built on a sand base. The plastic floor MUST be in place to assemble the shed. The walls attach directly to the floor by inserting nubs on the bottom of the wall sections into keyhole-type slots in the floor. After insertion, slide the wall sections over an inch or two to lock it to the floor. I store a lawn tractor, stacks of 2X6s, a work bench, gasoline log splitter, other heavy items in the shed. The floor holds up very well with only sand underneath it. I guess concrete would be even better. The log splitter has made small depressions where the wheels are over the years, but only barely noticeable, maybe 1/8 inch deep. If you do concrete, (or ANY type of base) make absolutely sure it is perfectly flat and level to avoid assembly problems. The concrete should have no taper or slope (that you might have thought good for water run-off) that occurs from corner to corner where the walls will be. You could probably put some taper from the middle to near the outside edges, but the actual location where the walls come down should be absolutely flat and level such that if you had a 13 foot straight edge, It would lay perfectly flat and level along the lines where t he walls will be.

11 ft. x 13.5 ft. Outdoor Storage Building is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I did a lot of reading before deciding to purchase this shed online. I ended up getting it on sa... I did a lot of reading before deciding to purchase this shed online. I ended up getting it on sale for $1605 shipped from Wayfair (used 10% coupon when the price dropped to $1783 - no tax). I wanted a Vinyl shed that would not need to be built on skids because I didn't want to have to re-shingle or re-paint it in the future and I didn't want any animals living under the shed. As you can see from the pictures I ended up using pea gravel inside a box made from railroad ties. I leveled the pea gravel the best that I could using a laser level and spinning it around little by little to check the height from the middle. On to the shed... I spent about 90 minutes reading the manual before the shed arrived. I ended up downloading an older version of the shed instructions that I found helpful to use with the updated instructions that came in the box. A couple of the diagrams from the older directions were useful although most of the pictures from the new (updated) directions were better to use. There were a few times that were confusing about which way the parts were supposed to go - an example would be the door frame pieces could use a better explanation on the orientation in the picture. One of my door frames was "punched" an inch too high from the factory but lifetime sent me a new piece via express delivery from Fedex. Lifetime tech support was great each of the 3 times that I called. It's not that I was having trouble but I wanted to make sure I could put the windows and skylights on the same side and not affect the integrity of the structure. I'm in the northern hemisphere and the doors face 120 degrees southeast so the sun is only on one side of the shed and I wanted to maximize the light. I spent about 10 hours putting the trusses together along with the door hardware and lock mechanism and skylights. I did as much as I could by myself - the floor was challenging by myself but if I used concrete I think it would have been easier. Once the floor was level and down, and the doors and trusses were pre-assembled by me in advance it took 4 people 6 hours from start to finish including stopping for breakfast and lunch. It was myself and my friend and we had a couple of tall neighborhood kids there to help hold the walls while we screwed the screws as well as get up on the ladders to help hold the roof panels in place as we screwed from the inside. I don't care how many reviews you read on here or Amazon/Lowes website, there is no way that someone put this together completely by themselves unless they're god. One piece of advice that I read on Amazon and was helpful would be to put the roof caps on immediately after you put both sides of the roof on while there is an opening next to it so you can reach easier. If I was able to make improvements to the shed I would think about the clips that hold the windows in place - they are terrible. I called Lifetime and they sent me replacements to try since the ones I have don't "spin" freely at all. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a shed that seems like it will last. My father laughed at me when I told him I was buying this - he said my shed was going to be built out of the same material that my 4 year old's play house was made from but he retracted his statement at the end; he was impressed with the final product. I didn't screw it down because it is heavy enough not to go anywhere. Also a few reviews talked about ABT delivering the shed. I had a very positive experience with them and scheduled the day/time I needed and the driver had the proper pallet jack to bring the pallet down my driveway and place it in my garage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good I bought this at the beginning of the summer to store my lawn mower and yard tools. My son & I put it together fairly easily. The last roof sections didn't line up perfectly, but seem to be ok. We'll see how it goes after our first snow. Be sure to read the instructions before you tackle this project. It will really help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Very pleased with the shed. Very spacious. Comes in four very large boxes, and the directions are in BOX 4 - we printed the entire 100 page assembly manual because I was afraid to start unpacking stuff without the parts list. Finally found the directions in the last box. More importantly - when they say "must be built on a level surface" - they mean it! We anchored ours to a 4" deep concrete slab we had poured just for this purpose, and it turned out our concrete guy had allowed it the slab to slope about 1" over the 14' length. You wouldn't think that would make much difference, but it was enough to make assembling it a real pain, as the wall panels didn't line up correctly. We managed, but had we not had to fight the sloping slab, we would've had the entire thing assembled much faster. As it was, it took my husband and me (mostly my husband, I admit) about 3 hours to assemble the floor and the walls, and my husband and his dad and sister finished the trusses and the roof in about another 4 hours. It will seem very flimsy right up until you get the roof put on, but once it's done, it's quite strong. Windows and skylights let in plenty of light. Just so you know, the windows do crank open for ventilation, but there are no screens. Definitely cheaper than a wooden shed of comparable size, and much stronger than a metal one - branches, baseballs, and everything else just bounce right off it. Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Shed I've been looking for a shed for long time. Metal was instantly out of the picture, due to potential rust issues and maintenance upkeep. If I was going to have or make a shed, I was going to do it right. The decision came down to a plastic/vinyl shed or a wood shed. A plastic or vinyl shed would likely be slightly more expensive, but it would stand up against the elements and be constructed relatively easily. With a wood shed, I could either buy a kit, or get or make a plan and come up with the parts myself. Wood shed kits often come with cheap wood that you will want to upgrade anyways (i.e. warped wood or 1x2s where a 2x4 would work better). After that you would still have to complete the roof, floor and paint. If you pulled the materials together yourself, it would take some time, but it would be done right. After much deliberation, I decided to go with this vinyl shed due to is durability and ease of assembly. I picked this one from Lifetime in particular because after looking at a bunch of sheds, they seemed to be the most durable and they had a 10 year warranty. I also needed it to be completed fast and this was the best option. From all the reviews, I have read, this one had the best. After opening the 4 large boxes (about 250lbs each), I could tell I made the right decision. The walls are thicker and heavier than most other sheds I had seen. I was able to finish the assembly in about 8 hours with 1 other person. A few parts were missing or the wrong size, but one call to Lifetime and that was settled. The roof was the hardest part to get on, but it was definitely worth the trouble. After a few rainstorms, there were no leaks inside the shed. The windows open and close well into their set notches. I keep them open slightly for venting purposes, but this shed already comes with a few built in vents so that's great. The skylights allow the right amount of light in during the day and also have not leaked. The doors are a little tough to adjust perfectly, but once you do, you'll have perfect assembly. In the end, I am very happy with my choice in this shed. I may have spent a little more money now, but will end up saving in the future. I have a family and work full time, so this was definitely the most economical and efficient use of my time. I can still construct shelves inside the shed for the custom aspect of wood, but won't have to worry about any maintenance or the cost that goes with it. Obviously everyone will have their own opinion, but for me, this was the perfect shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT Purchased shed last year, and was put up last fall. It can't be stressed enough of making your deck or pad level. As you go up the mistakes of not being level are magnified at the top! I put in a concrete pad, making it 1" longer and wider than the footprint. I put a rounded edge on the pad. Any rain runs down the side off into the gravel I have around the pad. The shed is water tight! I did not do any caulking. I did secure the shed frame down with concrete screws. I will blow down when my house blows down.The finished product is very strong and pleasing to the eye. It is money well spent as long as your going to put the time in leveling out your foundation.
