Customer Questions & Answers

I have 8 grandchildren ages 1-9. Could this be used as a playhouse? Regular playhouses I've looked at are too small.

Can this be built from the inside or would I need room to walk around it to put it together?

I have 8' 4" width from my side of my home to a fence and am wondering if this shed could be squeezed in there.
Asked by: Muggsman
Walk around and you need two people for the roof.

broken pieces...bought 2nd hand..where to order parts from..what are the model numbers?

I recently bought a similar Lifetime shed from a man that was loosing his house. While taking it apart the roof fell in and some screws broke out (leaving a square piece of plastic missing around several screws about a 1/2inch X 1/2inch in size) do I fix this? Also where would the model number be located on the shed? Where could I get a parts list/instruction manual? Thank you for all the help!!

This was the 3rd plastic shed bought and put together by me and a couple of grand-kids. The first two were Rubbermaid Big Max models. I went with Lifetime's 8 X 12.5 due to the storage capacity. If you are deciding between metal, wood and plastic for your shed, don't be discouraged by the word plastic. Perhaps plastic has been used before to define a cheaply-made product that won't last or perform as it should. That's simply not the case with plastic sheds. My first two have been subjected to hail, wind and snow with not so much as a scratch. I was extremely satisfied with the hail resistance as that storm (Colorado Springs, 07/16) amounted to over a billion dollars in insurance claims. The only property I had that wasn't damaged by the storm were my plastic sheds (and of course, the property stored inside the sheds). Me, an 11 year-old and 6 year-old put this Lifetime shed together in just over 6 hours. Granted, our experience gained from the Big Max sheds was helpful. We didn't erect the included shelving as Edsal storage racks (also purchased from Home Depot) were emplaced. The shed is on brick pavers with a slight downward tilt for water mitigation. That did cause very slight differences when placing the wall panels into the floor. Those minor challenges were overcome with a Dremel and a metal cutting wheel. While not necessary, we also used clear window/siding caulk on every seam and micro-opening just to ensure water tightness and prevention of invading insects. Sure, you can push on a wall panel and it will slightly 'give'. But the final constructed product is solid. The grandkids remarked that we had literally built a house, given the size and stability. There is no reason to think that this Lifetime shed will succumb to environmental conditions as it is pretty much the same as the Big Max sheds. I watched all of the Lifetime shed-building video clips on YouTube while following along with the accompanying user manual before grabbing a tool. That was very helpful when the actual assembly began. I do wish they would have filmed the assembly outdoors, rather than a nice, cozy and windless warehouse. If you do assemble this shed in any sort of breezy conditions, you'll need more 'hands on deck' to just keep the erected panels stable. Overall, great product that will stand up to Mother Nature and give you tons of good storage. Putting it together with grandkids boosted their self-confidence 'through the roof'. Together, we kinda did build a house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shed I installed the shed about 2 weeks ago and love it. After reading reviews of people installing the shed and it's taking hours and even days, I was a little worried, but the install only took me a couple of hours. You could do most of it by yourself, but the roof requires two or more people. The shed has its pros and cons, but the cons can be overseen by how many pros this shed had to offer. My only concern is with the walls and shelves. With the lack of shelves supplied with the shed. I wish there was more shelving option that come with the it for various options and number of shelves. With every product there's always its flaws, but overall it is a great shed!

Not as hard as some people make out to put together, but it does require 2 people. One note of why it didn't get a 5 star is we have it on a concrete slab and it faces south. So the sun hits the doors and the floor when the doors are open. If we leave the doors open for any length of time in the sun, the plastic expands tremendously causing a bow in the floor that can reach almost 4 inches high. It does contract and flatten as it cools again. No way to change that now that it's assembled and in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Difficult to construct Especially the doors. Had a pro help me and we couldn't get the doors to work as they should. Putting any and all of the parts together was difficult. There is no margin for error. There should be 1/16" margin, but there is zero. The base MUST be level for things to fit. Work slow and do it right the first time no matter how arduous is my advice. But a good and sturdy product.

Easy to follow the instructions and assemble took one night to pre build and then my son and I built it the next morning with the afternoon to fill it with my stuff. Like the supper easy assembly not much to dislike maybe the door seal rails but not a big deal really. Definitely met my expectations.

Customer Service levels at the 800# were terrible and no apologies from store or customer support. As far as the shed, 2 people about 7 hours. Menards is a bit further but customer service is much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Attractiove This shed is really durable and sturdy, but really attractive too. The floor is steady and resists dirt, dents or cracks. It's very roomy and useful! We hired a pro to assemble it with very little trouble. Looks like it will last forever. Love it!
