Do I need to reinforce my wooden base with plywood, or is the floor of the shed strong enough to just use wooden beams?

Answer: 
I basically built a deck under mine. I used treated 2x4 with two joists across the base and 5/4 decking (8 boards) for the top evenly spaced and that works great so far. I don't have a pickup and did not want the hassle of messing around with a 4x8 sheet, the wood I used fit right in my SUV. They say to drill a hole in plywood for drainage anyway.

The base is plastic, strong plastic, but plastic nonetheless. I wouldn't put the shed on anything but a sturdy, solid, flat, level base - like 3/4" exterior plywood or a patio, as we did.

Plastic. It is not a square or rectangular skylight It's shaped like a 'V' and is placed as peak of roof. I think each wing of the 'V' is about 5"-6" high. It's made it through a rough winter where we had 30"+ of snow at one time so it is sturdy.

unfortunately, I don't have the details your asking for. What I can comment.
The box is approx: 3.5 * 6 ft.
After it was offloaded, I removed it from the pallet and used a 2 wheel cart under the narrow side to pull it around to the back of the house. It was unwieldy but not extremely heavy, a guess would be ~ 100lbs.
Hope it helps, possibly someone who still has the packing slip could provide the weight

The driver unloaded the truck with a lift-gate using a palled jack. He can push it fairly easy. Be nice to the driver. Smile! and ask if he would be able to drop the pallet where you would like. Maybe offer a bottle of water, cookies, of even some $. We had a cement driveway & walkway so he took ours to the back yard.

Easy enough for one person, 2 people 1/2 the time. If you are going to do projects you have to learn to be synergistic.

By that I mean take your time and don't rush, you will come out with a better result and no injuries. Most of the parts are vinyl and will be exposed to weather when assembled so unboxing them is not a problem. Just make sure you keep all small parts and bags in the parts box in an inside location. Cover with the flattened boxes till you are ready to assemble. I recommend putting them in a shady area as too much heat may warp vinyl. Read Less

Answer: 
I would say it depends on how far away the shed is from the house. I personally have only one gasoline powered device, the rest are electric. If you store the gasoline in approved container away from heat you should be okay no matter where you store it. Baseline I think how you store it is more important than where you store it.

Your local fire or building code might have restrictions on how much of that stuff you can keep in a shed. I suspect that storing gas in a vinyl shed is no less dangerous than storing it in a garage with vinyl siding.

I have my gas cans in the shed and the fumes are a little strong when I open the doors, but they dissipate quickly. It is under my carport so it is not in direct heat or light. I can't remember what the recommendations are, but my guess is they don't recommend it for liability purposes. I've always kept my gas cans in an enclosure though.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 152 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I had previously purchased a 5X8 Lifetime shed (#6406) and have liked it pretty well so I returned for another. This time I bought the 7X4 1/2 shed. All went well except I had difficulty getting the screw holes to align for the roof panels. In particular, where the roof attaches to the front and back side walls there was a slight difference in spacing requiring the end screws to be forced in at an angle. Where the roof panels attach to the side walls, it was hard to get the screws to catch in the appropriate slots due to the roof not setting flat on the wall. The skylight was also difficult - I had to drill holes in the side walls to pull them (and the attached roof panels) closer together so the skylight would seat properly. I believe some of these problems originate in the corner wall panels which fold to 90 degrees on a flexible plastic hinge. This newly-folded plastic wants to remain open and hence the corners are not as tight as they should be for the roof and skylight panels to fit well. I believe the foundation was good - a concrete slab installed by a contractor. Coping with these issues would have been easier if I had helpers (as clearly recommended). But some engineering adjustments in the design could make the roof-skylight installation easier. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shed was a good price and exactly as described. Went together fairly easily and in an afternoon with two or three helping. Materials are sturdy and the color is nice. Holds more than we thought which was a bonus. October 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 7 ft. X 4.5 ft. Storage The shed looks great. I have many compliments. Love it! October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks nice The shed looks really nice, but do not expect it to be as sturdy as wooden product. We built in standing wooden shelves all around, so as a "shell" it works just fine. We will see how it will hold over time and once it starts raining.... September 20, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by well it IS a storage shed... If i had to do it all over again....I wouldn't. This was a tremendously tedious and patience trying project and yes I did follow the directions. Even then several times I had to back up a few steps to loosen some parts (even after the directions indicated that the parts could be tightened) because the holes were just off enough so they wouldn't fit or hold. I had to elongate holes just to get two parts, that weren't connected to anything else, to fasten. We're talking about plastic which is 99% of this shed. Its basically a large Rubermaid type container. While it's not bad looking its just not going to hold up as well as a wood shed but then again it doesn't cost as much. The flooring is nominal, so you'll need a full concrete slab or wood platform to sit it on and I screwed it into the platform we built because there's not much weight to it. I'm interested to see how it holds up in the winter when daytime rain turns into ice at night if some of these plastic parts pop off from each other. September 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the shed - assembly not fun! I love the shed and it is worth the effort it took to assemble it. It went together fine except the Skylight. If it is not perfectly aligned it does not go together properly. I think this shed would have been water resistant but mine will not. Took 2 men 5 hours to assemble August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great shed Love my shed, sturdy, spacey, top quality material February 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No surprises. My husband and I put this shed together in 6 hours. The only snag I had in following the picture directions was fitting the roof clips into their slots, but with a little experimenting, I finally got it. I wish they were metal and not plastic, but that is my biggest complaint. We poured the base slab before we got the kit. I would say if you wait, the floor panels are nicely marked where anchor bolts go, so you could sink bolts in the concrete right where they belong instead of drilling them later. I give it only 4 stars because I think the walls could have been thicker, but overall, I would recommend. May 14, 2014
