Great product from install to function, little required maintenance and overall appeal. Took abit to get it together. Only thing to make sure is that your base is solid and level as would be the case in any building project and then it fits together easily with time taken to look over the details first.

Almost perfect in every aspect from packing to the installation of the last item. Everything fit and holes for screws lined up well. The instructions were good but lacked detail in a couple of diagrams. No missing parts and in fact had extra screws. Lifetime sheds may be a bit more expensive but this is truly a case of you get what you pay for. It goes without saying but I will anyway, build a good, solid, level base and this shed will be up and ready to use in about 5 hours max time for 2 people. I would highly recommend any Lifetime shed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by John2013 Very nice shed
Very nice shed for the cost. If you follow the instructions its very strong shed too when completed.
My cons first:The color is suppose to be brown roof and doors with tan siding only and no other choice of colors..this is what I wanted since my home is brown and tan..but unpacking it had a dark gray roof and doors with light gray siding..DUH! Also if you read the ad on HD website it takes 10 business days to progress plus 4-7 delivery days to get it..its really 17 business days plus eight weekend days...took 25 days to get it!
The pro's: its a good strong shed water tight and plenty of room when finished. Cost to me ok but I get a 10% military discount.
Took me ten hours to put together/plus wood foundation, five hours on a Saturday-five hours on a Sunday. Sat only did the wood foundation with pressure treated wood/cement blocks and the floor and walls ( I braced the walls so next day no problem if wind picked up over night). Sunday finished it all..was in no hurry and did this all alone ( I build new homes for a living so easy for me).
Tips: If doing a wood foundation make 2x4 x 12" angles at each corner to anchor it with lag screws besides a 3/4 'plywood flooring and double up the front and rear cross headers for strength..those anchor screws holds better this way ( but don't anchor until shed is completed ( need to adjust as you build).The shed is delivered on a long 8 ft by 3 ft pallet..cut the pallet at the mid 2x4 and use this (about 21 inches) with three 2x4 x8ft studs to build a work bench for it ( be about 36 inches high see my picture. There are bags galore with different numbers for screws..really 90% of the screws are the same size..most for walls and roof (plenty of screws left over after finished).. only smallest screw size for floor panels, then next smallest for sky ligths, then steel bar over inside of front door (seems the longest). The front doors will need braces if installing alone can be done with 2x4x8 lumber and step ladders ( I did it with no sweat). Adjust doors when all is finished by instructions it will level out (shimming left rear to right front etc)..Then when 100% sure and finished you anchor it all.Windows and shelves very last even after the anchoring.
MAIN TIP..that foundation has to be very very level and squared or your wasting your time!
I added a work shop light over the work (pallet) bench..there are those two plug holes to run a ext cord for electric at top rear wall..even with the work bench I never drilled or screwed into the walls not needed, at top of most walls are holes where you can place peg board hooks..I used them to hang tools like levels, squares etc.( not the screw holes these are above them even). Can always make shelves using those screw holes too.
My pictures show my first five hours of work with finished foundation and support braces of lumber for walls ( no fall down at night since I had to stop for darkness) then a finished picture with a small 4ft by 3ft ramp since off ground level of 4 inches or so, then my work bench inside view made of the pallet that the shed came delivered with and three 2x4 x 8ft studs.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by KenK Product was a very good buy but it could be even better.
I was satisfied with the purchase and would recommend. There were 2 things that should be done to improve this kit. 1) The instructions were acceptable and could be easily followed. What would be better is if the parts list, the parts identified in the actual instruction steps, and the number stamped on the part itself were all the same. They were not and that slowed things down a little. 2) The plastic around the screw holes needs to be heavier. The instructions indicated not to use a powered screw driver. The screw holes could be easily stripped even when a regular screw driver was used. Need to be real careful
