Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roc Very good purchase.
This was all around a great experience. I purchased the 15'/8' shed and added two 30" ext. for a 20'8' total shed. The shed with the added ext. was very easy to construct / put together. I completed the task in two days by myself. As seen in the photo I was pleased that the ext's could be placed on one side or one on each side of the doors. I was also pleased that the window panels could be located at the ends if necessary. Very well constructed. The key as all have stated is a level platform or surface.

As described by others the instructions were difficult to decipher. Then after an entire days work the next weekend we had a big snow storm and the wind blew the shed down. We felt like the little pig who had built his house of straw! It was suggested that it be bolted to the concrete pad but others had said they had no problem so we thought it would be okay for a few days until we could get back to it. Not the case. So now we have $1700 worth of plastic sitting on our patio waiting to be thrown out.! Not to mention broken shelving that was inside when it went down. We are now looking for something that will really last a lifeftime.

Nice quality shed.
I would have given 5 stars overall if it weren’t for the instructions and packaging of the hardware aspects of it. Really it is a correlation issue between the two. I’ve spent many years in manufacturing and created assembly methods for several of those years. There were errors and too many opportunities for interpretation. I was tempted to redline as I went but was already under the gun to get the work done. LifeTime, if you want to give me a free shed or give me some cash back on the one I bought, I will identify the errors and provide you with solutions to make them more user friendly! I am partially kidding. But, seriously, if you read the reviews, everyone complains about the hardware bags and instructions! So, LifeTime, this is an opportunity for improvement for you to go after to reach higher customer satisfaction.
Overall though the shed is very nice. The parts and hardware are all of high quality. Once assembled, the shed feels quite stout. I built it by myself in windy conditions which posed some challenges (I used several large jigs to help hold walls upright until I could reach the point of a sturdy structure. But, once all walls are connected and, particularly the gables, top and trusses are all together, it is one integrated structure).

Just finish assembling my shed which take about 1 full day. The building appears to be quite sturdy. I'm sure it's more than enough shed for my tools and equipment.

I am very happy with the outcome of assembling this shed. It took me about 12 hours of work to assemble with a helper most of the time. For sure a second set of hands is very useful and for some steps, required. Do not skimp on the base! After leveling the ground I was going to prepare a pea gravel base first but then decided on the wood platform which was smart. The assembled shed feels more solid sitting on the wood, plus the assembly process would have been awkward working on the pea gravel.
Be prepared on delivery - this shows up in 3 MASSIVE boxes off the freight truck. Each box is close to 8 feet long and over 200 lbs.
Final product is watertight, doors close correctly, and all shelves locked down. Love it!

The manufacturer needs to correct the instructions for the flooring as we followed the directions and missed a little picture about the floor panels and did not discover this until we had the unit almost completed. Was advised we needed to take apart to correct.. They definitely need a warning on the instruction page that stands out.

This is a good looking, quality built shed. It is a really complicated project to tackle though. The directions are very good, but there are 90 pages of them... and thousands of pieces. It arrives in 3 boxes (which you can handle with a hand truck to move) on a pallet. The individual pieces should be labeled better (there is a weird cross-reference system of stamped parts vs. what they call them in the instructions). It took 2 people (who are good at building things) 20+ hours to put this together.
